Iggy Azalea has gotten a judge on Monday to issue a preliminary injunction that prevents some of her songs from being released by music companies working with ex-boyfriend Maurice Williams (aka rapper Hefe Wine).

In September, Azalea filed the lawsuit upon word of unreleased music and a purported sex tape. The Australian pop star admitted to having a relationship with Williams when she was a 17-year-old in Houston, Texas. The man followed Azalea (born Amethyst Kelly) to Atlanta, and according to the complaint, “downloaded the entire contents of Azalea’s personal computer,” including unreleased master recordings.

Later, after Azalea became famous for “Fancy” and “Problem” — she was the first artist since The Beatles to have #1 and #2 concurrently on the Billboard Hot 100 chart — a joint venture among Primco, ESMG, Top Sail and Wine Enterprises, Inc. claimed that they had “secured the rights” to release an EP by Azalea titled Inizio.

Iggy Azalea appears to respond to Kendrick Lamar’s comments about her in Billboard last week.

After spending much of 2014 as one of the most divisive artists in Hip Hop, Iggy Azalea has already continued to make headlines for her place in the culture early in the New Year.

Speaking with Billboard for a new cover story, Kendrick Lamar recently publicly encouraged the Australian rapper to keep “doing her thing” and received backlash from the likes of Azealia Banks and others for separate comments he made about the state of the Black community in the context of the killing of unarmed teen Michael Brown in Ferguson last year.

“She’s doing her thing,” Lamar said of Iggy Azalea. “Let her. People have to go through trials and tribulations to get where they at. Do your thing, continue to rock it, because obviously God wants you here.”

On Friday, the same day a preview of Kendrick’s cover story was released, Azalea alluded to the comments vaguely in her own Tweets.

Iggy Azalea doesn’t care if you don’t think she’s the realest.

In a new interview with Vanity Fair, the rapper opens up about her post-“Fancy” life (“I have to be very selective when I grocery shop”) and debunks sex tape rumors (“I would remember if I had a sex tape”). But most interestingly, she also responds to the kind of criticism she’s received from artists such as Azealia Banks: Iggy Azalea doesn’t acknowledge the way white privilege lets her selectively borrow from black culture and reap all the benefits (or, at least, Grammy nominations).

“Well, they don’t say that stuff about Macklemore,” Azalea tells Vanity Fair. “So, yes, I think it has 100,000 percent to do with the fact that I have a vagina.” She’s not entirely right: Macklemore does deal with similar criticism. But Azalea also frequently faces debates about her authenticity, ghostwriting rumors and charges of being “fake” — an accusation that’s more often lobbed at female artists than male ones. (Rapping in an exaggerated southern drawl that’s quite different from her relatively soft-spoken Australian voice, however, certainly does little to discourage those complaints.)

“People have said I’m not real rap or real hip-hop,” Azalea says, “but I don’t care if people think I’m pop or rap. Everyone interprets music differently.”
