Former Mullumbimby girl and chart-topping Australian rapper Iggy Azalea has hit out at claims she made an explicit sex video and photos with her boyfriend.

The claims were made by a US gossip website and an alleged film is being circulated on the internet and social media.

Twenty-four-year-old Azalea, who left Mullumbimby several years ago to seek her fortune as a rap star in the US, has angrily labeled anyone who ‘releases or attempts to make profit off someone else’s intimate moments against their will’ as a ‘sex offender’.

Azalea this morning tweeted the response in which she added that ‘it honestly makes me sick to see the media encourage any other attitude towards those sorts of people, we should want to protect our women’.

A Fairfax Media report says the alleged video has already attracted offers from a porn baron who claims to have watched a copy and offered a six-figure sum to license its sale.

The person in the film is alleged to be her current boyfriend, the LA Lakers basketball star Nick Young.

The porn-film producer claimed to the gossip website that sales of the video would beat other famous celebrity sex videos.

Sex tapes have become ‘a de rigeur celebrity accessory since 2000’ with ‘the most famous examples involved Kardashian, Paris Hilton, Pamela Anderson and wrestler Hulk Hogan,’ says the Fairfax Media  report.

It added ‘the mere rumour of a sex tape could be a very valuable thing indeed for Azalea, keeping her name – and face – in the headlines and high up in Google search results for months and years to come’.

Azalea has sparked widespread interest from not just the northern rivers but around Australia ever since her career in the rap world has bloomed, with several US hit singles to her name already.

Her album The New Classic reached No. 3 in the US charts and No. 2 in Australia.

It’s a long way from her roots in Mullumbimby where she grew up with her family and pet dog Iggy in Azalea Street.

‘Azalea is everywhere in the US at the moment,’ the Fairfax Media report said.

‘The sex tape rumours are attracting attention away from decidedly less glamorous photos of Azalea from high school in Mullumbimby when she was the much more ordinary Amethyst Kelly.’

  1. I sincerely hope this is a ‘test’ to see what hits the site gets. After that, The Echo hopefully will return to reporting on things that are important, like orchid shows and photo comps.

  2. Why not these headlines instead?

    “Echo denies it is trying to benefit from meaningless search engine optimisation trickery. Porn”

    “Iggy’s father denies making sex tape that lead to Iggy”

  3. This girl makes me sick. Has a 9 year old boy crawling all over her and riding a toy pony suggestively while she explicitly sings (about) “Pu$$y” and she has the audacity to accuse others of being sex offenders because they release her sex tapes???? When is this revolting industry going to be held accountable?
