The leaked video didn’t go over too well with Iggy Azalea. According to TMZ, Nick Young’s relationship with Iggy is hanging by a thread and the two are “not on good terms.”
TMZ also confirms that the video was shot months ago and is said to have been leaked by a third-party – not D’Angelo Russell. But the tension between the two NBA stars is still thick.
Lakers player D’Angelo Russell just broke the number one rule of bro code.
In what appears to be a Snapchat video, teammate Nick Young (who is unknowingly being recorded) is asked about allegedly being involved with other women. This creates a huge issue because Young got engaged to rapper Iggy Azalea last June. The video recently found its way onto the internet and has reportedly created a rift in the Lakers locker room – not to mention the team lost to the Utah Jazz Monday night by 48 points.
“You was 30 and she was 19?” Russell asked Young, referencing a woman he met at a club.
Later in the video, Russell allegedly said, “I’m glad you told my video all that.”
According to the LA Times, the clip was filmed months ago and is a result of the guys on the team constantly trying to prank each other. But Russell took things a bit too far this time.
“D’Angelo is sometimes 20 going on 14,” a person familiar with the situation told the Times.
Neither the Lakers, nor Nick Young or D’Angelo Russell have made a public statement about the touchy subject. Luckily, the Lakers only have eight games left in the season, so hopefully cooler heads will prevail.
And now, this play makes a lot more sense:
Meanwhile, Iggy had this to say:
