Nick Young, Iggy Azalea, Billboard Music Awards


It doesn't look like Nick Young and Iggy Azalea are going to call a time-out in their relationship.

While the Hollywood couple has been put under the microscope in recent days, multiple sources confirm to E! News that the pair is not breaking up or splitting. Instead, the Los Angeles Lakers athlete and rapper are trying their best to move forward from the video scandal.

"Iggy is not going to leave Nick. She loves him and he loves her and she has forgiven him before for flirtations," a source shared with E! News. "Ultimately, he will always love her."

Another insider added, "The engagement is still on but Iggy is taking a back seat from this situation until it calms down more."

That's not to say the controversy has been easy on the "Team" rapper. The alleged video in question quickly made front-page headlines and become a topic both in the pop culture and sports community.

Ultimately, it appears that things were a bit challenging for Iggy to have private matters become public. "She was very upset that everyone knew about her personal business," our insider shared. "But she is getting over it and they will be fine. The engagement is still on."

Another hurdle in this story is the relationship between Nick and his Los Angeles Lakers teammate D'Angelo Russell. Just one week ago, the athlete told reporters how close he was with Nick before the private video somehow leaked online without his consent.

"It wasn't a prank. It wasn't something for everybody else to see. It was for my eyes, his eyes only. That was it," D'Angelo shared. "He's one of the guys I've always talked to about anything and I cherished our friendship and for me to have an incident like this and put it in jeopardy was not what I was intending to do."

While a source tells us that the pair's friendship is not the same today, things are getting better between the pair and the entire team.

"Everyone is starting to forget about it," our insider shared." The dynamic is not the same in the locker room but it is improving. The whole debacle is passing."
