Lil Kim Rep Blasts Media Outlets For ‘Photo Shop’ Conspiracy

Published: Friday 8th Mar 2013 by David

She’s the Rap icon with a legacy with rooted in the core of Hip Hop itself. However, despite her long list of successes scored between ’96 and the early noughties,

Lil Kim has seen her brand overshadowed by reports surrounding her aesthetic. More specifically, reports that suggest she has dabbled in cosmetic surgery.

Now, after the above picture of her leaving a promotional appearance two days ago was sent to media outlets across the globe, she has hit out at them with claims that the image has been ‘photo shopped’ to damage her brand.

Full story below…

In a statement released by one of her representatives, the following is explained:

“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. 

We at Team Lil’ Kim are not taking this lying down and are taking this matter very seriously”.

While giving no indication as to what they meant by the last line, the statement – released exclusively to E!- marks the latest time where her team has accused news outlets of altering images of her, following her appearance BET’s ‘Rip The Runway’ event in 2012.

 Quite interestingly, one urban website in particular has been targeted by the Rapper’s camp as the main culprits for the conspiracy, even though numerous media outlets shared the same images with their readers.

Outlets, that include the UK’s ‘Daily Mail‘ and Ariana Huffington‘s ‘Huffington Post‘, both of whom would have sourced the said images directly from photographers at ‘the scene’.

What’s also interesting, is that her camp are yet to respond to a live footage released by Time Warner’s ‘TMZ’ last month, which sees the Rapper during a trip to Los Angeles- sporting a ‘similar look’ to the one sported in the now controversial image above.

Watch below:

Was that photo shopped too?

    The delusion is real in these streets, she clearly messed up her face and can’t believe it so she’s blaming the press. Girl, look in the mirror and see the TRUTH. The only person who is scheming is the doctor everytime he puts a knife to your face and makes you look an Asian with sunburn.

    Gurr Bye.

  6. MEAddict March 8, 2013

    I’m confused. Kim I love and respect you but this is getting out of hand, this is what your face looks like. I mean damn, you’d think she’d own a mirror.

  7. Holy Hive March 8, 2013

    Lmao TMZ shaded tf outta kim omgeeeeeeeee

  8. LanaDelSlay March 8, 2013

    Just no. Your face is screwed because you screwed with it, not because of no damn blog. Of all the celebs to tamper with they chose you right? Come on now, if you don’t like what you look like take it up with the quack doctor you let work on your face.

  9. JanetXone March 8, 2013

    I’ll take her seriously when she disses TMZ for dragging her.

    • TJ March 8, 2013

      If she’s smart she won’t. TMZ are the type to locate the surgeon & post all her scans, charts & receipts for all the surgeries.

      • RhymeReason March 10, 2013

        That would be illegal because of client confidentiality.

  10. NickiSaidDis March 8, 2013

    This is just like the story about the Emperor’s new clothes. The people around her are enablers to her crimes against plastic surgery .

    • Yvonne March 21, 2013

      Well said!!.
      Question: Do WE really hate ourselves that much to “become” entirely different persons?????

  11. Monstarebel March 8, 2013

    Kim please!!! You look horrible on video& they cant alter your face on a video therefore stfu & realise that you look a f****** mess

    • atlasshrugged March 26, 2013

      Exactly!

  12. dielilkim March 8, 2013

    obviously you can’t photoshop a video. She mad everybody found out about her plastic surgery. GAME OVER Kim you’re still irrevelvant, Iggy Azeala is killing youu times ten!

    • sparkle March 17, 2013

      uhm yes you guys, you can alter a video, you can make people look better or worst there are programs in adobe and other software conversion tools, but regardless of that, her looks are not because anyone but her has tampered with them . . vivica, lil kim and mariah look not soo good anymore. . .people of color dont need all that . . they crackng their own black . . tamar braxton starting to look suspecty too, . . but yeah guys you can change video image for the better or the worst. .

      • emmasu August 11, 2013

        I Agree!

        People of color don’t need plastic surgery as long as they don’t waste their health in drugs including nicotine and alcohol and the harder drugs.

        If a Melanin dominant person lives a healthy lifestyle they can look good and young long into their elder years.

  13. BlancoDeLaFamilia March 8, 2013

    But Kim, you can’t photoshop a video though.

  14. My Forehead Tho March 8, 2013

    Dead @ her thinking that blog sites need her to bring in ratings.

    B**** your ugly, so why complain about a picture showing you as such -_-

    • FAF March 8, 2013

      Not to mention she has an instagram where she looks the same way ! SMH !

  15. Monstarebel March 8, 2013

    On a lighter note Kim used to be a beautiful woman idk why she got plastic surgery i feel for her i know she regrets getting it done 🙁

  16. King B>Rihanna March 8, 2013

    gurl! you need more people.

  17. HIAM (Blackout 2.0) March 8, 2013

    Delusion is such a b****. Nicki if you ever see this please listen to me. DO NOT HAVE ANY MORE PLASTIC SURGERY. You look great and you don’t want to end up like Gangnamita Stylandra over here.

  18. SheTriedIt March 8, 2013

    Sooooo…TGJ, y’allmreally gone sit here and act like she didnt post a bunch of side-by-side and raw unedited pics to backup her claim? Onesided “journalism” at its finest.

    • WomanToWoman March 8, 2013

      Honey no. Explain how she looks in the video for me. Those side by side pictures are the ones SHE edited. The real tea is in the video which you can’t edit.

      • Kaye March 22, 2013

        Church!

  19. WomanToWoman March 8, 2013

    I’m not even dealing right now. Like really yall, we gotta pray for honesty from our friends at all times. Her pals got her thinking she looks so snatched when she looks like Sabrina’s cat Salem.

  25. SheTriedIt March 8, 2013

    A video from last month, hun. She was just on RapFix and MTV posted pics immediately. The pics she “edited”, the pics MTV posted and her appearance on LIVE TV match up. Remember, you cant “photoshop a video”. MTV has it in its entirety online. Kim looks bad but NOT that damn bad.

    • SheTriedIt March 8, 2013

      Oh and that was for WOMANTOWOMAN. This busted ass site and its annoying ass popups messed me up.

    • msteefromdc March 9, 2013

      She has altered her face..yes we all know this…just let it go..but for people to post these images of her is so wrong. clearly someone did something to make her look extra huge in the face. I saw the real pics on your website. She just did a runway show and those pictures were nice so i guess she gained like 40 lbs in 2 weeks. cuz that’s what this pic looks like.

  26. Drakeisha March 8, 2013

  31. OK March 8, 2013

    Kim used to be cute. She looks awful now, with or without Photoshop. I shudder to think what her face will look like 10-20 years from now–if she still HAS a face left, that is!

  32. DeezNuts March 8, 2013

  34. Mark111 March 8, 2013

    This chic is SOOOOOOO delusional. Then I guess every photo and video is photo shopped and edited to make you look f***** up. What’s next, it’s not your face, it’s our eyes that is messed up? I bet she would say that. Nicki didn’t kill Kim’s career, KIM killed her career. And what the f*** is Team Kim? I bet they’re bunch of single mothers whores judging by her lyrics from older songs. Kim was never a good rapper unless she was rapping about sucking or riding a d*** and now that she look like a damn pokemon, she can’t even pull that off anymore.

  35. FAF March 8, 2013

    Girl what ?! Do you see beyonce getting on tumblr for edited pictures of her with a ballsack ? When you are a QUEEN u have to time to argue about photoshopped pics. Seriously, Kim get it together ! SMH !

  36. CHUDDS March 8, 2013

    LMAO! B**** please! Why would anyone waste their time by photoshopping your already HORRIBLE pics? Just admit that you’re a self-hating, plastic surgery addicted, has-been B****! I used to love Kim back in the day, but I can’t deal with a b**** with hella bark and no bite. I mean, this b**** really wanted a Latina to portray her in “Notorious”. Now tell me that isn’t self hate. Girl you look a MESS. You messed your face up something TERRIBLE. If anything, people should be photoshopping your pics to the point where you actually look easy on the eye. Miss me with the delusion Kim!

    • Diamondshell August 27, 2013

      OMG………….somebody agree’s with me on all those named! Lil Kim do look like that……..F…CK`D UP! Her and Vivica should really go back when they started and evaluate their looks then versus now and tell us if they think they look better now than back then! And all these years we all have been talking about M.J. tearing his face up and Kim look like his sister Latoya and she know DAMN well Latoya’s face is messed up! (wish I was the doctor that got they loot). Kim had a cute face and bomb lil shape when she came into the game and now look……….umph, umph, umph!

  37. Tisha March 8, 2013

    This is why Kim’s life will never be right.

    When you can look in the f****** mirror and not even see the truth staring back at you what f****** hope at a career do you have left?

    Wow son, it takes balls to call liar on the media…and those balls were clearly sewn into her cheeks.

  38. ENOUGH ONIKA (KMART QUEEN) March 8, 2013

    Kim….it’s YOUR face, not the media..

  39. You Wanna Bey Me March 9, 2013

    nah boo, that’s u! so cut it! 😀

  40. You Wanna Bey Me March 9, 2013

    im getting so sick and tired of re-typing my info to post on this s***** site, get it together.

    • Monstarebel March 9, 2013

      Im with you babe that s*** is annoying

  41. Drew March 9, 2013

    I’ve seen some really bad images of Lil Kim and i’ve seen some really good images of her too. Sometimes she wears too much make up and her hair is not so great at times but it’s her make up artist & her hair stylist fault for that. And as far as photoshopping the images do look a lil altered compared to the ones Kim showed. I saw Lil Kim & Tiffany Foxx on MTV’s RapFix Live on Wednesday and she looked good but the picture that was shown on these blogs were not so great, so i don’t know…

    • msteefromdc March 9, 2013

      exactly…so if people did their homework…people would know the truth..but anytime someone tries to come for lil kim these barbz take it and run with it. so let them hate. no matter how much we tell them the pictures are altered they won’t believe us..all they see is nicki

    • Anne March 9, 2013

      ‘Good’ images of Kim? Kim hasn’t looked good in a long time, not since all of the surgery. Like I said below they may have slightly altered her image but all they did was take it from bad to worse. As for the times that she manages to take a ‘half decent’ photo, that’s all I’ll give her. She has had too much surgery and looks way to crazy to have any photos actually come out ‘good’ unless they have been generously altered in her favor.

  42. the real xoxo March 9, 2013

    She HAS messed up her face.
    however, if you watch the VIDEOS of these events she doesnt look as f***** up as the pics suggest.

  43. TRUTH March 9, 2013

    SAD!

  44. Anne March 9, 2013

    After looking at the other photos and the video I think it’s a possibility that they added a little weight to her face. But the bottom line is she has completely ruined her face. All of the photos and the video look bad. Though her face may not be quite as rounded or bulky, her features are way too surgically altered and she should be more upset with her surgeon than the media.

  45. NICKI WINS AGAIN March 9, 2013

    Poor lil Krim…………. Still trying to photo shop that edward scissors hand face!!!!!!!!! Stop trying duck face ASIAN h** becuz ur career been and is already gone!!! Try telling that t***** looking grandma you have been bringing up, don’t come for the Queen and tell her her 2nd best option is to get her a part time job at McDonalds!!!!!!!!! Don’t go AGAINST NICKI IMPOSSIBLE – Nicki Minaj!!!!!!

  46. WTH! March 9, 2013

    I really think Sam’s team be leaving comments…I may be wrong, but I think it may be a possibility. I wouldn’t be surprised considering how s***** this blog is!

    • JanetXone March 9, 2013

      This is what people say when their fave is getting dragged.

  47. BAD BYTCH March 9, 2013

    She shouldve put a side by side picture of her in 1996 and a picture of her now.. Im sure most people will still have the same response

  48. MzDee March 24, 2013

    Chile Tamar can’t even blink her damn eye properly anymore. Lol. Kim use to be so friggin pretty dk why she would do that to herself

  49. marie March 28, 2013

    I soo agree with mzdee.

  50. J Curtis April 2, 2013

    lil kim looks ugly as f*** now….why do people even worry bout her at all??? she just a has been that never will be again. her career is shot, her music is trash, she only had a few songs that really was good…..she was over rated and she made her self worthless with all that surgery…..she can die tomorrow and she wont be missed. it’s lil kim….so who cares??

  51. smooth1 April 19, 2013

    Unfortunately this all started bak in the jr. mafia days when she wuz the only female amongst a group of dudes who constantly dogged her & left her wit a bad/low self image. She felt she needed a more mainstream look which couldve been a good thing if she’d known wen to stop. But we are who we think we are. And kims look now is just a reflection of how she ‘really’ feels about herself. Its too bad actually – always luved kim.

  52. Acappellla June 19, 2013

    Even though I may not agree with her new look, I don’t see why people (especially some media sources) are so outrageously derogatory towards her. ?? Look at most of Hollywood!! They are all sillyconed up o look fake and phony. She is living among her own fellow Barbies and Ken wannabees! Just because she is “Lil Kim” some how has to be held to some higher standard? Look at Donatella Versace, Meg Ryan, Priscilla Presley, Mickey Rourke, LaToya Jackson and on and on. They all needed to stop long ago! But I’m tired of hearing rants about what Lil Kim has done to herself. Give the others their due criticism as well! And society for setting those unrealistic standards of beauty as well!

  53. deltasweetiepi August 27, 2013

    She looks horrible and she used to be the prettiest thing in the female rap game. I do not understand why they want to lighten their skin and disfigure themselves.

  54. Anthony W August 30, 2013

    Lil Kim is the BEST female rapper. No one will ever be better than Kim. NO ONE
