Rapper LIL' KIM celebrated America's Independence Day yesterday (04JUL06) with her family after being released from jail on Monday (03JUL06). The Lady Marmalade hitmaker, 31, had been incarcerated in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, since 19 September (05) after she was convicted of lying to a federal grand jury over a 2001 shooting outside a New York radio station. Lil' Kim - real name KIMBERLY JONES - will remain under house arrest for 30 days in Alpine, New Jersey, after being released more than two months early thanks to her good behaviour. The HOW MANY LICKS rapper spent much of the day enjoying mother-daughter time with her mother RUBY JONES, the New York Daily News reports. Ruby says, "She's happy to be home."
