"I feel the hatred and pettiness i see online at all times is at making me become an angry person and I cannot be that," she notified her followers.

"To become nasty because of the way I feel iam treated would be a disservice to my fans and I promise i will try to keep smiling.

"But I also want to let my fans know iam taking some time away from social media. I need to be happy and it is too negative and draining.

"My management will tweet/run my accounts from today onwards with updates etc unless any message is signed -IA. Love you all. Peace out!

Iggy had been taking a break from her busy schedule to spend time with her boyfriend Nick Young in Hawaii.

The pair were snapped looking loved up while they enjoyed the sunshine, with Iggy wearing a red bikini. Some of the photos showed up some dimples on her butt and thighs, with people quick to comment. It was this that sparked her decision to leave the Twittersphere.

"Just got back from a great vacation, came online and saw apparently it's shocking and unheard of to be a woman and have cellulite. Lol." she wrote.

"I just want to have peace and relaxation time without a perve with long distance lense hiding out taking pictures, everyone deserves peace. (sic)"
