Iggy Azalea Age

Iggy Azalea was born on 7th June 1990 in Sydney. As of 2019, Iggy is 29 years old. She grew up in Mullumbimby, New South Wales. Her father, Brendan Kelly, was a painter and comic artist from Europe and Australia, while her mother, Tanya, cleaned holiday homes and hotels. Azalea lived in a house surrounded by 5 hectares, 12 acres of land, which her father built  from mud-bricks by hand.

Iggy says she has some Aboriginal, Indigenous Australian ancestry: “My family came to Australia on the First Fleet. My family’s been in that country for a long time, over 100 years. If your family’s lived in Australia for a long time, everyone has a little bit of Aborigine blood. I know my family does because we have an eye condition that only Aboriginal people have.”

Iggy has also said that her father made her look at art as a teenager, which has always influenced her life and work. She began rapping at age 14. Before embarking on a solo career, Iggy formed a group with two other girls from her neighbourhood:

“I was like, I could be the rapper. This could be like TLC. I’ll be Left Eye.” Iggy decided to disband the group because the other girls weren’t taking it seriously: “I take everything I do seriously. I’m too competitive.”Iggy says.

Azalea dropped out of high school in pursuit of her desire to move to America. She worked and saved the money she earned with her mother by cleaning hotel rooms and vacation homes. She claims to hate school, which made her miserable apart from art class. She also said she had no friends and her home-made outfits were teased. In 2006, before turning 16, Azalea traveled to the United States.

“I was drawn to America because I felt like an outsider in my own country, I was in love with hip hop, and America is the birthplace of that, so I figured the closer I was to the music, the happier I’d be. I was right.” Iggy recalled, “My mum was crying, saying, ‘Just be safe.’ I was thinking, ‘I’m going by myself. I’m fucking crazy!’.”

She received her General Educational Development (GED) after her arrival in the US and spent six years residing in the country on a visa waiver. She would return to Australia every three months to renew it. Azalea worked illegally in the US until she received a five-year O visa in February 2013.

Iggy Azalea Tattoos

Tattoos are a big part of music culture, as artists often have many of them to further express themselves. Iggy Azalea is one of many rappers with ink, each tattoo symbolises something different. Like most artists, she has a story and most of her story is also portrayed in her tattoos.

Each tattoo means something or representing a part of her past that she has chosen to embrace or let go. Some of Iggy Azalea’s tattoos have either been covered up or crossed out. Nonetheless, it is still apart of her story as an individual.

“Colour me free” Tattoo

Iggy has “Colour me Free” tattooed on her foot. She never confirmed the meaning of the tattoo, but What’s Good Online speculated that she got it to represent “freedom and a fresh start.” It symbolised her experience when moving to the U.S. from Australia for her career. She knew that it was time to chase her dreams and it all started with leaving home.

Blindfolded Horse

Iggy loves horses. She told People in 2016 that riding horses has been therapeutic for her. “When you’re going over jumps or riding a horse, there’s nothing else that your brain can think about. You don’t have the time to think about those other things – you just have to think about staying on the horse,” Azalea says. It helps to be able to mentally have the space where you can go for an hour or two and really switch your brain off.” Thus she decided to have a tattoo of blindfolded horse.

Iggy Azalea Husband

So was Iggy Azalea  married? It was said  she was getting divorced . Funny enough we didn’t know she was married and neither did she.Divorce papers were  obtained filed in Texas by Hefe Wine also known as Maurice Williams seeking to end what appeared to be a common-law marriage.

Wine said he and Iggy “agreed to be married, holding themselves out as man and wife and began residing together in the State of Texas on or about September, 2008.” A man and a woman who live together for any length of time in Texas are considered legally married if they agree to be married and hold themselves out to others as husband and wife.

Iggy’s rep told TMZ … she NEVER held herself out as Hefe’s wife and never agreed to be married.Hefe therefore asked the judge to prohibit Iggy from selling various assets they accumulated during the marriage. Iggy and Hefe have been at each other’s necks over the rights to music she wrote while they were together — music worth millions and millions of bucks.

If the judge  had recognized the marriage, all of her music during the union becomes community property 50/50.Iggy’s rep said this was all a desperate attempt at a money grab.As for Iggy ,she was in a year-long relationship with Lakers star Nick Young then.Iggy’s relationship with NBA star Nick Young was even more serious. Iggy revealed that they were an item in early 2014 after dating on a lowkey for several months.

The couple was featured on GQ magazine’s March 2014 issue. Iggy and Young reported that they were engaged on June 1, 2015. But things took a sad turn for the couple after Nick Young bragged online about being unfaithful to Iggy after a video surfaced. Iggy announced to the public on June 19, 2016, just 3 weeks after the engagement, that she had broken up with Nick Young.

 In 2011 Iggy had a fair share of high-profile relationship with the American rapper and A$ AP Rocky record producer. During an interview with Vibe Magazine in January 2012, Iggy confirmed their relationship. Rocky’s debut mixtape Live tattoos matched the two lovebirds equally. Love. A$ AP.However, as they separated in mid-2012, their relationship did not make it to the one-year mark. Iggy Azalea revealed she had her own tattoo’s “A$ AP” portion crossed out.

Black Widow’ is a song from Iggy Azalea’s debut studio album, The New Classic (2014).
