Lil' Kim has issued an apology through her publicist, Lizzie Grubman, after her performance at the LoveBox festival in London was scrapped last minute
Lil' Kim has apologised after her LoveBox appearance was cancelled last weekend.
The 39-year-old rapper - real name Kimberly Jones - has said sorry to her fans after her performance at the London festival - her first live UK gig of 2013 - was scrapped last minute after she allegedly failed to turn up on time.
Her publicist, Lizzie Grubman slammed the accusations on Twitter, writing: "NEWS ALERT: Due to circumstances that were out of Kim's control, her performance at #LoveBox was cancelled. Kim was on-site and on time for her performance and apologizes to all of her fans for the inconvenience. (sic)"
An organiser issued a statement earlier this week suggesting that the show had to go on without the star because they didn't want to disrupt the flow of the festival.
The spokesman said: "Lil' Kim did not turn up to her set on time. The festival had no other option but to maintain the scheduled running order to ensure the other main stage acts were not disrupted."
The brunette beauty organised a spontaneous meet-and-greet at her hotel in Liverpool Street, London, yesterday (22.07.13) to make it up to fans who had missed out on seeing her.
