The Jump Off hitmaker took to Twitter.com late on Thursday (28Jan16) to blast the websites and blogs which had posted the eye-opening profile shot, which made it look like the rap star was losing her battle with the bulge.

She raged, "Really? The hate is so real... You bloggers should be ashamed of yourself for promoting this foolishness knowing that this is SO fake just like all of you haters."

"But I got a good idea where this is coming from," she added. "What's in the dark always comes into the light. Carry on."

LIL' KIM later posted a shot of herself onstage at the Boom Bash concert in Pennsylvania last month (Dec15), from the rear, and urged those poking fun at the apparently fake shot to "kiss my a**".

The Photoshopped image appears to have been taken backstage at the same concert.
