Personal foul? Iggy Azalea’s fiancé, Nick Young, allegedly admitted to cheating in a leaked video that was secretly taped by his Lakers teammate D’Angelo Russell. And while Azalea, reacting to the clip, says she’s thankful to Russell, his NBA teammates are furious.
The video in question shows Russell lounging at home and chatting on the phone with “Swaggy P” Young. The rookie point guard asks Young about his various sexcapades in the clip, but how the video was leaked still remains unknown. “You was 30, she was 19?” Russell says at one point. “What about Amber Rose, you ain’t never tried?”
It appears as if Young did not know he was being recorded in the video, but Azalea took to Twitter on Wednesday, March 30, to thank Russell for having the convo with her allegedly philandering fiancé.
hmmm i see D Angelo Russell is trending… I actually liked his film. Thanks bro.

Azalea, 25, and Young got engaged last June, and she addressed rumors about Young’s alleged infidelity in an interview last week. “Hey, that’s part of being a basketball player. There’s always something,” she told 92.3 AMP Radio’s Shoboy in the Morning. “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 super nice guy. This is not the kind of thing he would do.”
The leaked clip is currently the source of major contention in the Lakers locker room. Numerous sources told ESPN that Russell is currently being isolated by his teammates because of the clip. “It’s bad,” one insider told the outlet. “It’s about as bad as it can get. There were trust issues already. Now there’s no trust.”
Young has yet to directly address the video, but he joked about his engagement this past weekend. Click here to see Iggy’s massive engagement ring.
