Iggy Azalea's Tour Rescheduled Due to ''Production Delays,'' Nick Jonas and Tinashe Out as Opening Acts

Rest assured, Azaleans: Iggy Azalea will be going on tour, but you'll have to wait a little longer to see the show.

Early this morning, reports surfaced claiming the 24-year-old rapper's The Great Escape tour has been canceled due to poor ticket sales as well as conflict between the musician and her management team.

Following a string of speculative stories, Iggy's team clarified that the tour has not been canceled--only rescheduled for fall--in addition to shooting down reports alleging there's drama between the "Fancy" rapper and her record label.

Def Jam Recordings issued a statement to E! News saying Iggy's tour has been postponed "due to tour production delays," adding that "to accommodate for creative team availability and tour productions, it was determined that the tour will not be ready this spring."

"It's important to Iggy that she delivers the show she envisaged to share with her fans and that requires more time in development," the statement read.

The announcement from Iggy's record label comes less than a week after the rapper vowed to take a break from social media following a number of nasty Twitter feuds.

Currently, her management runs her pages, and on Tuesday a tweet was posted that elaborated on the tour rescheduling.

In addition to postponing Iggy's North American tour, Def Jam Recordings also announced that Nick Jonas and Tinashe will no longer be her opening acts, although it is unclear who will replace them.

"It's my first arena tour. And I'd like it to not be my last arena tour," Azalea told the February issue of GQ magazine. "I want everything to be the moment, I'm just trying to work on the initial stage design and making a stage that I feel like can engage with many people in an arena that big. So I'm doing something maybe not very traditional, and I'm working on that."
