Iggy Azalea Denies Sex Tape Claim; Calls for Better Privacy Laws

Thursday morning, TMZ reported that Vivid Entertainment was looking to strike a multi-million dollar deal to distribute a sex tape that allegedly features pop-rap superstar Iggy Azalea.

In the same report, TMZ said that Azalea’s camp denied she was the individual featured on the recording.

“Iggy’s camp says [Vivid boss Steve] Hirsch’s eyes are playing tricks on him. They tell us the I-G-G-Y is not the chick on vid doing the dirty … and they’re ready to sue over the alleged footage,” wrote TMZ.

Azalea posted an additional denial on her Twitter account Thursday.

“Obviously I’ve seen the news feed today and i just want to say…I dont have a sex tape,” wrote Azalea.

Not content to simply deny her involvement in the recording, Azalea also ripped those who attempt to profit from the unauthorized distribution of others’ intimate material.

“Anyone who releases or attempts to make profit off someone else’s intimate moments against their will is a sex offender,” declared Azalea. “It honestly makes me sick to see the media encourage any other attitude towards those sorts of people, we should want to protect our women.

“I really hope that america will follow Europe and their laws to better protect peoples privacy and fundamental rights,” added the musician.

Not simply relevant in the context of her alleged sex tape, Azalea’s words also resonate against the backdrop of the recent “Fappening” celebrity photo leak.
