Lil Kim Hit With $186K Judgement Over Unpaid Legal Bills
According to theJasmineBRAND.com, Lil Kim has been hit with a $186K judgement by a federal court judge — after not responding to a legal battle accusing her of not paying her lawyers for years. The rapper was hit with a federal lawsuit by the trustee in charge of the law firm, Dewey & Leboeuf, bankruptcy case.
Lil Kim was represented by attorney L. Londell McMillan over the years, most notably during her criminal case case where he defended her on charges of perjury. The two were so close that he accompanied her to check in to prison to start her 1-year sentence in the case.
The court docs filed recently, accuse Kim of being a client of the firm from 2007-2012. The trustee says that the firm provided Kim with legal services but in late 2007 — she stopped paying the invoices they sent.
The trustee explains that docs note that the last payment she made to the firm was in 2007 for $12K — but since then her legal bill increased to $186,217.93. The docs note that despite repeated attempts to get the rapper to pay, she has not made any payments.
The trustee filed suit against Lil Kim for breach of contract and demanded the $186K+ interest be paid back, to start paying off the law firms creditors.
Kim was served with the lawsuit on August 4th in NY, but never responded in court.
Then on October 28th, the federal court judge hit Lil Kim with a default judgement in the amount of $186,217.93, ordering her to pay the unpaid legal bills. See the exclusive docs. [theJasmineBRAND.com reached out to Lil Kim's reps for comment...thus far, no response.]
