Rapper Lil Kim has reportedly been hit with a $15 million lawsuit by her former business manager amid claims that her diva-like behavior cost him a ton of money in lost endorsement deals, according to TMZ.

Andrew Ro, who reportedly handled the petite plastic surgery princess' business deals, allegedly signed a licensing agreement with Kim, whose actual name is Kimberly Jones, in August of last year and planned to roll out a multitude of promotions using Kim's persona from vodka to perfume to clothing to energy drinks to a honey maker and even a Steve Madden show line.

But according to Ro, Kim's troublesome attitude was problematic for business. Kim allegedly refused to attend meetings unless she was paid extra, and when a project reached completion, Ro contends, Kim would forgo its promotion as with her perfume line. He also claims that she wouldn't even take company phone calls.

Last March, when the contract was reportedly breached, Kim fired off a cease and desist letter regarding any future projects.  Kim then filed a $1 million lawsuit, claiming that she was bamboozled by Ro and his partner Sunny Barkats in to signing a series of bad licensing deals.

Ro then hopped on the lawsuit bandwagon and filed one of his own against the controversial performer for a reported $15 million making her the scapegoat for all of his failed deals.
The case is still pending a judge's ruling.
