Lil Kim is being sued by a former business manager who says that she sucked up all the money but gave almost nothing in return. Andrew Ro is claiming that he was consistently screwed (not in the good way) by Kim. The owner of International Rock Star Corporation had a licensing deal with Kim and said that she was less than gracious as a spokesperson.
Initially, the company planned to push out a perfume line, clothing line, vodka drink, energy drink, Steve Madden shoe line and even a honey maker. But none of that came together and it just got uglier by the second. Read more:
Problem is Ro says Kim was a menace to work with and often refused to come to project meetings unless she was being paid extra for her time — making it difficult to get anything off the ground.
Not only that, he says when a project was finally executed — like her perfume — Kim refused to promote the product and then stopped taking their phone calls.
After Kim cut contact, Ro says she fired off a cease and desist letter regarding future projects too … and then filed a lawsuit claiming IRS tricked her into a bad licensing deal.
Ro fired back with his own suit, claiming Lil Kim’s to blame and her antics cost his company $15 million.
