The heavily-pregnant singer previously weighed in on the furor earlier this month by taking to Twitter to voice her support.

And now the 35-year-old reiterated her backing for Ellen after employees came forward about experiencing a "toxic" work environment while on her NBC talk show.

Speaking to the LA Times, pop star Katy defended her decision to speak up for her pal, 62, and insisted "not everyone is going to agree with me".

The singer said: "I started that tweet off not undermining anyone else's experience. 

"I wanted to only speak from my own experience. I have over 100 million people that follow me on Twitter, so not everyone is going to agree with me.

"And I'm not here to make everyone agree with me."

Earlier this month, the songstress took to Twitter and insisted that she's only ever had "positive takeaways" from her interactions with the TV star and her crew.

She began: "I know I can’t speak for anyone else’s experience besides my own but I want to acknowledge that I have only ever had positive takeaways from my time with Ellen & on the @theellenshow.

"I think we all have witnessed the light & continual fight for equality that she has brought to the world through her platform for decades.

"Sending you love & a hug, friend @TheEllenShow."

Katy isn't the only famous face to defend the host as various celebrities have shown support for the famed daytime show host, such as her wife Portia de Rossi, Polo player Nacho Figueras and Scooter Braun.

Unfortunately, other celebs have also ganged up against her and claimed that she can be "cold," such as Lea Thompson, Bachelor’s Corinne Olympios, and actor Brad Garrett.

An internal investigation was launched last month by the show's parent company WarnerMedia after employees came forward about experiencing a “toxic” work environment while on the talk show.

In early July, staffers made bombshell accusations, with some claiming to have been fired because they took medical leave or bereavement days to attend family funerals.

While others are alleging they were instructed by their managers to not speak directly to the 62-year-old comedian if they saw her at the office.

Ellen eventually sent out an apology letter to her staff, but a few spoke out about not accepting the note and not believing she’s truly sorry or didn’t know what was going on on her own show.

Twitter users began trending the #ReplaceEllen hashtag with suggestions of who should take over for the actress, including Tiffany Haddish and Wanda Sykes.

Over the weekend, another former Ellen DeGeneres Show employee came forward claiming there's an an "abusive" environment on set- and she did it while flipping off the camera in a new TikTok video.

Recently, others have started to share their own stories and comments, too.

One waitress said Ellen tried to get her fired for having chipped nails, while Big Brother host Julie Chen appeared to throw “shade” at Ellen by using the host’s line, "Be kind to one another."
