 Lil’ Kim (full name: Kimberly Denise Jones), known professionally by her stage name Lil’ Kim, is an American rapper, songwriter, record producer, model, and actress. She was born and raised in Brooklyn, New York, living much of her adolescent life on the streets after being expelled from home.

Lil’ Kim Personal Life

In her teens, Jones began dating Shawn Powell. The pair met at the Empire Roller Skating rink in Brooklyn. After a couple of months of seeing each other, Powell was arrested for robbery and was sentenced to eight and a half years in prison. Jones and Powell continued their relationship with Jones visiting frequently and also kept in touch by writing letters to each other. The couple also became engaged while he was incarcerated. During this time was when Jones met Christopher Wallace, and with wanting to focus on starting her rap career the engagement was eventually called off and the couple split. Shortly after meeting Wallace, Jones had an on and off relationship with him up until his death in 1997. On July 23, 1996, Jones was arrested for possession of marijuana after police raided the Teaneck, New Jersey home of Wallace. The arrest came after police smelt marijuana inside the home when they went to ask for someone to move an illegally parked car. Jones denied she was smoking, claiming she was “upstairs all day sleeping”. That same year, during the recording of her debut album, Jones fell pregnant with Wallace’s child. Jones never made it public until 1999 during an interview with The Source. Jones decided not to keep the baby, telling The Source “I already knew the kind of relationship that Biggie and I had, and I knew that [having a child] was something that couldn’t take place…” Wallace called Jones three days before his death and told her he loved her. In 2017, Jones admitted her relationship with Wallace was “very violent” after Jermaine Dupri claimed that he witnessed Wallace pull a pistol out on Jones. She had previously revealed that he was physically abusive and he once choked her until she passed out.

On March 17, 1999, Teaneck police issued an arrest warrant after Jones failed to turn up to court dates stemming from her 1996 arrest. The warrant wasn’t a top priority for police and wasn’t made public until September 2003, after the story was published online by The Smoking Gun. Jones was later removed from Teaneck’s wanted list in October 2003, after $350 in bail was posted on her behalf. Jones’ attorney told reporters that she didn’t appear in court as she believed the case had been resolved.

In 2002, Jones started dating Damion “World” Hardy; the couple split in 2003. It was during this time that Jones had been a victim of physical abuse. Jones also stated how she had to have multiple nose jobs due to being punched. On June 20, 2003, Jones had $250,000 worth of jewelry stolen from her while catching a flight at New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport after a bag, which she intended to carry on, was mixed up with eight other pieces of her luggage. The missing jewelry was recovered 10 days later, found wrapped up in a rag in a locker room for airline employees by a United Airlines worker. On July 1, 2003, John Acheson was charged after trying to extort $25,000 from Jones in exchange for her stolen jewelry. Acheson, who was never in possession of Jones’ jewelry, called Jones’ lawyer, Mel Sachs, on June 23 saying he had the jewelry and would exchange it for an initial $5,000 and $20,000 at a later date. Acheson was charged with third-degree attempted grand larceny, fourth-degree attempted grand larceny by extortion, and attempted coercion in the second degree. In March 2004, Acheson was sentenced to five days in jail and a $500 fine after pleading guilty to a minor charge of attempted grand larceny. In 2004, Jones dated record producer Scott Storch. The two met when Storch offered Jones a ride to her hotel. The couple split after only 2 months together. In 2013, Storch revealed that he would’ve married Jones if the relationship had worked out. In 2007, Jones and Ray J briefly dated. On June 9, 2014, Jones gave birth to a baby girl, named Royal Reign. Jones identifies as a Christian.

Don’t destroy her like (sic) you did yourself,” the critic concluded. There is always that one!

Lil Kim welcomed her daughter in 2014 after announcing her pregnancy the year prior. The father of the rapper’s child was at first a mystery.
