Madonna has allegedly attacked ex-boyfriend Brahim Zaibat in newly leaked song lyrics.
The Holiday hitmaker, 56, has already slammed pop rival Lady Gaga and ex-husband Guy Ritchie after lyrics from her upcoming album were released last week.
But her toyboy former beau, 26, appears to be the latest on the receiving end of some rather harsh words in her recently-penned song, Unapologetic B***h.
According to The Sun, Madonna’s new track slams the dancer’s sexual prowess as well as mocking his lack of wealth, following their break up in 2013 after three years of dating.
The song contains the lyrics: ‘I know you’d like it if I stayed home and cried. But that ain’t gonna happen, here’s the reason why: When we did it, I’ll admit it, wasn’t satisfied.
Another line boasted: ‘I’m popping bottles that you can’t even afford. I’m throwing parties and you won’t get in the door.’
The track has a reggae-themed chorus, which Madonna ends with an expletive-filled rant against her former lover, with the line: ‘You know you never really know how much your bulls**t cost me, but f**k you.’
Cut me down the middle,
f***ed me up a little.
You said I was your queen.
I tried to give you everything.
And now you want your freedom
You got just what you came for,
a bit of fame and fortune,
and I’m no longer needed.
‘You tore me into pieces,
you didn’t have no damn reason.
I let you in my kingdom,
you helped yourself with everything.
‘I curse the day we met.
This memory is haunting me.
I wish I could forget.’
Two Steps Behind Me
You’re a copycat,
Where is my royalty?
You’re a pretty girl,
I’ll give you that.
But stealing my recipe,
it’s an ugly look,
Did you study me hard enough?
You’re never gonna be,
you’re just a wannabe me.
Like a sister all messed-up,
who’s gonna help you out?
In your fantasy, you can try it all.
But you can’t be me.
You can walk the walk,
even talk the talk.
But you’ll always be
two steps behind me.
The 56-year-old singer has allegedly taken a swipe at her ex-husband, whom she married in 2000 and divorced in 2008, in leaked lyrics taken from her upcoming 13th studio album.
She sings of the director in the song ‘Heartbreak City’: “Cut me down the middle, f***ed me up a little. You said I was your queen. I tried to give you everything. And now you want your freedom.
“You got just what you came for, a bit of fame and fortune, and I’m no longer needed. You tore me into pieces, you didn’t have no damn reason. I let you in my kingdom, you helped yourself with everything.
“I curse the day we met. This memory is haunting me. I wish I could forget.”
However, Guy, 45 – with whom she has sons Rocco and David – isn’t the only one Madonna has hit out at in her songwriting as she’s also criticised the ‘Applause’ hitmaker, 28, for “copying” her.
In the track ‘Two Steps Behind Me’, she sings: “You’re a copycat, Where is my royalty? You’re a pretty girl, I’ll give you that. But stealing my recipe, it’s an ugly look.
“Did you study me hard enough? You’re never gonna be, you’re just a wannabe me. Like a sister all messed-up, who’s gonna help you out?”
Meanwhile, there’s no guarantee that either of the songs will make it onto the album as the ‘Hung Up’ hitmaker has penned around 50 tracks for the collection, but friends of the blonde beauty insist she isn’t holding back when it comes to her songwriting.
A source told The Sun newspaper: “They’re very harsh lyrics but Madonna really wants to express herself again.”

Diplo has joined Madonna for three studio sessions so far, and the alcohol was flowing on one night:
They connected in New York and he’s clearly excited about how the recording went. “One [song] is super weird,” Diplo says. “Late one night in the studio we got a little bit drunk and she improvised a little hook and we made a song out of it. I think it’s going to be a breakthrough if she can manage to get everything together and get it out properly.”
What does Madonna drink when she gets drunk in the studio?
Rosé. “It was nice,” says Diplo. “I don’t think she really drinks, either.”
Madonna invited Diplo to her Oscar party… but he couldn’t make it. Still, the pair began texting, and Diplo sent Madonna over some music. Madge took the production more seriously than Diplo could have imagined. “She wrote me back like a 20-page text, notes about all these songs,” he says — and a collaboration was underway.
One of the in-the-works Madonna tracks has unwittingly evolved into a big pop record. “That song is on like version 20,” Diplo says of the as-yet-untitled track. “It went from a piano ballad to a ‘Turn Down for What’-style song, which I didn’t like. Now it’s somewhere in the middle.”
