Iggy Azalea, 28, confirmed her long-rumoured relationship with rapper Playboi Carti, 22, last September, only to be ‘trolled’ over their five-year age difference.

She posted a candid photo of Playboi Carti, whose real name is Jordan Terrell Carter, alongside the caption: ‘I miss you’.

Iggy and Playboi Carti went Instagram official in September 2018 by sharing a photo of themselves canoodling on a couch. 

The Australian star’s latest romance came less than two months after she ‘confirmed’ she was dating NFL player DeAndre Hopkins.

However, just a day after going public, both Iggy and DeAndre claimed they were single – leaving fans confused.

Shortly after debuting her romance with Playboi Carti, Iggy faced criticism on social media for the couple’s age gap.

In response to one negative comment, the Mo Bounce rapper wrote: ‘He just turned 23, he’s five years younger than I am.

‘Is that unusual to you? Because almost everyone I know isn’t the exact age as the person they date.

Meanwhile, Iggy (real name Amethyst Kelly) is currently facing a fan backlash over the violent artwork for her new album, In My Defense.

The shocking cover shows Iggy slumped ‘dead’ against a car, with blood splattered against the side of the vehicle, but she claims it’s a ‘feminist statement’.

Iggy tweeted: ‘It’s a statement about women not having the ability to defend themselves under public gaze, not rebirth.’

However, the controversial artwork divided her fans on social media, with some people branding it ‘sickening’.

‘Please don’t hate me but I don’t like it, you look dead,’ one Twitter user wrote.

Another said that it was unnecessary to show Iggy ‘shot dead’ and she could have used less violent imagery to make a statement.

Many others praised the bold album art, however, prompting Iggy to thank them for their support on Twitter.

‘I’m so happy you love the cover as much as I do! I can’t wait till you see how pretty it looks in real life,’ she wrote.
