Britney Spears is at the centre of a legal spat over a deal to feature the Bumble dating app in her new video.
Bumble bosses allegedly agreed to pay $800,000 (£659,000) for the app to appear in the video thanks to a deal brokered with her record label bosses by entrepreneur Adam Kluger.
In a letter obtained by editors at TMZ, Britney's lawyer objected to the deal, claiming it was completed without her knowledge, and that the businessman acted fraudulently because he was not a representative for her.
The legal eagle has also reportedly questioned the cut of the proceeds the advertising guru was reportedly set to receive for arranging the deal.
Kluger denies the allegations and told TMZ, "We are going to defend the sterling reputation of The Kluger Agency in court as necessary. The allegations are false. The Kluger Agency has done nothing wrong."
He claims he never told Bumble executives he represented the singer, but simply acted as a link between the company and record label.
The music video is now reportedly being filmed without the Bumble app - a "feminist" version of rival Tinder. However, sources tell the outlet Bumble will still fund the video in exchange for Spears' involvement in one of the company's future projects.
