Lil’ Kim came to Manhattan federal court yesterday wearing no more bling than the black-robed judge.
The rap star who grew up in Brooklyn as Kimberly Jones flashed no rings or door knocker earrings. She wore a tan pinstripe suit, and the only touch of hip hop in her whole getup was an oversized belt with a buckle to match.
Otherwise, Lil’ Kim might have been taking tips on what to wear in the hot seat from Martha Stewart, who was a defendant in this same courthouse not so long ago.
Both women were indicted for perjury, though Stewart only fibbed to a federal agent about a stock maneuver. Lil’ Kim and co-defendant Monique Dopwell are charged with lying under oath to a grand jury regarding a shooting outside the Hot 97 radio studios on Hudson St. in 2001.
If her attorney’s count is correct, Lil’ Kim was asked 2,367 questions before the grand jury. She is charged with being less than candid twice.
Lil’ Kim is said to have misled the grand jurors about how well she knew Suif (Gutta) Jackson. She is also supposed to have indicated that Damion (D-Roc) Butler was not present when the bullets flew.
