Iggy Azalea Quits Instagram

Iggy Azalea has quit using Instagram after taking issue with fans posting paparazzi shots taken of the rapper in the privacy of her own home.

The Black Widow hitmaker took herself off Twitter.com last month (Feb15) following a series of online disputes, and now she has turned her back on Instagram too after discovering snappers had managed to sneak pictures of her on private property in Los Angeles.

Many Azalea fans reposted the images on social media, prompting the hip-hop star to hit out at the paparazzi for making her feel like a prisoner and express her dismay at devotees for spreading the pictures online.

The rapper shared the shots in question on her own profile on Thursday and explained her disappointment in the accompanying caption, which read: “This is me standing in front of my home, which has a 6ft high blacked out fence around it.

“No one should be made to feel like their own home is a prison because even your garden may be grounds for a photoshoot. I really just want to urge my fans to be aware of what you are enabling when posting these pictures.

“It is illegal to post images of someone in their home or property with a long range camera. I’m asking in the nicest way possible to please think twice about that. You’re (sic) home is supposed to be your place of peace. I just want mine to be that too same as everyone else (sic).”

The issue was enough to prompt Azalea to hand over control of her photo-sharing page to her representatives.

A post uploaded on Friday states: “Until further notice Iggy’s Instagram will be run by management. Iggy is taking a break from social media. She loves all her Azaleans (fans)!!”
