Lil' Kim's set at London's Lovebox festival was axed on Sunday (21Jul13) after she reportedly failed to show up in time for the gig.
Fans had gathered for the Lady Marmalade hitmaker's appearance at the event in Victoria Park, but were left fuming when informed the musician's show was cancelled because she was running late.
A statement from organisers reads, "Lil' Kim did not turn up to her set on time. The festival had no other option but to maintain the scheduled running order to ensure the other main stage acts were not disrupted."
The rapper has not commented on the last-minute cancellation directly, but has re-tweeted a message from public relations guru Lizzie Grubman.
The note from Grubman reads, "Due to circumstances that were out of Kim's control, her performance at LoveBox was cancelled. Kim was on-site and on time for her performance and apologizes to all of her fans for the inconvenience."
