WTF? The LA Lakers are turning their backs on teammate D’Angelo Russell after he allegedly filmed and leaked video of Nick Young confessing to cheating on Iggy Azalea, HollywoodLife.com can EXCLUSIVELY confirm.
Okay, this is ridiculous. D’Angelo Russell, 20, is being totally shunned by his own team, the Los Angeles Lakers, a source tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. Should the rookie player be worried about getting traded after allegedly putting Nick Young, 30, on blast for cheating on his fiancee, Iggy Azalea, 25?
Those of you who have been cheated on will be truly baffled by this. Instead of standing by D’Angelo Russell for allegedly airing Nick Young’s dirty laundry, and potentially keeping Iggy Azalea from marrying a cheater, the Los Angeles Lakers have decided to turn their backs on their rookie point guard. How absurd is that?
“D’Angelo is in the doghouse with the Lakers, everyone is mad at him,” a team source has shared EXCLUSIVELY with HollywoodLife.com. “Basically the NBA has endless groupies and everyone cheats on their girlfriends or wives, so to do this video and and have it get out there showing Nick admitting that he hooks up with girls other than his girlfriend just shows to everyone that D’Angelo can’t be trusted.”
Because of all of this, there is an overwhelming sense of “tension” in the team’s locker room, as originally reported by ESPN. The original report also revealed that the Lakers are “isolating” the young player.
A source confirmed this EXCLUSIVELY to HollywoodLife.com, “Nobody wants to play with him. The front office hopes it blows over during the summer but it isn’t looking that will be the case and he is officially trade bait.”
For those of you unfamiliar with the situation, D’Angelo allegedly recorded video of his teammate, Nick, revealing details about a hot hook up with a 19-year-old girl. The video was later leaked online, quickly revealing that Nick had cheated on his fiancee, Iggy, with the younger girl. Sadly, it seems like D’Angelo is the one being punished for Nick’s poor decisions.
