(Newser) – Simon & Schuster Inc. sued rappers Foxy Brown and Lil' Kim yesterday, saying they were paid advances for books they never delivered. The publishing house wants Brown to return a $75,000 advance she received in 2005 for an autobiography called Broken Silence and wants Lil' Kim to return the $40,000 advance they doled out in 2003 for a proposed novel.
