Lil' Kim being sued by Makeup Artist Samantha Ravndahl

A Vancouver-based makeup artist is gearing up to sue multi-platinum American rapper Lil’ Kim for copyright infringement over a “pop art zombie” image.

Samantha Ravndahl, 20, posted a makeup tutorial to social media sites in early October, 2012, demonstrating step-by-step how to create a ghoulish Halloween look.

Within a couple of weeks, one of her Instagram followers told Ms. Ravndahl the image had been posted to the Instagram account of the New York rapper, whose real name is Kimberly Denise Jones.

“I went there and saw that she had posted it with her copyright over it,” Ms. Ravndahl said.

“She didn’t credit me or anything. I thought it was kind of weird and looked into it more. I found all these other places she had been
using this image as promotional album art for her song.”

“She was like, ‘Hey, Lil’ Kim’s sorry. She’s totally fine giving you a shout out,’” Ms. Ravndahl said. “I said, ‘No, I make a living off selling my images. I can’t just give this away.’”

That call was followed by one from the rapper’s manager, Ms. Ravndahl said, who told her the exposure would be great for the young artist. Again, she said, she declined.


“I don’t really want to be associated with Lil’ Kim for the rest of my life,” Ravndahl said.
