Iggy Azalea Lawsuit Reveals Claims of Emotional Abuse From Ex-Boyfriend
Three months ago, Iggy Azalea's ex-boyfriend, Hefe Wine (a.k.a. Maurice Williams), threatened to release a sex tape of himself and the Aussie rapper. Now, details of their sordid relationship are revealed in a lawsuit Azalea filed against him.
According to Radar Online, 'The New Classic' creator filed court documents to prevent the tape and music he allegedly stole from being released. She says not only did Williams steal the tunes from an old hard drive she had, he was also emotionally abusive.
In the documents, Azalea said she met the self-proclaimed music industry insider in Texas, after she moved there from Australia trying to get her rap career off the ground. She moved in with Williams, who started to mistreat her in 2007 and 2008, when Iggy was 17 and 18 years old, respectively.
"I was running out of money and thought I would have to return home to Australia," said the 'Fancy' rapper in the court documents.
"Williams convinced me to stay by promising to furnish a vacant property he owned for me to live in... Almost immediately after I moved my things into his apartment Williams became aggressive and possessive and made unwelcome sexual advances. He isolated me and told me to stop communicating with my musical collaborators. He intercepted contact information from my new acquaintances, never left me alone with other people, and followed me everywhere."
In addition, Azalea said the old music that Williams is trying to release was never intended to be shared with the public.
"I want the public to know that my work is authentic and as I intended it to be," she explained. "I do not want the public to be confused by [the] defendant's efforts to pass off the inferior pastiches of a scoundrel as my work."
