LIL' KIM has staged an impromptu meeting with fans to make up for her controversial no-show at a London music festival.
The hip-hop star's slot at the LoveBox event on Sunday (21Jul13) was called off 10 minutes after she was due on stage, and festival organisers blamed Lil' Kim for failing to stick to the schedule, saying in a statement, "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."
However, Lil' Kim's publicist, Lizzie Grubman, insisted her client was not late for the show, claiming the star was "on-site and on time for her performance".
The rapper has now addressed the controversy on Twitter.com and she even arranged to meet disappointed fans at her London hotel.
In a message posted on the website, she writes, "(It) was a very long day. There were things that happened that were out of my control. I love my U.K. fans. I want to do a big meet n greet (sic)... Meet me at my hotel lobby."
Lil' Kim subsequently published a picture of her meeting with fans, alongside the caption, "Meet and greet in London. I love u (sic) guys!!! I love London. I'll be back soon!!!"
