Nick Young, Iggy Azalea announce break up
Nick Young and Iggy Azalea announced their breakup on Sunday, though they did so in much different ways.
The Los Angeles Lakers guard shared the news with a one-word pronouncement of his current relationship status:

His former fiancee, Azalea, shared the news with a much more thoughtful note on Instagram:
Their breakup comes a little over a year after they got engaged. The two had been together since 2013.
The news of the dissolution of their relationship should not be a surprise. Cheating rumors have dogged Young for quite some time, but they reached a new level of legitimacy and embarrassment for Azalea after Young was videotaped by a teammate admitting to cheating (watch it here). The video became a major source of controversy within the Lakers’ locker room and was a symbol of the dysfunction surrounding the team during a down season.
