Iggy Azalea may have a messy situation on hand after her fiancée Nick Young was caught on video unknowingly confessing to cheating.

In a clear violation of guy code, Young’s Lakers teammate D’Angelo Russell is accused of secretly taping a conversation between himself and Young about the latter’s extra-Iggy affairs.

In the leaked video, Russell is heard asking Young (who’s been engaged to Azalea since last June) about other women he’s slept with during their relationship. After Young mentions a 19-year-old woman from a club, Russell says, “You was 30 and she was 19?”

Russell then follows up with, “What about Amber Rose, you ain’t never tried?” Nick responds, “No, she knows my girl.”

Russell later reveals he’s been recording the convo, telling Young, “I’m glad you told my video all that,” and Nick says, “Huh?”

Iggy is just glad to have this information about Swaggy P.

Now, of course, Russell’s teammates think he’s super shady and won’t sit with him and the team is reportedly in shambles emotionally.

Via ESPN:

While it’s unclear how the video became public, sources say the resulting tension in the Lakers’ locker room in recent days was among the factors that contributed to L.A.’s limp showing in Salt Lake City on Monday night, when they absorbed a 48-point pounding from the Utah Jazz. The loss was the Lakers’ worst in franchise history.

One source describes the video taping as a “prank gone wrong,” while another says of the team’s camaraderie, “It’s bad. It’s about as bad as it can get. There were trust issues already. Now there’s no trust.”

Locker room culture is such bullshit. Team Russell on this one.
