Lil’ Kim is calling out talk show host Andy Cohen for his “messy” antics.
The Brooklyn rapper, who turns 45 on Thursday, took to Instagram during an expletive-laced rant to announce she’s canceling her upcoming appearance on Cohen’s “Watch What Happens Live,” in addition to other media outlets who didn’t “put some (expletive) respect on my name.”
“I had a cool relationship with (Cohen), I thought,” Lil’ Kim said, adding that her “publicist and manager made the executive decision to shut it down.”
She continued: “At this point, it’s about me. I refuse to… keep doing all these interviews, publications, and all of that… if (expletive) are not going to respect who I am, what I’ve done, where I’m at now.”
The rant has been deleted from her Instagram account.

Lil’ Kim didn’t elaborate on what Cohen did to anger her, but she did tell her fanbase that, “If I’m turning something down I want ya’ll to know it’s a reason behind everything.”
“I’ve been trying my best to do whatever it takes to make my fans happy… If y’all don’t see me doing press it’s cause I’m fighting… These (expletive) trying to use me for my iconic status (to get) a moment,” she added.
Lil’ Kim last appeared on Cohen’s show in 2012, where she addressed her long-standing feud with Nicki Minaj. She was set to make an appearance this week to promote her new VH1 reality show “Girls Cruise,” which premieres July 15.
She said she will also be skipping the “Today Show” and “Access Hollywood.”
