Iggy Azalea confirms breakup with Nick Young
MANILA, Philippines – Rapper Iggy Azalea confirmed that she and her fiance, Los Angeles Lakers basketball player Nick Young have split.
Iggy made the announcement on her Instagram, Sunday June 19 (Monday, June 20 in Manila).
"Unfortunately although I love Nick and have tried to rebuild my trust in him – It's become apparent in the last few weeks I am unable to," she wrote. "I genuinely wish Nick the best. It's never easy to part ways with the person you planned [your] entire future with, but futures can be rewritten and as of today mine is a blank page."
Nick also confirmed the news with a simple word on Twitter: "Single."

He confirmed the authencity of the video in a press conference, as quoted by People magazine: "What happened is what happened. We've got to work on it."
The issue has reportedly caused a strain on Iggy and Nick's relationship. In a recent Instagram post, fans noticed that Iggy was not wearing her engagement ring in a series of Instagram photos that she posted with her friends during a vacation.
Prior to the breakup, Iggy addressed the issue of her relationship with Nick in a series of tweets last March:
