This is NOT a good start the the new year!
Lil' Kim was accused of snatching Canadian artist Samantha Ravndahl's work for the single Dead Gal Walking back in November, but instead of settling with a fat check the ladies will duke it out in the courtroom!
Samantha has reportedly filed for at least $150,000 after Lil' Kim pulled the artist's image from Reddit to promote her album on Instagram..
…but the alleged stealing didn't stop there! When Lil' Kim was called out by followers on Instagram (below), she still redesigned a VERY similar image for the official art.
Oops! We bet Lil' Kim wishes she worked out a financial settlement now — even if she claimed to be unaware of the incident when Samantha first complained.
The rapper told XXL:
“I don’t know what the heck is going on. If there were something going on, my team would know better than I would. You have to get that from my team because I really don’t know what’s going on.”
Not sure how gurlfriend can deny something that was blasted (and deleted) on her very own Insta-feed, but we'll let the judge and jury decide!
Something tells us Lil' Kim better get her checkbook ready though!
Ch-ch-check out the undeniable evidence (below)!!!
