The Australian rapper Iggy Azalea, whose career has enjoyed a rapid rise but also growing tumult, on Tuesday postponed her whole North American tour.

Azalea, who was due to open the tour of major US and Canadian arenas next month, will instead start the tour on September 18, her promoters said.

“The tour getting pushed back only means that it’ll be way more amazing than it would’ve been in April. Good things take time,” Azalea’s management wrote on Twitter.

Azalea’s label, Def Jam Recordings, said it was decided “the tour will not be ready this spring” and that the later dates better accommodated the schedules of the rapper’s team.

The decision comes nearly a month after Azalea announced that she was taking a break from social media after increasingly testy exchanges.

She notably entered a running feud on Twitter with fellow rapper Azealia Banks who accused the white Australian of exploitation for performing in an African American accent.

Azalea had won a wide fan base, including millions of social media followers, with songs including “Fancy.” Her album “The New Classic” was up for Best Rap Album at the Grammys.

But she came home empty-handed last month from the Grammys — the same day she berated a pizza deliverer on social media for allegedly giving out her phone number.
