Lil Kim May Be Facing $150K Lawsuit Over Single Artwork
Back in November, Lil Kim was accused of jocking the skeletal artwork for her single “Dead Gal Walking” by Canadian artist Samantha Ravndahl. According to TMZ, the artist says that the Queen Bee swiped her design from Reddit. Since a financial settlement was never reached, Ravndahl is now taking the battle to court, suing for at least $150,000. Kimberly had given recognition to the perceived artist on her timeline last year after redesigning the image (below). “Thank U to @DustyAceti a huge fan and talented graphic designer! Muuaahh!,” the Lil’ one tweeted.

Then in an interview with XXL, the Brooklyn native said she had no clue about the controversy. “I don’t know what the heck is going on,” she said. “If there were something going on, my team would know better than I would. You have to get that from my team because I really don’t know what’s going on.”
