Missy Elliott lost her diamond necklace at the MTV Video Music Awards. 

The 48-year-old rapper has offered a “reward” to anyone who can help reunite her with her precious jewel after it vanished from her neck after she picked up the Video Vanguard Award – which was awarded for her music video contributions over the years – at the annual ceremony at the Prudential Center in New Jersey on Monday.

Taking to her Instagram account, the Work It hitmaker wrote: “Anyone found this necklace at the VMAs backstage or know anything about it, there’s a reward, it’s the shorter one… thanks (sic),” followed by a praying hands emoji. 

It’s not known how much the necklace is worth, but it is believed to have sentimental value considering that Missy is willing to part with her cash in order to see its return.
