Iggy Azalea burned all of Nick Young’s clothes after catching him cheating

The 2018 HeatRadio Music Awards arrivals

I think all of us, even if we don’t want to admit it, sometimes did (or do) things inspired by pop culture. back in the 90s, during the height of my Twin Peaks infatuation, I drew on a faux beauty mark by my eye so I could look like Sherilyn Fenn. And let’s not get into my ill-advised bindi phase (thanks, Gwen Stefani). I guess Iggy Azalea was watching Waiting to Exhale on repeat back when she and Nick Young broke up, because she went all Angela Bassett on his butt.

The 27-year-old Australian rapper and her 32-year-old basketball playing beau called off their engagement and went their separate ways back in June of 2016. Nick outed himself as unfaithful in a video “accidentally” leaked by his Golden State Warrior teammate D’Angelo Russell back in March of 2016. Later, Iggy discovered security camera footage of Nick with other women in their home while she was away. A few months later, Nick and Keonna Green gave birth to a baby girl. How he missed out on “boyfriend of the year” honors, I’ll never know. Sheesh.

Well, Iggy isn’t a believer in the adage that revenge is a dish best served cold, and exacted payback on her philandering fiancé by setting his clothes on fire. On Sunday’s episode of Watch What Happens Live, when asked what the most expensive item of Nick’s was lost in the fire, she recounted the entire saga to host Andy Cohen.

Iggy confessed, “I burned it all, darling. I burned a lot, and I threw stuff in the pool too. I started off with water and it seemed like that didn’t work.” This outburst wasn’t the first for the rapper, as she told Andy that “I used to break stuff in our house, and I realized that I was breaking my own sh-t. I was like, ‘That’s stupid,’ and he didn’t care.” She then had an epiphany, adding, “So I was like, ‘I’m going to find some sh-t you care about and I’m going to start destroying that,’ which was his clothes.”

Lighting up the outdoor gas pit, Iggy began burning wardrobe items, giving Nick text updates of what was going up in flames. Iggy said she started with “the cheap s—t,” telling him “I’m burning your things, and so I don’t know where you’re at—probably with some girl. So I hope you get home quickly, because I’m moving on. We’re progressing on the spectrum from cheap to expensive.” When it came to the designer pieces, Iggy ran into a bit of a problem, as she explained “expensive things don’t burn well” although she gave it the old college try and tried to set items from “every designer you could think of” ablaze. Oh, and apparently, if you own anything from Forever 21, you might want to stay away from open flames.

Prior to confessing in the church of Bravo, Iggy shared her revenge tips in a tweet from last December that she later deleted. She said, “If you’re gonna burn someone[‘s] stuff, start with the cheap sh-t and end with the expensive sh-t. Cheap sh-t[‘s] more flammable anyway; and then if you take him back mid fight, there[s] less to complain about. You’re welcome. I’m a pro.”

I’m all about taking the high road, but I guess when you’re young and heartbroken you make stupid decisions. Remember when Lisa Lopes from TLC burned up her cheating man’s clothes and destroyed his home in the process?

    Stupid and immature. My stepdaughter and her boyfriend broke up so she poured bleach on his clothes. I’ve thrown things before when I’m mad but not for a young time. Iggy is young but at some point, you have to grow up. Ime, the best revenge is acting like you don’t care.

  2. Char says:

    I would feel like burning him after that, so the clothes were almost next to nothing.

  3. CidyKitty says:

    I forgot she existed.

  4. Luca76 says:

    You know that is abusive and no cheating doesn’t make it ok. If someone cheats break up with them.

    • ElleC says:

      I agree completely – this is abuse and shouldn’t be minimized. I used to be a person who thought disrespect justified disrespect until I realized I was just continuing the cycle of hurt and harm instead of removing myself from toxic situations. Learning that lashing out won’t give me what I’m really after – respect, love, understanding – has been the most powerful transformation in my life.

    • Bridget says:

      No, it’s not. It’s just someone behaving childishly. Abuse is characterized by a continuing cycle of power and control over another person.

      • Missy says:

        No, it doesn’t have to be a continuing cycle. Abuse can happen in a solitary incident. Regardless, Iggy admitted to destroying things out of revenge prior to this incident.

      • Krill says:

        Its criminal destruction at the very least. Cheating wont land you in jail but this will.

      • Luca76 says:

        Yes especially since she admitted intent. Literally threatening to destroy his things if he didn’t come home. It’s called corrective control and is a form of mental abuse.

    • mela says:

      hahaaha i think it’s funny. he knocked up another woman, lied and deceived.

      So she burned his clothes. Thats karma.

      Maybe because I have been physically abused, I just don’t equate burning the clothes of a lying cheating fiancee who knocked up another woman as ABUSE.

      It’s drama but i disagree that it is abuse.

      • Pandy says:

        I agree. I think it’s funny too. And deserved. Might be childish, might be dramatic, but it’s freaking FUNNY!!! When my spouse cheated on me I did briefly consider throwing bleach on all of his stuff. It felt good to consider it, but ultimately, I didn’t do it. Wonder how I would have felt if I didn’t take the damn high road lolll.

    • otaku fairy says:

      Getting fire involved in a relationship conflict seems automatically abusive. I agree, she just should have left him.

  5. Babs says:

    She should burn her own wardrobe. That’s all those outfits deserve.

  6. Beth says:

    If I found out I was being cheated on, my heart would be burning with anger,but I wouldn’t do something as dangerous as burning clothes and belongings

  7. MrsPanda says:

    Totally understandable but sad and attention seeking. It showed she wanted him back, giving constant updates of the fire and starting with the cheap stuff. It was an attempt to lure him back, as you see from her comment ”if you take him back mid-fight”. Even after all the cheating it was probably him that broke it off, not her. I think if you’re at the point you’re burning his stuff, taking him back should not be an option in your mind! and if you burn his stuff, do it properly and don’t give him a chance to intercept 😉 I don’t think it’s abusive, however it is immature and stupid.

  8. Sequinedheart says:

    She’s such a phony. She has lived in the states as long as I have and her horrible pretend american accent that comes out sometimes grinds my aussie gears! I find her boring, immature and talentless.
    And yeah, admitting to arson will land your arse in jail – such a twat.

  9. No Doubtful says:

    As angry or hurt as someone has made me, I have never destroyed their property. Thought about it maybe, but I would never do it. She needs to grow up.

    • mela says:

      HAHA Was dating a serious loser one time and he and I got in a fight and he went running back to his baby mamas house that night.

      I didn’t destroy his things……

      He came back a week later wanting to work it out and move back in with me, he said where is all my stuff?

      I sold ALL his furniture on craigslist for $10. 🙂

  10. mela says:

    HAHAHA that was funny. what a pig he is.

    did he end up getting back together with Keona, the baby mama, or are they still “friends”?

  11. Sam says:

    The video was accidentally posted by his teammate when they were both on the LA Lakers, not Golden State. Nick Young was just traded to Golden State this season, and Russell now plays for the Nets.

  12. Bread and Circuses says:

    As the writer Joe Hill put it, the best revenge is putting the person in your rear-view mirror as you drive off to bigger and better things.

    Also, this is another person’s property and you can be arrested/sued for damaging it. A judge is not going to care at all that you were really mad and he was a real scum-dog.
