Iggy Azalea Confirms Nick Young Split Via Instagram, Touts New ‘Blank Page’
In an unfortunate case of life imitating art, Iggy Azalea has confirmed she is, indeed, the only one playing on her team.
The New Classic rapper, who got engaged to basketball star Nick Young a year ago, called off the wedding and confirmed the couple's split in an Instagram post last night (June 19). Azalea and Young had been dating since 2013, but a cheating scandal that emerged in March knocked them off balance.
"...although I love Nick and have tried and tried to rebuild my trust in him, it's become apparent in the past few weeks I am unable to," Azalea wrote in the social media confession, to overwhelming support from followers.
"Good for you...to put yourself first," one fan wrote. "Hope your new 'book of life' will be full of happy stories. Wish you strength dealing with the breaking up emotions."
Young popped the question in surprise fashion at his carnival-themed birthday party in June 2015. In March of this year, ESPN published footage that found Young chatting with Los Angeles Lakers teammate about apparent infidelities (you can watch it here).
"You were 30 and she was 19?” Russell asks in one segment of the clip.
"I didn’t know though,” Young answers.
