Say ma and pa split (6)


I believe the answer is:


'say ma' is the definition.
(I know that ma is a type of female parent)

'pa split' is the wordplay.
'split' becomes 'rent' (past tense of 'rend' meaning to split).

'and' is the link.

(Other definitions for parent that I've seen before include "governor, for example" , "Pa or Ma" , "person responsible for children" , "Raise" , "E.g. father" .)

I've seen this clue in The Sun.
