Lil Kim May Be Facing Lawsuit For Allegedly Stealing Selfie Pic

(AllHipHop News) There have been a string of  copyright lawsuits filed against entertainers the last few months. Ludacris, Robin Thicke, Nicki Minaj, and others have been accused of stealing the work of unrecognized artistic creators, but the latest potential intellectual property case involving a music artist actually has nothing to do with music.

TMZ reports that Lil Kim is being pursued by professional make-up artist Samantha Ravndahl for using her self-portrait on the rapper’s official social media sites and cover art. Ravndahl claims she posted the photo on Reddit under the user name Sssamanthaa, and Kim started using it without her permission.

The creepy pic of a zombie-like women appeared on the Soundcloud cover for Kim’s latest single “Dead Gal Walking.” Kim even added a copyright watermark to the pic when she uploaded it to her Instagram page.lil kim instagram

Ravndahl apparently reached out to the Brooklyn native’s representatives for compensation, but after initially being rejected she was later told Kim “works slowly.” She says Kim continued to use the picture even after contacting her.

Ravndahl has not officially filed a case against Kim yet, but she is looking for some type financial payment. A suit is still a possibility. She has been seeking recommendations in Reddit’s legal advice section.

  • Why not just tell her to stop using it, this person just wants a check.

    • ItGoesDownINtheDM

      truuuuuuuuu but @ the sametime if this lady was bootleging kims latest album on the street or over the net kim would want compensation too ……………………..

      • Lil Kim ain’t making millions like she used to….Thats the the whole point Kim is broke and is trying hard to stay afloat thats why she is copying and pasteing….lol

      • ZUBU

        Not cerrtain if Kim making mills or not but as long as she got that lil’ twat well lubed, and she can still deeeeeeep throat a sprite can she should never be broke. Too many Scott Storch tricks out here for her to go broke. IJS A woman should never be broke

      • 7:1 women to men ratio…..It’s the dudes that should never be broke.

      • ZUBU

        Bro I concur totally, its just a lot of brothas didn’t get the memo. So they are convinced that in order to secure a woman or get a bit of that stank-stank they got to come out of pocket. I believe we may be somewhat age time-period cohorts, and I’m sure you recall when there were some real pimps back in the day whipping the corners in the big caddys, duece & a quarters, El-Dogs, etc. with the gangsta lean. Them ole’ school pimps. I don’t claim to have pimped or nothing I was too young, but I sucked up a lot of game as they say. I got enough game to know what you saying is true!

      • I never had an El Dog, but I had a Caddy Coupe & I’ll say this, when me & the wife were separated, I’d tell these Heaux str8 off the muscle, a Telly = $50 Min, don’t come over empty handed.

        Bring something to drink on, something to smoke on, along with something to poke on!

        I was like the black dude in Total Recall ( *with Arnold )
        “I got 5 kids!”

        In the back of my mind was that Scarface line:
        “It ain’t like a ninja ain’t rich, but a B’ish has to pay for this d*k!”

        Except I wasn’t rich!

      • ZUBU

        LMAO, a few years ago when me and my girl broke I had chicks doing just what you stated, get the telly, bring something to drink on, etc. like they say good d*ck ain’t free lol.
        I had a old school partna when I was a young brotha who would pull a wad (snotty knot) out on a chick and tell her “baby add something to my bankroll baby to give me good luck for the day” clowning, they would add to the BR too

      • Ya’ heard!

        My sales pitch was “It’s cheaper than the telly!”

      • Schooly B

        If if was a fifth then we’d all be drunk… Keep it real homie, ain’t nobody buying no Lil Kim albums.

    • 7yoyo7

      Who wouldn’t???

    • needs to get paid for her work….. imagine if someone took a lil kim song (don’t know why) and used it as theirs. Kim would sue…..

    • RBG4Life

      Trying to copyright the pic as hers was wrong, but all that other sh*t is extreme. A lot of people use and recycle pics on the net. What if the owners of the avatars many of us rock wanted compensation because we were using their pics? I dont think its that serious. Just take it down if its a problem or just give the chic her credit for what she created.

  • Peter Morris

    I like how Kim even put her own copyright logo on it after she snatched it. Lol gangsta.

    • ItGoesDownINtheDM


    • Yeah, but the court system will eat her alive because of that very reason.

      • Peter Morris

        Yeah.. just cut the girl a check and keep it moving.

  • Reblogged this on HUEY mix wit RILEY.

  • Wavpin

    nothing gangsta here

  • Pay da woman….

    gee its too bad no one knows how to file a damm lawsuit.. thats why you are are suckers.

  • Jah Jah

    this advice she is receiving from Reditt is not legal advice– its stupid shit -they wont do a thing unless its COURT ORDERED . She needs to file a copyright registration – and include the date of fixation – that will only cost $35.00 then she can file a lawsuit – but guaranteed she is too lazy to figure it out and will depend on a copyright firm who wont take it.

    Yall remember when Kim actually looked good?
