Miley Cyrus’ controversial world tour is reportedly in hot water after just two shows over a flood of complaints about the former child star’s sexy antics onstage.

The “Can’t Be Tamed” hitmaker kicked off her Bangerz trek in Vancouver, Canada last week and played the second night of the 60-gig run in Tacoma, Washington on Sunday.

After a short break she is due to resume the concerts in Anaheim, California on Thursday, but new reports suggest the saucy show is already coming under fire following complaints about Cyrus’ explicit performance.

During the gigs, the former “Hannah Montana” star simulates oral sex with a man wearing a Bill Clinton mask, gropes a backing dancer’s butt, and parades around the stage in a leotard sporting a cannabis leaf design.

The singer’s management team has reportedly been inundated with complaints from angry parents amid rumors some venue bosses are threatening to pull the concerts.

A source tells Australian music blog The Fix, “Miley’s management have been flooded with complaints, mainly from parents, since her tour began last week in Canada with calls for the entire tour to be axed. Her team, including management, record label execs (sic) and the entire tour staff including the director, costume department and choreographers, have been called for an emergency meeting as arenas across the U.S. threaten to pull out of the show.”
