Lil’ Kim ‘in good spirits’

Jailed rapper tells fans she's doing just fine

Lil’ Kim has released a statement from her prison cell assuring fans that she is in ‘good spirits’.

The rapper, who releases a new album ‘The Naked Truth’ this week, recently began a 366 day jail term for perjury and conspiracy at the Philadelphia Detention Center.

She also quashed rumours that she is not in ‘general population’ with the rest of the prisoners, according to SOHH’s Daily Hip Hop News.

The statement reads: “I want all my friends, family and fans to know that I am in good spirits and I will be fine. Contrary to rumours, I am in general population at PDC and I have adjusted to the facility and to my fellow inmates who are all cool people. Each day, I read, sharpen my focus and grow.

“Of course, I wish I could be out to celebrate the release of my new album this week, ‘The Naked Truth’, but instead I am looking to take advantage of this time to work on my personal development. Thank you all for your continued support.”

Kim’s entertainment lawyer L Londell McMillan released an additional statement: “I was amazed ay just how good Kim looked on my two visits to see her in prison last week. Even in a jumpsuit, Kim still has the style and swagger of a star.

“Kim respects her inmates and they respect her. She will turn this experience into a positive reality for herself as well as her fans and community. She is evolving into a remarkable person of faith and courage.”
