The recent death of Playboy founder Hugh Hefner made Lil Kim reflect on one of the biggest regrets in her career. In an Instagram post, the Queen Bee lamented about turning down a seven-figure offer from Hef to pose in his iconic magazine.
“Hugh believed in my beauty more than myself, he always put me on a pedestal,” she wrote. “If you got to know him it was a pleasure and honor. He was such a great wonderful spirit and so much fun! I remember turning down a non-disclosed 7 figure offer from Hugh and till this day I regret it, not because of the money, but because it would have been an honor to be a part of this beautiful mans archive and historic catalog.”
Although Kim was regretting her decision, she explained that Hefner always showed her love despite turning down the offer to pose.
“You never changed up and you were always the same kind loving person,” she continued. “Every time I saw you, even after the fact that we didn’t get to make history 2gether, our love for each other always remained the same.
I Love You to the heavens Hugh and I will miss you dearly.”
