P!nk
forgot the little people on her way up the ladder ... at least according to a new lawsuit accusing her of cheating her ex producers out of $36k in royalties.

A company called Specialists Entertainment filed docs in NYC last month, claiming P!nk signed a deal with them, and Thunderstone Productions, to produce on her debut album back in 1999.

According to the suit, the two companies agreed to split producers' royalties 50-50 ... before cranking out 2 songs, "Can't Take Me Home" and "Hiccup" for P!nk -- real name Alecia Moore.

Well, the album blew up -- selling 5 million copies, according to the docs -- and helped launch P!nk's career. Only problem ... SE says the royalties they agreed to never showed up.

Now, SE is suing P!nk for $36,213.31, the remainder of the unpaid royalties.

A rep for P!nk told us this isn't the singer's problem, because ... "Sony are responsible for paying the producers."

I am not surprised by her response; she's very arrogant.

It was her first album; first-time artists usually get screwed financially and sign a bunch of do***ents without really knowing who they're suppose to be paying; the first paycheck is often a nasty surprise.

This was, what, 12-13 years ago? LOL! Plus, a new artist doesnt deal with this stuff, her label or management does. This money is nothing to her, shell spit it out like nothing.
