Australian rapper Iggy Azalea has accused her ex, Maurice Williams, also known as Jefe Wine, of “terrible abuse,” “unwelcome sexual advances,” and more in court documents obtained by RadarOnline.com. The court documents were reportedly filed in order to prevent Williams from releasing material he allegedly stole from Iggy Azalea’s hard drive.
In the documents, Azalea detailed the moment she moved in with Williams who she says “became aggressive and possessive” when she moved into an apartment he owned.
“I was running out of money and thought I would have to return home to Australia,” Iggy Azalea said in the court documents. “Williams convinced me to stay by promising to furnish a vacant property he owned for me to live in. He told me I should stay with him and sleep on his couch while he arranged to furnish my place. I naively trusted him. Almost immediately after I moved my things into his apartment Williams became aggressive and possessive and made unwelcome sexual advances. He isolated me and told me to stop communicating with my musical collaborators. He intercepted contact information from my new acquaintances, never left me alone with other people, and followed me everywhere. When I told him I wanted to leave, he threatened to ruin my career by calling his supposed music industry contacts and telling them not to work with me.”
According to Azalea, it was shortly after she signed a management agreement with T.I.’s nephew that Williams, who is reportedly a convicted felon and was married with children when he was dating the musician, revealed that he had stolen content from her computer.
“He told me he had stolen the entire contents of my personal computer, including all my music, and uploaded it to a thumb drive,” she said. “He emailed me some of the files he had stolen to prove what he had done. He threatened to find me and ‘drag me back’ to him.”
Azalea, who says she was “fearful for my physical safety” during her ordeal with Williams, explained that the possible release of her unfinished material threatens to harm her reputation with fans.
“Defendants’ threats to released the unfinished material undermine my artistic values and threaten to harm my reputation with my fans, fellow musicians, and business partners,” the Aussie rapper said. “Williams’ efforts to exploit the material he stole from me also are an extremely upsetting extension of the terrible abuse he inflicted on me when I was a teenager.”
