There’s never a good time for a woman to find out her man has been cheating, but for Iggy Azalea, the timing for Nick Young’s cheating scandal really couldn’t be much worse. We have the EXCLUSIVE scoop on why it’s so unfortunate!
Just as Iggy Azalea was coming back into the spotlight, her whole world blew up right in front of her eyes. Her NBA fiancé, Nick Young, 30, was caught on tape admitting to cheating on the 25-year-old rapper, which wasn’t just humiliating for Iggy — it also came at a terrible time for her career. It’s one thing for Nick to totally derail Iggy’s love life, but he also could be messing with her musical success!
“Right now Iggy’s so angry and saying she’s done with him but there’s still a good chance she’ll go back on that, she has before. A big part of the problem is that she doesn’t have much of her own support system here, Nick is her whole world,” a source revealed to HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. “Plus, the timing of this could not be worse, she’s launching her comeback album and she really needs Nick’s support. It’s very hard for her to imagine her life without him.”
Aww, poor Iggy! It’s hard enough to find out that the love of your life cheated on you, but the fact that he’s her biggest supporter must make this whole situation even tougher for Iggy to bear. She just released her first single since 2014, titled “Team,” hinting that she’s making a resurgence into her rap career…but without her team at home, her comeback might be a lot messier than expected!
Iggy even revealed on March 18 that her and Nick’s wedding was postponed so she could tour, indicating that her career is just as important as her love life. If her relationship falls apart, though, could that mean her rapping will too?
But before we get too worried about Iggy and her music, let’s think about this. Nick may be one of Iggy’s biggest supporters when it comes to her career, but clearly he isn’t so concerned about supporting their relationship. Cheaters aren’t supporters!
Besides, Iggy had no problem calling Nick out on Twitter as soon as the news surfaced. The whole scandal started when Nick’s teammate D’Angelo Russell shared a video of Nick confessing to cheating on his fiancee, and Iggy quickly thanked D’Angelo for exposing his infidelity. Even if Nick’s cheating ultimately results in a breakup, maybe Iggy won’t be so bad without him after all?
Either way, we’re sure Iggy would much rather have this kind of attention on her music rather than her unfaithful fiancé, so the timing is still pretty unfortunate. And if she really can’t imagine life without him, this whole ordeal is probably weighing on her pretty heavily no matter what she says on social media. Whatever happens with her and Nick, we just hope it doesn’t mean her career is put on hold any longer!
HollywoodLifers, do you think Iggy’s new album will be affected by this cheating scandal? Should she forgive Nick? Tell us below!
