A man alleging he is Iggy Azalea's common-law husband has threatened to reveal the rapper gave him a sexually transmitted disease if she doesn't agree to settle his divorce suit out of court, according to the Fancy hitmaker herself.
Azalea updated fans on her legal battle with former boyfriend Jefe Wine via Twitter.com on Friday (17Oct14), insisting she's keen to take her ex's claims to court.
The chart-topper reveals her lawyer has agreed to "be served 'divorce' papers," but her Texas-based ex's legal team wants to serve her in person "probably so it can be another TMZ story".
Iggy adds, "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 (Wine) an STD, whats next?
"Unfortunately to file common law 'divorce' all you need is three of your friends to sign a statement swearing the persons story is true. Actually proving it in court is another story im just waiting to get infront of a judge so it can be disproven & obtain a restraining order.
"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. Why is her truth being overlooked in favor of sensationalism? It makes me so sad & my heart goes out to Annette Buitrago."
She adds, "Ive avoided texas entirely for the last 5 years. when i do go now i have a police escort & two armed bodyguards, evidently for good reason."
Azalea concluded her Twitter rant by stating, "i have such a great collection of witnesses now and I'm really excited to get my day in court and see justice prevail."
Rapper and producer Jefe Wine, real name Maurice Williams, has asked a judge to recognize his five-year relationship with Azalea as a 'marriage' in a bid to stop her from selling off assets they accumulated as a couple.
She previously told TMZ.com, "That's like somebody I dated for about six months when I was 17, I haven't heard from this person in years."
The rapper filed a lawsuit against him last month (Sep14) in a bid to stop Williams from profiting from early songs he allegedly swiped from her computer.
