Lil Kim wasn’t laughing on Friday (April 1) when she got word she wouldn’t be getting a paycheck that had been promised to her. Instead she did what any performer would do, and bailed.
As reported, Lil Kim had to reschedule a concert at the Mid-Hudson Civic Center in Poughkeepsie, New York, pushing it back two weeks, because the promoter couldn’t sell enough tickets. From there, the event was slated for an April 1 performance, but the promoter didn’t listen to advice from the venue to downsize to a different location and as a result came up short.
According to TMZ, the rapper didn’t receive any deposits for the event, so the whole thing was a wash from the jump. Interesting thinking that those behind the event had trouble selling tickets for such a legendary figure in hip hop. Maybe her 10-year hiatus is going to hurt her comeback after all, but we'll have to see.
