So, without further ado, check out the 34-year-old's announcement (below)!

Former American Idol Host Brian Dunkleman's Estranged Spouse Labels Him As 'Physically Abusive' In New Court Docs

This is a really ugly case of he said/she said.

While former American Idol host Brian Dunkleman's crumbling nine year marriage was already in bad shape, it recently just got A LOT worse.

For those who don't know, Brian and his estranged spouse Kalea Dunkleman have been battling over their 3-year-old son Jackson for a while now. The war took a turn for the worse earlier this month when B.D. took Jackson from California to his native home of New York where he successfully obtained an emergency order retaining sole legal and primary physical custody of the boy.

Immediately after the actor took the couple's son out of state, Kalea fired back with an INTENSE appeal to the judge's decision and legal separation petition on May 9, claiming her ex is "physically abusive" as well as "constantly angry". K.D. also went on to allege in legal docs obtained by People Magazine that Brian's characterization of her as a dangerous alcoholic is "markedly different" from the truth.

According to papers filed by Ms. Dunkleman, she did struggle with alcohol at some point after giving birth to Jackson due to the high stress of her job (the momma worked as a publicist for high-profile chefs), and the fact that she was the main provider of income for her family. Coupled with being a new mom, the responsibilities of her life simply became too overwhelming.

The sad docs state:

This must have been music to her… well, you know.

Trent Harmon shocked us all when he beat out that bigot to become the final American Idol ever, but even he was surprised by his winner's song.

Apparently, Trent only learned that his debut single Falling was actually written by Keith Urban just hours before the live finale, but it turns out he also wasn't aware that the song was inspired by the judge's wife Nicole Kidman.

And by "inspired by"… we mean it's all about Keith going to town on her downstairs!

Trent was busy promoting his debut album through Big Machine Records to Rolling Stone Country on Tuesday when he admitted he was at a loss for words the first time he listened to the track's second verse, saying:
