A CREW worker is suing the company who created a giant tongue slide for Miley Cyrus' 'Bangerz' tour, claiming working on the construction of the prop left him "badly injured".

Charles Nicholas Sarris has filed a claim against ShowFx Inc., the Los Angeles-based equipment supply company which was hired to make the novelty mouth slide for the 'Wrecking Ball' star's 'Bangerz' tour, in which he claims he suffered an accident while working on the construction of the prop.

According to gossip website TMZ, Mr. Sarris says the equipment and tools provided to him by the company failed, causing him to fall and badly hurt himself last month.

In the lawsuit, he claims ShowFX failed to warn him about the potential dangers and is suing for unspecified damages.

Earlier this week, Miley was forced to perform her track '23' in her underwear after missing her costume change during a gig.

She tweeted: "not a new outfit for 23 I didn't make my quick change and I couldn't not come out for the song so I just had to run out in my undies :(

"Never happened to me before. But I love my fans as much as they love me! I couldn't miss 23

"Show must go on :( (sic)"

Miley kicked off her raunchy world tour in Vancouver, Canada, last month and came under fire for antics such as simulating a sex act on a man wearing a Bill Clinton mask, but she insists she gave fans a pre-warning her shows would be X-rated.

She previously wrote on Twitter: "You can't say I didn't warn you. Now sit back relax & enjoy the show. #bangerztour (sic)"
