Lil' Kim and Keyshia Cole

Lil’ Kim and Keyshia Cole Spar Over Friendship on Twitter

Keyshia Cole is having a rough week. After being shut out of the nominations for the 2011 BET Awards, the singer and Lil’ Kim denounced their friendship in front of their Twitter followers.

“N while we’re addressing everything, Lil Kim and I a r not ‘friends’ I take that term very seriously. We made wonderful music. That is it,” tweeted Keyshia, who collaborated with Kim on her hit single “Let It Go.”

But the Queen Bee stung back with a series of fiery tweets. Read a selection below.

U got that right. We are not friends. The same way U take friendship seriously i take loyalty serious.

The whole world has seen me extend my hand to u over and over again.

Only someone who’s trying to build a sincere relationship does shows 4 free & supports. u did not pay me a dime 4 none of that.
That warrants some type of loyalty and respect.

Friend or no friend i would have never let anybody disrespect u on my record but i can’t expect everyone to be as real as i am.

At the end of the day karma is as real as i am and it’s coming to get u. oh wait…if it hasnt got u already…

My love & loyalty to u got u a hit, ur friendship with ur friend got u a flop.

looks like u need to choose ur friends more wisely dont u think? #teamlilkim LEGGGGOOOO

Keyshia responded:

Kim that was a gr8 look 4 I coming out of jail just as it was a gr8 look for missy to have produced it.

all I’m saying is don’t have everyone thinking I was disloyal as a “friends” cause we were never that and u know it. No disrespect.

They went back and forth, with Kim adding:

Loyalty and respect has nothing to do with friendship…BOOM

Loyalty and respect is about returning a kindness. Have you ever came out and supported me at my shows? i dont think so.

Yes it was a good look for me but it was a great look for u. At the end of the day it was a hit on YOUR album.

Sticking 2 the situation. Again I would have never let anyone disrespect U on my song. That’s loyalty & respect. End of story.

Keyshia addressed the situation one more time before putting it to bed.

I don’t have beef with anyone. I’m done. I feel the way I feel about friendship and loyalty. I ain’t never been fake. All I’m saying.
