AceShowbiz - Iggy Azalea has opened up about her split from Playboi Carti. When speaking to Emily Ratajkowski on the latter's "High Low with EmRata" podcast, the "Fancy" hitmaker said she decided to call it quits with her baby daddy because she wants to break the cycle of having a "volatile relationship."
Noting that she broke up with Carti three weeks after they welcomed son Onyx, the 32-year-old shared, "I had something happen one day with my son's father and me and it was just like one of those moments where you're just like, I didn't wake up thinking this is what my day would be." She added, "But by the end of the day, I was on a plane to Los Angeles and I never went back. And that was the end of it."
"Don't get me wrong. We had a volatile relationship and you know that, you're not an idiot. You know when something's not working," the Australian artist continued. "I knew it wasn't working, but I also just had a baby, it was COVID. There were a lot of things to navigate for me at that time and I didn't think I'd be leaving when I left."
Iggy claimed her parents also had a "volatile relationship," that's why she didn't want to repeat the cycle. "In that moment that I had on that day, I was like, 'I will never let my son see this because I don't want him to see someone talk to me this way, 'cause I don't want him to ever learn this, I don't want him to be exposed to this,' " she shared.
"I decided in that moment, I have to be more accountable for myself into what I'm doing with my child and even if there are days where I wanna go back to this," the female rapper continued. "I just never would do it. I will never do it. I'm leaving."
Around one week prior, Iggy addressed Carti's arrest for allegedly assaulting his pregnant girlfriend. Taking to Twitter, she wrote, "Imagine having a pregnant girlfriend and pretending they don't exist until it comes out you like to abuse them too & rarely visiting your actual son unless it's because you're running from whatever problems ya got going on in Atlanta and the press with your serial abuse of [women]."
