LIL’ Kim and her crew are reportedly at the centre of a newly-launched Los Angeles Police Department investigation.
The rapper’s crew allegedly robbed a woman over a BET Awards party house dispute, according to TMZ.
Lil’ Kim, 43, rented a home so she could throw a soiree but when she visited the property, at 2am Sunday local time, she didn’t find it up to snuff, T MZ reported. She and her team requested a deposit cheque be returned.
After either the homeowner or attendant refused to fork over the cheque, the police were called, according to the report. Authorities said the dispute was a civil issue and that little could be immediately done.
Kim and her team soon left the property, but around 4am a group of people wearing ski masks came to the house with weapons taking the deposit cheque and $US20,000 ($26,000) cash, the site reported.
On their way out, the robbers also slashed the car tyres of the homeowner and swiped a hubcap.
A request for comment from Lil’ Kim’s team wasn’t immediately returned and the LAPD wasn’t able to comment at this time.
