John Oates has broken his silence after being mysteriously sued by his longtime collaborator Daryl Hall.

On his social media channels, Oates, 75, posted a Thanksgiving message Thursday preaching “a more compassionate and supportive world.”

“During this time of communal reflection and connection with loved ones, let’s not forget those experiencing challenges globally,” the Hall & Oates musician wrote. 

“As we come together, consider reaching out to support those in need—whether through local charities or international humanitarian initiatives. May our collective efforts contribute to a more compassionate and supportive world.”

Fans were left stunned when it was revealed that Hall, 77, filed a lawsuit against Oates in Nashville, Tennessee, on Nov. 16. 

Details of the rift are scant because the suit is currently sealed, but documents related to it are labeled “contract/debt.”

Hall & Oates are responsible for hits such as “Rich Girl,” “Maneater” and “You Make My Dreams.”

Sources, however, told TMZ that the duo had been in arbitration to work out “the ground rules of who can sing what as a solo artist, along with money issues, of course.”

One day after the lawsuit was filed, the court issued Hall a temporary restraining order against Oates on Nov. 17. 

And shortly before Oates was set to perform in Colorado and Arizona on Nov. 9 and 10, his concerts were postponed until next year. Hall, meanwhile, performed a gig in Tokyo on Thursday that was said to be full of the group’s greatest hits.

Sources have said that the duo’s rift has to do with who can perform which of their songs in their solo careers.

Some of Hall & Oates’ many classics since they got together in 1970 include “Rich Girl,” “Maneater” and “You Make My Dreams.” Twenty-nine of their 33 singles have charted on Billboard’s Hot 100.
