Iggy Azalea went into detail about why she left Playboi Cari, who she has a son with. The two broke up in 2020.
“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,” said Iggy on the High Low with EmRata podcast. “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.”
She continued. “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. 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. … 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.’”
