Report: Britney Spears Stiffed Backup Dancers

by at . Comments

Backup dancers from Britney Spears' infamous MTV VMA debacle likely can't get her new single, "Gimme More," out of their heads.

And not because the song is good. It's not!

A source tells Us Weekly that the dancers have yet to be fully compensated for their work leading up to the September 9 event - which went great.

"The dancers were paid for the actual show and some of the rehearsals, but not all of them," an industry insider says.

The problem may stem from Britney Spears being unceremoniously dropped by her own management agency, The Firm, back on September 17.

Not the same firm featured in the Tom Cruise movie The Firm, we're guessing.

"Her management usually pays the dancers," explains the source.

McDonald/Selznick Associates, which booked the dancers, had no comment on the matter. But it's just the latest bad news for Britney Spears.

Her family feud and bitter custody battle continue to dominate headlines, most recently yesterday when her "parenting coach" slammed her.
