In order to save her luxurious three million dollar mansion, Lil Kim — who is in four-million-dollars worth of debt — filed bankruptcy. She then appeared in court, pleading with a judge to stop the sale of her home.
However, according to recent reports, the star’s home is still at risk of being taken from her. This news comes after she appeared on TRL. Scroll to the end of this article to watch the video.
As of July 13, the judge who will be deciding Kim’s fate hadn’t even signed off on her bankruptcy paperwork. Nevertheless, she attempted to remain hopeful, promising, “I remain committed to saving my home and reorganizing my debts.” According to TMZ, “debts” in this context refers to the two million dollar loan on her New Jersey home, a little over 1.8 million dollars in unpaid taxes and 186,000 dollars in legal fees.
She reportedly offered creditors $5,500 to get her on track, but they didn’t seem interested. The Blast reports that the involved creditors are still gunning for her home.
Just last month, the “Lighters Up” artist was a lot less meek. The star — who attended the launch of Paris Hilton’s fashion collab with Boohoo in June — was the talk of the event, as one of the most interesting things to come from it was probably the two seconds it took Lil Kim to shade Nicki Minaj. When a reporter asked Kim her thoughts on Nicki and Cardi B’s relationship, she quickly responded that though Cardi is her “girl,” she isn’t familiar with the “other one.”
