NBA player and Iggy Azalea's fiancée Nick Young is in hot water today after a video has leaked of him professing his love for a nineteen year old woman.
The problem? Iggy is 25 years old.
The video has made waves throughout the NBA fanbase today, after being filmed by Young's teammate D'Angelo Russell. It features Young, who doesn't seem to know that he's on camera, discussing his romantic involvement with a nineteen year old.
It's currently unknown how the video was leaked, but Bleacher Report is suggesting that it spread through Twitter like wildfire after Russell shared it accidentally on Snapchat.
Allegedly, the scandal has lead to a major feud in the locker room, with Russell's teammates isolating the player. Teammates are refusing to speak to him, and at a recent team meeting, no one would sit at Russell's table.
Since the video's leak, Russell has publicly apologised to Young, saying in a pre-game interview, "I'm as sick as possible. I wish I could make things better right away but I can't". On the other hand, Young seems open to a reunion, stating "Me and D'Angelo handled the situation we have in a private matter. I think it's something we really do need to sit down and talk about."
For her part, Iggy has publicly taken to Twitter to (perhaps sarcastically) thank the player for posting his video.
Maybe it's just our cynical side, but the timing of this video release seems less than coincidental. Iggy appears to be on an apology tour after her negative publicity last year, taking to the airwaves last week to admit to her suicidal thoughts following the copious amounts of hate comments posted online, and there's nothing more redemptive than a scorned girlfriend. As so often happens on the Internet, public perception of Iggy has seemingly changed overnight since the video's leak, with the sympathetic comments flooding in a far cry from the hate she was receiving just a few weeks ago when 'Team' was released.
What do you think of the video? Is the evidence damning enough for Iggy to call it quits, or should she try and hear Nick out? Let us know in the comments down below!
