Missy Elliott suing Illinois dealership for holding her Lamborghini Aventador hostage
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.
