Lil' Kim Plans To Track Down 10-Year-Old Prison Pen Pal
LIL' KIM plans to launch a search for a kind-hearted 10-year-old girl who is helping her keep her spirits up in jail when she's released later this year (06). The incarcerated rapper, real name KIMBERLY JONES, admits the girl's letters helped her cope during the darkest days of her prison sentence - and she wants to thank her personally when she's a free woman again. In an exclusive XXL magazine interview from behind bars in Pennsylvania, Kim says, "I got a letter from a 10-year-old girl, and she said, 'Dear Lil' Kim. I am so sad that you are in jail, and I pray for you every night. I started selling lemonade so that I can make money to bail you out of jail.' "I was in tears. It was just the cutest thing, and you could tell it was so sincere. "She sent me a picture of herself... I will remember her for the rest of my life. And when I come out, I'm gon' look for that little girl."
