Iggy Azalea Sued By American Express For Massive $$$ Amount Of Unpaid Expenses
LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA — Iggy, Sweetie … nooooo. This just isn’t the new classic thing to do.
TMZ states that Azalea “can’t just ‘charge it’ to Amex anymore.” And here’s why.
According to the source, American Express is hounding Iggy Azalea with a new lawsuit, claiming that she has accumulated an enormous unpaid balance.
TMZ obtained documents which show American Express and Iggy in a court dispute over a $300,000 statement!
The source mentions that Iggy’s Amex preset limit is only supposed to be $250,000, according to the documents.
However, as reports TMZ, American Express is playing hardball. They may not be looking for compromises or negotiations. The source says the company wants the full amount, plus its legal fees.
“We know Iggy lives large, she’s a rapper after all, but if what Amex says is true … let’s hope she still has the receipt for the fine art that set her back $12k,” TMZ expresses.
‘WHAT ART,’ RIGHT?
Well, the source previously reported — in January — that Iggy haphazardly dropped $12,000 on a piece of art she saw while walking down a sidewalk in Sydney, Australia.
Yeah. Just like that.
According to TMZ, the artist — Simone Rosenbauer — told them that Iggy was just walking by the shop, M Contemporary gallery, and saw the artwork.
Allegedly, she liked the work so much, she paid for it in-full on the spot.
The source mentions that the artist only made three of artworks in the “Like Ice in the Sunshine II (LA)” series, and Iggy bought the last one for her Los Angeles residence.

According to Christian Post, in April 2016, Azalea received a tax lien from the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) amounting to $391,056.55, which was the music artist’s unpaid taxes from two years prior.
In April, Iggy took to her Twitter and said that the media only blew her situation out of proportion. But she still clarified in a post that she is paying for the balance in monthly installment.
“The IRS gave the option to pay them monthly or lump sum. i picked monthly, who wouldnt?” her post reads.
@FameKillz_ they exaggerate everything. the IRS gave the option to pay them monthly or lump sum. i picked monthly, who wouldnt?
