The single life suits him! Nick Young appeared to be in great spirits during a stroll in downtown Los Angeles on Thursday, June 23, following his split from his ex-fiancée, Iggy Azalea.
Dressed casually in a white T-shirt and blue sweatpants, and carrying several button-down shirts and a bag of Red Vines, the NBA star, 31, was spotted smiling ear to ear as he walked alongside a male pal.
As Us Weekly previously reported, the “Fancy” rapper, 26, took to Instagram on Sunday, June 19, to announce her breakup from the L.A. Lakers shooting guard after months of trouble stemming from a cheating scandal.
“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 that I am unable to,” Azalea wrote. “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.”
Hours later, Young — who asked for the Australian-born beauty’s hand in marriage on his birthday on June 1, 2015 — let his 366,000 Twitter followers know that he is back on the market. “Single,” he wrote.
The couple hit a rough patch back in March when Young allegedly admitted to cheating on Azalea in a video that leaked online, in which the athlete brags about his sexual conquests. The controversial clip was filmed by Young’s teammate D’Angelo Russell.
At the time, Azalea addressed the drama by tweeting, “Hmmm I see D Angelo Russell is trending… I actually liked his film. Thanks bro.”
Back in April, the hip-hop starlet told Z100’s Elvis Duran that despite the hiccup in their romance, she and Young were still planning on tying the knot.
“Giorgio Armani is gonna make my dress,” she said of her wedding gown. “I asked, and I didn’t know if he would, because he really hasn’t made a lot of celebrity wedding gowns….I’m just a fan of classic tailoring, and I wanted my wedding dress to be timeless so I don’t look ridiculous in 25 years when I’m showing my kids, like, ‘Here’s what Mommy wore.’”
On June 21, Azalea confirmed that she is moving out of Young’s L.A. mansion after photographers snapped pics of a car being towed and belongings being dumped on the driveway of the residence.
“I never had anyone’s car towed nor did I kick nick out of ‘my’ house,” she tweeted. “The home belongs to nick, I am the one moving. Thanks.”
