The drama was first sparked late last year when the singer recruited Kim’s arch nemesis Nicki Minaj for her track “I Ain’t Thru.”
On Wednesday, it was like the fire got hotter.
“N while we’re addressing everything, Lil Kim and I r not “friends” I take that term very seriously,” Cole wrote on Twitter. “We made wonderful music. That is it.”
Kim, who was irritated by the singer’s decision to collaborate with Nicki Minaj, after she contributed a verse to Cole’s hit single ‘Let It Go,’ immediately went on the offensive.
“U got that right. We are not friends. The same way U take friendship seriously i take loyalty serious,” Kim wrote, and then continued with a series of messages: “The whole world has seen me extend my hand to u over and over again. Only someone who’s trying to build a sincere relationship does shows 4 free & supports. u did not pay me a dime 4 none of that. That warrants some type of loyalty and respect.”
“Friend or no friend i would have never let anybody disrespect u on my record but i can’t expect everyone to be as real as i am,” Kim continued. “My love & loyalty to u got u a hit, ur friendship with ur friend got u a flop,” she said, referencing the poor performance of “I Ain’t Thru” on the charts.
Giving her last word, Cole responded with, “Kim that was a gr8 look 4 U coming out of jail just as it was a gr8 look for missy to have produced it,” she wrote, “All I’m saying is don’t have everyone thinking I was disloyal as a ‘friends’ cause we were never that and u know it. No disrespect.”
