Say what? Nick Young called wedding planning with fiancée Iggy Azalea a “nightmare” in an interview released on Tuesday, January 5.
“Whew, a nightmare in its own,” the Los Angeles Lakers star, 30, told Billboard of planning his nuptials with the “Fancy” rapper, 25. “I think we should go to the courthouse. 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.”
The athlete proposed to the Aussie rapper last June, with a $500,000, 10.43-carat yellow diamond ring. In August the “Black Widow” songstress told the Daily Telegraph that it was anything but love at first sight for the couple.
“I hated him,” she joked to the Australian newspaper. “I thought he was an arsehole.”
The reason? In 2008 Azalea attended a pool party where Young and other NBA stars were hanging out — but a meet between them never happened, she said, because she quickly left.
“I came with all my friends, and I got in a taxi and left early because I felt like these guys are just arsehole basketball players,” she admitted.
In 2013, a friend of Azalea’s introduced her to the Lakers star after he tweeted that he had a crush on her. Eight months after they began dating, the rapper realized that Young had been at the same pool party.
“When I figured it out, I think I was already in love with him,” she said. “So it worked out!”
