Tough Iggy Azalea and Lakers guard Nick Young announced their engagement just two weeks ago, the couple is already going through the tabloid wringer. Donatella Panayiotou, a former MTV host and current British television personality, alleges that she had a romantic relationship with Young that overlapped with Young and Azalea’s. “Nick would lie and say, ‘We’re not together.’ He even claimed a photoshoot of them was just modeling,” Panayiotou says. Along with some shots at the former USC star’s bedroom performance, the TV personality says that the last straw was actually when she found Azalea’s hair clips in Young’s bathroom.
Someone took a pic of us without us knowing and sold it to the tabloids. I got asked for a comment and this is what happened.

Romantic troubles aside, it’s been a tumultuous time for Iggy. The “Fancy” star was supposed to use 2015 as a victory lap of sorts, embarking on her first headlining arena tour and recording the follow-up to her 2014 debut, The New Classic. However, that tour was pushed back, then canceled altogether. (Azalea cited a “creative change of heart,” though it has been widely speculated that the bill suffered from flagging ticket sales.) And that planned second album has hit a standstill, with the Australian rapper admitting she scrapped six months’ worth of work. Azalea was also forced to cancel a planned performance at Pittsburgh’s Pride week after protests from the city’s LGBTQ community.
