Iggy Azalea is moving Down Under to mend her broken heart

2016-07-04 22:00

Los Angeles - Iggy Azalea is planning to move back to Australia.

The Fancy hitmaker - who jetted back home to film a few episodes of The X Factor in Sydney last week - is hoping to spend a month Down Under later this year catching up with her family following her shock split from fiancé Nick Young.

Speaking to Australia's Daily Telegraph newspaper, she explained: "I hope it will be a bit of a summer getaway and I can work too. It will be summer so hopefully I can get out and chill and show everybody that is coming with me the good food and the beach and play some tennis and ride horses."

The 26-year-old rapper fled her home in Mullumbimby near Byron Bay in New South Wales when she was 16 years old in order to carve out a career stateside.

She has resided there ever since but is looking forward to moving back home as she reconnects with her old friends and mends her broken heart away from the limelight.

She said: "Spending a month in Australia is the longest I will have spent there in literally like 10 years."

Iggy's decision to return to her native country comes just days after she revealed she had dumped Nick after she caught him having sex with another woman on CCTV last month.

Taking to her Twitter account last week, the blonde beauty tweeted: "I broke up with Nick because I found out he had brought other women into our home while I was away and caught them on the security footage ... People in this world really are fucked up. (sic)"

The former couple - who were living together in Tarzana, California - began dating in 2014 and got engaged last year.
