Putting the Dogg down! As the feud between rappers Snoop Dogg and Iggy Azalea rages on, the “Fancy” emcee’s basketball-playing boyfriend has now chimed in. Lakers star Nick Young took to Twitter on Tuesday, Oct. 14, to defend his girl, tweeting, “Ain’t nobody worried about no SnoopLion .. This dude Just goin thru a midlife Crisis you Go get convertible yet . OG’s out here losin.”

The online feud began after Snoop Dogg, 42, posted an insulting meme mocking a recent photo of Azalea, 24, not wearing any makeup. Azalea then shot back at the “Hangover” rapper on Twitter, writing, “@SnoopDogg why would you post such a mean pic on insta when you send your body guards to ask me for pictures every time we are at shows together? My bodyguard stopped the fire truck that saved your friends life in canada when he almost burnt down the hotel. and every time I've ever spoken to you you've always been nice as hell, I'm disappointed you'd be such an ass for no reason.”

Snoop then fired back in a series of insulting, and, at times, disturbing Instagram images that included a seemingly fake video of an Azalea look-alike sucking on a fake penis and a picture of Nicki Minaj sitting alone with the caption, “Nicki sitting with other relevant female rappers.” 

Pulling Minaj into the mix brought up Azalea’s previous feud with the “Anaconda” rapper from this year’s BET Awards in June. 

“Where is Iggy ? Nowhere insight,” Snoop Dogg commented on the photo. “@realnickiminaj_ F-c the fake n non writers yeah that means u again biitch !! Go nikki go Hoe Iggy hoe !! Sweet dreams c—t.” 

During her acceptance speech at the BET Awards, Minaj, 31, now famously declared, “What I want the world to know about Nicki Minaj is, when you hear Nicki Minaj spit, Nicki Minaj wrote it." 

The alleged diss was widely assumed to be in reference to Azalea, and, at the time, Young, 29, also defended his girlfriend

"When she got home and was going through her phone and hearing all the things and people talking trash about her, you know I had to be there for her," the baller told Us Weekly at the ESPN Body Issue Party in July. "But you know what, Iggy is doing big things and its scaring a lot of people!"
