Following reports that Ewan McGregor and Eve Mavrakis’ are set to divorce after 22 years of marriage, their 16-year-old daughter, Esther, hit the headlines after seemingly penning an emotional song about her father’s alleged affair.

Featuring lines such as: “I read some dumb s*** that I found online” and “I don’t know how to forgive, I don’t know if I can, ruining me”, it didn’t take long for people to link the song to Ewan, with her followers blasting his actions in the comments.

One wrote: “So sorry for what you are going through. Can’t believe your father would behave in this way.”

Another added: “Beautiful. So sorry for your pain, he abandoned his wife and children, that is really heartbreaking. Some day he will regret turning away from his family.”

However, Esther has now taken to her Instagram account to deny that she was “slamming” her famous dad in the song.

Posting to her Instagram Story, she wrote: “My song was not a slam, but a way of expressing my feelings with what I love most. Music.”

Ewan hit the headlines in October when he was pictured kissing his Fargo co-star Mary Elizabeth Winstead in a London diner, despite being married to Eve.

It was later reported that Eve had been left “furious” by Ewan’s fling, with sources adding that she is “convinced” that the pair had an affair behind her back.

It was previously claimed that Ewan told Eve that he had feelings for his 32-year-old co-star back in May, however, he insisted that nothing had happened between them.

An insider added: “Eve is sure Ewan and Mary were together before he confessed his feelings for her. It is hard for her to believe him.

“This situation is extremely difficult for her and their four children.”

Eve had welcomed Mary Elizabeth into her and Ewan’s family home after she was cast alongside her husband in the US TV show.

Ewan and Mary Elizabeth started filming Fargo in Calgary, Canada, in January, with Ewan and Eve’s marriage said to have “abruptly” hit the rocks over the summer, with it reportedly “clear” that the pair had grown close when Ewan returned home from shooting.

An insider revealed: “Eve wanted to work through it but a month later it was clear Ewan had made his decision. Eve was his love and supported his career.

“They think he might be having a mid-life crisis and that is why he is pursuing his relationship with Mary at the expense of his family.”

Shortly after news of the scandal broke, Esther’s older sister Clara appeared to publicly side with her mother, posting a photo of Eve with Ewan cropped out to Twitter, writing: “How frickin gorgeous is my mama?? Strongest, smartest most loving woman I know. My rock.”

She later shared a New Year’s family photo with Ewan noticeably missing from the image, captioning the snap: “My lil family of women thank you @evemcgregor123 we owe it all to you.”

However, she went on to support her dad following his Golden Globes’ win earlier this month, congratulating him on the achievement.
