Britney Spears is taking her insurance companies to court, demanding they cover the money she lost when she cancelled her ONYX HOTEL tour.

The pop star, who was forced to axe dates on the tour last year (04) after suffering a knee injury, is angry her backers won't reimburse the $9.8 million (GBP5.1 million) she lost.

American court show CELEBRITY JUSTICE has obtained a lawsuit filed in New York by Spears against several firms, who argue the injury she suffered was a past one she didn't disclose in paperwork.

In fact, Spears had minor knee surgery in 1999. The singer claims she simply forgot about the surgery because it was so long ago and has since fully recovered.
