It looks like Kelly Clarkson will be wearing her heart on her sleeve when she drops her new music. 

The singer and talk show host has shared a teaser clip of her break-up song, 'Mine'. The song is the lead single on her upcoming album, 'Chemistry'. 

"Someone's gonna show you/ How a heart can be used/Like you did mine," Kelly sings on the track. 

The 40-year-old also revealed that 'Mine' is due for release on 14 April 2023.

Kelly's fans are convinced that the single is about her ex-husband, Brandon Blackstock. She was ordered to pay him $200,000 (R3-million at the time) per month for both spousal and child support in 2021.

Kelly reportedly has to make the spousal support payments - which amount to $115,000 (R2-million) - until 31 January 2024. The singer has a reported net worth of around $50-million. 

The former couple has two children together - River Rose and Remington Alexander. Kelly's fans gave Brandon a major side-eye after their split, with some accusing him of using her. 

Some also pointed out that his father, Narvel Blackstock - who once managed Kelly's career, received a payout of $47.5-million when he divorced country star Reba McEntire in 2015.

It's not the first time Kelly has taken a swipe at her ex-husband in a song. 

The former 'American Idols' winner changed the lyrics of Gayle's smash hit, 'ABCDEFU',  during a cover of the song on 'The Kelly Clarkson Show'.

Gayle sings on the clean version of the song: 

Forget you and your mom and your sister and your job
And your broke down car and the things you call art

Kelly changed the lyrics to: 

Forget you and your dad and the fact that you got half
And my broken heart, turned that s**t into art.

The 'Stronger' singer is yet to reveal the release date for her new album. 'Chemistry' is her first studio album since 2017's 'Meaning of Life'.
