Lil’ Kim even shared the photo on her Instagram account after apparently throwing a copyright watermark on top of it. But that addition reportedly didn’t fly with the beauty blogger, who brought her case to Reddit. Samantha wrote that she had spoken with members of Lil’ Kim’s team, and asked them to remove her photos but that they refused to.
“I have spoken with a lady on her team as well as her manager, which has done a whole lot of nothing,” she wrote in a comment. “I’ve reported the photos on Facebook and Instagram multiple times, but they are continually posted. Anyone have any thoughts on what to do here?”
Reddit users swarmed the thread with supportive advice and suggestions. Commenters overwhelmingly encouraged the original poster (OP) to consult attorneys and sue the singer. “Don’t publish anything else about this until you have consulted an attorney.”
Lil Kim recently responded to the controversy with a statement to XXL…
“I don’t know what the heck is going on,” Kim tells XXL. “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.”
