Iggy Azalea feels "embarrassed and violated" after nude photographs of her were leaked online.
The 28-year-old rapper has made a statement after topless photographs of her, which were taken during a shoot for GQ Australia in 2016, but never meant for publication, appeared on the internet over the weekend - motivating her to delete her social media accounts.
The 'Fancy' hitmaker insists that although she's "angry and surprised" the images have surfaced it's the "vicious" and "vile" reactions to the photos including lurid male "fantasies" that led to her deactivating all her social media accounts.
In a statement posted to her Twitter account before she deactivated it, she wrote: "I am a ball of negative emotions. I feel blindsided, embarrassed, violated, angry and sad. Not only because I did not consent to this - but also because of the vile way people reacted."
She continued: "A lot of the comments I see, from men in particular, sharing their thoughts and fantasies in regards to my body has honestly disturbed me. The outright wicked things people say is overwhelming and makes me feel like throwing up.
