Lil’ Kim was awarded a half-million-dollars yesterday by a judge who found a friend-turned-foe ripped off her name and image for an unauthorized DVD (Chronicles of Jr. M.A.F.I.A.).
Manhattan federal Judge Jed Rakoff found that James Lloyd – a former Junior M.A.F.I.A. rapper alongside Lil’ Kim – and his company, Ground Zero Entertainment, wrongly capitalized on the diva’s fame with a film about the crew.
Lil’ Kim originally had filed a $6 million suit against Lloyd, who had testified against her in a criminal trial that ended with her conviction for lying to a grand jury.
