Her age[edit]

There are questions over her birth year as discussed in the Talk-page archive for this article. The cite that was here to a search page for the Federal Bureau of Prisons had nothing for a African-American Kimberly Jones, and nothing for Kimberly Denise Jones or Kimberly D. Jones. And Wikipedia guidelines disallow us, in any case, to link to a search page.

There is, in fact, an entire VH1 article here specifically saying that journalistic sources disagree on her age. ("How Old Is Lil’ Kim, Exactly?" by Bené Viera, July 11, 2012). An excerpt (with reliable sources boldfaced):

Her bios on Billboard, TV Guide, Yahoo Movies and Starpulse corroborate Wikipedia’s 1975 birth [at the time the article was written] On the other hand, AOL Music’s bio page for the BK rapper is in line with IMDB’s 1974. In 2005, MSNBC wrote, “Lil’ Kim, who turns 30 next week…” which would again make this a happy 37th birthday. And People.com in 2003 referred to her as a then 28-year-old making her 37 today [and not 39 until July 11, 2014].

The best example of how to approach this is Mariah Carey. Choosing one RS over another is POV unless we have definitive evidence such as a birth record. --Tenebrae (talk) 21:02, 13 February 2014 (UTC)

NJ Voter Registration has her as born in 1974. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 192.12.88.237 (talk) 17:08, 11 April 2014 (UTC)

That would be a great footnote. Do you have a link for that citation? --Tenebrae (talk) 22:57, 12 April 2014 (UTC)
Hi, I am able to find her in the Federal Bureau of Prisoners inmate locator (http://www.bop.gov/inmateloc/). Her BOP register number is 56198-054. Melonkelon (talk) 06:07, 29 July 2014 (UTC)

Her drivers license says she was born July 11, 1979. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Nilablack (talkcontribs) 01:39, 7 August 2014 (UTC)

There was considerable publicity around the release of her baby's photo on what was said to be her fortieth birthday, 11 July 2014. 31.55.60.218 (talk) 10:42, 15 October 2014 (UTC)
