Paula Abdul is suing a tanning company, alleging a bad treatment left her with a burned thigh.

The former "X-Factor" judge filed a personal injury lawsuit against UVASUN West, Inc. at Los Angeles Superior Court on Thursday, Jan. 9, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The lawsuit, which was obtained by THR, claims that the 51-year-old dancer-choreographer suffered severe burns on Jan. 20, 2012.

Abdul alleges that she bought a SlimStar infrared body wrap treatment, which was applied "negligently, carelessly and recklessly" at the parlor.

This alleged application of the body wrap led to "severe and painful burns all over her body, with an especially severe second--or third-degree burn on a portion of the plaintiff's left thigh."

The lawsuit claims that the "Straight Up" singer has suffered "great mental, physical and nervous strain, pain and suffering, and loss of earnings potential" and she employed "physicians, surgeons and health care providers" to help treat her injuries.

The lawsuit also states that Abdul incurred medical and incidental expenses, as well as a loss of income, but the document does not specify the exact amount in either case.

Abdul is seeking "an amount demanded exceeds $25,000."
