Iggy Azalea and Nick Young got engaged one year ago
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.)
However, fans began to speculate that all was not well with the couple when Azalea posted photos from an apparently Young-less birthday vacation with her girlfriends last week. In the multiple bikini photos she shared on Instagram, the rapper was not wearing her engagement ring.
Young confirmed the breakup news himself on Twitter, writing simply, “Single.”
