Lil’ Kim contended the DVD, The Chronicles of Junior M.A.F.I.A. made false advertisements and endorsements by using her name. She was also able to halt production on the sequel, The Chronicles of Junior M.A.F.I.A: Reloaded. Manhattan federal Judge Jed Rakoff found that Lil Cease and his company wrongly capitalized on the Queen Bee’s fame.

    Originally the lawsuit was filed for $6 million. Lil’ Cease had testified against Lil’ Kim in a perjury trial that landed her in prison for one month and a day back in 2005. Since her release, the rapper’s finances have been in disarray. In April, Lil’ Kim’s Bentley, valued at over $250,000, was repossessed because she reportedly fell four to five months behind in payments.
