Iggy Azalea is backing up Britney Spears‘ claims that her father, Jamie Spears, is being abusive to her in the confines of the very strict, very publicized conservatorship.
In a lengthy tweet posted this past week, Iggy made her voice loud and clear when it came to supporting Britney, claiming that she witnessed Jamie being abusive towards the singer.
Iggy posted a tweet from her Notes app on Wednesday, recounting her support for Britney.
“During the time we worked together in 2015, I personally witnessed the same behavior Britney detailed in regards to her father last week, and I just want to back her up and tell the world that she is not exaggerating or lying,” Iggy wrote.
She speaks of the time when both she and Britney worked together while collaborating on their single “Pretty Girls,” which was released in 2015.
Iggy validated the claims that Britney shared in a raw and vulnerable testimony last week regarding Jamie’s behavior.
In quite a few paragraphs, Iggy detail what she allegedly witnessed as extremely controlling behavior by Jamie, and in some instances, for no ethical reason. “I saw her restricted from even the most bizarre and trivial things, like how many sodas she was allowed to drink. Why is that even necessary?” she wrote.
Iggy alleges that Jamie forced her to sign an NDA moments before her and Britney’s 2015 Billboard Music Awards performance.
“Her father conveniently waited until literally moments before our BMA performance, when I was backstage in the dressing room,” she recalled. “If I didn’t sign an NDA, he would not allow me onstage.”
“The way he went about getting me to sign sounded similar to the tactics Britney spoke about last week in regards to her Las Vegas show,” she wrote.
She added: “Jamie Spears has a habit of making people sign documents while under duress, it seems, and Britney should not be forced to coexist with that man when she’s made it clear it is negatively impacting her mental health.”
Iggy urged how Britney’s alleged abuse is wrong, and Jamie’s meddling should be illegal.
“It’s basic human decency to at the very least remove a person Britney has identified as abusive from her life. This should be illegal,” she continued.
