“Fancy” rapper Iggy Azalea took to Instagram Sunday to reveal she broke up with her fiancé, Los Angeles Lakers player Nick Young, but the NBA star was the one who apparently did the dumping. Young left the Australian rapper for ex-girlfriend Keonna Green. She is the mother of his son, Nick Jr., and is currently pregnant with his baby, the blog Media Take Out wrote Tuesday.
Young had ditched Keonna to get with Azalea, but it was only to bring him closer to the limelight, according to the report. “Nick loves Keonna and always did. But [Iggy] was really famous, and Nick loves the attention,” an insider told MTO. “He ended up leaving [Keonna] for [Iggy] because he wanted to be more famous.”
Young's heart wasn’t in his relationship with Azalea because his was still focused on Green. “[Nick] and Keonna are trying to make it work,” the anonymous person revealed. “As far as Iggy goes, f--- her, she don’t matter.”
Now, Young and Green are living together in Los Angeles and expecting baby No. 2. “Nick and Keonna are meant to be together, he knows that, and she knows that. S--- even Iggy knows that,” the source said.
Azalea took to Twitter Tuesday to clear up some rumors after furniture was pictured outside the home she once shared with Young. While reports claimed the rapper kicked her ex out of the house, it was actually the other way around. “I never had anyone's car towed nor did I kick nick out of 'my' house,” she tweeted.“The home belongs to nick, I am the one moving. Thanks.”
The star cited trust as the reason for her relationship ending. “Unfortunately although I love Nick and have tried and tried to rebuild my trust in him — It’s become apparent in the last few weeks I am unable to,” she wrote. Young was caught in a cheating scandal after video of him admitting an affair to Lakers teammate D’Angelo Russell leaked in March.
