Iggy Azalea is fighting back at her ex, Maurice Williams aka Hefe Wine, with a lawsuit for infringing copyright and unlawfully promoting yet-to-be released music from her early days as a struggling artist.

E! News has obtained the court documents, which claim that Williams used her name, likeness, voice and trademark to promote and distribute her songs without her consent.

Williams has announced that he will release an EP by the "Fancy" singer, entitled Inizio, on Sept. 30. This is the same fellow who previously claimed to have a sex tape featuring the star in his possession as well.

But back to the matter at hand: According to court docs, Azalea says that the music was stolen off of her computer around 2008 and was never completed nor approved by her for commercial use.

She alleges that sometime between April 2008 and January 2009, Williams downloaded the entire contents of her personal computer onto a jump drive without her consent.

The lawsuit then alleges that Williams created a forged recording agreement document, with an altered signature, as well as a fake artist management agreement to make it look as if Azalea had a deal set in place with Wine Enterprises, Inc. She claims that the document is a modified version of an old artist agreement she had signed and that her early music should not be released without her approval.

Azalea is suing for compensatory damages, plus interest at the legal rate (for any profits on the infringements) and statutory damages for each copyright infringement.
