WORKING GIRL star Melanie Griffith has been at loggerheads with the crew on her Broadway musical CHICAGO - over underwear.

The Hollywood actress, who plays ROXIE HART in the hit stage show, refuses to wear the panties provided as part of her costume because, she tells the wardrobe department, she's worried they'll be washed in a batch with other castmembers' lingerie.

A source moans to American tabloid the STAR, "We end up having to go out to a fancy lingerie shop every other day to buy her $18 (GBP11.25) panties and a bra."
