Naturi Naughton has had starring roles in several films and TV shows and is currently killing it as Tasha on Starz hit show Power, but she can’t seem to escape the shade looming from her 2009 portrayal of Lil Kim in Notorious. Rumors continue to circulate that the rapper continuously expressed her disdain from the blooming star.
Naughton was a guest on Marc Lamont Hills new talk show VH1 Live and she said “All I know is I had the pleasure and honor of playing Lil Kim in the film Notorious,” she said. “My thing is, I was a first-time actress in a film, this was the beginning of my career. I was a little black girl from Jersey, why not uplift and support that? I’ve always appreciated and loved her work and wish her nothing but the best… I don’t have any beef.”
