Rapper T.I. said in an interview this week he's cutting business ties with Iggy Azalea, who went on Twitter to defend herself after being blind-sighted by Tip's remarks.
Turns out... it's not entirely true. T.I. clarified today (Sep. 18) with the Associated Press, saying “It’s definitely not a ‘sever my ties, walk away, I’m upset’ thing,” he said. “It was more so like, OK, you have a lot on your plate right now. I’m going to pull back or wait until you come to a place where you’re ready to come back to the table, so we can start again and make history some more.”
“That’s still my partner,” he added. "So there’s no beef, just business — though it sounds like he’s ready to weather the same storm of controversies the second time around."
“Her life has taken her in a different direction. My life is still as it was before. But Iggy is doing what she feels makes Iggy happy. That’s what she should do. We’re focused on making the next Iggy record and dodge the same adversities we faced last time.”
Azalea found out about T.I.'s statement the same time everyone else did. She Tweeted, "The first ive heard of us having an 'issue' is via a radio interview. Personally, i dont think the radio is the place to talk about your personal issues with someone thats part of your team... He seems to think theres nothing wrong with what he said, everybody else seems to disagree. Im sure tip will publicly clarify what he meant when he feels he has the right platform to do so and other than that, im chillin."
