The Lighters Up star had originally been booked to perform at the Mid-Hudson Civic Center in Poughkeepsie on 11 March (16), but the gig was pushed back until 1 April (16) due to slow ticket sales.

However, Kim skipped the gig altogether amid claims she failed to receive any deposits to confirm her appearance, reports

Instead, the hip-hop veteran decided to extend her stay in Los Angeles, where she hung out with new pal Kim Kardashian. The two ladies enjoyed a night out together last week (ends01Apr16), and decided to stage their own version of talk show host James Corden's hit TV segment Carpool Karaoke.

Wearing matching nude outfits, the stars and their friend Tracy Nguyen were seen bopping their heads as they bust out a few rhymes for the camera in the footage posted on Lil Kim's Instagram page on Thursday (31Mar16).

"Part 1 carpool karaoke ride with us!! #carpoolkaraoke #LilKimSeason", she captioned the upload.
