(AllHipHop News) Lil Kim might just be getting over the death of former pal/lover/ghostwriter Notorious B.I.G. but she is definitely not over Sunny Bakrats, her former lawyer. Why? The pint-size MC claims Bakrats and her friend, Andrew Ro deceived her out of endorsement deals.
According to reports, the Brooklyn-bred MC, born Kimberly Denise Jones, is suing Bakrats for $1 million on the grounds that the JSBarkats PLLC founder duplicitously promised her “multimillion dollar deals for [Kim’s] brands in the cosmetic and perfume business.”
According to suit, which was filed in Manhattan Supreme Court, Lil Kim claims Bakrats and Ro cheated the singer out of “valuable trademark and branding rights” while somehow usurping 44 percent control of a corporation started to license her brand names.
