Lil Kim Sued

Diva Antics Cost My Biz

$15 MILLION!

5/5/2013 6:52 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0504-lil-kim-tmzLil Kim's been slapped with a not-so-lil lawsuit by her former biz manager ... who claims her money-grubbing, diva-like behavior cost him MILLIONS in botched endorsement deals.

Andrew Ro says his company, International Rock Star Corp, inked a licensing deal with Kim back in August 2012 and planned to roll out a slew of products, including a perfume line, clothing line, vodka drink, energy drink, Steve Madden shoe line and even a honey maker.

Problem is Ro says Kim was a menace to work with and often refused to come to project meetings unless she was being paid extra for her time -- making it difficult to get anything off the ground.

Not only that, he says when a project was finally executed -- like her perfume -- Kim refused to promote the product and then stopped taking their phone calls.

After Kim cut contact, Ro says she fired off a cease and desist letter regarding future projects too ... and then filed a lawsuit claiming IRS tricked her into a bad licensing deal.

Ro fired back with his own suit, claiming Lil Kim's to blame and her antics cost his company $15 million.

A judge has yet to rule.

There was no point in her going to the perfume meetings because there would be no way for her to smell anything through the nose Michael Jackson left her in his will.

The only buisness she needs to be doing is PSA's warning children about faulty plastic surgery.
