Lil’ Kim and Junior M.A.F.I.A.
Without Biggie, there would be no Junior M.A.F.I.A. or the group’s standout superstar Lil’ Kim. The diminutive diva was a childhood friend of Biggie’s and her first album, Hard Core, was created under his direction. Kim has come out publicly and stated that the two did have a romantic affair as well. “I loved him with all my heart,” Kim said in an October ’99 VIBE interview. On a February 2003 episode of VH1’s Driven, Lil’ Kim said she had been pregnant with Biggie’s child before suffering a miscarriage.
