Iggy Azalea has deleted her Instagram and Twitter accounts while threatening to sue over the leaking of her nude photos.
You might’ve seen Iggy Azalea trending on social media on Monday; it’s because someone leaked some topless photos of the rapper. The pics have been making the rounds online forcing the Australian blonde bombshell to issue a statement. Some of her fans accused her of leaking her own photos because she got some new music coming out, but she is calling the accusations BS and threatening to take legal actions.
Iggy, whose real name is Amethyst Kelly, says she didn’t give anyone permission to release the photos which were taken in 2016 for a GQ cover shoot. “There was no reason for anyone to have kept the outtakes from the shoot,” Azalea wrote. “I’m surprised and angry that they were not immediately deleted after the final images were selected.”
Iggy Azalea also expressed her anger at the leak photos saying that her privacy was violated in an incident that left her feeling embarrassed and emotional. She added that she would be pressing criminal charges and take any other legal actions at her disposal.
“I fully intended on finding out where the leak originated from and pressing criminal charges in regards to this,” the “New Classic” rapper wrote. “It’s important to me that someone actually be held accountable for their actions & the way it impacts my life.
