Lil’ Kim’s Publicist Blasts MediaTakeOut for Calling Her Face “Distorted”
Earlier this week on Wednesday, Lil Kim appeared on MTV’s RapFix to introduce her new artist, Tiffany Foxx. After her appearance, the gossip site MediaTakeOut wrote an unflattering report about Kim’s looks.
The post, which featured a photo of Kim leaving the set, was a false portrayal of her facial features. The story read: "Rapper Lil Kim Shows Off Her New Look . . . She Put On Some WEIGHT . . . And It Looks GOOD ON HER!!! People have been HATING on Kim for a minute now. . . . but she's still doing her thing, making her money, and looking GOOD!!!"
Lil Kim’s publicist, C.J. Carter, referred to the story as “fictitious, malicious and despicable.” However, she did not say if any action from Team Lil’ Kim will take place.
“As of yesterday a story surfaced on the ever so popular, but NEVER credible blog site Media Takeout, the story implied that Grammy Award Winning HipHopstress Lil Kim was physically distorted and even went so far as to graphically edit photos to add some type of validity to their story, that can only be described as fictitious, malicious, and despicable.”
Carter went on to explain that Kim’s team is taking MTO’s story very seriously. She says they have a personal vendetta against Kim who is referred to as "a beautiful rose."
"We would like to inform fans, the media, and the general public that this is nothing more than the blog site doing its best to conjure up much needed publicity and what better way to do so, than to take an American music icon and create a fictitious platform in which to disrespect and humiliate,” she added. “We at Team Lil Kim are not taking this lying down and are taking this matter very seriously. The photos below are from the MTV appearance and clearly depict a beautiful and soft Lil Kim that furthermore proves that anyone with access to a server and an audience can create filth and present it to the masses as credible editorial content.”
