"A true queen turn her pain into power!!!" the 35-year-old captioned the Saturday, April 22, TikTok set to "Girl on Fire" by Alicia Keys.

The mom-of-two — who shares 2-year-old Gage and 9-month-old Glenn with her estranged ex — was sitting in the front seat of her car with her short, brightly-colored hair pulled back as she sported a lacy black top underneath a gray sweater.

As OK! previously reported, Amy split from her husband in late February after the father-of-two reportedly became "violent" during an argument.

According to police and 911 dispatch reports, Michael was angry and "throwing things" while both of their young boys were in the home because Amy wanted to "separate" and he disagreed about ending the relationship.

Following the incident, Amy opened a domestic violence case and filed a protective order which was later amended to allow Michael to have "supervised contact" with the kids as long as his mother and sister were around at the time of the visits.

Amy moved out of their Kentucky home and is currently living with her older sister, Tammy. Two weeks after the domestic dispute, Michael officially filed for divorce with the state of Kentucky.
