Lil’ Kim Laughs Off Wardrobe Malfunction

Rapper Lil’ Kim has laughed off her wardrobe malfunction during Monday night’s episode of Dancing with the Stars, when she almost exposed her breasts live on air.

The busty star performed an energetic jive with professional partner Derek Hough for the competition, but after completing the dance, Kim’s skimpy top slipped down and nearly showed off more flesh than she intended.

However, show host Tom Bergeron came to Kim’s rescue and stepped forward to shield her from the cameras as she readjusted her costume.

Addressing the incident, Kim tells OK! magazine, “Oh, the girls were trying to come out again! I hate it when they do that — they’re so nosy!”

The costume malfunction didn’t affect the judges’ opinions of her jive — Kim won high praise from the panel and scored a total of 28 out of 30, making her one of the favorites to win the competition.
