Maybe those questioning Iggy Azalea’s gangsta cred need not question any further. The Australian-born rapper recently had a run-in with some pesky paparazzo in a supermarket parking lot that brought out a side of her most had never seen.
After doing a little grocery shopping, Azalea was accosted by a particularly persistent pap. According to one source, the pap was spit on after being warned by Azalea of being in her personal space. He then made a remark about now possibly having Ebola or Aids as a result of being spit on and that’s when Azalea really laid into him. “I hope you have Ebola, I hope you die, you’re a f—–g c—,” Azalea told him as she pushed her grocery cart through the parking lot.
Undaunted by Azalea’s verbal barrage, the pap continues until Azalea gets fed up enough to try and ram him with her cart. It’s then that an apparent member of Azalea’s team intervenes and takes the cart from her. Before getting away in her car, Azalea finished giving him a piece of her mind. “[Me] being a musician doesn’t give you the right to sneak into a supermarket and take photographs of somebody buying eggs,” Azalea says. “That’s not a public space, it’s private. You’re inside a store taking pictures of people. It’s not OK. It’s not cute. And next time, I will have people with me that will do something to remove you.”
Pretty gangsta, huh?
