    Lil Kim has released a statement about the portrayal of her relationship with the Notorious B.I.G. in Notorious. While she isn't considering a lawsuit, she insists, "The film studio and producers involved were more concerned about painting me as a 'character' to create a more interesting storyline instead of a person with talent, self-respect and who was able to achieve her own career success through hard work."

    She continued, "Even though my relationship with Big was at times very difficult and complicated (as with most relationships we have all experienced at one time or another), it was also genuine and built on great admiration and love for each other. Regardless of the many lies in the movie and false portrayal of me to help carry a storyline through, I will still continue to carry his legacy through my hard work and music."

    Voletta Wallace, B.I.G.'s mother, had this to say in response: "This is a a Christopher Wallace movie. It has nothing to do with Lil Kim. If she's disappointed and upset, that is her problem."

    Or as Wayne Barrow, one of the film's producers and Biggie's former manager, put it, "Our job as producers... was to deliver for three individuals. That's his mom and his two children. Everybody else: Stand in line, buy a ticket and enjoy the show."
