Inside Iggy Azalea And Playboi Carti's Relationship Today

Iggy Azalea's rocky relationship and subsequent breakup with Playboi Carti had a profound impact on her life, especially since it produced a child. Azalea and Carti kept the pregnancy from the public, with Azalea catching everyone by surprise when she announced the birth of baby Onyx in June 2020, Today reported at the time. She shared the news with her fans via her Instagram Stories, adding an explanation as to why she opted to keep the pregnancy and his birth under wraps. "I have a son. I kept waiting for the right time to say something but it feels like [the] more time passes the more I realize I'm always going to feel anxious to share news that giant with the world," the Australian rapper wrote. "I want to keep his life private but wanted to make it clear he is not a secret & I love him beyond words," she concluded. 

Four months later, on October 25, 2020, Azalea gave her Instagram fans a first glimpse of her bundle of joy by sharing two photos of him. A few days earlier, she had hinted at the breakup with Carti, once again on her stories, with a cryptic message. "You lost a real 1," she wrote (via People), adding, "People take loyalty for granted & that's why I'd rather be alone." Shortly after, Azalea clarified that she was "raising my son alone & I'm not in a relationship," Billboard noted.

Iggy Azalea maintains a 'cordial' relationship with Playboi Carti

A few days after her cryptic Instagram messages, Iggy Azalea clarified she didn't mean Playboi Carti wasn't involved in Onyx's life, Billboard reported. "Nothing I said was intended to make it seem like my son's father isn't part of his life but I've noticed a lot of people took it that way, so I wanted to clear the air. Onyx is so so loved by his dad & has always had both parents in his life from day 1," she said, indicating that the two musicians were co-parenting their child.

Azalea publicly slammed Carti on December 25 for spending the holiday celebrating the release of "Whole Lotta Red" instead of with his Onyx, per Billboard. "Too bad you got an album out but can't even come to Christmas with your own son," she wrote in the now-deleted tweet.

After the rather public events surrounding the end of her two-year relationship with Carti, Azalea opted to take a more private approach in the following months. Citing a source, Hollywood Life reported in April 2021 that she is "cordial" to Carti for their son's sake. "She does her best to keep things cordial with Carti because it's about Onyx and not her. But she really doesn't talk about that situation at all. She's very guarded when it comes to that. Ever since she went off on social media about him last Christmas, she's made every effort to stay very private about it all."
