Star threatened after bitter online feud

The trouble between singers Iggy Azalea and Azealia Bankns started off as a slanging match on Twitter, but it has escalated into something even more dramatic.

Azealia has made no secret of her dislike for Iggy in the past, publicly saying that she feels her success is undeserved and that she is insulting people of colour by acting like a black person but not caring about racism. 

The two have had numerous lengthy arguments on Twitter, but now it seems someone else has joined in the drama.

An anonymous user with the Twitter handle @TheAnonMessage began tweeting at Iggy over the weekend, threatening to release footage of her sex tape if she did not apologise to Azealia within 48 hours. 

The account, which has since been suspended, posted a number of threatening and angry tweets to the singer, calling her a "trashy b**ch" among other things.

One particularly worrying tweet read, "MESSAGE: @IGGYAZALEA, you have exactly 48 hours from now to release a statement apologizing to @AzealiaBanks and the protesters in NYC… You are guilty of misappropriating black culture, insulting peaceful protesters, and making light of Eric Garner's death. @IGGYAZALEA"

A later tweet read, "There's an X rated tape of you, we bet you'd certainly don't want public, are we right? @IGGYAZALEA….and this is nothing. Comply or else." 

Iggy has yet to make any public response to the tweets, but seeing as she has previously said that the media speculation surrounding the existence of an alleged sex tape "makes [her] sick," we can't imagine she was too happy with this latest development.
