Iggy Azalea has been one busy mom as she took to rearranging her life into something, she can look in the mirror and be proud of! From announcing she was now single and taking care of her son by herself, but this may have triggered a ripple effect she was not expecting and she has had to come out and clear the air on a few issues.
Iggy Azalea took to Instagram Stories on Monday to make clear that her son Onyx’s father, Playboi Carti, is dedicated amid their split, and involved in his life.
“Nothing I said was intended to make it seem like my sons father isn’t part of his life but I’ve noticed a lot of people took it that way so I wanted to clear the air,’ said the Australian rapper, 30. ‘Onyx is so so loved by his dad & always has had both parents in his life from day one.”
The artist, whose real name is Amethyst Kelly, made the statement a day after she uploaded two photos of herself cradling her adorable infant on Sunday – just hours after confirming she her breakup.
The Mo Bounce artist looked glamorous in both photos, wearing dramatic makeup and stylish black outfits as she smiled gently at the camera.
Until now the couple had led a very quiet life with few even getting a glimpse of their lifestyle the entire time they were together!
Fans were understandably shocked to see Onyx pictured on Iggy’s page, given that the rapper had previously vowed to keep her son’s life private.
‘What I meant last night was that I’m raising my son alone and I’m not in a relationship,’ Iggy wrote in a post on Instagram Stories.
Iggy had hinted at the breakup in cryptic Instagram Story posts just hours earlier.
‘You lost a real 1!!!!’ she wrote, adding: ‘People take loyalty for granted & That’s why I’d rather be alone [vomiting emojis].’
Iggy and Carti, 24, (real name Jordan Terrell Carter) began dating in 2018 and had what many would describe as an on-and-off relationship. The couple briefly broke up in December last year, with Iggy declaring on Instagram that she was ‘single’.
However, they reconciled shortly afterwards.
Carti acknowledged the announcement as we reported initially by posting Iggy’s announcement and noting that he was now free!
In early May, Iggy and Carti had welcomed a son together.
The Sally Walker songstress first revealed she had a son in June via Instagram Stories, following weeks of speculation she’d given birth in secret.
‘I have a son. I kept waiting for the right time to say something, but it feels like the more time passes the more I realize I’m always going to feel anxious to share news that giant with the world,’ she wrote. ‘I want to keep his life private but wanted to make it clear he is not a secret and I love him beyond words,’ Iggy added alongside a blue love-heart emoji.
In July, Iggy revealed her son’s unique name, Onyx, in a short clip shared to Instagram.
The video consisted of the words ‘Amethyst & Onyx’ – Amethyst being Iggy’s legal first name – against a plain black background.
A 10-second audio recording of the baby cooing accompanied the text.
