Comment on the Height of Lil Kim

Laura said on 30/Mar/14
I think she is 4"10 tops. She is shorter than Christina Aguilera by at least 2-3 inches, and Christina is shorter than a 5"1 Nicole Richie. I don't see how Lil Kim can be 4'11 when Christina is clearly no taller than 5"0. She looks to be similarly sized to Snooki, who is 4"8. I think Rob's estimation is right at 4"9.5.

There is barely any difference between 5ft and 4"11''s hardly noticeable..:-|

She is technically a dwarf and still had the braveness to become a rapper.

JEEZE! really? does it matter what size you are? everyones beautiful in there own way! C'mon it doesnt matter if your 3ft or 7ft. everyone is the same and what size you are doesnt define you as a person. i think men likes a person for who they are not there height and men who wouldnt date a girl because they are too tall or short are shallow. tall people are pretty and so are small. those that are hurt from theses comments shouldnt be. everyone was born for a reason and you are all beautiful. get on with your life, when you look back you will relise that things you got told dont matter. there are people in this world who have real disabilities and i bet half of them would rather be you no matter what height you are.

Wtf? Why are you saying "real men only date small feminine dolls"? That sounds beyond stupid. Girls don't date men because of their height, men don't date women because of their height. You have got to be really insecure to think that. Besides, don't say tall women are less attractive. How about Charlize Theron, Tyra Banks, Taylor Swift, Christina Hendricks, Blake Lively, Nicole Kidman, Julia Roberts, every single fashion and Victoria Secret's model in the world? Get real.

Height, colour, sex and age doesn't matter. I'm 5'9 (about 177 cm) girl and pretty proud of that. But I have friends that are almost 30 cm shorter than me and they are really perfect like that. Go Lil Kim!

I'll be surprised, if she's 4'11 - 5'0. Good eyes, Rob!
4'9 is not a weird thing for girls (ok! It's a weird in Hollywood world, but not our world). There're still a lot of girls at this height in E. Asia, S. America... Especially, it is simple in Indochina. I even live in N. Europe and I still see some 4'8, 4'9 healthy girls....

Alexandra said on 27/Jun/07
Oh my god!!! How can she be THAT short??? I was 146 cm when I was ten!!! I mean, I am from Serbia, and we're kinda tall, but still...
Kathryn said on 25/Jun/07, i didn´t see any comment of u here, hä? so why do u take a hand in this? and if u write one more comment like that, i´ll show u how to get a life! god, i hate people who take a hand in sth. but dont even have a clue what they´re talking about...
titch said on 20/Jun/07
i am 5'1 and a 6'2 friend once said i was 4'9. he refused to believe i was any more even when i said he could measure, all because my other friend who was the same height was wearing heels. these things are deceptive. i think this is too little for her.

You need to get a life. All I see is comments from you on here! Do something positive with your life rather than commenting on what u consider short (as if anyone really cares about your opinion anyways!)
Kathryn said on 13/Jun/07
this is short, okay? absolutely extremely short!! and noone can say, this tall in any way, she´s a real pudgy. a 9year old kid is only this height if its gonna be tall an adult but this height here is like the height of a 10-12 year old kid of course.

Looking at Danny Devito's photo with Glenn, Lil Kim looks significantly taller even accounting for heels.
anonymous said on 24/Apr/07
i have met her before. she was shockingly short. nowhere near 5`0. easily 4`10 and under.
hello said on 9/Apr/07
trueheight, a 9year old kid isn't 4 ft 9. Only in the netherlands, and they are the tallest people of the world.

Cutie in my experience, over here in England, girls get confused over their height. I see some who are clearly short, but call themselves 5ft 3. I'm 5'8", and girls who come up to my chest call themselves 5ft to 5ft 2.
trueheight said on 8/Apr/07
wow, how did you guys seem to downgrade her to the height of a 9yr old? I thought the consensus was 4'11?
john said on 5/Apr/07
Sure do! I have a 4'10"/11" friend and I'm totally crazy about her!
cutie said on 6/Mar/07

The picture that T. posted here is hillarious. What a freak show. Too much make up can make women look really ugly.
As for Kim, probably under 4'11". I remember seeing a documentary several years ago where she and her friends spoke about her life etc. She mentioned that Biggy didn't take her seriously at all in the beginning, because of how small she was.
A said on 16/Nov/06
Her jail photo shows her at 5 feet 0 inches

[Padraig: If you were going to ask a question on which singers were under 5 feet, my iron clad response would be little kim]

Towards the end of this clip of an appearance on the Howard Stern show, Kim is asked by Howard her height. She jokingly says "5'11", then after a bunch of giggles, she answers "5 feet": Click Here

I specifically remember a 1996 article (I think, in Black Beat magazine) on Kim had the writer describing her as the '4 foot 8' rapper. I don't believe that she's THAT short though. Just a sub-5 footer who quotes herself as such sometimes. lol
ice said on 30/Jan/06
Okay, this one I know. She was doing an interview on BET a few years back ( wearing some purple outfit) The lady asking questions took notice to how little she was, and came out and asked her. Kim replied "4 foot 11." I don't know where the 5'0 or more claims came from

i read in loaded mag a good 11 year ago when first i herd of her that she was a 4ft9 raper
CelebHeights Editor said on 26/Dec/05
She did say once, "I say I'm 5ft and a half, but I'm really just 5ft"
Great Porro said on 18/Dec/05

J. said on 23/Feb/05
She was wearing shoes in the mugshot, hence the 5'0" height.
