Iggy Azalea Confronts Paparazzo at the Supermarket [VIDEO]
Azalea was caught on tape yelling at a cameraman who apparently was photographing the rapper and her friend while they were food shopping At Von's grocery store in Los Angeles. The viral clip shows the man arguing with Azalea and her companion outside in the parking lot and the situation got really heated.
During the confrontation, the 'Fancy' rapper admitted to spitting on the photog and then called the man a "c---." When the cameraman pointed out that spitting on someone is an assault and asked if they had "AIDS or Ebola," Azalea responded, “I hope you have Ebola. I hope you die." Ouch!
The paparazzo tried -- unsuccessfully -- to explain to the rapper that being photographed in public places comes with the territory of being a famous celebrity. He then suggested that Azalea should move to Nebraska if she doesn't want to see the paparazzi.
Azalea contends that just because she's a musician doesn't mean that people have the right to follow her in the store like a creep.
It's a safe bet that Azalea won't shop for groceries at the store again. However, she did promise to return there with bodyguards to pummeled the photographer.
Azalea went on Instagram today (Oct. 11) to explained why she viciously berated the shutterbug outside of the supermarket. The 'Black Widow' MC insists that she doesn't hate the paparazzi just the aggressive ones who invade her privacy. She wrote:
Something is only "the way it is" for as long as one ALLOWS it to be. What I'm comfortable consenting a paparazzi do doesn't require anyone's opinion but my own. I don't see why that's hard for some to fathom. Judge me for spazzing if you like but you only saw the 30sec aftermath which was classy in comparison to what he said to us inside the grocery store where we discovered him lying on the floor after we had repeatedly & politely asked him to leave multiple locations during the course of the day. I don't hate paps, just the really aggressive ones... I only treated him the way he treated me all day. Fair is fair playboys and girls. peace out."
