Rapper Iggy Azalea spoke out after she told a paparazzo to get Ebola during a heated argument outside a Los Angeles supermarket Friday. The Australian star, 24, became irritated after the photographer stalked her incessantly and took to her Instagram account to explain her side of the story.
She said the photographer followed her throughout the day and was continually disrespectful. The “Black Widow” star added the alleged harassment cannot be seen from the footage taken of their heated shouting match.
“Something is only ‘the way it is’ for as long as one ALLOWS it to be. What I'm comfortable consenting a paparazzi do doesn't require anyone's opinion but my own. I don't see why that's hard for some to fathom,” she wrote.
“Judge me for spazzing if you like but you only saw the 30sec aftermath which was classy in comparison to what he said to us inside the grocery store where we discovered him lying on the floor after we had repeatedly & politely asked him to leave multiple locations during the course of the day.
“I don't hate paps, just the really aggressive ones ... I only treated him the way he treated me all day. Fair is fair playboys and girls,” Azalea wrote.
Video of the event starts after Azalea and her accomplice leave the store. Her friend apparently spit on the offended pap. When he hyperbolically said he may have contracted Ebola from the saliva, Azalea replied, "I hope you have Ebola. I hope you die. You're a f---ing cunt."
"You're invading my life!" she exclaimed furiously. "You're in the store when I'm trying to buy eggs. Being a musician doesn't give you the right to sneak into a supermarket and take photographs of somebody buying eggs"
