Mariah Carey appears to have taken a shot at estranged husband Nick Cannon, changing the lyrics of a song to “I know you cheated, motherf*cker.”

The singer was performing the Billie Holiday classic “Don’t Explain” in Tokyo, and it sure seems like she made a not-so-subtle alteration to the words.

While the original lyrics are simply “I know you cheat,” Carey seems to sing a longer, more explicit phrase.

She and Cannon are currently living apart.

He has subsequently denied rumors that he cheated with Amber Rose.

Beyond her “Don’t Explain” lyrics, Carey had some singing problems as she kicked off her world tour in Tokyo over the weekend.

Listen to Carey’s apparent “motherf*cker” reference at 4:30 in the video below, and tell us what you think.
