Iggy Azalea has a problem piling up in front of her, first was her fiancé Lakers’ player Nick Young admitting on cam that he cheated on her and now the United States’ Internal Revenue Service (IRS) took its turn to add more injuries as she was slapped with $391,056.55 tax lien which dates back in 2014.
TMZ reported that the IRS is going after Azalea for the unpaid taxes, in the year which was a huge success for the 25-year old Australian rapper with the debut of her album entitled “The New Classic” that became a hit.
But instead of answering the said tax problem, Azalea took social media and explained that the whole thing was blown out of proportion by the media, but E!Online reported that they managed to obtain a copy from the IRS of Azalea’s tax problem. It stated that Azalea, whose real name is Amethyst Kelly, failed to pay her taxes in 2014 resulting for the IRS to collect them.
In her Twitter account, Azalea explained that she has opted to pay the IRS monthly instead of paying it in a lump sum amount. She argues that the IRS issue has been dragged along with her personal issues with Young.
Azalea stated that the media can be so cruel in twisting information just to have a story to tell. But the truth of the matter is that she still owes the IRS and is just making the media as her smooth alibi.
She stated that last year has been rough for her, but she assures everyone that she will get by the situation she is in now. She believes that it’s best to worry about yourself rather than worrying about others.
“Everybody knows, it’s no secret, I had a bit of a turbulent 2015. I wanted to not breeze over that. I wanted to acknowledge how I felt about it, and I just wanted to say, ‘You know what? I think it’s fine if everybody doesn’t support me because I am a believer in myself.’ My motto is just like the song says: ‘I got me.’ Just have your own back. I think we worry a lot about people liking our pages or how many followers we have, and you just got to worry about your own thing,” Azalea explained.
A video surfaced featuring Young admitting in cam that he cheated on Azalea. The video was allegedly taken by Young’s teammate D’Angelo Russell. Young has admitted to the video and was reported to have been trying his best to patch things with Azalea, though both has recently admitted that they are still a couple.
