The rapper is strongly defending her friend and colleague, Britney Spears. This isn't the first time the Australian-born rapper has done this.

What Happened In 2015

Azalea had previously spoken about the mistreatment of Spears by her father and her team while they collaborated back in 2015 for their smash hit Pretty Girls.

Home Search

Azalea revealed Spears' team conducted a thorough research of her home before she was given a pass to work with the Gimme More singer. This revelation came a year after they released Pretty Girls.

The star detailed the event.

“They came and checked my place to make sure I wasn't trying to stash anything weird and, like, get it to her or something ... to make sure I wasn't a bad influence. And I'm not. I passed the test."

Left Out Of The Promo

The Fancy rapper also claimed that Spears' team didn't let her participate in the promotion of the song.

At the time of the project, the singer's life and finances were completely controlled by her father, Jamie Spears and a team of other lawyers in an involuntary conservatorship arrangement she was placed on in 2008.

Britney Was Restricted

Azalea explained that the singer was limited in controlling her business and creativity. This means they didn't get full creative freedom in the production of Pretty Girls.

“I have spoken about this before. I just feel like there was so much we wanted to do with it that we never got to. We never got to do all we wanted to do."

Iggy Wished She Got Out More

She continued that Spears was so limited and wished she had been allowed to be out more back then.

"I love Britney, and she is so much more creative than what people give her credit for, like what she did with Elton [John] was amazing.”

Pledging Support

Azalea added that she would love to be part of more of anything Spears had to do, especially when they are fully her ideas.

Still Friends?

When asked if she and Britney still communicate, the 32-year-old replied affirmatively.

"Yes, I have been in touch," she said. "We talk on Instagram sometimes. She'll message me and I'll message her back and everything."

More Collabs?

She also revealed her readiness for another collab with Spears, should it ever come up.

“Would I be interested? Yes, of course. My collaboration with her is always one of my favorite collaborations.”

Iggy's Statement In 2021

The rapper released a statement in 2021 as part of the #FreeBritney movement to confirm Spears' claims during her battle to end her conservatorship.

She revealed how Jamie restricted her from doing basic things, down to the amount of sodas she had to take.

Jamie Made Iggy Sign An NDA

Azalea described how Jamie insisted she signed an NDA at the BMAs, minutes before she hopped on stage for their performance. This event went down in the dressing room.

She continued in her statement, detailing how Jamie makes Britney sign a series of documents under duress and how the entire process has negatively affected Britney's mental health.

Terminating Her Conservatorship

The Toxic singer first began her journey out of conservatorship by publicly denouncing Jamie and her other conservators before a judge in court.

An Abusive Arrangement

She described the relationship as abusive and dropped a series of claims in June 2021 about her treatment under the arrangement. She revealed the case of a forced IUD installation and being kept under a 24-hour watch in her home.

A court finally terminated the conservatorship in November 2021, and she has since continued to share her experiences throughout the 13-year-long journey.

Life After Conservatorship

She picked up the pieces and married the love of her life, actor Sam Asghari at a private ceremony last year. Spears is still on the journey of returning to self, and fans are worried for her mental well-being, especially after a series of displays she has put up, including a manic episode at a Los Angeles restaurant last month.
