Lil' Kim stands up her gays at Manor Pride event




Wilton Manor gays are all abuzz about a lackluster performance over the weekend by the Queen Bee, Lil' Kim. TMZ reports here that the rapper stiffed the hoppin' night club, the Manor, by failing to appear at a pre-concert meet-and-greet this past Saturday. Even though she was paid a whopping $23,000 to do so. She also managed to show up late for the actual concert, and apparently got booed out of the club following her performance. You can catch some videos of her performance on the Manor's Facebook. Yesterday the Manor posted on their Facebook that all VIP guests had been issued a full refund for their tickets but, "due to upcoming litigation, per our attorneys, we are unable to get into further details about last nights events."

Is this foreshadowing for the upcoming Come Out With Pride performance at the Parliament House? (That's 10 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 11.) According to the Manor's flier, the event was also a birthday party for Lil' Kim's assistant, so we're hoping it was just a case of partying too hard before the show.
