Lil Kim Loses 250k Worth Of Jewelry

While waiting for a flight at JFK International

Airport in New York City, Lil' Kim claims someone stole her carry on bag, which

was filled with over $250,000 worth of jewelry.

The Queen Bee was on her way to Los Angeles for

the BET awards when confusion set in at the check-in counter and her Louis Vuitton

bag was mistakenly placed with the rest of her luggage.

"She realized the mistake and the flight

was delayed while the bag was retrieved from the baggage hold. Although some

of the jewelry was still in it, others were gone and the bag looked "tampered

with," her attorney Mel Sachs told The Daily News.

A spokesmen for the airport said the rapper has

filed a police report for lost jewelry and the incident is under investigation

by the Port Authority police.

The Notorious K.I.M. is nominated for best female

artist at the BET awards, which will air Tuesday (June 24). Her latest single,

"Magic Stick" featuring 50 Cent is currently number 5 on the Billboard

Hot 100.
