The celebrities in the tweet include Nicki Minaj, Madonna, Rihanna, G-Eazy, Iggy Azalea, and more. Following this, another fan defended Azalea, saying that the rapper has always supported Spears.
Azalea agreed with her fan's statement and replied, "Right, I said her team wouldn't let her do promo and that they went through my house etc and y'all said I was a hater"
The "Work" rapper later explained her situation, saying that she signed a non-disclosure agreement when she collaborated with Spears in 2015 with "Pretty Girls."
She mentioned that Jamie Spears can use it against her and sue her if ever she speaks out.
Azalea later added that her support is all out for the singer in a way that's "helpful" and "mindful."
"Britney has said in her own words, she's embarrassed to even share this with the world. If she needed me to speak on her behalf, That message has been delivered to her. Other than that - I'm good." she went on.
Azalea concluded her statement by saying that she did what she's supposed to do and reached out; she also mentioned that it's not her obligation to announce what's happening with their communication publicly.
"I actually care & she can use me if she needs my voice. Leave me alone PLEASE." she wrote.

Pretty Girls collaboration
Spears' and Azalea's collaboration happened in 2015 for the song "Pretty Girls." According to E! News, the rapper openly voiced her disappointment when their music didn't hit the charts after not being promoted well by the singer's marketing team.
"its difficult to send a song up the charts without additional promo and tv performances etc, unfortunately I'm just featured.... would have enjoyed performing it alot, i think it got off to a powerful start. but you need content to compete in 2015." she wrote on Twitter. (via the outlet)
They only performed the song once during the 2015 Billboard Music Awards.
Britney Spears has not publicly commented on Iggy Azalea's recent remarks.
