Kobe’s farewell season is not looking good, and now the Los Angeles Lakers have taken another hit after D’Angelo Russell recorded teammate Nick Young confessing to cheating on Iggy Azalea.
Q-Tip Gives Iggy Azalea a Hip-Hop History Lesson
No word yet on how the video leaked or why Russell recorded it, but sources say the rookie point guard is being shunned by the other players. Still, there is one person on his side, Iggy Azalea. The rapper took to Twitter to thank Russell for leaking the vid, saying,
hmmm i see D Angelo Russell is trending… I actually liked his film. Thanks bro.— IGGY AZALEA (@IGGYAZALEA) March 30, 2016
“hmmm i see D Angelo Russell is trending… I actually liked his film. Thanks bro.”
In the video, Young talks about a 19-year-old girl he’d allegedly hooked up with and there’s brief mention of Amber Rose, who Young says he’s never made a move on because “she knows my girl.”
Young and Azalea have been engaged since June, but this might throw a wrench in their plans. As for Russell and the rest of the Lakers, you can probably cut the tension with a knife.
