Kim fields dating
Since regaining her freedom, Kim has continued to be active musically — and also as a reality-TV star — and in June 2014 became a mother to a daughter, Royal Reign, whose father is the Honduras-born rapper Mr. Her parents, Ruby Mae Jones and Linwood Jones, both hailed from Trinidad. As a child, Kim was sent to a well-regarded Catholic school — Queen of All Saints in Brooklyn — in an attempt to provide a stable learning environment.
She has said that she did “whatever it took” to make ends meet during this period.
They continued to sleep together during Wallace’s marriage to the R&B singer Faith Evans.
On March 9, 1997, Wallace was shot and killed in Los Angeles; Kim was preparing for a show in New York City at the time.
She was discovered by Christopher Wallace, aka the Notorious B. G., who turned her into a star and became her lover before he was murdered in 1997 — a crime that has never been solved.
Kim was devastated by Wallace’s death, but eventually continued to forge a successful career.
