Iggy Azalea and Nick Young are no longer together and it’s official. The Australian rapper admitted that though she still loves Young, she was unable to rebuild the trust in him despite all the efforts.


Azalea took to Instagram to announce her decision to break up with the 31-year-old Los Angeles Lakers guard. The 26-year-old said that parting ways with her long-time partner was not an easy decision but she had no choice after failing to trust Young again.

“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 I am unable to,” she wrote as quoted by the Mirror.co.uk. “I genuinely wish Nick the best. It’s never easy to part ways with the person you planned you’re entire future with, but futures can be rewritten and as of today mine is a blank page.”

Young changed his relationship status on his Twitter account to “single” minutes after Azalea’s Instagram post. The pair got engaged in June 2015, with Young burning a hole in his pocket to buy the $500,000 diamond ring for Azalea.

However, things got bitter since a video leak in which Young was seen bragging about cheating on his girlfriend Azalea with a teenager to his Lakers teammate D’Angelo Russell. The video emerged just a few weeks after Young announced that he and Azalea decided to postpone their wedding. But according to Azalea the wedding date was being deferred due to her globe-trotting schedule.

In April, about a month after the cheating scandal broke, Azalea was spotted without the dazzling wedding ring on her finger. The report about Azalea not wearing the wedding ring reportedly irked Young big time.

“It’s all bad,” the Hollywood Life quoted a friend of Young as saying. “Nick’s gone out and spent a grip on Iggy’s ring and now she’s not wearing it. He’s walking on egg shells and believes she’s playing mind games with him. They made a pact she wouldn’t take it off after this [cheating] scandal and he thought they were are good.”

The absence of the ring on her finger became the talk of the town. At that time, she said, “He doesn’t deserve for me to be wearing his ring right now. We’re not engaged, but you have to do some work to [see me] put the ring back on.”

The Hollywood Life reported that she was later spotted wearing the ring once again, in an attempt to give their relationship a second chance.
