Rapper Lil' Kim has become a subject of a lawsuit which is filed by her recording company, Brookland Media, in Manhattan Supreme Court. In the legal document, the label claim that Kim refuses to continue making new musics for the label after her requests to change the terms of her contract are rejected.

The label say that they have paid Atlantic Records $200,000 to get the rapper out of her previous contract and have shelled out $240,000 to produce Kim's eight songs. However, instead of delivering all the recordings that their contract requires, Kim reportedly makes "outlandish" demands to have hip-hop stars Wyclef Jean and Akon added as producers for her album and won't enter the recording room until they have been signed as her collaborators.

In compensation for the alleged breach of contract, the recording company requires the 34-year-old singer to pay a total of 2 million dollars in legal fine. They also want the court to ban Kim from recording with another label.

"We think they're wonderful people and we expect to do business with them," Kim's lawyer, Londell McMillan responds to the lawsuit. "But they did not honor the terms of the agreement." To end the dispute, McMillan promises to bring the case "around a conference table, in front of a judge or over some martinis."
