Iggy Azalea has vowed to take legal action against a magazine that leaked topless pictures taken for a photoshoot, leaving her 'feeling violated'.
The Syndney-born musician had posed for GQ Australia in 2016 but outtakes from the shoot have now appeared on the internet.
The 28-year-old rapper has promised to press charges after stating she feels "violated" despite Nino Munoz, the photographer, stating he was "outraged" that his pictures were found online.
There is no suggestion GQ were involved in the leak and Munoz has said he "will not rest until justice is served".
The pictures leaked onto the internet last week.
Iggy released a statement on Monday, which she posted on her social media before deleting all of her accounts.
It read: "Today I am a ball of negative emotions. I feel blindsided, embarrassed, violated, angry, sad and a million other things.
"Not solely because I did not consent to this – but also because of the vile way people have reacted."
Azalea, who is famous for Black Widow and Fancy among other songs, said she has been "disturbed" by some of the comments about her body from men, adding: "The outright wicked things people say is overwhelming & makes me feel like throwing up."
Azalea described the experience of being the victim of leaks as like a "nuclear bomb that explodes".
She said: "If you've ever been humiliated before in front of your family & those you care about maybe you can relate to what I'm going through.
"It's like a nuclear bomb that explodes and not only destroys you emotionally, but leaves a path of destruction in your personal life, affecting your relationships & people who matter most too."
And she vowed to press charges against the person who leaked the pictures. She said: "It's important to me that someone actually be held accountable for their actions & the way it impacts my life.
"I don't feel there is any where I can retreat to or that I have a 'happy place' I can wait in until it all blows over.
"Please think of how you might feel if the shoe was yours to wear."
Azaela said she will be keeping her social media accounts deactivated "for now".
She added: "Please be kinder to one another."
