Violetta Wallace Wants To Talk To Lil' Kim


I'm sure you've heard about the bad blood between Lil' Kim and the mother of the late,Notorious B.I.G., Violetta Wallace. In past interviews , Ms. Wallace has displayed an apparent distaste for the raunchy rapper. Now that Kim has shown disapproval of the way she was characterized in,"Notorious" , Violetta wants to have a sit down with the Queen Bee about the relationship she had with her son.

ESSENCE.COM: (Laughs.) Definitely. Is there something you discovered about your son and his legacy while watching the film?
WALLACE: (Laughs.) I gained strength from it. There were things about him that I never knew that I wanted to see for myself on film. I saw a side of my son that I heard of but I haven't accepted. I'm angered by certain things, disappointed and shocked. So this film taught me tolerance and to be less critical. I would love to speak to Lil' Kim, because I need to ask more about this love relationship because I really didn't like the way he treated her and I'm praying that that's not it. Only she can answer those questions. She's a sweet girl and I didn't think she deserved to be treated the way he treated her, if that's the case.

Personally, I feel this conversation should have taken place before "Notorious" went into production. Now that Violetta has awoken the "Sleeping Giant", Kim has become the sweet girl?

Let's see if Kim takes her up on the offer.
