“Should be illegal”: Aussie star makes worrying Britney claim

Australian rapper Iggy Azalea has shared her experiences working with Britney Spears, as the pair teamed up for the 2015 single Pretty Girls.

She made the statements on Twitter, saying that she supported Spears' court claims that her conservatorship is an "abusive" situation.

“It’s basic human decency to at the very least remove a person Britney has identified as abusive from her life. This should be illegal,” she wrote.

“During the time we worked together in 2015, I personally witnessed the same behaviour Britney detailed in regards to her father last week and I just want to back her up and tell the world that: She is not exaggeration [sic] or lying.

“I saw her restricted from even the most bizarre and trivial things: Like how many sodas she was allowed to drink. Why is that even necessary?” Azalea continued.

“Her father conveniently waited until literally moments before our BMAs performance when I was backstage in the dressing room and told me if I did not sign an NDA he would not allow me on stage. The way he went about getting me to sign a contract, sounded similar to the tactics Britney spoke about last week in regards to her Las Vegas show.”

“Britney Spears should not be forced to coexist with that man when she’s made it clear it is negatively impacting her mental health.

‘This is not right at all,’ she concluded.

The public statement comes after Azalea told fans she's trying to support Britney in a way that's "helpful and mindful".

“Britney has said in her own words, she’s embarrassed to even share this with the world,” she wrote on June 26. “If she needed me to speak on her behalf, that message has been delivered to her.

“I’ve done what I’m supposed to do, I’ve reached out. I’m not supposed to be mindlessly telling you all whatever was happening because half of these people are just here for entertainment not to help.”
