Throw Shade If You Can't Get Paid

Simon & Schuster Inc. is suing Lil’ Kim for taking their money and not delivering the goods. The publisher says Lil’ Kim, born Kimberly Denise Jones, got $40,000 in 2003 for a novel that was due June 2004. She never turned it in.

Lil Kim's attorney issued this statement:

"We are disappointed that Simon & Schuster has made the decision to file this lawsuit,” says Kim's lawyer Bernard H. Jackson III. "[She] has had every intention to fulfill her obligations under the agreement from day one but there were certain resources that are standard for any book publisher to provide that we felt were not available in order for her to complete the project. Many attempts have been made to resolve this matter privately by Kim and she still looks forward to doing so."

She ate that.
