Book publisher Simon & Schuster filed suit last week against Lil Kim and Foxy Brown seeking to recoup a combined $115,000 in book advances it paid to the troubled rappers.
The lawsuit contends that Simon & Schuster, in two separate deals, doled out $40,000 to Kimberly Denise Jones, a.k.a. Lil Kim, in 2003 for a novel that was due June 2004. And in 2005 advanced $75,000 to Inga Marchand, a.k.a. Foxy Brown, for an autobiography called “Broken Silence” which was due for delivery by February 2006. Simon & Schuster never received a book or rough draft from either woman.
