Lil Kim Net Worth: Kimberly Denise Jones, who goes by the stage name Lil Kim, was born in the Bedford-Stuyvesant neighborhood of Brooklyn, New York, on July 11, 1974. She has a brother named Christopher who is older.
Linwood Jones and Ruby Jones split up when Jones was nine years old, and her father took care of her after that. Jones was eventually kicked out of the house because of how hard it was for them to get along. Then she quit high school and moved out onto the streets.
When Jones was a teenager, he met Christopher Wallace, also known as The Notorious B.I.G. The rap legend became an important part of her career, and they also went out together. Jones joined Biggies Brooklyn-based group Junior M.A.F.I.A. in 1994 when he was 19 years old. Jones took on the name Lil Kim around this time.
Conspiracy, the groups first record, came out on August 29, 1995. It got average reviews and did okay in the market. In its first week, it debuted at number eight on the U.S. Billboard 200 chart and sold 69,000 copies. On December 6, 1995, the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) said that it was a gold record. Players Anthem, I Need You Tonight, and Get Money were all big hits for Conspiracy.
Christopher Wallace, also known as the Notorious B.I.G., and Lil Kim dated on and off until his death in 1997. During the time she was making her first album, she got pregnant with Wallaces child, but she decided to end the pregnancy in the end.
She said this in an interview with The Source in 1999: I already knew what kind of relationship Biggie and I had, so I knew that [having a child] wasnt going to happen. In 2017, Lil Kim said that she and Wallace had a very violent relationship.
