Britney Spears tried to cancel the European leg of her ONYX HOTEL tour, because she's sick of life on the road - according to reports.

The pop beauty only kicked off her European shows in London last Monday (26APR04) - but she has already been dogged by excessive tabloid exposure and the revelation she had an affair with one of her male dancers KEVIN FEDERLINE.

According to American news site PAGESIX.COM, Britney - who was photographed in tears after a gig in England last week (ends30APR04) - became so desperate, she tried to cancel the tour.

A music industry insider tells Page Six, "She is desperate to not do the Onyx Hotel tour any more. She tried to cancel it, but she is contractually bound. She is tired and frustrated. But it's not just her - her dancers are miserable too and trying to quit."

According to Page Six, Spears is still involved with Federline, even though his actress girlfriend Shar Jackson is seven months pregnant with their second child, and "wants to spend as much time with him as she can".

But the singer's spokesperson insists all is well in the Britney camp, "She is tired, but anyone would be with that schedule. She will complete her tour as planned."
