The Work It star was booked to play gigs in Rio de Janeiro and Porto Alegre in November, 2012, and reportedly agreed to promote the shows in a scheduled appearance on Brazilian TV network Rede Globo.

However, in legal documents obtained by TMZ.com, concert booker Jean Faustin claims Elliott failed to show up for the TV promos, which he alleges subsequently led to poor ticket sales. As a result, both concerts were cancelled.
