Rapper extraordinaire Missy Elliot has had her eye on a Lamborghini Aventador for quite some time and last year, she made the leap and purchased a matte white version of the Italian supercar at an Illinois car dealership.

The problem is, it’s been at least six months and Missy Elliot has yet to get her hands on the Aventador. So she did what anybody would do in her position: she filed a lawsuit against Fox Valley Motor Cars.

According to the lawsuit that was first reported by TMZ, Missy Elliot made a down payment of $30,000 in cash, as well as ponied up her 2005 Bentley that was valued at $85,000. As part of the agreement, the dealership would then ship her $376,000 Aventador at this point of the year. The dealership is now not holding up their end of the bargain because the car’s market value has increased and thus, would cost more than the rapper initially thought.

Missy Elliot’s calling foul and has now turned to the legal system to get her Aventador. On top of that, she’s suing the dealership for breach of contract, a move that shouldn’t come as a surprise to anyone who believes they got shafted by somebody after an agreement was already in place.

For somebody who earns as much money as Missy Elliott, you would think that something like this would be settled before it got leaked to the press. But hey, sometimes you have to stand your ground, especially if somebody’s trying to pull a fast one on you, and let them work out their own problems. Not good publicity, Fox. Not good at all.

Kirby’s first exposure into the world of automobiles happened when he caught Knight Rider on television as a five-year old boy. David Hasselhoff didn’t leave much of an impression on him (that happened later on in Baywatch), but KITT certainly did. To this day, Kirby remains convinced that he will one day own a car with the same ‘spirit’ as the original KITT (not the 2008 monstrosity). He doesn't know when that will be, but until then, he’s committed to expressing his love for KITT, and all cars for that matter, here at TopSpeed.  Read More

She has to fight for it. So what’s the use of the signed agreement if they didn’t follow on it?

She could have it back. The agreement is settled so it must be done.

Missy Elliott, you have to defend your side. File a proper case for that mishandled agreement.

@LiveLongCoolCar: Is she going to lose in this case?

I think it’s much better if she cancels their agreement. It can ’cause a great damage both of their reputation as a buyer and seller.

It really needs a certain agreement to be signed up by both parties.

She must pay for the remaining unpaid amount. The company has the right to increase its selling price if the cost for the auto parts affects the manufacturing of the Aventador.

It’s not the right time for her to have this Aventador. She must consider the changes made during its production. The management has the right on putting it on hold, unless she pays for the remaining balance.

I guess the Aventador is not meant for her, but she’s right. They have their agreement, and that dealer disobeyed on their plan. The suit of Breech of Contract is needed, but it’ll be better if this issue remains in private rather making it on public.
