Lil' Kim and Foxy Brown Sued By Book Publisher

Originally posted 07/25/2008 01:45PM

Foxy Brown and Lil' Kim may be out of prison – but they're not out of trouble.

Publishers Simon & Schuster Inc. filed two lawsuits Thursday that claim the rappers were paid advances for books they have yet to turn in, the Associated Press reports.

Prior to being jailed in 2005 for lying about a shooting, Brown, 29, allegedly received $75,000 to write an autobiography called Broken Silence, due the following year.

Kim, 32, who was released in 2006 after serving nearly 10 months for a probation violation, was given $40,000 to write a novel close to five years ago, according to the publishing house.

"We are disappointed that Simon & Schuster has made the decision to file this lawsuit,” says Kim's lawyer Bernard H. Jackson III. "[She] has had every intention to fulfill her obligations under the agreement from day one but there were certain resources that are standard for any book publisher to provide that we felt were not available in order for her to complete the project. Many attempts have been made to resolve this matter privately by Kim and she still looks forward to doing so."

Calls to Brown's rep were not immediately returned.
