Brandy Norwood is being dragged to court over a $45,000 ring she was supposed to wear at the American Music Awards … a ring that’s allegedly gone missing.
Brandy and her stylist, Ashley Sean Thomas, are being sued by Elle B. Mambetov, a fashion designer and Beverly Hills store owner.
In the lawsuit, obtained by TMZ, Mambetov claims Brandy’s stylist approached her last year about borrowing jewelry and clothes for the singer to wear at the November Awards show … and the designer let them borrow some outfits and a Dreamboule Big Bang Diamond Ring.
Brandy and her stylist allegedly never returned the ring … and the designer claims it’s valued at around $45k. She says in her suit Brandy’s stylist told her it was last seen on the piano at Brandy’s Calabasas estate.
Brandy didn’t wear the ring or the outfit to the AMAs … but we’re told it’s not all that uncommon, because stylists usually put together many different options for celebs.
The ring is 18-karat rose gold, with a sapphire crystal dome and black volcanic stone.
The designer’s going after Brandy and her stylist for the value of the ring plus other damages … claiming she’s suffered financial losses and emotional trauma.
We reached out to Brandy and her stylist … so far, no word back.
