Lil Kim's pre-prison video crew still unpaid a month later
UPI News Service, 10/18/2005
The crew that worked on Lil' Kim's video right before she checked into federal prison in September has yet to be paid, it was reported Tuesday.
The New York Daily News reported about a month ago many of the checks paid to crew members by director Kirk Fraser bounced.
Fraser, who owns May 3rd Films out of Washington, could next find himself in court, the newspaper reported Tuesday.
"I'm prepared to pursue whatever legal road necessary to solve this problem," producer Heidi Tannenbaum told the Daily News Monday. "This morning I called the whole crew, including the vendors -- probably 50 people altogether -- and only three people have gotten new checks."
A spokesman for Lil' Kim says the responsibility lies with May 3rd Films.
"She has no first-hand knowledge of any debt and has nothing to do with the situation," the spokesman said.
Kimberly Jones is serving a year-and-a-day in federal prison for perjury and conspiracy stemming from a shooting outside a New York radio station.
