Oh no! Iggy Azalea’s fiance Nick Young is being investigated for sexually harassing two women, one of them an elderly mother! Read on for more about the stunning allegations.
So shocking! Los Angeles Lakers star Nick Young, 30, and his teammate Jordan Clarkson, 23, have been accused of making “vulgar, sexual gestures” to a prominent women’s rights advocate and her 68-year-old mother. The team’s management has confirmed they’re taking the report very seriously, but Nick is going to have some major explaining to do with his 25-year-old rapper fiancee Iggy Azalea.
One of Nick’s alleged victims is Alexis Jones, a Los Angeles activist who campaigns against pro-athletes committing acts of sexual and domestic violence. She claims in her scary account that after leaving dinner in Hollywood with her mother March 20, a large jeep pulled up alongside of their small car and that men inside – which allegedly included Nick and Jordan – began making crude sexual gestures toward them. Yikes!
“She was super rattled. That’s the truth. It scared her,” Alexis told ESPN. “We were in a small car, and they were in a big Jeep, and it was a bunch of big dudes. They’re leaning out of the car and making vulgar, sexual gestures. My mom was really shocked. That immediately turned into sobbing.” This isn’t the first time Nick has been accused of something questionable of a sexual nature, as a woman claimed in 2013 that he drugged and raped her, but the pair eventually settled the case out of court.
(***PLEASE NOTE… I never could have imagined the reaction this post would cause or the thousands of inhumane comments and death threats I would receive because of it. The only reason I'm not deleting it altogether is because THIS perfectly epitomizes why less than 20% of women EVER speak up and report ANYTHING. Because the victim shaming and hateful backlash is usually worse than even the initial incident. I'm grateful for moments like these to root the work I do into something so painfully personal. The comments below contain highly vulgar and inappropriate language. Please remember that people who spread hate like this are in pain and they more than anyone, need our love. Adversity only makes us stronger in our convictions and I'm grateful for this moment to remind me why the work I do is so important.)———————————————— I pray these pics go viral because THIS is the problem with little boys. Five minutes ago, at the intersection of Melrose and La Bre here in LA, a jeep of four boys pulled up at a red light and started yelling and making the most disgustingly vulgar gestures at my mom and me. I rarely "rant" about things but this is the f%+#ing problem and the reason I've now dedicated my life to educating young men about respect, not just for women but for everyone. I'm angry. I'm insulted. I'm hurt. They were laughing hysterically until they realized I was filming them and immediately they panicked like the cowards they are. Thank you to all the real men out there who would never treat a mother and daughter that way… Speaking of, I'd love for this to make it back to their mothers!!! Help me find who these guys are!!! Let's see the power of social media and hold them accountable. I'd LOVE to have a candid conversation with them about sexual harassment not simply to shame them, but to understand their mentality so we can better educate young men to be respectful in the future. #littleboys #cowards #realmenrespectwomen #messedwiththewrongchick #wewillfindyou
Nick responded by tweeting (then deleting) “Aye if you want some attention take a pic of me and say anything next to it and post…The world we live in,” after Alexis posted a photo of the guys hanging out the Jeep’s window to her Instagram, along with a long long rant about what happened.
A spokesman for the Lakers said that they’re taking the matter “very seriously” and that Lakers head coach Byron Scott was aware of the situation and had talked to both of his players. Alexis told the network that she requested a call with them to talk through the issue and hopefully receive an apology, but the team said no to that. So far Iggy hasn’t responded to the claims via any of her social media, but we imagine she’s probably pretty shocked by the report, especially with it coming on the heels of the news that she and Nick have postponed their 2016 wedding.
HollywoodLifers, are you shocked by the allegations against Nick?
