OH NO: Lil Kim SUED for 25 Million


Raptress Lil’ Kim has been hit with a $2.5 million dollar lawsuit, amidst claims she tried to exit her contract with a fledgling entertainment company, before delivering all the recordings the contract requires. Brookland Media, which was launched by famed Hip-Hop producers The Trackmasters (Tone and Poke), filed the lawsuit in Manhattan’s Supreme Court on Tuesday. Lil’ Kim’s lawyer, Londell McMillan, says Brookland sued “to leverage their own position” in the contract dispute. The lawsuit accuses Lil’ Kim of breaching a one-year contractual agreement by demand ing a more lucrative deal. According to the lawsuit, Kim refused to perform unless Brookland agrees to a number of requests, including demand s to have Wyclef and Akon added as producers. In addition to withholding a $200,000 payment to fully free Kim from her contract with Atlantic Records, Brookland won an injunction, temporarily preventing Lil’ Kim from negotiating with other record labels, as reported by AllHipHop.com. Brookland also claims it invested another $250,000 dollars towards the album and Lil’ Kim’s career. Brookland Media is being represented by attorney, Jonathan Davis.
