Macy Gray didn't try to hide it, but it's clear -- the "I Try" singer is in deep with a collection agency ... and it's all because she allegedly stiffed her publicity firm over $43,000.
According to docs filed last week in L.A. County Superior Court, Gray entered into a $2,000/month contract with a PR firm back in 2005 and racked up a $43,378.77 bill ... which she refused to pay.
The collection agency wants her to pay every cent, stat. So far, no word from Gray's reps.
