Harpo, who dis woman?
Is what I imagine ran through the minds of the 1000’s of people in attendance at Hot 97’s Summer Jam this past weekend.
Just a reminder, this is what Lil Kim looked like in 1999.
Minus the nipple pasties and purple hair, Lil Kim was quite pretty.
But no one is sure what’s going on with her face nowadays.
Speculation that the star has gone under the knife first surfaced in March 2012, and has followed her through each of her public appearances. Lil’ Kim’s rep, C.J. Carter, issued a statement in March 2013 denouncing the claims, however.
“We would like to inform fans, the media, and the general public that this is nothing more than a blog site doing its best to conjure up much needed publicity,” Carter said, addressing gossip site MediaTakeout’s claims. “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 very seriously,” he added.
Lil Kim even tweeted back in March that her face has been photoshopped and sabotaged. This came after Wendy Williams poked fun at picture of her.
“Years & years they have been photoshopping pics of me & sabotaging my image,” Lil’ Kim tweeted. “I’m not putting up with that sh-t no more. All they have been proving is im THAT b-tch with or without an album out & they always want to attack & bring down the real ones. Today was the last straw.”
“You saw me on TV, people were posting pics all day…None of them looked the way that fake picture looked,” she continued, referencing an image that Williams brought up on the show.
Personally, it’s your face, do what you want to do with it, but don’t blame people for assuming you’ve had surgery, when you now look like a totally different person.
