US Government: “Lil Kim Hasn’t Paid Her Taxes”

Published: Saturday 4th Feb 2012 by David


With a career spanning almost twenty years, and credited for writing every song she has ever released in that period, you could be forgiven for thinking Lil Kim was simply swimming in cash by now.

Well she’s not.

Because, for the last ten years- the ‘How Many Licks‘ Rapper has not been paying her taxes and now owes a seven figure sum to the US Government.

Full story below…


The above  figure is the amount Kim owes to the US Government for not paying her taxes since 2002, despite numerous attempts to retrieve the money owed from her in recent years.

 TMZ explains:

Lil Kim’s tax problems are well-documented and go back nearly 10 years. According to documents filed with the L.A. Recorder’s Office, Kim owes money every year from 2002-2009. The 2009 amount, $86347.85, was just recently tacked on — bringing her total $1,026,862.42.

Maybe if she spent less time worrying about Nicki Minaj and more time on her own problems, she wouldn’t be in this embarrassing situation.

Here’s to hoping the sales from ‘Black Friday‘ serve to help her during these tough times.

  5. MobWife February 4, 2012

    who gives a damn. shes still a legend and at least she didnt have to screw her boss to get a deal.

  6. BasicBitchesGetNoLove February 4, 2012

    no tgj, so riddle me this, lets all read between the lines.
    Its clear that though kim is credited on her songs, she actually pays the REAL writers any money she earns from them because there is no way a song that gets as much airplay as lady marmalade is not helping her out in some way.

    this is a lesson to be learned- work hard while your young so you dont be a basic b**** when you’re nearly 40.

  7. White girl mob February 4, 2012

    I feel bad for lil Kim 🙁 I don’t know what she is going threw in her personal life but I hope she comes back stronger than ever.. Cus something is wrong

    This right here puts the icing on the cake!

  8. Crosky February 4, 2012

    We already knew this. NEXT.

  9. BasicBitchesGetNoLove February 4, 2012

    so this b**** was acting like she was a boss b**** coming for Nicki, dressed in designer when she cant even afford to pay her taxes?! No no no no no no. I have never heard of this before.
    Its one thing being broke- but to owe

  10. BasicBitchesGetNoLove February 4, 2012

    .. but to owe a million dollars in taxes, this is mad.
    i dont understand, why was she focused on nicki when she a problem like this to deal with.

    SHE REALLY IS A STUPID H**. If her ass was broke in 2002 she would have known she was broke in 2000 and 2001 for her to decide not to pay her taxes, so why in GODS name did she leave Atlantic, it makes no sense to me.

  11. MinajMania February 4, 2012


    You NEVER know whats going on behind closed doors. So kim has been broke EVEN before she became a flop?! wtf! She probably went hard on Nicki to distract from the situation. S***. like they say, all that glisters isnt gold.


  12. theboss February 4, 2012

    Actually mobwife she did. Have you not seen BIG’s movie? And it’s well known that she jumped around between Diddy, biggie and the crew.

  13. Lady Harris (Queen Of The CSquad) February 4, 2012

    Ciara would never…

  14. ZontBeMod February 4, 2012

    who else feels like bombarding teamlilkim with this link on twitter

  15. RomanAZolanski February 4, 2012

    @MOBWIFE Actually she didn’t have to work for her career, she sucked Biggie’s d*** and he handed it to her and co-wrote Hard Core.

  16. RomanAZolanski February 4, 2012

    @ZONTBEMOD lmao I do!

  17. Disturbed viewer February 4, 2012

    First let me just say I think the lil Kim bashing is getting quite old. I like lil Kim I like nicki Minaj no Kim is not what she once was but it seems as though only positive posts are made for nm with the exception of the obvious horrid single choices she’s made. I think nm is great for now but she’s a gimmick can I actually imagine a Barbie doll act ten years from now?! Exactly. And yes lil Kim should hang it up for now everyone has there time. But obviously if she owes a milli in back taxes for ten years she has made a lot of money so u can’t deny that either. Let’s look at the bigger picture. One of the smartest artists out there to me is Chris ludacris bridges. He started out branded himself knowing that music won’t always be the read maker so he has tapped into acting he has two restaurants headphones and more because he knows the way the game works. Lil Kim is doing her but she needs to brand outside of the music game to earn her respect back. As far a nicki se is still trying to find herself and her label is taking a current hit and runnin with it but I assure u it won’t last forever. No disrespect to any Stan’s but as a person who has an insider background on the industry I’m just trying to give an honest look into how the big machine works.

  18. ZontBeMod February 4, 2012

    romanazolanski, lets get em!!!!!

    just search teamlilkim in twitter and @ them with thislool. doing it now.

  19. Lax February 4, 2012

  21. edubb February 4, 2012

  22. BAA February 4, 2012

    This site is becoming so PATHETIC!! Why didnt yall dumb ass post Wesley Snipes, Ron Isely, Jermaine Dupri and other stars debt towards the Government. I tell u why; because u F*** are mad K.I.M, THE QUEEN BEE SHITS ALL OVER NICKI WACK ASS CAREER lmao Lil Kim didnt have to use fake s*** to sell records. I like Nicki and all but the bish isnt f*ckin with K.I.M.! She paved the way for Nicki and if we took a Hip Hop/Rap Poll from real Hip Hop fans on the Greatest Female Rapper Ever…K.I.M will now and 5years from now b ahead of Nicki. Nicki isnt a Rap Icon nor Legend. K.I.M will EAT that bish alive, when it comes to spitting! KIM didnt get the name QUEEN BEE for nothing. She got the name because she was Raw and The First Hardcore Rap Bish Ever, to spit Gangsta s***, while s*** and selling records….while Nicki dont know s*** about that. Nicki is like a little ass girl compared to K.I.M THE QUEEN B****!!

  23. ZontBeMod February 4, 2012

    to the above comment, this is a music site so they would nthave posted on the people you mentioned, AND IF YOU STILL THINK kim is shitting on anyone i would urge you to renew your medication.

    Lool. Kim has been broke since before Nicki knew she wanted to be a rapper LMAO!

  24. ZontBeMod February 4, 2012

  30. NotHereForYou February 4, 2012

    I’m sure its nothing to worry about for her.I mean look @ all the success she has had with Paypal.haha!

  31. NotHereForYou February 4, 2012

    Surely she can afford to pay off that amount by the way she went on about her Paypal success..ahahahaha

  32. ThatLATEJuice February 4, 2012

    If she didn’t pay her taxes in TEN years…..She’d STILL be locked up and paying out the ass. It’s sad when people reach so hard that they forget to think, “Does this make sense? Can I pull this off?”.
    Poor gerls.

  33. Jenna February 4, 2012

    This website is being so unnecessarily mean towards her. Its almost starting to look like a personal thing. **********FYI*********** Just because someone was not paying their taxes does NOT mean they have no money. A lot of celebs get caught up like this. GOOGLE is your friend. Please do NOT TAKE THIS BLOG SERIOUSLY. IT IS A PERSONAL VENDETTA BETWEEN A TGJ STAFF AND SOMEONE FROM KIM’S TEAM.

  34. Those That Cannot Do, Stan February 4, 2012

    …well damn.

    Shaking my head, this isn’t aimed at just little Kim but all rich individuals that refuse to pay taxes.

    Stop being so damn greedy. You already have 10x more than the average citizen but it’s not enough because you don’t want to contribute back to the country you live in. Damn shame. There is no excuse to not pay taxes when you’re making millions.

    Ironic Kim was working with IRS while hiding all her money from the I.R.S. Not a hood look Kim

  35. Kaipretty February 4, 2012

    Lies lil Kim taxes are posted on new jersey taxes and property taxes says paid in full so don’t believe da lies

  36. ismokeuchoke February 4, 2012

  37. AmbeRussell February 4, 2012

    i just find it sooo funny how team minaj always say stop talking bout the past n tell me what she is doing nwo as far as success goes, but are the 1st to post about the rumors n the negative s*** about kim’s past.

  38. Kia February 4, 2012

    @ISMOKEUCHOKE BIggie was her bofriend at the time dumb@**.They grew up together.Y’all Nicki fans really be showing y’all age.

  39. A February 4, 2012

    TGJ should watch out if this story was fabricated then Kim has every right to sue this website for defamation of character. It is pretty clear TGJ has a vendetta out for Kim. Not a fan of Kim or Niki but it is clear TGJ want a war to erupt like Biggie and Tupac.

  40. Itsme2002 February 4, 2012

    Damn Lil Kim get mentioned on this site EVERYDAY…you all dig DEEP to find stories…and everything u find is false…
