Lil Kim is flying high. So high, in fact that she recently turned down an offer of £255,000 to appear on the British version of Celebrity Big Brother.
Not only did Kim turn down the offer, she reportedly laughed at it as well. According to The Sun newspaper, show producers countered with a £400,000 offering, which she is said to be considering.
In addition to the money, Kim also demanded “a personal assistant in the house with her, her own hair and make-up stylist on stand-by, first class round-trip travel for two from the US and first-class hotel, and an all-expenses-paid vacation for two in London following the show,” according to EUR Web.
The requests don’t stop there. Episodes of Big Brother are traditionally aired days after being shot and the “evictions” of cast members are shown live on-air. In spite of this, Kim has also requested that she get final approval of all show footage of her before it hits the small screen.
"She may be small but she has a larger-than-life personality," a show insider tells The Sun.
The final line up of Celebrity Big Brother will be kept secret until its Wednesday premiere in Britain on Channel 4.
