The New York Daily News hears that New York production company Red Moxie – which videotaped Lil’ Kim and her handlers during her federal trial – is trying to stop the 29-year-old rapper from selling the show for a documentary-type series without proper rights to the possibly damaging behind-the-scenes footage.
The New York Daily News hears that Lil’ Kim – who faces up to 20 years in jail for her recent perjury conviction – is already pitching a reality show about post-prison life. “She’s teamed up with Queen Latifah’s production company, Flavor Unit Entertainment, and she’s demanding $1 million for it,” a spy revealed. “VH1 thought that was funny, given that they usually pay $5,000 to $10,000 for that sort of thing.”
The New York Daily News reports rappers Anthony Jeffries and Vincent Hart, both 23 and known as The Advocates, are suing Lil’ Kim for $100,000 each. They say they rapped on her hit album ‘La Bella Mafia’, but never got paid.
Lil’ Kim’s perjury conviction so far hasn’t stopped the rapper’s VH1 reality show ‘Lil’ Kim’s Hollyhood Makeover’ from going forward. The pilot for the show, in which the pneumatic rap diva gives regular women a glam new look, is nearly finished editing. “I’m very excited about it,” VH1 development honcho Jim Ackerman tells The New York Daily News. “Once we have a completed pilot, it goes to Brian Graden, the president of entertainment, and he’s the guy who decides whether we ultimately move forward.” Kimberly Jones faces sentencing on June 24th.

Amy Linden of the Village Voice weighed in on Lil’ Kim getting convicted on Thursday of conspiracy and perjury for lying to a grand jury. Linden writes, “Legal insiders have already predicted that—if she gets any jail time at all—Kim could expect to be sentenced to less than 5 years; but make no mistake, the Brooklyn-born chick who made a career out of being nasty is seriously fu**ed.” Read more.
