LIL' KIM's bodyguard Suif Jackson has been jailed for 12 years after admitting firing at least 20 times in a shoot-out with a rival gang.

The incident took place when the entourages of Lil' Kim and rapper Capone-N-Noreaga clashed at a New York radio station in February 2001.

The LADY MARMALADE singer is still awaiting trial on charges she lied to a jury about the shooting, after denying she knew Jackson in a hearing in 2001.

Her lawyer refutes the charges against his client and says, "These charges have been extracted out of context, magnified out of proportion.

"She's been singled out and used because of who she is in the music industry."
