Despite being featured on reality television shows and releasing an album in 2005, Kim has still faced finanical troubles.

Last year, the repo man seized her Bentley after missing four payments. Kim did not dispute the tax debts. "Lil' Kim is paying her tax debt and will continue to do so," spokeswoman Lisa Perkins said. She did not explain, despite repeated requests, what led to the tax liens being filed. (TMZ)

Kim was sued last summer over advance money for books that never developed.

Foxy Brown and Lil' Kim were both paid advances by Simon & Schuster, Inc. for books expected to have already hit shelves. Foxy was allegedly given $75,000 in 2005 for an exclusive autobiography titled Broken Silence that was scheduled for completion by February 2006. Kim was handed $40,000 in 2003 for a novel due by June 2004. (SOHH)
