Naturi Naughton On Rumored Feud With Lil Kim: “The Shade Is Real” (VIDEO)


(AllHipHop News) Seven years ago Naturi Naughton played Lil Kim in the Biggie biopic Notorious. Kim has been very vocal about her displeasure with the way she was portrayed in the film ever since.

Apparently, Kim even asked that she not be in the same vicinity as Naughton during the VH1 Hip Hop Honors award show after-party.

Naughton appeared on VH1 Live with Marc Lamont Hill, and the star of Power was asked about the rumored issues between her and the Queen Bee.

“The shade is real. I don’t understand it,” said Naughton. “You know what Marc, maybe you can find out why.”

She continued, “All I know is I had the pleasure and honor of playing Lil Kim in the film Notorious. I would love to see some kind of affinity [from her]… I was a first-time actress in a film. This was the beginning of my career. I’m a little black girl from Jersey, why not uplift and support that?”
