Lil Kim Cancels London Lovebox Show 30 Minutes After Showtime / Fans Enraged

The downward spiral that has become Lil Kim‘s career sunk to new lows tonight after femcee dramatically axed her own set at London’s Lovebox festival 30 minutes into what should have been her show.

Full story below…

Held at London’s Victoria Park, the three day event (which has become a staple on the British music calendar since launching in 2002) saw Azealia Banks headline yesterday. Yet, for most, much of the anticipation for this year’s show had been built around Kim’s Sunday performance.

Unfortunately, just minutes before her set was scheduled to launch, a report that she had pulled out of the performance spread across the park, soon finding its way to Twitter:


According to reports, the Rapper cancelled her gig after arriving at the venue late with an entourage of allegedly high handlers and refused to perform upon laying eyes on the stage.

Lovebox organisers confirmed the axing of Kim’s set, writing:

The most unfortunate part about this entire mess, is that Kim missed out on the opportunity to showcase her skill to an audience whose perception of her remained untainted..until now.

For, while her lengthy hiatus and ill advised career moves have seen booking US festival dates near impossible, her ‘Lovebox’ gig would have seen her win on all fronts….considering her ever impressive live work and the fact British audiences are far more forgiving, or oblivious to the mess she’s made of herself of late.

It seems, that despite the support her fan base have armed her with, Jones’ heart simply isn’t in it anymore.

A shame, considering this performance would have gone a long way to encourage US organisers hand her the slots she’ll need to promote her long awaited (and elusive) new album.

    • TJ July 21, 2013

      Honestly there isn’t much difference. The main fact is, this was a great opportunity & she blew it by either cancelling or having them cancel her for not bothering to show up on time.

  8. AzaleanArmy July 21, 2013

    Oh no, she must of left her nose at home again.

  25. channel_ROMAN July 21, 2013

    So her crew was too high? That’s what happens when you mess with bum ass bedstuy guys. They took an importunity to get smacced in London. Lol. That’s the winning Team she speaks off. LMAOO! And they talk bad about people that’s under a label. Just when you thought it couldn’t go downhill even further.

  26. Damo July 21, 2013

    I must say i’ve supported Kim forever, but.. This is just a hot mess, my sister paid money for those tickets she is f****** pissed!!! Regardless of what all you haters say, EVERYONE was there to see Kim. However from what I’ve been told im not sure if this is true, but basically apperantelyy the LoveBox main stage was running late, and Kim turning up late ment that they would have been even later, so they offered her a smaller stage when she turned up, and no longer the main stage and Kim said no, mainly because her set was due to be streamed worldwide and the stream was set up for the main stage! It’s all a mess but regardless f whats true this is not good for Kim at ALL!!! i’m sure she is disapointed as she has been tweeting all day with excitement but the only way for her to salvage this is to do a free gig for all the fans who paid for tickets

    • channel_ROMAN July 21, 2013

      Sounds like someone’s Summer Jam….

      • TheTRUTH July 21, 2013

        But The Way That “Someone” Made It Up To Her Fans Tho.

  27. Dev July 21, 2013

    Kim, how to ruin your career on an international level. It was bad enough the shambles of your US situation, but to mess up with fans who would’ve had the rare chance to see you is no good.
    Where else is she going to get an established gig like this?

  28. Damo July 21, 2013

    Update guys, so Lil Kims personal assistant has just tweeted that Kim was not late.. ” Noel Noel ‏@lkl71111 7m
    All I’m gonna is Kim was NOT late!!!! ”

    I’m not making excuses for her but i think there is tuth in this, Kim has just done a club tour in the USA and no matter what some of you guys think of her there were never any rumours of lateness or cancelations.. plus Kim actually went to LoveNox last night as she tweeted that she bumped into Kelis..

    And just saw this tweet from Festivo TV who were going to be doing the Live Stream for Lil Kim, here is what they tweeted before she was ment to go on Festivo ”
    TV ‏@FestivoTV 2h
    UPDATE: just had word that the main stage at Lovebox is running a little behind atm. @LilKim will be delayed, stay tuned for more updates”

    I’m starting to believe the rumours that because of the main stage running late Kim was then asked to perform on a smaller stage and refused

    • channel_ROMAN July 21, 2013

      Someone like that should not be refusing any stages.

    • CoCo July 21, 2013

      Club tour? lmao was that a joke?

  29. Common Sense July 21, 2013

    How sad. Shouldn’t someone in her situation be trying harder than this?

    • DOSSOME July 21, 2013

      That’s EXACTLY my point…

  30. POP ROYALTY [RUDE BOY] July 21, 2013

    She make it hard To Support Her….

    I’m that Close To Believe God hate her.

    • DOSSOME July 21, 2013

      Not God,but her…She doesn’t love herself enough to want to succeed.I think she thinks she’s still in 2002

      • POP ROYALTY [RUDE BOY] July 21, 2013

        She Doesn’t have Dedication or Determination, She don’t want it so bad, not Enough.

  38. ENOUGH ONIKA (KMART QUEEN) July 21, 2013

  39. Honey Boo Boo July 21, 2013

    What the f-ck is wrong with her,she keeps sh-tting on her fans and not making up for it,she lucky she have them loyal fans,that she can sh-t on and they are still there for her…she better becareful because people can get fed up with her f-ckry.

    • -= July 21, 2013

      and she don’t even have the respect to tweet her fans her self,she keep letting others do it,even her boyfriends she lets dis her fans,and she says nothing about it…..i really think she is going crazy she needs to get up off her high horse.

  42. Iconic Iggy July 21, 2013

    Sigh. Kim needs to either step it and get it together or give it up and retire somewhat gracefully. This is just embarrassing.

  43. Beyond Amazing (Cause Bey really is!) July 21, 2013

    Kim, girl why were you late. You need this, it’s not like your hot right now. Stop playing games and get to work.

  44. IM A FREE B*TCH July 21, 2013

    “How To End Your Career” a book written by Lil Kim, now for sale for a cheap price of $9.90 only!

  45. Animated McQueen July 21, 2013

    Ill begin with nicki minaj reaction to the news the azealia banks laugh then rihanna off this mack on rihanna getting served on stage like seriously some queen There Is One True Queen Beyonce Bow Down B******!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  46. Tisha July 22, 2013

    Smh, no matter what the story was that she wasn’t on that stage the reality is like Sam said she doesnt HAVE the ability to just cancel a performance.

    Kim AND her fans: there’s a reason why your girl is struggling and it’s because there’s no thirst or hunger for her anymore. Old fans move on, new fans aren’t created…even if the stage was smaller SHE SHOULD HAVE PERFORMED. Damn let 100 people see you and be impressed and give a damn about your music rather than NO ONE.

    So now no one saw her streaming OR live. The live folks are pissed, the online folks are disappointed/embarassed/confused. That s*** don’t look like money, it looks like welfare stubs.
