Lil' Kim has gone public with her new man on social media after showing off the thoughtful diamond jewelry he gave her as a surprise.
It's been a rough couple of days for Kim (real name Kimberly Denise Jones) who recently lost her father. Thanks to her new man, however, the Queen Bee has a reason to smile again.
Kim took to Instagram a few days ago with a video of her man surprising her with the diamond jewelry. In the clip, someone behind the camera directed Kim to a box on her nightstand.
Mr. Papers filed a suit for visitation in 2015, but Kim only fired back with a lawsuit of her own, claiming he physically assaulted her.
Upon seeing the content, Kim screamed in excitement and got emotional before jumping on the bed towards her "baby." "Thank you, baby @thegreat_leader; it’s beautiful," she gushed in the caption.
In a subsequent post, Kim, 45, offered a closer look at the source of her excitement. It was a diamond-studded necklace with a pendant bearing the image of her late father, Linwood Jones.
Alongside the video, Kim penned a tribute to her dad and words of appreciation for her new man. "I love you, Daddy. I’ll forever wear you on my heart. Rest in heaven," she said. "@thegreat_leader, you’re the best."
Kim announced via a heartbreaking Instagram post last Thursday that her father had passed on. The "Crush on You" hitmaker revealed that she still had to perform after getting the sad news and thanked fellow rapper Trina for comforting her.
"On this very day, I found out my Daddy passed away. I was so distraught and had to put on a brave face and keep working because I had a show that same night. When @trinarockstarr came into my dressing room we instantly bonded. She comforted me and it was exactly what I needed in that moment."
"It’s as if her Mom and my Dad brought us together and healed our friendship," Kim concluded. "We both have angels watching over us."
Kim was no doubt shaken and saddened by her father's death, and for her new man to make something that helps her remember him is truly admirable.
Although this will be the first time Kim tags her beau in a post, the two seem to have been around each other for longer than we knew.
According to his Instagram bio, the rapper’s boyfriend is the CEO of record label Never Eat Alone Entertainment and has posted pictures with Kim as far back as October 26.
This will be Kim’s first public relationship since her contentious split from her baby daddy Mr. Papers.
The rapper and Mr. Papers, an aspiring rapper, welcomed their daughter, Royal Reign, in June 2014. Shortly after, the estranged couple called it quits amid rumors of domestic violence and court proceedings, MadameNoire noted.
According to Heavy, Mr. Papers filed a suit for visitation in 2015, but Kim only fired back with a lawsuit of her own, claiming he physically assaulted her.
Mr. Papers' publicist reportedly denied Kim’s accusation, and the estranged couple later reconciled over social media.
