Australian rapper Iggy Azalea, 26, and her fiancé, Nick Young, 31, the shooting guard/small forward of the Los Angeles Lakers have confirmed that they have broken up, about one year after they announced that they were engaged in June, 2015.
Iggy Azalea and Nick Young in happier times.
At the end of March of 2016 teammate and point guard of the LA Lakers, D’Angelo Russell, 20, secretly video taped Nick Young admitting to cheating on his girlfriend Iggy Azalea, also enquiring if he ever hooked up with Amber Rose.
Young admitted to cheating with a 19 year old while he was 30, indicating that it was during his relationship with Azalea. He concludes his video by saying that he has indeed recorded their conversation and then somehow it was leaked.
What’s even more bizarre a turn is that he made an official apology, after being greeted on the court roundly with boos from the fans.
He claimed he had no idea how the video was leaked.
It’s interesting that only an engagement came to an end and that the professional prospects of these players were not considered. It definitely appeared an act of immaturity from the young D’Angelo Russell. Iggy Azalea for her part reacted thoughtfully and the engagement was in time reconsidered and then appropriately ended. Azalea has had her turn at turbulance with heavy criticism coming from fellow rappers like Azealia Banks (Snoop Dogg, Q-Tip) dating back to 2012. Azealia Banks seems to be going for everybody these days with racist rants against Zayn Malik and such. Perhaps she needs to take a deep breath before sounding off on Twitter. Good idea.
In any event, Iggy Azalea cites trust issues with her former fiancé and the coming to an end of their relationship was inevitable.
What do you think, break up to make up?
