David Copperfield is firing back at two companies that sued him over a canceled tour in Southeast Asia and the Persian Gulf -- by filing a lawsuit of his own!

According to documents filed in Los Angeles Superior Court on Friday, Copperfield says that Viva Art International Ltd. and Maz Concerts Inc. owe him $4 million under an "artist's guaranteed fee," in which he was to be paid $2.8 million for the Southeast Asia portion of the tour and the rest for performances in the Persian Gulf.

Copperfield's lawyer exercised an option in his contract to cancel the tours because the magician wasn't paid on time, saying the two companies were late in paying Dave $500,000, and the attorney feared a repeat of "the fiasco in which Mr. Copperfield and his staff were stranded on tour with no assurance of payment."

Back in November, the two companies filed a breach of contract suit against Copperfield, claiming they fronted him $2.2 mil to cover costs. They claim he backed out because he didn't want to face the press after he was accused of sexually assaulting a Seattle woman
