Thoughts on this hairline crack kitchen ceiling?

It's probably twenty inches or so long, and it's maybe a few mm thicker than a hair. It's in the kitchen.. bathroom/shower above it.

It’s probably from the house settling over time. A little light compound touch up and a coat of paint on the ceiling and you’ll never see a trace.

[@397348,Adogslife] Thing is, two years ago the tub got a little while in it and water leaked down through the kitchen ceiling, below the tub. It was just that once, the hole patched over. Would that crack have anything to do with it?

[@562099,Coralmist] it really just looks like your basic everyday hairline crack.

There is/was dome kind of seepage from the rooms above.
Is it iron reinforced concrete? Then the iron rod(s) have got rusted.
Fooking difficult to hunt down the exact place & repair.I am suffering one such - my upper floor crook caused the damage, but can't make that crook pay.
Will let you know if I find a way.

A couple questions. What type of construction is the house? Wood? Any idea what thickness the upstairs flooring is? Most likely it's just where the sheetrock joined or is your ceiling plaster?

[@391032,Tastyfrzz] Not sure thickness of floor upstairs. See my reply to Adogslife if possible.
Stop messing about upstairs in the shower 🚿 😂
Sounds like some intense kind of water sports 😯. Lol [@562099,Coralmist]

[@1215375,Junebugjones] Please see my reply to Adogslife as well..there was some leakage in the past near that not sure if the crack is from that or not
I did read that. The crack definitely did originate from that leak. This caused the gypsum to expand and then contract leaving the crack. If the water issue has been taken care of you should be alight to patch. [@562099,Coralmist]
