NEW YORK- Cirque du Soleil is not doing flips over Justin Timberlake's hit song "Don't Hold the Wall."

The Canadian theatrical performance company on Thursday sued the superstar singer with allegations that the song copied part of one of Cirque du Soleil's original compositions without permission.

Timberlake's song appeared on his 2013 double album "20/20," which has sold more than two million copies.

The lawsuit filed in federal court in New York claimed Timberlake borrowed from the song "Steel Dream," which was originally on Cirque du Soleil's 1997 album, "QUIDAM."

The suit seeks a minimum of $800,000 in damages for copyright infringement.
