Iggy Azalea isn't happy with the recent TMZ reports of her tax problems. Earlier today, the gossip site posted an article claiming that the Australian rapper had been hit with a tax lien for more than $391,000 by the IRS for unpaid taxes from 2014. Iggy took to Twitter later to downplay the drama. "It's not a story," she said. While she didn't deny owing the tax bill, she claimed she never attempted to cheat her way out of paying her fair share.

She noted that she had reached a payment plan with the government tax agency two months ago, and is paying it off in installments. "The IRS gave the option to pay them monthly or lump sum. i picked monthly, who wouldnt?" she wrote. "Its like writing 'iggy pays a mortgage on her house every month!' and trying to make it a story. Its not a story. lol," she added.

She might have that situation under control, but the rapper has also been in the spotlight due to a widely publicized cheating scandal by her fiance, Los Angeles Lakers player Nick Young. Young was recorded by teammate D'Angelo Russell admitting to cheating on Iggy. She hasn't exactly been by his side through the scandal, but they appear to still be engaged. She even linked the tax story to the story about Young. 

"Peep the way when one thing happens media scrambles to keep adding on to the storyline, like a soap opera. #IggyNovela," she wrote. "They are trying to make it into something now because they were hoping some more nick mess would happen and now that it hasn't and its getting boring they need 2 create something else... Its super corny, but i know the way it works this time around and its expected."
