Following reports from celebrity gossip site Media Takeout that Lil Kim’s face appeared distorted after her appearance on Wednesday’s episode of RapFix Live, a publicist for Lil Kim has responded to the harsh allegations made about her client.

In a statement released this week, Lil Kim’s publicist, C.J. Carter, referred to Media Takeout’s story as “fictitious, malicious, and despicable.”

“As of yesterday a story surfaced on the ever so popular, but NEVER credible blog site Media Takeout, the story implied that Grammy Award Winning HipHopstress Lil Kim was physically distorted and even went so far as to graphically edit photos to add some type of validity to their story, that can only be described as fictitious, malicious, and despicable,” Carter explained in her statement.

The rapstress’ publicist went on to explain that Lil Kim and her team are taking Media Takeout’s story very seriously, although at this time it is unclear if any further actions will be taken.

“We would like to inform fans, the media, and the general public that this is nothing more than the blog site doing its best to conjure up much needed publicity and what better way to do so, than to take an American music icon and create a fictitious platform in which to disrespect and humiliate,” Carter added. “We at Team Lil Kim are not taking this lying down and are taking this matter very seriously. The photos below are from the MTV appearance and clearly depict a beautiful and soft Lil Kim that furthermore proves that anyone with access to a server and an audience can create filth and present it to the masses as credible editorial content.”
