As we recently reported, it’s being speculated that female rapper Lil Kim may have had more work done to her face. For many years, it’s been made apparent that there has been many transformations made to Kim’s face. Now people feel she may have gotten too much plastic surgery done, and sadly, people are talking more about her face than any of her new music. New pictures have also been circulating the internet showing a very drastic Lil Kim from her Hardcore glory days, and now many have taken to blogs and the social networks to slam Kim for making such drastic changes to a face most of us can agree was gorgeous the way it was before the surgery.

However, Kim’s rep slammed the rumors suggesting Lil Kim has had any more work done and even suggested that the photos were “malicious.” In a statement released, the rep says:

“We would like to inform fans, the media, and the general public that this is nothing more than the blog site doing its best to conjure up much needed publicity and what better way to do so, than to take an American music icon and create a fictitious platform in which to disrespect and humiliate. We at Team Lil Kim are not taking this lying down and are taking this matter very seriously.”


Lil Kim’s camp is claiming that the media has been Photoshopping the rapper’s face for years, causing it to appear like she’s ruined her face.

The other day, the rapper went off on Twitter, suggesting that she’s had enough of the blogs and she’s been a target of Photoshop for way too long. She even claims that she feels people are deliberately trying to ruin her career and vows to no longer allow paps to get a picture of her.

Kim then began to upload pictures of what she deemed was her real face, with side by side comparisons of what she claims are Photoshopped pictures. Here’s one she tweeted:

While some of Lil Kim’s fans are on her side, some aren’t buying her Photoshop story:

What are your thoughts? Are you siding with Lil Kim or do you think she’s reaching? Leave your thoughts in the comment section below.


  1. So did the network Photoshop her when she was on Dancing With the Stars looking like a little Asian woman?

  2. Her logic doesn’t even make any sense. Why would bloggers that the time to Photoshop EVERY single picture the paps take of her?! She’s not even as big of a star as she used to be. Please don’t tell me she doesn’t know how she looks at different angles. Oh Kim…

  3. Paps don’t care about her enough to care that she’s not taking pictures any more. She’s not Nicki Minaj. LOL.

    1. Thank you! Kim isn’t even all that relevant anymore. She’s crazy if she thinks people care enough about her to Photoshop her face. I can’t see a difference in the photos. Just looks like her side profile isn’t that great.

  4. When your own fans think you’re being delusional, then you probably are. Nothing was wrong with her face in the first place, it’s a shame how ugly she’s made herself willingly.

  5. I love Kim but she is acting like one of the most delusional chicks I’ve ever seen. First, it’s clear that she doesn’t even know what her face looks like. She looks terrible in both pictures. Secondly, how in the world does she think she’s that important or “that b-tch” right now when every interview she does they bring up Nicki Minaj? Lastly, she doesn’t even LOOK like a black woman any more. She needs to have several seats.
