Iggy Azalea called out Playboi Carti after he was arrested for allegedly choking his pregnant girlfriend.

Iggy Azalea says that she "warned" fans about Playboi Carti after the rapper was arrested for allegedly choking his pregnant girlfriend. The two had been in an argument about a paternity test when the woman says Carti grabbed her by her throat and pushed her. Iggy Azalea, who dated Carti from 2018 through 2019, previously claimed that he cheated on her and missed their son's birth.

"Been there. Done that. Warned you," Azalea wrote in her first post. She later added in another: "Imagine having a pregnant girlfriend and pretending they don’t exist until it comes out you like to abuse them too - & rarely visiting your actual son unless is because you’re running from whatever problems ya got going on in Atlanta & the press with your serial abuse of woman."

Iggy Azalea's Posts

Azalea's posts prompted Carti fans to flood into her replies to defend their favorite artist. "HE LIVES IN YOUR HEAD RENT FREE," one user wrote. Another implied Azalea is a hypocrite for working with Tory Lanez in the past. "Talking about abusers like you wasn’t just ready let tory lanez produce ya album before he got put in all orange and cuffs is wild," they argued.

Despite the negative response from Carti fans, many of Azalea's own supporters defended her in the replies as well. "Were his fans waiting on you to post about this???" one said. "Why they all In the comments defending him???? Get a job." Another admitted: "I'm a huge Carti fan but this really shocked me and I'm disappointed in him. You can't defend something like that."

Other users criticized Azalea for being on the platform OnlyFans. The Australian rapper joined the platform, last month, for her ongoing Hotter Than Hell multimedia project. On the site, she posts photos, videos, music, illustrations, and poetry. The project is expected to build up to the release of her untitled fourth studio album, which will release in the summer. Subscriptions to Azalea’s OnlyFans page cost $25 per month. Check out the responses to Azalea's post regarding Playboi Carti below.
