The Australian rapper started by calling it “basic human decency to at the very least remove a person Britney has identified as abusive from her life,” noting that Britney’s claims “should be illegal.”
“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 & tell the world that: She is not exaggerating or lying.”
She continued, “I saw her restricted from even the most bizarre & trivial things: like how many sodas she was allowed to drink. Why is that even Necessary?”
This isn’t the primary time Azalea has spoken up concerning the pair’s lunch date previous to filming the “Pretty Girls” music video. In 2016, she appeared on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen, telling Cohen that Britney’s staff searched her dwelling earlier than Britney arrived. “They came and checked my place to make sure I wasn’t trying to stash anything weird and, like, get it to her or something…to make sure I wasn’t a bad influence. And I’m not. I passed the test!” Azalea advised Cohen. “I mean, I don’t have like a crack den.”
Azalea made one other accusation towards Jamie — this time with reference to moments earlier than the pair took the stage on the Billboard Music Awards. She mentioned, “[Britney’s] father conveniently waited until literally moments before our BMAs performance when I was backstage in the dressing room & told me if I did not sign an NDA he would not allow me on stage.”
“The way he went about getting me to sign a contract, sounded similar to the tactics Britney spoke about last week in regards to her Las Vegas show,” she continued. “Jamie Spears has a habit of making people sign documents while under Duress it seems, and Britney Spears should not be forced to co-exist with that man when she’s made it clear it is negatively impacting her mental health. This is not right at all.”
Like all of the allegations made towards Jamie and members of Britney’s staff, Azalea’s are equally as terrifying and disheartening. Here’s hoping Britney is granted the liberty, peace, and security she’s deserved all alongside, and shortly.
