Iggy Azalea, do not, I repeat, do not, think any less of yourself because your now-ex fiancé, Nick Young, was an an underhanded cheater. That’s his flaw. You did nothing wrong.
Iggy Azalea, you may be beating yourself up inside for not realizing sooner that your fiancé of two years was cheating on you behind your back. If you’re self-punishing – you need to stop that now.
Iggy – you are the victim here. You were a loving, trusting fiancé to basketball star Nick Young, 31, and that’s what you were supposed to be. The whole point of being engaged to somebody is because you are committing to marry them for a lifetime. You are committing to being each other’s best friend and to being able to totally trust each other.
You didn’t break that trust. Nick did. Sadly, you learned that he cheated on you multiple times. First, when he admitted to it on video to LA Lakers teammate, D’Angelo Russell. Then, when he eventually confessed that he had slept with and gotten his ex-girlfriend, Keona Green, pregnant about four months ago.
Finally, you just revealed on Twitter that “he had brought other women into our home while I was away and caught them on the security footage.” And, not surprisingly, you feel you’ve taken “a second shot to the chest. And I feel like I don’t even know who the hell it is I’ve been loving all this time,” you tweeted.
Iggy, you’ve hit the nail right on the head. You don’t know who the hell you’ve been living with because Nick has been living a double life. He was pretending to be your loving, loyal fiance to your face, but messing around with multiple women behind your back.
It doesn’t mean that he didn’t love you. It does mean that he wasn’t ready to get married. He was too immature, to really make that commitment. Either he wanted to break up but didn’t have the guts to be upfront about it, so he cheated and made sure you’d find out and do the splitting for him. OR, he’s just an insecure little boy inside who needs to have his manhood reaffirmed by multiple women.
In either case, his cheating has nothing to do with you doing anything wrong or having any sort of flaw. Your only mistake was trusting him at face value. And really… why wouldn’t you, at least until D’Angelo’s video came out.
No matter what Iggy, do not blame yourself. Nick’s got major problems and he’ll continue to cheat on any woman he gets involved with until he grows some maturity, mans up and resolves his issues. Just thank your lucky stars that you found out about this before you married him.
And yes, sadly, you’ll need to keep your eyes wide open even more, when you get involved in your next serious romance. But don’t get totally bummed. Not all men are cheaters. Your soul mate is out there and one day you’ll find him.
Sayonara, Nick Young! It’s your loss, not Iggy’s.
