Nick Young is so excited about winning his first NBA championship.
Nick Young referenced his Iggy Azalea cheating scandal while with the Los Angeles Lakers after winning his first championship with the Dubs on Friday night.
Young, who signed with the Warriors last July, joked about the 2016 incident involving his former fiancee following the team’s 108-85 win to sweep the Cleveland Cavaliers. He told reporters:
“I went from getting snitched on to putting a ring on,”
Young said two months after breaking up with the pop singer that he was already in the process of forgiving teammate D’Angelo Russell. He said in August 2016:
“We’re teammates. It’s been so long, so it’s kind of old. We’ll be able to work it out. We’ve already been working it out. It is what it is. I can’t be mad forever.”
It seems Iggy Azalea wants Nick Young to keep their dirty laundry out of his mouth. The Australian rapper went to Instagram to criticize the NBA baller for bringing up his cheating scandal. She wrote in the comments section of a video of an interview with Young:
“So much better when you don’t just take your team win & don’t include any celebratory references to you sticking your raw dick in countless chicks while you engaged…at least…I think it is,”
Iggy Azalea clapped back at Instagrammers about Nick Young’s comments. The “Fancy” rapper said:
“Enjoy it without referencing your dirty dick. Not hard,”
Another Instagrammer said Azalea should let Young “enjoy” the win but Azalea wasn’t having it. She responded:
“I want him to stop referencing the shit he did as if it’s funny or even cool just because it’s old now. I’ve moved on but it’s never gonna be a cute joke to make, Congrats on the win tho.”
Azalea also had words for one Instagrammer who said Azalea should be more than a one-hit-wonder. she said, before announcing that her next EP will arrive on July 6:
“Well thanks, not to be cocky but if you look at the stats…I have more than “1 hit” although yes, things have been rough the last few years on the charts,”
It’s been two years since D’Angelo Russell recorded his Los Angeles Lakers’ teammate Nick Young admitting to cheating on his then-fiancée, Iggy Azalea. The video eventually surfaced, leading to the breakup of Young and Azalea a couple of months after the video was posted online. Well, that and the fact the mother of Young’s firstborn claimed she was pregnant with another child of his. Needless to say, Young and the rest of the Lakers felt betrayed by Russell.
