Is J.Lo bad luck?

Iggy Azalea, 24, told Entertainment Tonight that she blamed Jennifer Lopez for a nasty fall off stage she experienced at a pre-VMAs show on August 22. According to the Aussie rapper, Lopez, 45, predicted the accident at a show in Chicago a while back.

"We did a show together... and my microphone wasn't switched on. And I said, 'At least I didn't fall over,'" she recalled. "And she said, 'It'll happen to you one day.'"

The moment finally came on the Friday before the 2014 Video Music Awards, when the rapper performed a pre-show with Lopez in the audience. "I invited her to watch that show, and I fell off the stage. I was like, 'You're bad luck!'"

The rapper emerged from the incident with her pride (and sense of humor!) completely unscatched. She even posted a video of the nasty fall on Instagram: "Sorry but it would be a crime not to share this with you all, I know I laughed. #StillFinishedTheSongTho #KeptOnRapping #TheShowMustGoOn"

It seems Azalea doesn't hold a grudge against Lopez, either. In fact, the two recently sat down with for an episode of MTV's House of Style and recently collaborated on a remix of Lopez's "Booty." 

"We have high-fashion booty in style," Azalea joked on House of Style.
