Papa John's "disciplines" employee who gave out Iggy Azalea's private number
Iggy Azalea threatened lawsuit after pizza delivery boy gives personal number out to his family members
Iggy Azalea was left furious after a Papa John's pizza delivery boy allegedly gave her personal number out to his family members.
Azalea took to Twitter to blast the pizza place, accusing them of being "unprofessional".
"I ordered a cheese pizza but instead I got tons of calls and messages like this one".
The messages read "I am your biggest fan" and "please respond".
The pizza delivery company attempted to deal with the incident using humour, replying "please don't bounce us!"
However, the rapper was not impressed with that response, tweeting:
"I don't think data breach is funny. I expect you to contact me to explain how you are going to rectify your breach... of my personal information in a satisfactory and professional way or lawsuit will be filed".

Azalea requested that photographs of the offending delivery boy be sent to her but later tweeted "And the supervisors at @PapaJohns refuse to send pictures of their employess(sic) so you can identify who it is that steals your information".
Speaking to the Hollywood Reporter, a representative for Papa John's Pizza said that the company have "disciplined" the employee involved.
"Papa John's has taken appropriate disciplinary action with regard to the employee involved. We are reaching out directly to Ms. Azalea and hope to resolve this incident and make it right."
In an effort to "reach out" to the star, the Papa John's Twitter account tweeted Azalea asking her to follow them so they could send her a private message. They've obviously learned their lesson about using phone numbers for anything other than ordering pizza.
