Lil' Kim has been holding her own in this season's 'Dancing With The Stars,' but it looks like the pint-size rapper may have to take it easy due to an injury she acquired last week during rehearsal. Kim went to visit the show's masseuse before her April 7 performance and it was there she discovered she'd popped a rib out of place and bruised a muscle.

"I have a small injury, well it's not small, but I popped my rip out earlier this week and ripped one of the muscles under my rib. I didn't know," Kim revealed. The 'DWTS' masseuse was able to push Kim's rib back into place, and despite being in pain following the procedure she still managed to get through the performance.

Kim has been instructed to rest and ice the troubled area, but the rapper plans on moving forward and says learning her routine for next week is top priority. "There is no time to relax. We have to learn the jive and it's really energetic -- what do I do? I'm excited for the dance, but the injury has me a little nervous."
