It’s the day of freedom for Lil’ Kim
Lil’ Kim celebrated Independence Day one day early with her release Monday morning from a federal detention center in Philadelphia after nearly 10 months behind bars.
The rapper, who was sent to prison for lying about a shootout outside a New York radio station, walked out of the jail looking glamorous in sunglasses and an all-white, cleavage-baring outfit.
Carrying a balloon and a bouquet of white roses, she waved to dozens of cheering onlookers -- some carrying signs that said, “Welcome Home, Queen Bee” -- before getting into a silver Rolls-Royce. The car pulled into a nearby parking lot where she reemerged to greet the throng.
The 4-foot-11 entertainer, whose real name is Kimberly Jones, began serving her time in the detention center Sept. 19. She was sentenced to a year and a day in prison, but was released early for good behavior. She will remain under house arrest for 30 days and be under supervised release for three years.
