Nick Young’s engagement to Iggy Azalea is in jeopardy after a private conversation between him and teammate conversation D’Angelo Russell leaked on the Internet. In the video, Young openly talks about cheating on his fiance Iggy Azalea with a 19-year-old after a night out in LA.
The video was shot by Lakers rookie D’Angelo Russell who sent it to a few people on Snapchat IM but eventually leaked online.
Young isn’t happy about the whole thing and is even considering filing a lawsuit over the leaked video.
We’re told by people very close to the couple that both Iggy and Nick are pissed about the D’Angelo Russell video … in which Nick apparently admits to cheating on Iggy over the summer.
Our sources say the engagement is in jeopardy — and Nick and Iggy are “not on good terms.”
Sources close to Nick tell us he’s crushed — telling people he’s madly in love with Iggy and is focusing on trying to repair their relationship.
As for the video … multiple sources tell us it was shot MONTHS ago.
We’re told everyone involved believes the video was obtained and leaked by a 3rd party — not Russell.
That being said, we’re told the tension between D.R. and Young is thick — but a Lakers honcho is planning to sit them down to hash this thing out man to man as soon as possible.
The Lakers want them to bury the hatchet so they can move forward.
And then there’s this … we’re told Nick has already contacted his lawyers to weigh his legal options — but it’s unclear if he’s planning to go after D’Angelo or whoever posted the video.
It doesn’t seem like this scandal is going to blow over any time soon which is unfortunate considering that these final eight games of the season were meant to celebrate Kobe Bryant’s career with the team.
