Lil' Kim Blasts 'Notorious'
Lil' Kim is blasting the new movie "Notorious," about the life of her former mentor The Notorious Big.
She admits to Hip Hop Weekly that she hasn't seen the film, which opens Friday, but that doesn't stop her from railing against Naturi Naughton, who plays Lil' Kim in the movie, Biggie's wife Faith Evans, and Biggie's mother, Violetta Wallace.
She takes Naughton to task for not reaching out to her and in a true "ouch" moment, Hip Hop Weekly says Lil' Kim considered Naughton's audition the worst of the reels she saw.
However, Naughton told me when I interviewed her for New Jersey Monthly in November that she tried to talk to Lil' Kim. "I wanted to meet her. I did try to meet her. I reached out to meet her," Naughton stresssed. "I just, unfortunately, didn't get a response from her people."
Lil Kim, the ball is back in your court.
Editor's Note: One of the screenwriters of 'Notorious,' Reggie Rock Bythewood, responded to Lil' Kim's accusations.
"When I was brought onto the project, I requested to speak with Kim," Bythewood told MTV News on Saturday via e-mail. "Once I was granted access, I was blown away by the two-hour phone interview [we had]. She is a complex person. She is a sister with a lot of vulnerability and a lot of strength. Much of what she told me went directly into my next draft. Unfortunately, she was slipped a draft that was written before our conversation. She was angry at the producers and I did not get to speak with her again."
