In the same interview when he commended her for being a good mother to their son Onyx, Playboi Carti gave the idea that he was “taking care” of his ex-girlfriend, Iggy Azalea didn’t seem too pleased.
The couple called it quits in late 2020 after Iggy said she had caught Carti cheating on her with another woman. But despite their bitter breakup, the exes have managed to remain on good terms for the sake of their two-year-old child.
Carti praised Iggy’s parenting skills in a recent interview with XXL, adding, “Iggy, she’s a terrific mom.” I adore her to the point of obsession. I’m not married. She’s no longer married. However, she is one of the best mothers on the planet. You hear me? That’s what you’ve got to put in the book. I adore her to the point of obsession. She is the best mother in the world[…] I am responsible for a large number of people. I look after my mother. I look after my family. “I look after my baby mom [and] I look after my son.”
Iggy didn’t appear all that amused by Carti’s implication he was taking care of her bills as she later took to Twitter to deny her ex-boyfriend’s claims.
“Take care of me? Lmaooooo,” she tweeted. “Let’s not get carried away now.”
After a fan messaged her on social media, claiming they were surprised after reading that section of the interview, Iggy responded, “I laughed.” Quite a bit.”
However, based on Carti’s comments about Iggy in his XXL interview, it appears that the two are doing much better now that some time has passed since their breakup, when the Australian native took to Twitter to bash her ex for not spending time with Onyx.
The Black Widow chart-topper was particularly furious about the situation because she believed Carti was more occupied with the mistress he was alleged to have cheated with while he was still seeing Iggy.
“I would never decide to do something of my own free will that meant missing a milestone moment with my son & if you do you’re trash,” the 31-year-old declared.
“Imagine not flying out your family on Christmas but you have the girl you cheated on my my entire pregnancy at your album party and magically me and my son can’t come for Christmas any more? TRASH.”
Fans rushed to show their support for Iggy, with one writing, “Facts spend as much time as you can, especially while he’s still a baby.”
“Period!!!!” Iggy responded simply. “You can’t go back in time.”
