Lil Kim Now Working With Mr. Papers To Resolve Domestic Violence Case Despite Claiming He Abused Her
Lil Kim seems to be backtracking on her claims that her baby’s father battered her.
The “Lady Marmalade” rapper’s lawyer told a Bergen County Family Court judge Wednesday that she and rapper ex Mr. Papers – parents of one year old Royal Reign – were now working to settle the case.
The diminutive diva, real name Kimberly Jones, had earlier asked a judge to issue a permanent restraining order against Mr. Papers, aka Jeremy Neil, after she claimed in court papers that he beat her up. Kim made the allegations shortly after Papers filed for visitation of the tot, who he hasn’t seen in eight months. A permanent restraining order would’ve affected the child custody case.
“We are working towards an amicable solution,” Papers’ lawyer Ronald Bar told BOSSIP.
Papers’ publicist, Tasha Hilton, told BOSSIP that he never laid a hand on Kim, and her domestic violence claims may have been a con to keep him away from the baby. The rappers broke up last year over infidelity claims when Royal Reign was only two months old, and the new dad hasn’t seen his baby since.
Kim showed up five hours late for the hearing, and arrived in full makeup, dressed in a floral print dress, jean jacket, long blond wig with studded stilettos. She, along with Papers and their lawyers, spoke animatedly together for about 45 minutes before they saw the judge.
There seemed to be no love lost between Papers, 27, and Kim, 41, who complained loudly before the hearing began of her disdain for her one time lover.
“I hate him,” Kim told a companion. “I don’t understand why people like him exist.”
Outside court, Kim became hysterical when a reporter asked her about her feelings on the case.
“Don’t do that! I am telling you – don’t do that!” Kim screamed before calling the reporter a “b***h.”
“Are you a mother?” Kim said. “When you’re a mother, you’ll understand!”
The couple are due back in court next month.
