Lil Kim has released a statement addressing claims that she pocketed $20,000 and then refused to fulfill six concert obligations for Abstrakt Visions Entertainment.
The company states that they paid the Brooklyn emcee $20,000 to complete six dates in London from November 7-14.
However, they accuse Kim of pulling out due to a nosebleed and returning to the U.S. with all the show proceeds.
Speaking through a representative, Lil Kim explained to AllHipHop.com that she never received any money from Abstrakt Visions Entertainment, and is the victim of an unethical promotion campaign.
“We do not have a contract with Abstrakt Visions Entertainment and never received any money from them,” stated Kim’s spokesperson. “Abstrakt Visions Entertainment is in the wrong for falsely promoting Lil Kim in London and will be dealt with accordingly. This matter is in the hands of our legal team.”
Lil Kim’s management confirmed there was a business arrangement reached for the concert, but maintain no money was exchanged and the rapper left when promoters failed to deliver a schedule.
