Aussie rapper Iggy Azalea claimed she was forced to stop her concert in Saudi Arabia on Friday night (August 25) after she suffered a wardrobe malfunction during her performance.

The Fancy rapper was performing her 2014 track, Goddess, when she squatted down, causing her black pants to tear and forcing her to sit down until a stagehand threw her a towel to cover her leg up, which had been exposed.

Of course, Saudi Arabia is known for having strict laws regarding indecent exposure.

Taking to Instagram after the drama, Iggy posted a slideshow on Instagram on Saturday that showed the moment her pants split.

“Saudi Arabia… Wasssssss…. probably the worst possible place to have my pants split & unfortunately I wasn’t permitted to end the show️.”

“BUT silver lining,” she added. “The promoters were amazingly kind to me & the PEOPLE who came were the absolute most supportive.”

“I love you guys this was not what I intended for the show but it’s a memory I’ll have forever & ultimately showed me how kind, loving & supportive people can be while you’re having such an embarrassing moment.”

Recently, Iggy made headlines after her letter supporting jailed rapper Tory Lanez amid his sentencing for the shooting incident involving fellow artist Megan Thee Stallion was leaked to the public.

Law & Crime senior journalist Meghann Cuniff took to Twitter during a two-hour lunch break at Los Angeles Superior Court, during which she revealed that Azalea was one of more than 70 people who wrote letters in support Lanez.

"Judge Herriford got 70+ letters of support for Tory Lanez, including one from @IggyAzalea. He briefly summarised each one. Two jailers wrote letters, one spoke in court. Lanez's father, Sonstar Peterson, was the last speaker before the break,” she tweeted on August 8.

Later, she went into detail as to what Iggy’s letter of support entailed, saying that she had recommended to Judge David Herriford that the consequences Tory Lanez is facing for shooting Megan Thee Stallion shouldn’t be completely detrimental to the Canadian rap crooner's life.

"That jailer didn't talk in court, but the chaplain did, (I should be able to get the letters, but maybe not today," Meghann Cuniff wrote in the tweet.

Judge Herriford said Iggy Azalea's letter asks him to impose a sentence "that is transformational, not life-destroying.”

Lanez was later sentenced to 10 years in prison.
