It's been 11 years since the death of her husband, the celebrated rapper Notorious B.I.G., that Faith Evans is coming out with a new autobiography. In her tome, titled "Keep the Faith", she recounts her marriage life with her late husband and more surprising she also talks about the many affairs he had plus all the women she caught sleeping with him.

Opening up about her turbulent marriage to Biggie, the hit maker confesses in her book that she once caught Lil' Kim in bed with him. "I got to Big's bedroom door, turned the knob, and went inside. As soon as I saw a small lump next to Big's large frame, I flew into a rage, ran over to the side of the bed, and pulled back the covers. I grabbed some chick out of the bed and started beating her a--. At some point, the chick's wig came off in my hand: It was a short, cropped wig. I stopped throwing punches for a minute to get a good look at the chick I was beating up. It was Lil' Kim. She was completely butt-naked, yelling as I pushed her around the room," so read part of the excerpt from her book.

At another time she even flew to Virginia, where Biggie was performing and caught him in bed with a groupie dressed as a schoolgirl. "I jumped on top of her and started beating her ass. I mashed her in the face and then kicked her," she said in the autobiography. In other dose of love affair, Evans also found a photograph and telephone number in Biggie's car, tracked the woman down and gave her "a brief but thorough beat down".

"I thought maybe kicking some ass would get the word out that chicks better think twice before messing with my husband," Evans went on saying about her actions against the women who had affairs with her late husband. Also detailing on her encounter with late rapper Tupac Shakur, with whom she once was romantically linked, Evans stated in her book that she never had affair with him despite the fact that he tried to get close with her.

"Keep the Faith", which as well will chronicle Evans' stint with Bad Boy Records, will be hitting shelves on Friday, August 29.

Evans and Biggie married in August 1994. They have one son together, named Christopher. Biggie was murdered in Los Angeles in 1997 at the age of 24.

I Have to be real. Mabey asyoungsters dont know but Faith was too pretty to marry biggie. Big black ugly ass. It was for money. Lil kim love biggie for real. Biggie didn't appreciate kim. He was richand and disrespectful to kim. That's why he was with you and Charlie baltimore. Both high yellow women. Both of yall lite women. The movie is fake. Ask anyone from the old school. Watch documentaries. Big was wrong for abusing and mistreating kim.she stayed his woman and watched him get played. We love kim.

Women are horrible to each other. Instead of beating the shit outta the guy for cheating and kicking them out of their life, they attack the women. Seriously!??!?!? We also put stupid labels like "skank" on women because they have as much sex as men. If you're gonna call Lil Kim a skank, you best be calling every rapper in the game one too, you misogynist assholes.

Kim waz there for "BIG" from day one... He really played her, I love Lil Kim. She stuck by his side. Faith waz playin hard to get @ first. She waz after his money POINT BLANK! I think Lil Kim waz the ONLY person that really loved him. Everybody else waz just after his money. I think Puff and Faith set him up. That shows how FAKE ppl can be. They were never his real friends smh

How the hell is it her fault that those two are dead? She's not the one who shot them. And she's not the one who started that west coast-east coast shit. Pac just happened to mention her name in his song in the movie, but don't nobody really know what happened, so people need to keep they nasty little rumors to themselves. and to whoever says faith evans is ugly, or can't sing or some crap like that, you just jealous because she's beautiful, rich, and famous and you ain't. Don't hate, sweetie. don't hate.

Itsz faith evans dam!! An faith girl listen im only 15 an uu can probably say ii know nothing about love. But ii can say to uu that fightin those females were right. Especially lil kim hoe asz. Ii mean she knew you and big were together so wy wud she du that.jux ignorant. In thaa movie it clearly shows that lil kim was there first but so wat he never said ii love uu tu her he said ii got uu., an we seen how that turned out. Lil kim wuz nasty an triflin ii mean uu seen how she acted an dressed an rapped. Obviously he didnt want that in a female, he wanted someone more like uu. Someone he could love. She wuznt that at all! So keep your head up girl an never give up on lil chris aka future biggie smalls love uu faith an biggie!!! May god rest his lovin peaceful rhymin soul!!

this goes out to spoken.. the movie was not the reality of it all; it's nowhere near to everything that happened so u sayin u had to watch a part twice to prove sumthin doesn't say much.. also, faith was wifey no matter wat. kim was sideline. this is faiths autobiography so wat she says goes. how is anybody gonna say wat went down in her life better than she can. the whole situation is crazy. both pac's n big's music go hard. done.

First faith went after biggie first.After the chick on the ground kicked her she went after her.It took me watching it a second time to catch that.Second, i feel like they glorified lil kim in the movie.No one really knows what the outcome would have been between the two.However, i do know that there is a reason that a man keeps you as his jump-off and why a man makes you his wife. And the fact that he knew lil kim first speaks volumes,SHE WAS JUST A JUMP-OFF.Lil kim is a dirty ass ho with low self esteem and as great as biggie was he was wrong for mixing the two. Lets not forget that is was lil kim's stomach that had to be pumped bc she swallowed to much semen!

Lil kim did not deserve any respect in the movie, she was hooking up with someones husband.

Well, him beinq a brooklyn native like myself helps me lOve' him so much more .. But at the end of the day there's no rapper that has come close to his lyrical skills . He miqht be qone but his music is still bumpin thru the stereo speakers and I'm sure that'll never chanqe . The movie was incredible .. qave everyone a chance to meet the real biqqie outside his staqe character . I don't see why anyone wouldn't love him, and can we please cut all this disrespectful talk? Its really not necessary at the end of the day faith evans was his wife, bestfriend, and babymama . No disrespect to kim , noone knows what they went thru or what biqqie felt for her , but she deserved a part in the movie besides the jealous and sexual character they qave in .. Shoulda qiven her a little more respect she deserves it . All in all I love' biqqie ! "Brooklyn we made it " . -best rapper to ever live , qone but your music still lives . Your home misses you . rest in paradise .

Come on! You've got to be kiddng me. If I were to go through the trouble of finding my man with someone else... It would be him that would be hurting. Get real ladies. You deserve better! Demand it. Oh by the way, that would be the last he saw of me. Breaking his balls and goin' out the door. I'd probly take the girl out for a drink and tell her how things are. There is no man worth that trouble. You can do it better on you own! Give me a break! Much as I love Biggie... there's no man worth all that.

First off...if anyone paid any attention to the move...kim was BIG's jumpoff, not his girl...plus, she was the one trying to catch a ride because she knew the man had talent...there is a fine line between ya girl and your woman...Need I say more?!
posted by dee on Mar 16, 2009
biggie decided to marry faith. obviously the thing with kim was just a love affair from beginning to end. faith didnt steal anyone and i dont believe she was a gold digger. girl has talent and made her OWN way...

Miss Faith--I had mad respect for you until I watched Notorious--you became biggies wife after weeks in a relationship--but Lil Kim was his girl for years before you-lol-you look like a gold digger--poor lil kim-she was really down with Bigg-kills me when people talk bad about lil kim-shes was there first!!!!!!
