Missy Elliott is caught in some legal troubles because she didn't Work It well enough to get people excited about a couple of her concerts!
That is, she didn't show up at all to the event that was supposed to promote two of her shows!
The papers say that in November 2012, the rapper was slotted to appear on Brazil's Rede Globo television network, so she could plug two upcoming performances in Rio de Janeiro and Porto Alegre.

But, the 44-year-old bailed on her TV spot.
And according to the docs, ticket sales ultimately did not do well, and it's completely because Missy never showed up to promote the gigs!
Jean Faustin, who was the one who booked her for the shows in the first place, said he had to cancel the concerts because the box office flopped.
So now, he's suing to get back the $75,000 deposit he paid her, and is also supposedly asking for interest! Woah!
The Lose Control artist hasn't commented on the controversy, so it'll be interesting to see if she can put her game down, flip it, and reverse it well enough to get out of this one!
