Diplo was recently involved in a public dispute with MIA. MIA initially gave an interview to Rolling Stone for the 10th anniversary of her debut album ‘Arular’, claiming that her relationship with Diplo broke down over his apparent jealousy over her success. Diplo responded by admitting that he was “really jealous and sad, and probably mad when she signed to a major label”, before claiming that he had seen her a day after the interview and that she had apologised.
Later, however, MIA refuted those claims, directing a tweet at Diplo that read: “I didn’t [apologise], I said you owe an apology to my people.” It is thought that MIA is referring to an alleged comment Diplo made about the plight of the Tamil people in Sri Lanka.
