A concert promoter wants $ 75,000 from Missy Elliot and her staff for allegedly failing to show up for performances in Brazil.

She didn’t work it.

Rap star Missy Elliott and her team of managers are being sued for $ 75,000 for failing to show up for two small concerts and a television appearance while appearing at a big music fest in Rio de Janeiro three years ago.

Concert promoter Jean Faustian says in papers filed in Manhattan Supreme Court that she gave Elliott’s staff the deposit toward those three appearances, but the “Work It” rapper, whose real name is Melissa Arnett, never showed and Faustian wants her money back.

Faustian’s lawyer, Carlos Carvajal, said his client made the deal, promising to pay the singer a total of $ 150,000 to perform in Rio and Porto Alegre and to appear on Brazil’s big morning TV show, because she knew she was already in the country in November 2012 for a big music fest in Rio.

“We love Missy but her staff …. we don’t know what happened,” Carvajal said.

The singer’s spokesman issued a statement Tuesday night saying: “Supa Dupa Fly Productions, Inc. and Missy Elliott vehemently deny any and all of Mr. Faustin’s claims … Mr. Faustin has not submitted any agreement of any kind … signed by” the singer or her representatives.

“At no point did Supa Dupa Fly Productions or Missy Elliot act in bad faith.”
