Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice? Iggy Azalea announced via Instagram on Sunday, June 19, that she is pulling the plug on her relationship with fiancé Nick Young after he allegedly tested her trust once more.
“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 in a post to the social media network. “I genuinely wish Nick the best. It’s never easy to part ways with the person you planned your entire future with, but futures can be rewritten and as of today mine is a blank page.”
The athlete confirmed the breakup a bit later with one word: “Single.”
Azalea, 26, and Young, 31, have made headlines in recent months after the NBA star allegedly admitted to cheating on the Australian rapper in a leaked video.
“You was 30, she was 19?” his Lakers teammate D’Angelo Russell says in the clip. (The athlete later admitted to and apologized for taping the conversation, though it is still unclear how the clip was leaked.) “What about Amber Rose, you ain’t never tried?”
“No, she knows my girl,” Young replies in the video.
Azalea later took to Twitter to thank Russell for asking her beau about his romantic conquests.
Despite the sudden uproar surrounding Young’s alleged infidelity, however, the “Team” rapper decided to stay with her fiancé, reassuring fans that they were “good.”
“Hey, that’s part of being a basketball player. There’s always something,” she told 92.3 AMP Radio’s Shoboy in the Morning in March. “When people come out and say things, and have their entire [press plan] where they do 700 interviews about the one time you catcalled me out of a car, supposedly. To me, that takes a bit of the potential authenticity of the story away. I believe my man, and Nick is a supernice guy. This is not the kind of thing he would do.”
The pair got engaged last June but had to postpone their wedding due to logistical circumstances — namely, their schedules.
“I’m planning my wedding; actually, moved my wedding ‘cause I have to tour, so my wedding plans are changing,” she told Ryan Seacrest in a radio interview on Friday, March 18. “It was going to happen at the end of the year, but now I have to go to work, so we’ll probably have to wait until the end of the next basketball season to do that. So that kind of is a bit sucky, but it’s all right.”
Azalea performed in Buffalo, New York, on Sunday.
