Grand Hustle/Def Jam RecordingsIggy Azalea is on a roll, and she’s not holding back. After taking to Twitter to call out Snoop Dogg for dissing her, and then her record label for allegedly letting magazines publish unapproved images of her, she’s now revealing some of the behind-the-scenes details of her legal battles with her ex-boyfriend, Maurice Williams, aka Hefe Wine.
As previously reported, TMZ broke the story that Williams filed the divorce documents in an attempt to end what he calls a common-law marriage between himself and Iggy. Williams had been battling the rapper over the rights to her early music, which she created during the years the two were in a relationship. According to TMZ, if the judge recognizes the marriage, the music she made during the time they were together becomes their joint property, and proceeds would be split 50/50.
Referring to Williams’ attempts to claim a financial stake in Iggy’s early recordings based on an old contract, Iggy wrote on Twitter, “I’ve settled 2 old contracts privately. Both got a very fair sums & went on about their lives. Real cases are handled in court, not the press. My lawyer agreed to be served ‘divorce’ papers but they want to hire someone to serve me in person, probably so it can be another TMZ story.”
“I also was told yesterday via his lawyer if i do not settle out of court they will go to the press and say i gave him an STD, whats next?,” Iggy added.
Addressing how Williams can possibly claim that they had a common-law marriage, Iggy continues, “Unfortunately to file common law ‘divorce’ all you need is three of your friends to sign a statement swearing the person’s story is true. Actually proving it in court is another story i’m just waiting to get in front of a judge so it can be disproven & obtain a restraining order.”
Iggy then goes on to reveal a sordid, alleged detail about Williams’ personal life.
“The thing that i find awfully sad about this whole story is that the mother of this mans 3 year old child is in court right now…saying he stalked, headbutted and tried to strangle her in january after their 7 year relationship ended,” she tweeted. “Why is her truth being overlooked in favor of sensationalism? It makes me so sad & my heart goes out to [her].”
The rapper concludes by saying she’s confident that this whole matter will be cleared up soon.
“Since this whole ‘common law divorce’ thing has gone public thankfully I’ve had so many women support me and come fwd with info,” she tweeted. “I have such a great collection of witnesses now and I’m really excited to get my day in court and see justice prevail.”
