Iggy Azalea - My Ex's Divorce Talk Is Ridiculous He Just Wants Cash ... Iggy Denies Marriage -- 'Husband' Files for Divorce!

Australian rapper Iggy Azalea has hit out at reports her former lover Hefe Wine has filed for a divorce from the star...even though she had no idea they were 'married'.

In a series of Tweets posted on Saturday, the Fancy singer wrote, 'I think we already know, but just to clarify. I'm NOT married. Feel free to check the PUBLIC marriage records.'

The outburst was sparked by Iggy's ex-boyfriend Hefe Wine requesting a 'divorce' from the 24-year-old artist, insisting they 'agreed to be married' after living together in Texas, where state law says a man and woman can be considered legally married if they live together and agree to tie the knot.

But Iggy clearly doesn't think the claim has merit, writing in another Tweet on Saturday, 'The whole cycle is stupid and a waste of my time' and adding the tongue-in-cheek hashtag, 'who gets the silverware'.

A further Tweet, apparently in relation to the same subject, simply read: 'Fan Fiction'.

According to TMZ, the rapper's ex alleges the pair 'agreed to be married, holding themselves out as man and wife', and 'began residing together in the State of Texas on or about September, 2008'.

In a statement released to MailOnline, a representative for Iggy dubs her ex-manager and lover Hefe - real name Maurice Williams -a 'thief, felon and fugitive' due to his persistent legal actions.

'It's disappointing that this thief, felon and fugitive is continuing to use the media to attack Iggy as part of his desperate and despicable attempt to keep himself in the press,' it reads.

Should a judge recognise their marriage as legal, Hefe will be entitled to half of everything Iggy accumulated during that time.

The last few years have seen Iggy's star rise dramatically, with hit after hit after hit, including her latest singles Booty with Jennifer Lopez, and Problem with Ariana Grande.

The pair have recently been in a dispute over songs Iggy penned while they were together, after Iggy moved to stop Hefe releasing music she says she never gave permission for him to distribute.

'Iggy's federal court complaint froze Mr. Williams' ability to trade on her fame by profiting from music he stole from her,' her management said. 'So he has resorted to elevating his predatory relationship with a 17-year-old girl into a sham “marriage” claim unsupported by any certificate or evidence.'

Hefe's filing for legal separation comes just weeks after it was reported Iggy and Hefe, who was also her former manager, are embroiled in a dispute over a stolen sex tape.

Iggy – who has been dating LA Lakers basketball player Nick Young for a year – recently filed a lawsuit against Hefe, accusing him of illegally downloading the entire contents of her personal computer while they were living together in Atlanta, Georgia in 2009.

However, she didn't make any mention of the alleged sex tape in court documents.
The artist has denied the existence of the supposed sex tape, which Hefe has reportedly tried to sell for a seven-figure sum.

Following the allegations surfacing, she told the crowd at her gig in Shepherd's Bush, west London, last month she'd had a 'hell of a week' but thanked her fans for getting her through it.

She denied appearing in a sex tape and later insisted that if it a tape feature her, it was most likely shot while she was under-age and unaware filming was taking place.

According to a reported legal document, the Fancy rapper signed an agreement with Hefe in 2009 which gave him rights to 'manufacture, sell, distribute and advertise 'any' recording embodying visual images'.

TMZ reported that he believes that, in order to distribute the reported sex tape, he just has to put it to music - and he insists that he could also create a website to host the tape.

In July, the star's former manager and boyfriend also announced his intentions to releases the aforementioned EP of songs which would 'shock the world'.

In the lawsuit it is claimed he has taken songs or at the least converted the stolen data to come up with the recording.

While her ex-boyfriend stated he had a release document authorising him to use the material, Iggy said otherwise, alleging her signature is a forgery - and the paper in question had actually been pasted together from a legitimate contract she did sign.

Despite her personal woes, the Problem hit maker was the ultimate professional earlier in the week as she took to the stage at the Vevo CERTIFIED SuperFanFest in Santa Monica, California on Wednesday.

Recently, the rapper threatened to sue porn company Vivid if they attach her name to the raunchy video.

The X-rated footage has been seen by the company's CEO Steve Hirsch, but the Australian rapper's lawyers fired off a warning to the company claiming the name 'Iggy' can only be used by the singer.

In a letter to Vivid, the singer's legal team say the name 'Iggy' is protected by U.S. Trademark, TMZ reports.

Iggy recently tweeted her thoughts on the matter, writing: 'I don't have a sex tape but for the record, anyone who releases or attempts to make profit off someone else's intimate moments against their will is a sex offender.'
