A Message From Beyond the Grave
Tyler Henry, host of Hollywood Medium, told Entertainment Tonight that he received a few special messages from Notorious BIG for his ex-lover Lil Kim during the shooting of his latest episode that will air Wednesday, August 23. In the following clip, you’ll see some of Kim’s reactions to the positive and loving message from beyond the grave.
Lil Kim and Biggie’s history has been subject to many different interpretations since his death, but Tyler Henry seems to think that his work as a medium provided Kim some much needed assurance that his spirit is still with her and is still supportive.
The question on everyone’s mind, however, is what Faith Evans, the late rapper’s wife, would have to say about all this…
Lil Kim and Biggie’s Relationship
Notorious BIG discovered fellow New York rapper Lil Kim in the 1990s and took her under his wing as his protege. Although he was married to singer Faith Evans at the time, a love affair began between the two. After a messy public unraveling, their affair was one of the most contested love triangles in hip hop at the time.
After Biggie’s senseless murder in 1997, a crime that to this day goes unsolved, Faith Evans and Lil Kim seemed to bury their hatchet for a while as they both mourned their mutual loss. It wasn’t until the Evans-backed film Notorious came out in 2008 that it became evident that bad blood still existed between the two women (Lil Kim’s portrayal was that of a ‘homewrecker’ of sorts).
The past is the past
Despite the ongoing feud, Lil Kim has never backed down from claiming that her and Notorious BIG were very much in love, despite him being married to Evans.
So when 21-year-old Tyler Henry sat down with Lil Kim on his show Hollywood Medium, Lil Kim did not seem too surprised that the strongest contact he made was with her former lover. From ET:
“It’s like Biggie came through as, like, a former lover, no different than any former lover would,” he said. “But he came through very strongly and acknowledging that he wanted her to know that they were soulmates and how much he loved her. And he acknowledged their relationship and how it kind of…how their last interaction was. He discussed some of the dynamics behind that and gave her a lot of closure and healing because, she didn’t obviously, because of the nature of his passing.”
His Legacy Lives On
Tyler Henry also explained that Biggie’s presence was still very active in Lil Kim’s art, noting how supportive he was of the new music Lil Kim is currently making that features old tracks recorded by the late rapper.
Whether or not you believe in psychic mediums or the afterlife in general, it’s great for Kim to receive some validation from her former lover. Although her career is not quite what it used to be, the artist has always had a fond memory and close connection with the one she called “Big Poppa.”
Which side are you taking with this? Were the couple actually soulmates or is this a bunch of self-publicizing mumbo jumbo to promote Lil Kim’s latest endeavor? Let us know in the comments and SHARE this with a friend!
