Lil' Kim sued for being a diva?
Get outta town!
The rapper has been slapped with a lawsuit by her former business manager, Andrew Ro, who claims his company, International Rock Star Corp, lost around $15 million after she backed out on a plethora of endorsement deals that included a clothing line, a shoe collection with Steve Madden, a fragrance, and a honey maker.
Yes, you read that right.
Not only does Ro allege that Kim didn't do her part to get the deal off the ground, but apparently she was so difficult to work with, she made it impossible to do any promotion or get anything done.
What's worse is Kim eventually cut off all contact with Andrew and fired off a cease and desist letter regarding future deals before hitting him and International Rock Star Corp with a lawsuit of her own, which accuses them of tricking her into a bad licensing deal.
His response, of course, is this $15 million lawsuit.
Now let's be real, is a botched deal with Kim that big of a surprise?
We're not sure how successful a line of products with Kim's face would be anyway, except for maybe the honey maker. She is/was the Queen Bee, after all!
