Iggy Azalea's fiancé, Lakers player Nick Young, is embroiled in a controversial scandal that's rocking the Lakers and his relationship with Azalea. Young was unknowingly videotaped by teammate D'Angelo Russell and admits to cheating on Azalea with a 19-year-old after a wild night out at "the club." The drama made its way onto the Internet and into the Lakers' locker room. The ordeal is said to be the cause of their poor showing against the Utah Jazz in Salt Lake City on Monday night; they lost by a whopping 48 points, extending the Lakers' worst season in history.
In the video, Russell asks Young, "You was 30 and she was 19?" referencing Young's age and the age of another woman that Young said that he met in a nightclub.
"What about Amber Rose?" Russell asks.
"No, she knows my girl," Young responds.
Later in the clip, Russell is heard telling Young, "I'm glad you told my video all that."
Young answers with an oblivious "Huh?"
According to an insider via ESPN, it was a prank gone wrong, and now the team is punishing Russell by isolating him. "He has to be held accountable," said a source close to the team, "but I would hope he isn't overly criticized for it."
"It's bad," another team source said. "It's about as bad as it can get. There were trust issues already. Now there's no trust."
The video got back to Iggy Azalea, who recently announced she's delaying her wedding to Young to "tour," but it appears she's having second thoughts because of this. She Tweeted: "hmmm i see D Angelo Russell is trending... I actually liked his film. Thanks bro."
