(Getty Images)Lil Kim is tired for making headlines for her face and not her music, apparently.
On Thursday, MediaTakeOut posted some unflattering photos of the ex-Dancing with the Stars contestant, pointing out what countless others have already observed: Kim's face is looking mighty different these days.
Within a few hours, the rapper's rep issued a lengthy statement on MTO's report, which has since been amended with the friendly headline, "Rapper Lil Kim Shows Off Her New Look . . . She Put On Some WEIGHT . . . And It Looks GOOD ON HER!!!" Choice quotes include:
• "… [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.
• "For reasons unknown, media takeout has ALWAYS proven to be a thorn in the side of such a beautiful rose and continues; what seems to be a vendetta against Lil Kim."
• "We at Team Lil Kim are not taking this lying down and are taking this matter very seriously."
The rep also attached some photos of Lil Kim looking "soft." As of yet, there's no word on what action Team Kim plans to take against MTO.
