Iggy Izalea and Playboi Carti’s Atlanta home burglarized
The thieves stole $366K worth of jewelry.
Iggy Azalea and Playboi Carti’s home was recently burglarized.
TMZ reports that the thieves escaped with $366,000 worth of jewelry from the couple’s rental home in Buckhead, a suburb outside of Atlanta, on Nov. 14. Law enforcement sources told the outlet that officers responded to a residential burglary last Sunday (Nov. 17), and Iggy told the police that the burglars made their way into the couple’s mansion a few days prior.
Source are saying that stolen items included custom rings, chains, bracelets, pendants, watches, earrings, and a diamond engagement ring. The site also notes that the missing jewelry is a mix of gold, diamonds, silver, platinum, pink sapphire, and rose gold.
Iggy reportedly told the police she was home alone in the basement when the burglary took place. The rapper said she heard footsteps in the house, but didn’t think much of it at the time. Iggy said that it was raining and she left the back door unlocked so Carti could get in the house. She also said that she thought the thief had a gun.
Police are said to have security footage from the night of the burglary, which shows the suspect leaving the home with a bag in hand.
Iggy was recently mentioned during T.I.’s interview with The Root. When the Atlanta rapper was asked about his business relationship with his former Grand Hustle signee, he said, “I’m still actively looking for another female rapper who can undo the blunder of Iggy Azalea. That is the tarnish of my legacy as far as [being] a [music] executive is concerned. To me, this is like when Michael Jordan went to play baseball.”
Iggy didn’t let the comment slide. In a series of since-deleted tweets, she said, “Please move on and speak about artist you are (hopefully) actually helping, and stop trying to bring me up for relevance. I don’t bring your a— up, NO ONE is asking about you. I’m tryna be nice because I genuinely have better and more interesting things happening. But seeing a man speaking out of his a—hole and blurting [out] one thing in public and another in private for years is really infuriating. Keep it pushing sweetie & worry about what your next story line is for family hustle.”
