‘In My Defense’ diva Iggy Azalea was reportedly in need of a defense attorney due to a $250,000 court judgment brought in the legal battle brought by a rollerblader who said he was hit by her car in 2016.
The plaintiff in the suit, Jeffrey Linett, launched the lawsuit after he claimed he was struck by the vehicle by French Montana‘s brother who was “recklessly and carelessly” driving the car (owned by Azalea).
After our friends at The Blast originally reported the GRAMMY nominee was among those named in the suit, she quickly took to Twitter to dispel the report.

Taking to social media Wednesday (July 22), Azalea said:
Her comments were in direct response to The Blast who reported:
“Back in 2018, a man named Jeffrey Linett sued Iggy and Ayoub Kharbouch, the younger brother to French Montana. Jeffrey claims that on November 9, 2016 he was roller blading in Los Angeles when he was struck by Azalea’s 2015 grey Jeep Wrangler. Jeffrey says French’s brother was behind the wheel, and claims neither person in the car was paying attention when they “recklessly and carelessly” rolled into his path and collided with him.
He writes, ‘Plaintiff contends that the negligence of both Defendants resulted in serious injuries to Plaintiff. Per the board certified surgeon’s reports, Plaintiff is a qualified candidate for ACDF notwithstanding the previous less invasive treatment he has undergone (which has been extensive). Est. Future: $250,000.'”
