Kelly Clarkson appeared to brutally call out her ex-husband Brandon Blackstock amid her ongoing legal battle.
The couple filed for divorce in 2020 after nearly seven years of marriage, during which they welcomed two children - River, eight, and Remington, six.
Following their split, the 'Stronger' singer was then sued by her former father-in-law Narvel Blackstock's company, Starstruck Entertainment.
The management firm, which had Clarkson on the roster for more than 10 years, claims she owes them $1.4 million (£1.1m) and an additional $5.4million (£4.3m) in unpaid commissions.
But court documents obtained by Entertainment Tonight showed that the 40-year-old countersued and accused the company of violating California Labor Code by 'procuring, offering, promising, or attempting to procure employment or engagements' without the necessary license.
Her lawsuit also claimed that any agreements should be declared 'void and unenforceable' and that the firm should return any money that she had previously paid them.
As the legal battle continues, it's no doubt made the break up all the more painful and difficult.
And Clarkson appeared to address the situation on last night's (30 March) episode of The Kelly Clarkson Show, where she reimagined the song 'Abdefu' by Gayle.
The original version is already about a bad breakup, with the lyrics stating: "F*** you and your mom and your sister and your job, and your broke-ass car and that s*** you call art."
But in Kelly's edit, she sang: "Forget you and your dad and the fact that you got half, and my broken heart, turn that [expletive] into art."
And to drive it home, she repeated the lyrics on each of the choruses.
Since the rendition was uploaded on YouTube, fans have flooded the comments section with words of praise for the star for seemingly calling out her ex-husband and father-in-law.
"Kelly is putting Narvel and Brandon on some serious blast," said one. "They both sound like a couple of grifters, but Kelly is having NONE of that nonsense."
Another wrote: "Kelly went for blood on these lyric rewrites and she got it. Yes queen."
"Living for the lyric changes," added a third. "Kelly Clarkson deserves everything!"
And a fourth chimed in: "Okay, that lyric change is one of the many reasons Kelly is incredible, and I’m here for it! So stoked for new music coming soon."
Tyla has reached out to Clarkson's reps for comment.
Clarkson and Blackstock settled their divorce after two years of negotiations, with the singer retaining primary custody of their children.
She had previously opened up on how the divorce had affected their children, telling The Angie Martinez IRL podcast: "Sometimes they'll say, especially the past two years - and it kills me and I want them to be honest, so I don't ever say, 'Oh god, don't tell me that'.
"But a lot of times it would be like, 'You know, I'm just really sad. I wish mommy and daddy were in the same house'."
