Iggy Azalea and fiancé Nick Young are "doing well" after weathering a "rough patch" and an ongoing controversy that has raised speculation he had cheated on her, E! News has learned.

The rumors began last week after an online video showed the 30-year-old Los Angeles Lakers player watching television in a hotel room while talking about women with teammate D'Angelo Russell, 20, who appears to have filmed the clip. He asks Young about a 19-year-old woman he met at a club last summer. Young seems unaware he is being recorded.

The 25-year-old rapper and Young, who have been dating since late 2013 and recently postponed their wedding due to scheduling conflicts, have not commented directly on the rumors.

Iggy had tweeted Wednesday, "Hmmm i see D Angelo Russell is trending... I actually liked his film. Thanks bro."

A source close to Young told E! News exclusively that despite the controversy, Iggy and Young "are still doing well."

"Nick and Iggy had a rough patch months ago and Nick got caught up in things he shouldn't have been dabbling in," another source said, adding that the men's conversation took place months ago as well. "This has not been an ongoing problem between Iggy and Nick though, just a mistake. Nick really loves Iggy."

"Nick and Iggy have spoken today and they plan on talking more about what happened, why it happened and if they can get past this patch," the source added. 

Los Angeles Times Lakers writer Mike Bresnahan reported Wednesday afternoon that Russell has since apologized to Young, who accepted his apology. The two have not commented.

The first source told E! News Young was "beyond furious" at Russell when he found out about the video.

"That was his boy, his close friend and teammate," the source told E! News. "He went behind his back and taped this. Nick could care less who leaked it at this point in the game. He is more pissed at the fact it was even recorded without his knowledge. He wants to win for the Lakers so he is not gonna let this get involved with his career."

"The only thing I'm disappointed about is that it got out," Lakers Head Coach Byron Scott told reporters, according to Fox Sports. "We're a family and we try to keep everything in-house. That's the only thing I'm disappointed about."
