Iggy Azalea has rebuffed critics who accused her of not speaking up about Britney Spears' abusive conservatorship, claiming she "reached out" to the pop star and had previously spoken publicly about the situation.
The rapper is one of many celebrities to chime in following Spears' bombshell court testimony against her management and her father Jamie Spears, who was made conservator of her financial and personal affairs in 2008.
Spears claimed the conservatorship was "abusive", alleging she had been forced to work like a "slave", was drugged against her will and banned from having an IUD removed that was preventing her from having another child.
Azalea and Spears collaborated on the song 'Pretty Girls' in 2015 and at the time, Azalea made more than one comment that hinted that the 'Toxic' singer was living under severe restrictions.
In response to criticism about how 'Pretty Girls' performed in the charts - not well - Azalea tweeted: "It's difficult to send a song up the charts without additional promo and TV performances, etc. Unfortunately, I'm just featured [on the track]."
The tweet implied that Spears' team had not allowed her to perform the song live or do press appearances following the song's release. Many media outlets interpreted Azalea's comments as the beginning of a feud between her and Spears, which prompted backlash against the rapper.
A year later, Azalea revealed that Spears' team had conducted a search of her home before the pair were given the green light to work together.
"They came and checked my place to make sure I wasn't trying to stash anything weird and, like, get it to her or something... to make sure I wasn't a bad influence," she told Andy Cohen on Watch What Happens Live.
"And I'm not. I passed the test!"
Now, the 'Fancy' hitmaker has responded to accusations of radio silence following Spears' testimony, insisting she's "reached out" to the singer, and is trying to support her in a way that is "helpful and also mindful".
"Britney has said in her own words, she’s embarrassed to even share this with the world.
If she needed me to speak on her behalf, that message has been delivered to her," she tweeted.
"Other than that - I'm good."
Azalea said she was confident she had "done what she was supposed to do", insisting she "actually cares" and that Spears could "use her" if she "needed her voice".
When asked to elaborate further on what she observed about Spears' situation in 2015, Azalea said: "I signed a non-disclosure [agreement] and her father could and probably would sue me."
Spears has petitioned to have her conservatorship ended immediately and without the need for a health evaluation.
