"They exaggerate everything," Azalea tweets of reports about her agreement with the IRS
Iggy Azalea is setting the record straight on her situation with the IRS.
On Monday, TMZ reported the 25-year-old rapper faced a tax lien after failing to pay $391,056.55 in income taxes from 2014 – the year her hit “Fancy” shot to No. 1 on Billboard‘s Hot 100, leading to the success of her album The New Classic.
However, in a series of replies to fans’ tweets, Aazalea accused the media of twisting the facts.
“They exaggerate everything. the IRS gave the option to pay them monthly or lump sum. i picked monthly, who wouldnt?” she wrote.
Then the "Team" performer suggested the media is only reporting about her taxes because of her fiancé Nick Young’s cheating scandal. (A leaked video showing Young, 30, allegedly discussing being with other women went viral last week.)
She penned, “But its funny to me because made the deal like 2 months ago but they are trying to make it into something now because…”
Azalea continued in another tweet: “they were hoping some more nick mess would happen and now that it hasnt and its getting boring they need 2 create something else.”
Ultimately, Azalea thinks the reports are “super corny, but i know the way it works this time around and its expected,” she wrote. “im ready for another season of the iggy novela.”
And she attempted to put her deal with the IRS in context, saying, “its like writing ‘iggy pays a mortgage on her house every month!’ and trying to make it a story. its not a story. lol.”
Azalea claimed she isn’t the sweating the news since she’s living her “dream life.”
“*sits in dream house, f—- dream man, wears dream clothing, drives dream car, lives dream life* baaaaiiiii lol,” she wrote.
The Australian hitmaker has put split rumors on the back burner in recent days, wearing her engagement ring to the iHeartRadio Music Awards in Los Angeles on Sunday. She is slated to appear at Miami Beach Gay Pride next weekend.
