Nick Young and Iggy Azalea’s relationship took a turn for the worse after a video emerged earlier in the year showing her boyfriend confessing to having cheated on her. The video was apparently leaked by D’Angelo Russell, Nicks teammate on the L.A. Lakers basketball team. This was in March, and Iggy Azalea is said to have been devastated by it. At the time, Iggy stood by Russell and seemingly thanked him for shooting the video. The following was her tweet in regards to this.
“hmmm…i see D’Angelo Russell is trending… I actually liked his film. Thanks bro.”
Just a month after the leak, Iggy Azalea was reported to have forgiven her boyfriend. The following was the statement by an insider who spoke to Hollywood Life about the situation.
“Iggy is giving in to Nick and his apologies for the whole video situation… He has promised her that he will not hang out with D’Angelo outside of NBA responsibilities and he will focus all his attention on making their relationship strong and a priority again… She appreciates everything he is doing to save the relationship and is giving him the benefit of the doubt… Nick and Iggy are getting back to a good place…”
They broke up in June with Iggy citing lack of trust as the biggest problem. The following was her post about it on social media.
“Unfortunately although I love Nick and have tried and tried to rebuild trust in him – It’s become apparent in the last few weeks that I’m unable to… It’s never easy to part ways with the person you planned your entire future with, but futures can be rewritten and as of today mine is a blank page.”
This was as reported by TMZ. Fast forward to the present and both celebrities have moved on, and just a few days ago, Nick Young came to D’Angelo Russell’s defense after fans heckled him at a recent Drake concert, chanting “Hide your phone!” According to a report by TMZ, Nick Young has publicly stated that he and Russell are “good” and that fans should cut him some slack. Presently, Nick Young’s ex-girlfriend Keonna Green is pregnant with his child. During a recent interview with Us Weekly, she stated the following about marrying him.
“Of course. Let me tell you, this is a little deep into the conversation, but I can count how many people I’ve been with on one hand. And Nick was the person I thought was it for me. When I went back that second time, I was thinking, This is it for me.”
She, however also talked about her insecurities while dating the LA Lakers player in the past, saying that when she was younger, she could at times become territorial over her man because of girls always flocking towards him. The following was her actual statement in regard to this.
“We would fight, then get over it. I was kind of like the territorial girlfriend. I was like, ‘Wait a minute, what is he doing, which hallway is he down?’ Things like that. Of course a lot of women were, I guess you could say, flocking towards him.”
Currently, Iggy Azalea is rumored to be dating French Montana. She was recently spotted kissing the “Freaks” singer on a boat while on holiday together. The inclusion of French Montana in Iggy Azalea’s Instagram posts a short while after seemed to confirm reports that the two were seeing each other. When asked by TMZ about how he felt about their relationship, Nick Young stated, “I’m happy. It clears my mind. I wish they [Iggy and Montana] get married”.
