Iggy Azalea’s ex-fiancé Nick Young reportedly began seeing the mother of his child behind the rapper’s back just three months after proposing to her.
The "Black Widow" hitmaker became engaged to basketball player Nick on his 30th birthday in June, less than two years after they began dating. However, their relationship hit headlines in March amid claims of the sportsman’s infidelity, and last month, Iggy called off their plans to wed and announced they had split, as it emerged Young’s ex-girlfriend, Keonna Green, is pregnant with his second child.
Now Keonna, who shares four-year-old Nick Jr. with the athlete, has broken her silence to detail her rekindled romance with Young, revealing the former couple started getting intimate again last autumn – despite his engagement to Iggy.
“It was last year, around September,” she recalls to Us Weekly magazine. “We would take our son to Magic Mountain (theme park in California) together. But sometimes Nick would say, ‘Oh, there’s too much traffic’, and he’d just play with Nicholas in his room. We got caught up in the moment and it just happened.”
Keonna alleges she warned Nick not to be “sloppy” and urged him to “be honest” with Iggy, but he brushed off her concerns and decided to keep their reunion under wraps, while continuing to date the Australian star in public.
The former high school cheerleader claims she has no regrets about sleeping with Nick again, because even though they were no longer together romantically, she genuinely believed he was ‘The One.’
“I didn’t feel guilty because I was in love with a man,” she says defiantly.
She maintains she tried to reach out to Iggy herself, but states, “I never got a response.”
And Keonna, who is expecting a daughter, has nothing but good wishes for her famous former love rival: “I wish her a lifetime of success… I mean, I’m definitely not going to apologize for being in love with a man who I have a lot of history with. I do wish her that kind of success and hope that she can get through this difficult time and she and Nick can move forward from this.”
Keonna’s candid interview emerges almost a week after Iggy took to Twitter to accuse Nick of cheating on her with multiple women, having allegedly caught her man being unfaithful on their home security cameras.
However, the Us Weekly chat could land Keonna in legal trouble after she was warned to keep Iggy’s name out of any tabloid tell-all.
A warning letter issued by the hip-hop star’s lawyer, Howard King, and obtained by TMZ editors on Wednesday, reads: “Ms. Green has done enough to embarrass herself by her pathetic efforts to profit from Iggy’s hard-won celebrity, all in exchange for whatever paltry sums she can garner in exchange for peddling tales of her tasteless exploits…
“Any mention of Iggy in your client’s efforts to sell a story to whatever tabloid needs to fill its pages with the fetid story of your client’s classless antics will be considered a violation of Iggy’s rights of publicity… subjecting Ms. Green and any publication that airs your client’s soiled laundry to significant liability.”
