Tacky? Lil Kim asks fans to buy her baby gifts


On Saturday, a very pregnant Lil Kim held a lavish “royal” themed baby shower at the Broad Street Ballroom in New York City, surrounded by her celebrity friends including Lisa Raye, Juelz Santana, Drita of “Mob Wives” fame, Sandra “Pepa” Denton, her baby’s father, Mr. Papers, and Kimbella Vanderhee of “Love & Hip Hop.”

Before the Queen Bee welcomed her guests, the 39-year-old rapper shot a quick post to Instagram, where she asked her fans to purchase baby gifts off of a somewhat pricey registry.


‘…please make sure they check off your gift from the registry after purchase,’ wrote her assistant, who tweeted the message. ‘Thank u guys so much #teamlilkim.’

While several fans seemed more than happy to fork over the goodies, other’s took offense to Lil Kim’s request.

“Do you really need your fans to buy your baby shower gifts? Tacky,” one user wrote on Instagram.


Among her list of requests, was a $575 Tiffany & Co., sterling silver baby cup (which, according to the registry, has been purchased) and a Snow White bib and booties set, retailing at $9.99, at Buy Buy Baby.
