Now that he’s been outed as a cheater, Nick Young has to win back his fiancee Iggy Azalea, and HollywoodLife.com has learned EXCLUSIVELY how Kobe Bryant is helping him do just that.
Nick Young, 30, has a lot of work to do, and despite his bad boy behavior, he has mentor Kobe Bryant, 37, to guide his way. After a shocking video allegedly filmed by D’Angelo Russell, 20, leaked online and revealed Nick’s sexual tryst with a 19-year-old girl, the star player is leaning on Kobe for advice on how to get Iggy Azalea, 25, back in his arms.
Once a cheater, always a cheater? Hopefully not, especially when it comes to Nick and his longtime girlfriend, Iggy. As the Lakers turn their back on D’Angelo for allegedly betraying Nick by recording him bragging about a hot hook up that wasn’t his fiancee, Kobe is standing behind Nick and offering up tips on mending his romance.
“Kobe has also been caught cheating on his wife and had to deal with her fury. Eventually with a lot of work, he got her back. He’s trying to show Nick that if he loves Iggy he will have to walk the same line,” a source close to the teammates tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. “He suggests not one but many grand gestures.”
Hmm. Could grand gestures really get Iggy back, especially after going through the humiliation of finding out about Nick’s cheating the same way the public did? Well, it’s worth a shot.
What kind of “grand gestures” could Kobe mean? Our source explained, “Kobe got a big tattoo honoring his wife after the cheating scandal in Colorado, made public statement acknowledging he made a mistake and begged her for forgiveness and bought he a massive diamond ring as well as other extravagant jewelry. He worked at winning Vanessa back as hard as he did to win championships.”
No matter what Nick’s plan is, he has a lot of work to do, so he better get started very soon. Fingers crossed we get an update on whether or not he and Iggy’s wedding will go on sooner rather than later!
