Lil Kim's fashion sense has been turning heads for over a decade, and thanks to a car crash she'll be rocking a new accessory for the next seven days or so.
The Queen Bee got in a minor car accident recently, resulting in whiplash. She's been outfitted with a neck brace, and tweeted the news to more than 800,000 followers yesterday (June 9). "Hi My Luvs. I'm ok minor car accident that left me w/ whip Lash now I'm stuck wearing this stupid brace 4 a week and a half but I'll be fine," Kim wrote.
She also shouted out well wishers, and posted a Vine video showing off her restricted movements in the brace.
Kim's last performed at Hot 97's Summer Jam, where she and rival Nicki Minaj both hit the stage (separately). The Brooklyn native's nearly unrecognizable appearance sparked rumors of more plastic surgery. These days Kim boasts a much lighter complexion, a nose job, breast enhancements and other procedures.
While it doesn't look like she's stopped going under the knife, her beef with Minaj is another story. The 38-year-old is known to go back and forth with Minaj and released a Black Friday mixtape dissing the YMCMB rapper, but it appears that she's finally over it. "I don't have beef with anybody — let me just say that," Kim said in May. "Life is too short. Nothing is ever that serious."
Minaj attempted her own peace offering, naming Kim as one of the female rappers she admires.
