The fallout from M.I.A's middle finger gesture during the half time show at the 2012 Super Bowl continues.
The rapper has long been in argument with the NFL as the league seeks "damages".
And now it seems the league's bosses are seeking over $16 million after claiming that the hip-hop star breached her performance contract and "tarnished the NFL's reputation" when appearing alongside Madonna and Nicki Minaj in 2012.
The long running legal battle has been keenly fought by both sides, and M.I.A is continuing to fight her corner however.
As reported by the Edmonton Sun, in recent arbitration documents she argues:
"The claim for restitution lacks any basis in law, fact, or logic,
"Continued pursuit of this proceeding is transparently an exercise by the NFL intended solely to bully and make an example of Respodents for daring to challenge the NFL."
The outspoken music star also cites the behavior of the league's own players, management, and team owners as having already sullied the reputation of the National Football League.
In light of Jim Irsay's recent arrest and the Miami Dolphins' bullying inquest she may have a point!
The argument began almost as soon as M.I.A had lifted her middle finger to the television cameras and the NFL have since come down hard on the artist.
But in these latest remarks, the singer argues her gesture is far from the first shocking moment associated with the famous half time entertainment at football's showcase event.
Reports show her to reference Michael Jackson's 1993 performance and his "genitalia adjustments", while also citing Prince and the provocative dancers used in the Madonna show itself.
When it comes down to it, it all seems fairly petty.
Fair enough M.I.A probably shouldn't have raised her middle finger in such of such a wide audience, but to seek $16 million in response seems extreme especially onsidering the league's own issues.
