Iggy Azalea sex tape star comes forward
The man in an Iggy Azalea sex tape has come forward to clear up reports suggesting the Australian singer was underage when the racy footage was shot. But did they use a condom?
Houston rap star Hefe Wine (Azalea’s ex-boyfriend), has confirmed he is the man in the video, which has been offered to porn firm Vivid Entertainment’s boss Steven Hirsch, and he rejects reports he may have taken advantage of a minor.
After initially insisting on Thursday she had not made any scandalous videos, Azalea’s aides now tell TMZ Azalea had never consented to the video being shot, suggesting she may have been under-18 at the time.
But Wine, whose real name is Maurice Lasel, insists he met the rapper on her 18th birthday, adding she is “100 per cent fully aware” of the fact they shot the sex tape.
Wine has denied offering the footage to Vivid, but reveals his computer was stolen this summer, and thieves may have found the sex clips on that.
Even though Wine denies that he purposefully released the sex tape, he is more than happy to cash in on the benefits of it.
The rapper told the gossip site he was willing to cut a deal with Vivid to have the video released depending on how “persuasive” the porn company was.
Wine said he would sign off on the sex tape for “a couple of million [dollars]”, but that pay day is unlikely to come – Azalea would need to sign off on the deal as well.
Despite an apparent six-figure offer from Hirsch for permission to use the video, Azalea and her lawyers are determined the tape will never see the light of day.
Not only that, but Azalea’s lawyers are now threatening to sue Vivid if it tries to market the sex tape using Azalea’s name.
TMZ reports the letter sent to Vivid by Azalea’s lawyers states that the name “Iggy” is protected by a trademark and can only be used by the rapper herself.
Lawyers’ threats haven’t seemed to bother Vivid, which has apparently restated its desire to release the video.
Despite the sex-tape drama, Wine claims he is still friends with Azalea and says he is planning to release a new single, which features her.
However, sources close to Azalea apparently told TMZ she is feeling betrayed by her ex-boyfriend.
She is now dating Los Angeles Lakers basketball player
