Iggy Azalea & Nick Young called off their engagement after cheating rumors


Shocking absolutely no one, Iggy Azalea and Nick Young have ended their engagement and broken up. Iggy and Nick always seemed to be having issues and drama, but the drama kicked up a notch in March when Nick’s teammate “accidentally” leaked a video of Nick bragging about sleeping with other women. Iggy stayed with Nick after that, and made a big public thing about her wedding plans and how she was still wearing her engagement ring. And now it’s over.

Iggy Azalea and Nick Young have officially called it quits. Nearly three months after Young was involved in an alleged cheating scandal – and after the couple had seemingly moved past the drama – the Australian rapper announced that she has ended things with her Lakers player fiancé.

“Unfortunately although I love Nick and have tried to rebuild my trust in him – It’s become apparent in the last few weeks I am unable to,” Azalea, 26, wrote on Instagram Sunday. “I genuinely wish Nick the best. It’s never easy to part ways with the person you planned you’re [sic] entire future with, but futures can be rewritten and as of today mine is a blank page.”

In March, a video apparently showing Young bragging about sleeping with other women while dating Azalea was accidentally leaked online by his teammate D’Angelo Russell. Young seemingly confirmed the validity of the video in a post-game press conference, saying “what happened is what happened.”

Shortly after the video went viral, Azalea said there was “nothing really” going on between her and Young and that she wasn’t “tryna marry a cheater.” Less than a week later, she walked the red carpet at the iHeartRadio Music Awards while wearing her yellow diamond engagement ring. Azalea later laughed off the drama, joking that Young would be left with “half a penis” if the cheating rumors turned out to be true. (She also explained that she was going to wait to see “some real evidence” before blaming Young.)

I’m including Iggy’s Instagram announcement below. What do you think? I mean, it’s obvious that Nick was cheating on her. He was probably cheating on her throughout their relationship. And either she didn’t want to believe it or she didn’t want to publicly acknowledge it. So she waited and planned for the wedding and suddenly one day she just realized that she was about to tie herself to a cheating douchebag? Either that or it was a lot worse behind the scenes. Who knows? I hope Iggy moves on with little drama, but knowing her… it will probably be months of back-and-forth bulls—t online.

    I’m so surprised.

  2. QQ says:

    I figured this was gonna play out exactly this way, she is so mired in stupid stuff that I assumed both of them would let it die down and the quietly announce a postponement then separation

  3. jeanpierre says:

    All those drama words while Nick Young tweeted “single.” I’m probably going to hell but I can’t stop laughing.

  4. Lynnie says:

    You know if Iggy was actually a decent person I would hope that maybe she could find another avenue to profit from, because music isn’t going to be it, and it’s so sad to be so young and already so washed up…

    But she’s not. 😂😂😂😂

    Now she can focus on her “career” 🙄🙄🙄

  6. Steph says:

    I am curious, can anyone answer why people cheat on their partners/S.O.’s?

    IMO, I’m always baffled at how people rather have their cake and eat it too, rather than just being single and doing whatever they want.

    • Lynnie says:

      I’m certainly no expert, but I think these people want the stability and perks being coupled up has. When you’re single, yeah you can go out and have all the casual flings you want, but at the same time no one is going to want to settle down unless there is some degree of monogamy involved.

      I’m sure there’s all sort of emotional stunting, poor impulse control/immediate gratification, unhappiness in there too, but I’m not a psychologist.

    • Norman Bates' Mother says:

      I believe that those people are not ready to commit to a real relationship and want to have sex with whomever they wish, but they also want to have someone with whom they can live and do all the couple stuff like go to the movies, shop, meet the family, talk about their problems, cuddle etc. They wouldn’t hurt anyone if they were single, but they’d also be alone outside of their bedrooms, so they’d rather use and betray someone who loves them. Iggy probably thought she was the love of his life but in his mind she was more like a college roommate with benefits.

      Cause they are selfish, they don’t care about hurting people, they just want to have their cake and eat it too. They want the best of both worlds, without committing to either being single or monogamous. And people let them keep on doing it and when their partner forgives or stay with them anyway, it shows the selfish person they can do what they want and get away with it. They want their woman to be monogamous, because they don’t want to sleep with a woman who’s sleeping with someone else, but the same rules don’t apply to them. They want to be the top dog in the relationship, there is no way they would tolerate another man invading their turf. But he is going to do what he wants, cause he’s the top dog. I mean, think about it. If you could sleep with anyone you wanted and come home to a nice husband and a hot meal and the kids taken care of why not? If you don’t have morals, why not? They don’t think about the consequences or care about anyone’s feelings. It’s all about them them them.

    why do i think some chick is going to pop up pregnant with his child or maybe already did.

    I hope she got some strange, cause he sure was.
