Nicki Minaj has found herself involved with Iggy Azalea and Nick Young’s relationship. The rapper has been accused of leaking D’Angelo Russell’s viral video that shows the NBA star revealing that he cheated on Iggy with a 19-year-old girl he met at a nightclub.
You may be thinking to yourself, what does Nicki Minaj have to do with Nick Young? A new report claims that the “Super Bass” rapper is responsible for D’Angelo Russel’s video of Nick Young’s cheating confession. The video showed the basketball player admitting that he cheated on Azalea, 25. Though it was Russell who filmed the clip, it was reportedly Minaj who leaked the video on the internet, an alleged source for Famelous revealed.
“Somebody from Nicki Minaj’s camp, a source, got the video, and they sent it in,” a writer for the outlet told ESPN 97.5 FM on the HD Show on March 30. “And they said here, ‘put this out, because Iggy wants to talk mess about Nicki Minaj. Put this out and let her know what her fiancé is doing.'”
So, what would possess Nicki to allegedly leak the video? According to the writer, Iggy allegedly “took a couple of shots at Nicki…on Bravo TV.” The writer is talking about the time that Iggy appeared on Bravo’s Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen. In a game called “Plead the Fifth,” he asked her about Nicki, who slammed the Australian rapper for using a ghost writer during her 2014 BET Awards acceptance speech. Iggy revealed that Nicki uses ghost writers on her songs, as well.
“I have just as many people on my writing credits as she has on hers so… I know I write mine, and if she writes hers, I believe her too. But you can’t look at the credits and be like, ‘Oh look at this massive difference!’ It’s the same number of people on both, so.”
Cohen then asked Azalea whether or not Minaj’s BET acceptance speech was about her lyrics, she simply responded: “Let me know when someone says my name.”
Apparently the video had nothing to do with a feud between “the basket players,” the Famelous source revealed. D’Angelo supposedly placed the video on Snapchat Live before it went viral on Twitter. But “it was just sitting there” until someone in Minaj’s entourage passed the video on to Famelous.
According to Hollywood Life, it seems like Minaj and Azalea’s feud never really settled down. Ever since Minaj famously slammed Azalea at the BET Awards, the “Fancy” rapper brushed it off and said she was “unbothered” by the shade that was thrown her way.
Earlier this week, Iggy Azalea spoke out about her feud with Nicki Minaj once again. During her interview on the Real 92.3, she admitted that she doesn’t have an actual relationship with the “Anaconda” rapper and that she somewhat likes her music.
“I walked past her one time and said, ‘Congratulations.’ She was like, ‘Thank you. I appreciate it.’ It’s on film. You could see it…I don’t know. I think she makes cool music. Good for her. That’s it, really.”

There are some people who believe that it wasn’t Nicki Minaj who leaked the video. It may have been a fan who runs a Nicki Minaj fan page and is not associated with Minaj herself. Check out the tweets for yourself below.

What are your thoughts? Do you think Nicki Minaj actually leaked D’Angelo Russell’s video to get back at Iggy Azalea? If she was trying to get back at her fellow rapper, she wasn’t doing a good job. In fact, Azalea said she would have to thank her for outing Young’s alleged cheating.
