Iggy Azalea Throws Shade at T.I. on Twitter
Rapper Iggy Azalea claims that T.I. is gossiping about her in order to boost his clout, as the two continue to trade blows in public.
In late September, the 29-year-old Australian blonde beauty slammed her former mentor – whom she ended her association with in 2015 – on Twitter, calling the 39-year-old actor a “huge misogynist” and her “biggest blunder”.
The “Fancy” hitmaker wrote several now-deleted tweets, aimed at T.I. for boasting that he discovered her, and that she dirtied his influence as a music executive.
One of her tweets said: “Please move on and speak about artists you are [hopefully] actually helping, and stop trying to bring me up for relevance. I don’t bring your a** up, NO ONE is asking about you [sic].”
In an interview on 10 October, T.I. commented on his former protege: “As far as I’m concerned, I feel like when [Iggy Azalea] found out white people liked her and she didn’t really need black people to like her anymore, she switched up, started acting different, made moves I wasn’t proud of, that kind of placed my reputation in the line of fire.”
