Preparing for a walk down the aisle with Iggy Azalea isn’t so fancy, according to her fiancé Nick Young.

In a new interview, the Los Angeles Lakers basketball star, 30, tells Billboard his nuptials to the rapper, 25, are creating conflict in their household.

“Whew, a nightmare in its own,” Young says of planning the fête with Azalea, to whom he proposed with a stunning diamond ring in June. “I think we should go to the courthouse.”

After letting out some laughs, Young adds, “It’s tough, it takes a lot of time and compromising and arguing but eventually the women always win. I think [wedding days] should just be women’s day.”

Azalea’s man has been on another rapper’s mind lately, too – Kanye West mentions Young (also known as Swaggy P) in new single "Facts,". The tune largely focuses on West’s successful Yeezy shoe line with Adidas and his problems with previous collaborator Nike. “I done told y’all, all I needed was the infrastructure,” West raps. “Now we hottest in the streets, it ain’t no discussion. James Harden, Swaggy P runnin’ up the budget.”

Young touched on the name drop, telling Billboard, “Aw man, I was on my way home, trying to get dressed for my New Year’s event and a couple of my teammates called and texted me [about the song] and I didn’t know what they was talkin’ about. I was like, ‘Y’all playin’, y’all lyin’, man.’ They sent me the SoundCloud [link] and I was like, ‘Aw, it’s over. I’m the man now.'”

Now, as the publication notes, the Lakers are all about West’s jam. “Yeah, you know, we got our little Beats Pill, put that Bluetooth on, play ‘Facts’ and we all get hyped up,” he explains. “It’s an international anthem. It’s for the world. We play it when we comin’ out. I’ma make sure the DJ play it on the layup line.”
