Lil Kim isn't happy about how she's portrayed in the new biopic about the late rapper, Notorious B.I.G.'s life, Notorious.

The film studio and producers involved were more concern about painting me as a 'character' to create a more interesting story line instead of a person with talent, self-respect and who was able to achieve her own career success through hard work, Lil Kim says in a statement.

Notorious B.I.G. was Lil Kim mentor and dated her, but in the movie, their relationship is depicted in a way that Lil Kim doesn't believe is accurate.

The movie Notorious is scheduled to hit theaters this Friday.
