The questions regarding who fathered Lil’ Kim’s surprise bundle of joy may soon come to an end.
New York rapper Mr. Papers has seemingly revealed himself as the father of the Queen Bee’s child, going as far as retweeting people congratulating him on the big news. A few hours after Lil’ Kim debuted her baby bump on Thursday night at The Blonds NYFW runway show, Mr. Papers even posted a photo on Instagram with the following caption:
"I heard everybody looking for me ?????????????????"
E! News reports the pair was first rumored to be an item back in June 2012. Later that same year Lil’ Kim tweeted that she and the rapper had broken up. In the post she said the breakup was mutual and also thanked her fans for their encouragement and support.
But in 2013, their romance appeared to be heating up again. He featured her in his remix of Rihanna’s “Pour It Up.” The pair even made an appearance in his video for the track.
And though he hasn’t yet officially confirmed he is the child’s father, Mr. Papers continues to reply to congratulatory messages being sent his way on social media.
He also retweeted a post from the blog Bossip that named him as the father of Lil’ Kim’s child -- pretty strong proof that the littlest bee’s father has indeed made his presence known.
