Lil Kim behind bars yet in good spirits
Posted on September 30, 2005 by Jamie Slaughter
A day after releasing her critically acclaimed album, The Naked Truth, Lil Kim and her attorney issued several statements to the press.
"I want all my friends, family and fans to know that I am in good spirits and I will be fine," Lil Kim stated.
Kim also mentioned other inmates around her and what she was doing to stay focused.
"Contrary to the rumors, I am in general population at FDC and I have adjusted to the facility and to my fellow inmates who are all cool people. Each day, I read, sharpen my focus and grow. Of course, I wish I could be out to celebrate the release of my new album this week, The Naked Truth but instead, I am looking to take advantage of this time to work on my personal development. Thank you to all for your continued support."
Her attorney, L. Londell McMillan has visited twice since she began serving her 366 day sentence on September 19. He remained amazed at her fasion sense even when behind bars.
"I was amazed at just how good Kim looked on my two visits to see her in prison last week," McMillan says in his statement. "Even in a jumpsuit, Kim still has the style and swagger of a star. Kim respects her inmates and they respect her. She will turn this experience into a positive reality for herself as well as her fans and community. She is evolving into a remarkable person of faith and courage."
Incidently, Lil Kim also faces a $50,000 fine and three years probation.
