LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA: Zac Brown’s estranged wife Kelly Yazdi has opened up for the first time after getting temporary restraining orders.

The actress shared a video on her social media, on Sunday, May 19, addressing the whole situation, and calling it a "meritless complaint."

"No one — not even Zac Brown with all of his money, power, celebrity, and lawyers – may silence my right to freely express myself through art or, although I have to date declined to do so publicly, to speak about the circumstances of our pending divorce," she wrote.

"I intend to respond swiftly and robustly to his meritless complaint that publication of two poems on my personal social media account divulged any 'confidential information' about his business, much less authorizes a court to enjoin me from speaking about matters in my personal life that have nothing to do with my brief former work for the Zac Brown Collective, Inc."

Kelly Yazdi questions Zac Brown's action 

Yazdi pointed to Brown’s complaint that her recent Instagram post violates confidentiality agreements she had signed earlier with the country singer, reported ET.

The 33-year-old continued, "It is beyond ironic that Zac’s first act after filing an unnecessary public divorce lawsuit was to release a music video that deliberately mocked our wedding party from only a few months before — including a false and defamatory caricature obviously intended to be me and hurt me – followed by a second unnecessary and legally meritless public lawsuit and press release."

"Yet he now claims his 'only hope' is that we show each other 'mutual respect' by keeping  'private matters private' as we negotiate the terms of our divorce," she hit back at the ‘Chicken Fried’ crooner.

Yazdi is most likely referencing Avicii's remix of Zac Brown Band’s ‘Beautiful Drug,’ which came out in February. It shows a raucous party scene and a brunette leading lady in the video.
