Brooklyn femcee icon Lil Kim is unfortunately still struggling through an ongoing financial battle for the possession of her New Jersey home, which was foreclosed upon in 2010 and went up for auction in May.
Kim filed for bankruptcy around the same time, as starting bids for the mansion residence reportedly began at a meager $100. Now, the La Bella Mafia rapper is taking action against its sale, and The Blast reports that she’s going to serious measures to prove to the judge why she’s capable of holding on to the property.
She allegedly made the move to save the home from the public auction and clear up “outstanding tax debt,” The Blast reports. According to the documents, Kim is remaining “committed to saving [her] home and reorganizing [her] debts.”
She requested that her Chapter 13 bankruptcy be updated to a Chapter 11, a conversion that will give her more wiggle room in paying off her debts.
The party reportedly filed a motion to move in on the residence after she failed to pay her June 1 bill of $10,155.47, according to the site. They’re insisting against Kim’s wishes, requesting permission to seize and sell the home in the above-mentioned auction.
Currently, no details have been made public for what direction the courts plan to go in following her new request. With high hopes and even higher prayers, though, we’re rooting for things to work out in Kim’s favor and for the courts to grant her just one last opportunity of recovery before shutting down the residence for good.
