Keonna Green confirmed she was Nick Young’s other woman in an exclusive interview with Us Weekly Wednesday. Even though the Los Angeles Lakers player was engaged to “Fancy” rapper Iggy Azalea, Green said their shared love keeps her from feeling guilty. The couple shares a 3-year-old son, Nick Jr., together.
“[We reconnected romantically] last year, around September…we got caught up in the moment and it just happened,” she said, according to Hollywood Life. “I didn’t feel guilty because I was in love with a man, and I’m pretty sure I’m not the only woman.”
Green wanted the basketball player to be honest with the Australian star. “I would be like, ‘Nick, you cannot be sloppy. You need to be honest [with Iggy].’ He would say, ‘I don’t want to hear it,’” she said. “I don’t know what was going on in his household, but me and Nick have lots of history. It wasn’t a secret on my end.”
After his breakup with Azalea, he also took a step back from his relationship with Green. “I’m giving him his space. On an intimate level, it has stopped,” she said.
But it doesn’t mean they’re done for good. “We haven’t discussed how we’re going to move forward. Right now he needs to focus on [getting] his life in order…but I will definitely give it a chance if he comes back and says, ‘I’m really going to make it work this time.’ Why not?” Green told the magazine.
Adding to the drama, Green is reportedly 4 months pregnant, but she didn’t talk about that during her Us Magazine interview. Azalea, conversely, seemingly confirmed the news with one of her tweets about the split.
“I find it baffling anyone would make the choice to bring a child into the world under these circumstances + want attention and $ for it,” she wrote last week. The message has since been deleted.
