They must have made her look like a huge, mooching hobag!
The Biggie Smalls biopic comes out this weekend, and B.I.G. protege/mistress Lil' Kim doesn't like how the film makers made her look.
Kim's people released the following statement on her behalf:
"The film studio and producers involved were more concerned about painting me as a 'character' to create a more interesting story line instead of a person with talent, self-respect and who was able to achieve her own career success through hard work… Even though my relationship with Big was at times very difficult and complicated (as with most relationships we have all experienced at one time or another), it was also genuine and built on great admiration and love for each other. Regardless of the many lies in the movie and false portrayal of me to help carry a story line through, I will still continue to carry his legacy through my hard work and music."
At the flick's NY premiere, the screenwriter said he understands why Lil Kim might not like the film, but added "I think that Naturi (Naughton) did a great job playing Kim. I think people are going to be a lot more sympathetic towards (Lil Kim) after seeing the movie."
Facing the truth about yourself is a hard thing to do sometimes!
