Iggy Azalea couldn’t walk for three weeks after “complications” set in after a “rather mundane operation” she underwent to repair persistent back problems. The rapper described her struggle on Twitter on Nov. 28. “It ended up not being very mundane because I had complications with my recovery and ended up in bed, hooked up to a million machines and in so much pain it’s about 3 days. I actually can’t remember at all,” she said. “I haven’t walked except to use the bathroom (a whole other ordeal lol) for 3 weeks and you’d be shocked to know how weak you can get if you don’t actually move. It goes really fast.” Iggy is now slowly starting to walk, train and recover. “It was very challenging mentally to suddenly be unable to do anything for yourself and not have answers about when you will recover. That was the hardest part but all the doctors are so happy with how fast I am getting better now that I am back on moving and walking,” she shared.
Finally! Nearly two years after Kim Kardashian filed for her marriage to end — and eight months after a judge declared her legally single — the reality TV star and Kanye West to have settled their divorce. According to TMZ, Kim and Kanye will have joint custody with “equal access” to their four children, but the Skims founder will still have the kids most of the time, as she does now. Furthermore, Kanye’s share of monthly child support is set at $200,000, which he will have to remit to Kim every month. Continuing the 50/50 theme of the settlement, Ye will be responsible for half of their children’s security costs and half of their education costs. The settlement comes just weeks before the case was due to go to trial, and there was some doubt that Ye would even participate. In other Kanye news, he praised Nazi leader Adolf Hitler on “Infowars” on Dec. 1. “I like Hitler,” he said. Even host and conspiracy theorist Alex Jones was baffled by Ye’s statement. Later that night, Kanye tweeted an image of a swastika in the Star of David, prompting new Twitter owner Elon Musk to suspend Ye’s account, explaining, “He has again broken our rule against inciting violence.”
