“Fancy” rapper Iggy Azalea is pregnant with fiancé Nick Young’s baby, OK! magazine reported Wednesday. The Los Angeles Lakers player proposed to the award-winning entertainer over the weekend after she canceled her "Great Escape" tour. Now rumors have swirled that the “real reason” she canceled her gig was because she’s with child.
“She wasn’t willing to gamble,” an insider told OK!, according to Hollywood Life. “She’d take Nick over the tour any day.”
“Nick made it very clear that if he and Iggy were going to marry, he wanted her to scale back on work,” the source continued. “Now her friends are buzzing that the real reason for the cancellation and the engagement is that Iggy’s pregnant.”
Azalea, 25, has not responded to the pregnancy gossip and calls to her rep were not answered.
Her most recent tweet was about why she canceled her appearance at Pittsburgh Pride-- following immense criticism from homophobic messages, which are now deleted. "Wondered why my butt felt like it was about to grow legs, flip me off & walk away. then I remembered i played soccer yestrdy w 5 d--- bitches,” one of the offensive messages read.
If the pregnancy rumors are true, it might explain some of her odd behavior. Azalea canceled the Great Escape tour after she initially pushed it back. The Australian rapper, who real name is Amethyst Kelly, said the show was originally pushed back because she was a “psychopath” during an interview with KAMP-FM in Los Angeles in early March.
“It's my first arena tour so it's a big undertaking and I'm doing a lot of the creative direction … we're doing a custom stage and custom build,” she said. “When you're building a stage and things like that, you do it about six months in advance.”
