Missy Elliott: Hall of Famer in legal trouble?

Not so long ago, Missy Elliott became the first female rapper to be inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame. But the rapper is looking at some serious legal troubles, as the author of Bald is Beautiful – Jodi Pliszka claimed that Elliott used her image on the cover of her 2016 single – Pep rally.

Apparently, Jodi has alopecia (Medical condition of hair loss) and the picture of the bald girl seen on Elliott’s top happens to look somewhat very similar. The author revealed that she never gave permission to use her image, which was shot years ago, while she was modelling. Check out the two pictures below:

If the pictures aren't inspected thoroughly, the picture on Elliott’s top does look like Jodi. But we will have to wait and see if the court feels the same. Jodi is suing Missy and her label, Atlantic Records, for unspecified damages. Do you think this case hurts Missy’s Hall of Fame reputation?
