Iggy Azalea revealed that she was not ‘allowed’ to finish her latest Saudi Arabia concert due to her ‘pants splitting’ onstage in a tweet uploaded on Friday.
The Australian-born rapper, 33, who recently dropped a raunchy music video for her new single titled Money Come, was slated to headline the e-sports and gaming event called Gamers8 at Boulevard Riyadh City.
She jumped to Twitter to explain the incident that ended her show early, but first sent love to her fans. ‘Saudi Arabia please know to everyone at the show tonight… I LOVE YOU!!!’
She continued, ‘And I’m soooooo sorry I wasn’t allowed to finish my show,’ followed by a teary face emoji.
‘It’s not the promoter who put on the shows fault so show them kindness because they are amazing people and we all wanted to continue but were not allowed by authorities because of my pants splitting,’ the mother of one stated.

One follower jumped to the comment section of the tweet and questioned, ‘They really wouldn’t let you just change pants?’
Iggy replied, ‘I did but I also said “Ladies make some noise, it’s a woman’s world!” And apparently that sent the authorities over the edge. Lol.’
The performer assuredly added, ‘I’m cool I just didn’t want the fans to be sad or angry at the show organizers cause it wasn’t their control or mine it was the police at the side of stage.’
Shortly before the concert, the star had expressed her excitement regarding the upcoming performance.
‘I am delighted to be making my debut performance in Saudi Arabia at Gamers8 and thrilled to be headlining an all-women line up,’ she gushed, per Just Jared.
‘Providing inspiration for women across the globe is hugely important to me, and something I am immensely proud to have done through my music.’
Iggy expressed, ‘Performing live provides incredible opportunities to meet new people and experience new cultures, and I look forward so much to seeing all my fans in Riyadh on Friday for what will be an amazing night.’
Before the wardrobe malfunction, Azalea had the chance to perform her new single, Money Come, for the fans in the audience.

The video was released on YouTube on Thursday and the singer showcased her rap skills following her brief hiatus from the music industry and controversial OnlyFans stint.
In the nearly three-minute clip, Iggy donned an assortment of head-turning outfits, such as a dazzling bejeweled bodysuit.
Back in 2021, after the release of her album, The End Of An Era, Azalea revealed that the LP would be her last and that she would be stepping away from the music industry.
While talking to Billboard at the time, she stated the the album was, ‘probably the last project I’m going to put out musically, so it’s the end of a chapter of my life.’
She further explained, ‘I’ve been putting out projects for the last decade, which is a long time to professionally do anything. Most people move up in their career or job chain slightly, and mine’s been the same for 11 years.’
‘I’m getting to a space where I feel that there’s not much new perspective I can bring to what I’m doing… at least not that I’d be comfortable with the world hearing.’
Earlier this year, the star – who shares son Onyx, three, with ex Playboi Carti – joined OnlyFans and opened up about the decision on Emily Ratajkowski’s High Low podcast in February.

‘I made record labels so much money off my body. I made a lot of people so much money off my body. And I got the smallest cut off my own f***ing body and my own work and my own ideas,’ she stated.
‘I don’t think I have to say sorry about the fact that I want to commodify my own s**t,’ she continued.
‘It’s been commodified and I wasn’t even the main f***ing benefactor of it, so f**k this. And I enjoy it. I’m going to do it anyway,’ Iggy expressed.
Although Azalea had initially claimed that her 2021 album would be her last music project, the star proudly made her comeback two years later with her latest track, Money Come.
