Iggy Azalea is presently one of the most popular female rappers in the world. Born in Sydney, Australia, she moved to the United States when she was 16 to pursue her music career and gained recognition from her YouTube videos. This was in 2012. Fast forward to recent events, and like any other celebrity, Iggy Azalea has had to deal with a few troubling, highly publicized issues.
And recently, a scandal involving Nick Young, her boyfriend, cropped up following the release of a video on social media that seemed to indicate that Nick Young cheated on her while she was 19. The clip was shot by D’Angelo Russell, Nick Young’s L.A. Lakers teammate. In the video, Russell asks Nick when he cheated on Iggy, stating, “You was 30, she was 19? What about Amber Rose, you ain’t never tried? No, she knows my girl.”
I’ll call a U-Haul and we can have his sh*t outta there in 10 min…just say the words boo!”
However, Azalea replied that she and Nick were very much together, stating, “@drowningforiggy lol, errrrr…. nick and i are good babe.”
Nick and Azalea previously postponed their wedding, which was to happen in March, citing a timing issue. Iggy Azalea stated the following while in an interview with Ryan Seacrest on his KIIS FM radio show.
“I’m planning my wedding, actually moved my wedding ’cause I have to tour so my wedding plans are changing. It was going to happen at the end of the year, but now I have to go to work so we’ll probably have to wait until the end of the next basketball season to do that. So that kind of is a bit sucky, but it’s all right.”
“[He’s] really awesome and great and totally understanding and does not mind. He’s really milking it, he’s really milking the whole thing. So he’s really happy. Any time he wants to, like, go out with the boys, he’s like, ‘This is my last summer being a bachelor!’ so he likes that. He can milk it for longer with me, so he’s excited.”
This is as reported by Us Magazine. However, following the scandal, Iggy Azalea offered that both Nick and Russell were dumb for shooting the video, admitting that guys on the team usually tried to catch each other in off-guard moments such as walking down the hall naked. She cited lack of tangible evidence on his cheating as one of the reasons why she let it go.
This was while on the 94.1 FM. Iggy, however, stated that if she ever caught him cheating or if he got featured again in such a scandalous video, she would cut off his penis. The following were her actual words.
“I’m not cool with it. Like you will have half a penis… One more video just one more thing and you will lose a quarter of your meat.”
