For the most part, I have pretty good feelings about Diddy. Of course, the Diddy/Kim Porter drama often has me saying WTF? However, if the latest round of blind items/rumors are true (Diddy & Jamie Foxx with the VIP “brown-paper bag test” in Vegas or Diddy beating Cassie’s ass and making up for it with a shopping spree) are true, my opinion of him will be in the gutter. (Yeah, I’m sure that he will be crushed.)
But anyhoo, I see that Diddy has come to Lil Kim’s defense (via A.J. Supreme). ‘Bout time! Since the build-up to the release of Notorious, Lil Kim has been vocal about her displeasure of her potrayal in the movie. Although, I haven’t seen the movie, the word around town is that she was shown as nothing more than a good artist and one of Biggie’s jump-offs (as I type that word, I realize how much I hate it). And the “internets” have gone wild with Faith v. Kim aka “Wife v. The Other Woman” chatter.
Being a big fan of that Bad Boy era, I was surprised to hear that she had be downplayed to that extent. I remember how important the Biggie/Lil Kim relationship was to their success, the continued rise of Bad Boy, and Diddy and Lil Kim seemed to be really close. And of course, the Biggie/Faith/TuPac drama fueled interest in all things hip-hop. Seems like no one wants to admit it, but Biggie was wrong for fooling around on his wife, period. Then Lil Kim was featured in VH1′s Driven (ok, VH1 are you going to release it?). Kim & Big’s relationship may have been alot deeper than we thought.
Although Diddy initially seemed to disregard Lil Kim’s sentiments, he now has her back. He has blogged via youtube that the movie did not portray the real Kimberly Jones, she is much more than that, and she has a right to feel the way she does. He also says that “don’t believe everything in the movie [about her].” Diddy in his own words:
