Azealia Banks told Taylor Swift to break up with her new boyfriend Matty Healy or risk catching “mange”.
The 31-year-old rapper took to his Instagram Story Tuesday to encourage the 33-year-old “All Too Well” singer to leave the controversial musician for a “much cooler” – and less problematic – partner.
“Taylor, this man is going to give you scabies,” Banks wrote on a black screen. “It’s not at a strong p-water level that is hard for HELLA to build.”
“Ugh, there are so many cooler People to work with in music,” he continued, suggesting that Swift should shoot James Mercer of The Shins instead.
According to Banks, Mercer is “one of the greatest songwriters ever”, and Healy is “a real slimmer”.
“You can’t let him climb your rich white coochie mountain sister,” he concluded.
The rumor came after Healy, 34, defended his appearance on the “Adam Friedland Show” podcast, where host Adam Friedland made racist and sexist remarks about rapper Ice Spice.

In the episode, Healy laughed when Friedland and co-host Nick Mullen called Ice Spice an “Inuit Spice Girl” and a “chubby Chinese woman” while mocking her Chinese and Hawaiian accents.
The “Somebody Else” singer also encouraged the hosts to make an “impression” of a Japanese Nazi that she found particularly funny.
Despite apologizing earlier, the 1975 frontman told The New Yorker on Monday that the controversial episode “doesn’t actually matter” and that anyone offended by the episode “has been duped.”
“No one sits there at night, slumped in front of a computer, and their boyfriends come up and say, ‘What’s wrong, darling?’ says. and they say, ‘This thing with Matty Healy. “This won’t happen.”
“Either you’re lying about being hurt, or you’re a bit mental because you got hurt,” he continued. “People say, ‘There’s something bad out there, let me get as close to it as possible so he can see how good I am’.”
Banks also reposted a screenshot of his latest words on his social media, describing Healy as a “little, white, stubborn guy” who made “shit indie” music in the mid-2000s.
Matty Healy wrote that no one thought The 1975 made good music and was actually a lame trickster with a bullshit band name that made no sense, and a black girl who knows nothing about herself or her music gets more moves and money than she does,” wrote Matty Healy. .
“Does she know that black women are more envied in today’s industry because there is GREAT WORK in female rap,” she continued. “He’s obviously so weak in the knees, thin-jawed, and drug addicted that it’s easy to miss his grumpy ass.”
Amidst all this drama, Healy also makes headlines with her shocking new crush with Taylor Swift.
The couple first sparked dating rumors after Healy attended Swift’s Eras concert in Nashville earlier this month.
Since then, they’ve been spotted on multiple occasions in New York, including at Casa Cipriani, where the couple was seen kissing.
While neither Swift nor Healy addressed their romance directly, Healy pointed to speculation at The 1975’s concert over the weekend.
