Iggy Azalea's mentor T.I. says they are still working together.

The 34-year-old rapper hasn't completely severed ties with the 'Fancy' hitmaker despite previously suggesting they had parted ways, but admits he recently decided to ''pull back'' because she has a lot on her plate.

Asked about recent comments he made about cutting ties with the Australian beauty during a radio interview, he said: ''That's still my partner. Her life has taken her in a different direction. My life is still as it was before. But Iggy is doing what she feels makes Iggy happy. That's what she should do. We're focused on making the next Iggy record and dodging the same adversities we faced last time.

''It's definitely not a 'sever my ties, walk away, I'm upset' thing. It was more so like, 'Okay, you have a lot on your plate right now. I'm going to pull back or wait until you come to a place where you're ready to come back to the table, so we can start again and make history some more.' ''

His comments come shortly after Iggy, 25, blasted him on Twitter for telling New York City radio station HOT 97 yesterday (17.09.15) that they had taken ''a bit of a rest stop'' due to her constant feuds with other rappers on Twitter.

The blonde beauty lashed out at him on the social media platform afterwards, writing: ''Heres the deal, I am still signed to @tip and do business with him. The first ive heard of us having an 'issue' is via a radio interview.

''Personally, i dont think the radio is the place to talk about your personal issues with someone thats part of your team... (sic)''
