Iggy Azalea addressed GQ magazine nude photo leak in which she had appeared topless. The “Fancy” rapper who had posed for the magazine in 2016 released a statement saying she feels “violated”.
Azalea released a lengthy statement on Instagram and Twitter and soon after deleted her social media accounts.
Iggy Azalea, 28 defended her choice to pose nude,
“I always felt they were very beautiful covers, so I jumped at the opportunity. I hadn’t seen other women’s covers leak so I felt comfortable (on a closed set) to model for such a reputable magazine knowing only the images with my hands covering would be considered for print.”
She also added that she had not consent to the release of the topless photos and was “surprised and angry” that the pictures were not immediately deleted after the GQ Australia December 2016 shoot.
“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.
I fully intended on finding out where the leak originated from and pressing criminal charges in regards to this. It’s important to me that someone actually be held accountable for their actions & the way it impacts my life.”
Nino Munoz, the photographer for GQ who took the photos also took to Instagram saying,
“I’m outraged and saddened to find out that images of mine were stolen and published without my permission. There is currently an investigation underway. Posting these stolen images is illegal and anyone who has done so will be prosecuted.
I empathize with any discomfort that this situation has caused to anyone that is involved.”
