Iggy Azalea shows no sympathy for his ex Playboi Carti after he was arrested for allegedly choking his pregnant girlfriend.
Following news of the arrest, Australian rapper Azalea posted a cryptic tweet that some saw as a thinly veiled dig at her ex and the father of her son, Onyx.
The two rappers dated in 2019 but Azalea gave birth to their child in June 2020. Months later, she announced that she would be raising her son on her own, independent of Carti.
On Tuesday, TMZ reported that Carti was arrested on a felony charge after he was accused of choking a woman described as his pregnant girlfriend. The incident allegedly took place in December 2022 when the woman was 14 weeks pregnant. Carti’s attorney, Brian Steel, released a statement saying his client had been “falsely accused”. He also predicted that “this case will be closed without any prosecution or litigation.”
After news of Carti’s arrest broke, Azalea tweeted a thinly veiled search, without explicitly naming anyone.
“Imagine having a pregnant girlfriend and pretend they don’t exist until it comes out that you enjoy abusing them too – and rarely visit your real son unless it’s because you’re running from all the trouble you have in Atlanta and the press with your serial abuse of a woman,” Azalea wrote on Twitter on Tuesday.
“Anyway. I’m having a truly amazing day! Real Karmas! Treat the people you love well! Happy Valentine’s Day,” she added minutes later in a follow-up tweet.
In December 2020, Azalea spoke out against Carti, saying he was away for the birth of their child, refused to sign their son’s birth certificate, and had a “side chick” during their relationship.
A number of people named Playboi Carti in the comments section of Azalea’s latest tweets.
“I’m a huge Carti fan but this really shocked me and I’m disappointed in him. You can’t defend something like this,” @Ulrich175 replied to Azalea. Meanwhile, @firck8 called on people to “Cancel playboi Carti. Zero tolerance.”
While some favored Azalea, others seemed to take the opposite view. “Shh he doesn’t,” @naghetti wrote, while @famousmoxy said “he lives rentless in your head.”
A number of people online have mentioned the recent rumors that Azalea was dating rapper Tory Lanez in October 2022. He was accused at the time of shooting Megan Thee Stallion, and in December he was charged three felony counts.
Despite rumors and videos of them dancing together, it has never been confirmed that Azalea and Lanez dated.
Newsweek contacted Azalea for further comment.
