Shut it down. Iggy Azalea responded to Tristan Thompson cheating rumors after Khloé Kardashian’s breakup, and she’s not about to involve herself in someone else’s mess.
The “Fancy” rapper took to her Twitter on Sunday, August 22, to deny that she and the Sacramento Kings player are an item. “Very weird fake news making the rounds about me dating a man I’ve literally never met a DAY in my life…. Like…. Expressionless face Y’all are really that bored?!?!” she tweeted. She also called the news “very, very weird behavior.”
In another tweet, Iggy claimed that, not only is she not dating Tristan, but she hasn’t even met him. “Literally have never even been in the same building as that man. I DO NOT KNOW THAT PERSON,” she tweeted. The “Black Widow” songstress also expressed how “annoyed” she was to be associated with the NBA player. “Making up baseless lies about people for fun is lame because I’m a real person with my own private life that gets disrupted by bullshit, so I’m actually annoyed,” she tweeted.
Iggy’s tweets come after Tristan and Khloé—who share 3-year-old daughter True together—split in June after five years of on-again, off-again dating. The breakup two months came after model Sydney Chase claimed that Tristan had cheated on Khloé with her. “I did not know he was in a relationship. He told me he was not in a relationship anymore,” Sydney said on the “No Jumper” podcast in April.
In a TikTok video at the time, Sydney doubled down on the claims that Tristan cheated on Khloé with her. “Yes the Tristan rumors are true,” she wrote on her TikTok. In the video, Sydney claimed that Tristan last contacted her on April 13, the day after his and Khloé’s daughter True’s 3rd birthday. She also told viewers that Tristan messaged her after her claims on the “No Jumper” podcast. “The last time we had contact—besides when he messaged me after finding out about the interview, it was the day after his daughter’s birthday party,” she said.
As fans know, Sydney wasn’t the first time Tristan has been involved in a cheating scandal. In April 2018, while Khloé was pregnant with their daughter True, Tristan was accused of cheating on her with model Lani Blair after photos and videos surfaced of them kissing at a club in New York City. In March 2019, Tristan was involved in a second scandal after he was accused of cheating on Khloé with Kylie Jenner’s former best friend, Jordyn Woods. Woods denied the rumors at the time, claiming that Tristan kissed her (not the other way around) and they didn’t have sex.
A source told E! News in June that the recent cheating rumors was the main reason Khloé ended her relationship with Tristan. “They had been working through the cheating rumors for the last couple of weeks, but Khloe told Tristan he lost all of her trust and the relationship could not be repaired,” the source told the site at the time. “Khloé really tried, but ultimately, felt too betrayed by him. She’s done and says she will not go back.”
Despite the alleged affair, the source confirmed that Khloé and Tristan agreed to have an amicable relationship for the sake of True. “They have been co-parenting and have seen each other several times in the last week with True, but are not romantically together,” the insider said. “Khloé is very levelheaded when it comes to True and the relationship True has with her dad,. so she will undoubtedly make every effort to ensure that Tristan and True continue to have the same amounts of time that he’s always had with her.”
For more about Khloé Kardashian, check out her 2015 memoir, Strong Looks Better Naked. In the New York Times bestseller, Khloé shares her secrets for finding strength in her body, mind and heart and opens up about her own struggles with her weight and self-image in a “culture that worships skinny.” Along with Khloé’s personal story, the book also features practical advice, recipes and personal anecdotes from Khloé’s life to inspire the reader to “create strength, confidence and true beauty in every facet of your life.” As Khloé writes in Strong Looks Better Naked,“There is no such thing as perfect. Nobody attains perfection. But if you keep trying, you grow and evolve, and to me that’s the point: To be a better person today than I was yesterday; to become the best possible version of myself.”
