Lil Kim Publicist Responds To Tax Debt Story

lil kim 23 Lil Kim Publicist Responds To Tax Debt Story

Drama.

It’s a word which seems to encase rapper Lil Kim at every look and turn. And today is no different.

This AM, TMZ ran a story detailing the pint sized star’s comparatively mammoth tax debts. A story the 37 year old’s team have shed further light on.

Find out what a rep from  Queen Bee’s camp have to say after the jump…

Alleged publicist for the rapper, CJ, emailed media outlets the following:

“It is a known fact that for some time TMZ has been running stories on celebrities or well known persons of interest and providing the general public and media with publicly accessible information on random celebrities and their private matters with the internal revenue service,this does not come as a surprise, as it is Tax Season and is a sell-able media opportunity,it is for no other reason that Kimberly Jones(aka: LIL KIM) is now the target of such random media scrutiny.As it pertains to the story that was ran onTMZ(February 4,2012)regarding Lil Kim, we would like to inform fans,media, and the general public,that LIL KIM has hired professional attorneys to handle this matter(embellished by all standards via the media), and that she,along with her team of legal experts are working cooperatively and diligently with the I.R.S and federal authorities to amicably resolve the situation.

————————-

Meh. I’m more concerned with the atrocious grammar and punctuation. It seems Ms. Jones has been too busy partying and recording material no one ever hears to screen those “representing” her.

Being the supporters we are of ol’ Kimmy, we just hope she gets her act together and gives us the true follow-up to ‘The Naked Truth’ we’ve been waiting on.

Your thoughts?

    aww poor lil Kim fans :( Tha grape juice is not hating they are just posting the same TMZ story on Kim as many other sites will do by monday. Sry your hurt by the reality of her taxation problems. But don’t hate on the grape juice for posting a credible story. If the story was not true Kim’s PR person would not have responded so quickly. Notice it didn’t state that the reports were false just that Kim’s legal team is working on the tax problems. Funny how these artists come out talking they rich, they been in the game this long they paper is stacked but can’t even pay their taxes from years back until now. hope this not another Wesley Snipes situation!

    Me thinks this is why Madame Kim is going hard at these female rappers trying to get her paper up, build interest in her career so labels want to make a deal and shows want to book her. It would be better for her to join forces than to divide an fail to concur. Perhaps Kim should hold off on the plastic surgeries and expensive labels.
    Kim is giving to much ammunition to the competition. Bet Nicki is ready to but this info into a new song right now.

    She needs to fix that soon. Now that it is public the IRS will be coming after her. She has been lucky, The IRS lets a lot of people fall thru the cracks. It took years before they got Wesley Snipes. A million dollars…somebody in her camp had to snitch. This is some prison level s*** if its true. This is why I get on Kim. Everytime she gets close to success she f**** up. Its not fair to the people who love her or the fans who support her. This is just sad.

    I see people now want to bring Wesley Snipes n this but i was told by a Delusional Nicki fan, that TGJ only talks about music artists. Last time i checked Jermaine Dupri and Ron Isley were musicians and TGJ didnt smear their tax problems around. We all know why this pissy site did this, its because K.I.M SHITS ON little miss Nicki. The bish isnt on K.I.M’s Level at all, i dont give a damn how many lame ass pop hits she get. Why dont u dumb ass Nicki fans suck some d****, like how h** ass Nicki became relevant.

    Kim been said that she owe the IRS when she was doing Dancing with The Stars. The bad thing is that she don’t have new money coming in by the barrel. It looks unlikely to change. The general public don’t have any interest in her or her music. I know her diehard fans go hard for her but that is not enough.

    Instead of supporting a woman beater and putting off her EP, and wearing those expensive clothing and rocking a 25k Birkin Bag, why don’t she pay her taxes? She thinks she’s above the law and time and time again she gets nailed. When will Kimberly Jones grow up? How are you going to come for other rappers when your ass owes a milli to the IRS? Wasn’t she a federal inmate at one point? And if so, isn’t she on parole/probation or whatever? Does she not understand that this could be a violation of her parole/probation?

    AND AND AND

    Why are Kim fans bringing up Nicki in all this? Nicki is working, paying taxes, investing her money into other money making opportunities, touring, having major chart success and receiving accolades from her peers. Kim/ Not so much. You Kim stans should worry about Kim and not Nicki, since Nicki is doing her thing and KIM IS NOT. Stop being pressed! Come at me if you wanna but know that I only speaketh the truth. You will deal. :lol:

    @HATERZSTAYPRESSED…. FIRST AND FOREMOST, WHENEVER SOMETHING IS PRINTED ON THIS SITE OR ANY OTHER SITE WHETHER IT BE GOOD OR BAD NICKI FANS FLOCK IN THE COMMENTS BEING DISRESPECTFUL LIKE SO BY THE BUNDELS. AND THE SAME THING WITH KIM FANS. BOTH FAN BASES DO THE SAME THING YAP ABOU THE OPPOSITE SIDE. THE PROBELM THAT GRAPEJUICE HAS WITH LIL KIM IS SOMETHING DEEP ROOTED. AND YOU CAN HONESTLY SEE IT. WE DONT KNOW IF IT’S COMING FROM THE FACT THAT DEEP DOWN THEY ARE ANTICIPATING NEW MOVES FOR KIM SO THEY ARE TRYING TO LIGHT FIRE UNDER HER , IF THEY ARE TRYING TO LURE LIL KIM FANS TO THE SITE BECAUSE THEY KNOW NICKI & KIM FANS ALIKE WILL POST ON THE TOPIC CONCERNING KIM, OR IF THEY JUST REALLY ON THE LOW ADMIRE LIL KIM BUT ARE FRONTING AS IF THEY DONT TO FANS OF THEIR BLOG. FORGET THE STAN WARS. ALL THAT ASIDE YOU CAN CLEARLY SEE HOW THEY CONSISTENTLY TARGET LIL KIM AND THEN REPORT MOSTLY NEGATIVE PRESS ABOUT HER. EVEN WHEN THEY SPEAK ON THE GOOD THINGS THEY WILL TRY TO THROW SOME UNDER HAND COMMENT AT THE END OF THE ARTICLE. JUST LIKE WITH THE TAX SITUATION, THEY POSTED A PIC OF NICKI TO CREATE THE BACK AND FORTH ARGUING FROM BOTH SIDES. LIL KIM HAS BEEN VERY QUIET AS OF LATE ABOUT ALOT OF THINGS AND HAS NOT SAID A WORD LATELY. GRAPEJUICE WILL TARGET NOT ONLY LIL KIM BUT HER CAMP ALSO IF NEED BE. ITS SOME KIND OF VENDETTA THEY HAVE WITH HER. BUT WHAT’S FUNNY ABOUT ALL THIS IS DURING THE BLACK FRIDAY ERA THEY WERE ONE OF THE FIRST ONES TO ASK FOR AN ITERVIEW FROM LIL KIM. THE EDITORS OF BLOG JUICE CLEARLY HAVE SOME ISSUES WITHIN THEMSELVES TO ATTACK ONE PERSON NONE STOP. WITH ALL THE CELEBS NEGATIVE & POSITIVE PRESS OVER THE COURSE OF 2 YEARS THEY COULD CHOOSE FROM THEY CHOOSE TO SHED THE SPOTLIGHT WOMAN. AT THE END OF DAY ALL B.S ASIDE LIL KIM IS A HUMAN BEING JUST LIKE ALL OF US.

    @D-ROCK I must admit that I have noticed TGJ targets Lil’ Kim, as they target Rihanna and I suspect the reason why is because Lil’ Kim’s fans will flock to the site in order to defend Kim and/or shade Nicki. It drives up hits and skyrockets the Alexa ratings for the site. I was a former blog owner so I know the ins and outs of the game when it comes to hits, ratings, google adsense and adwords, and advertising. So you can’t really blame the blog owners for generating income and business. Kim does the same thing by putting out diss records and interviews, and Nicki does the very same thing when she engages the back and forth.

    It’s a numbers game and the fans are the commodity. At the end of the day, we are the numbers that round out the bottom line. It’s a feeding chain.

    Yes, there are times that the shade against Kim is uncalled for and I can admit that. But it’s his blog and he can do whatever he wants.

    malibu barbie, i really thought you were smarter than that.

    How can someone’s money be long but owes 1 million dollars in taxes, dating back from 2002. Surely, if the person’s money was that long they would have paid it off as soon they became aware they owed money.

    Fact of the matter is this, Kim isnt long sighted and was too busy focused on street cred when she should have been worrying about how she was going to expand her horizons.

    This is a lesson we all can learn from, get your money right!

    Money can be long. It’s called being stingy my dear. She hasn’t paid since 2002?? But in 2003 didn’t she release a platinum selling album and Billboard hits? I think she is stingy or just doesn’t take proper responsibility.

    She’s broke but can afford all latest labels products? Nah, her ass worth mills, b**** is stingy
