Iggy Azalea To Press Charges After Nude Outtakes Leaked

A blast from the past, the nude outtakes from pop icon Iggy Azalea’s 2016 photoshoot with GQ magazine were leaked online over the Memorial Day weekend.


Suprise & Anger

Azalea expressed surprise and anger at this betrayal of her privacy and documented in a since-deleted statement the expression of these sentiments along with the assertion that she intends to press charges.”I fully intended on finding out where the leak originated from and pressing criminal charges in regards to this,” wrote Azalea. “It’s important to me that someone actually be held accountable for their actions & the way it impacts my life.” Azalea went on to write, “Today I’m a ball of negative emotions. I feel blindsided, embarrassed, violated, angry, sad and a million other things. Not solely because I did not consent to this—but also because of the vile way people have reacted. A lot of the comments I see from men, in particular, taking things even further and sharing their thoughts and fantasies in regards to my body has honestly disturbed me. The outright wicked things people say is overwhelming & makes me feel like throwing up.”


“Destruction In Your Personal Life”

Azalea continued to speak about the destructive effects a violation of privacy such as the releasement of nudes without the subject’s consent can have on the subject’s personal life – in this case, her own. She describes its effects as like those of “a nuclear bomb that explodes and not only destroys you emotionally but leaves a path of destruction in your personal life.” Azalea also verbalized shock that someone who worked on the 2016 photoshoot still had the images as there was “no reason for anyone to have kept the outtakes from the shoot.” This left Azalea, once again, “surprised and angry that they [the photographs] were not immediately deleted after the final images were selected.”

Given the recent and rapid increase of negativity on Azalea’s social media accounts, Azalea has chosen to remove herself from the responses of the public and made the unpopular decision to delete both her Instagram and Twitter accounts. However, Azalea made sure to delay these acts of deletion until after her statement regarding the effects the nude photo leak has had on herself and her personal life saw the light of a day on social media, as well as a statement explaining her then-impending online absence: “I have seen some really vicious s— written in the last 24 hours and it is too much negativity for me to handle. For now, it’s best to keep my accounts deactivated.” Fans of the singer are left to fill the social media void left in Azalea’s virtual absence with tribute accounts honoring the icon.
