Iggy Azalea said she is 'not on even remotely on good terms' with Playboi Carti

Iggy Azalea said she is 'not on even remotely on good terms' with ex Playboi Carti.

The Fancy hitmaker clapped back at claims that the 25-year-old rapper took 'care' of  her and their two-year-old son Onyx Kelly that he made during a recent interview with XXL magazine.

The blonde beauty also said that they have no 'direct contact' because he treats her like 'sh**' in an array of now-deleted tweets.

Iggy, 31, wrote on Twitter on Wednesday: 'Take care of me? Lmaooooo let's not get carried away now. I laughed. A lot.'

She added, 'You've been mislead. I don't f*** with a man I'm not even remotely on good terms with claiming he pays my bills. I pay my bills. 

'Secondly saying nice things for an interview sounds great but in real life he talks to me like s*** so badly I had to stop all direct contact.'

The Work hitmaker shared that his team members had been hoping for her 'silence' about the interview but wanted to make it clear his words were 'not reflective' of reality.

Iggy said: 'His team has been calling about the interview, hoping for my silence because they know what my reaction would be. I do appreciate being called a great mom but when that's not reflective of what he has to say in real life I'd much rather be left out of being mentioned at all.'


Iggy split from Carti, whose real name is Jordan Terrell Carter, in October 2020. The exes share a son named Onyx.  

Playboi talked about being a 'father' and taking care of Iggy in the XXL interview.

He told the magazine: 'I'm a father. You know what I'm saying? You know how it is having kids. I just got responsibilities. I pay a lot of bills. I take care of a lot of people. I take care of my mom. I take care of my family. I take care of my baby mom [and] I take care of my son. There's a lot of people I take care of. So, it's like, I gotta keep doing it.'

Azalea does not seem to have moved on romantically after splitting from Carti. 

In December she shared her frustrations with the dating scene.

'Straight guys and their seemingly compulsive urge to hurt your spirit simply because you've politely declined an advance first will never ever ever be not comical,' tweeted the single mother of one.

It comes after Iggy admitted she was keen to 'meet someone new'.

The Fancy hitmaker shared her desire to find love on Twitter in November, writing: 'I wanna meet someone new but I also don't want to ever leave my house.'

'It's hard. Anyway. Still not leaving,' she jokingly added.

In 2021 she expressed her support for other single parents ahead of Christmas.

'Sending love to all the single parents this holiday season,' she tweeted. 

'I know it's stressful trying to make s**t perfect and sometimes this time of year comes with sadness about not having that traditional family unit - but you got this and what you bring to the table is enough!' 

The Work rapper has also kept her Twitter followers up to date with her parenting struggles, revealing one of the challenges she recently faced.

In a series of tweets, she shared: 'My son loves popsicles so much he tries to convince me to give him one 3-4 times a day. So now I'm up at 2am… Putting frozen orange juice ones I made into popsicle wrappers I saved - so he thinks they are legit. F***** hell. I've become the "we can make it at home" mom.'
