Hustle Gang’s Iggy Azalea doesn’t have to worry about balling hard these days as reports suggest she has found a new boyfriend in Los Angeles Lakers star Nick Young.
According to reports, Young has liked the Australian rapper for the past couple months.
HUGE WIN for Los Angeles Lakers small forward Nick Young last night … the NBA star finally got himself a date with the woman he’s been crushing on for months … and TMZ Sports has the footage. Young hit up a carnival at L.A. Live Monday night with Iggy Azalea — a 23-year-old Australian rap phenom who recently signed with T.I.‘s record label. Young has been after Iggy for a while — back in September, he called her out as his crush on WCW (Woman Crush Wednesdays) on Twitter. Iggy tweeted him back and now it seems they’re full on dating.

Last month, Azalea spoke on a hurdle she runs into when it comes to dating.
When talking to Azalea, no topic is off-limits. She doesn’t shy away from discussing her private life, but she’s guarded about mentioning names. “My date?” she says when pressed for details. “He’s a crush I’ve had since 2010. But he always called me ‘sis’! What’s up with that? Why don’t you think I’m pretty? I always thought he was cute.” Despite being a model repped by Wilhelmina, Azalea insists that men don’t show interest in her. “Guys don’t approach me,” she says. “I have to approach them. It’s so annoying. I think I must have a bitchy face, because guys don’t want to talk to me. It’s true, I have a mean face.” (Paper Mag)
Recently, Iggy came clean on her past fling with New York rapper A$AP Rocky.
“I’ve never regretted it. I f*cking loved him. I know he loved me, too,” she said when asked about her finger tat. “I felt like he was somebody I could count on who loved me for being me, and I don’t want to forget that. I would sacrifice a quarter of a pinky for those memories. That’s why I didn’t cross it out all the way, because if I’d covered it up all the way, that says I’m embarrassed. You shouldn’t be ashamed of the trials of becoming an adult. I wanted people to know I’m free for more possible love interests, but also not ashamed.” (Complex)
The Australian rapper hinted at why things fizzled out with A$AP last June.
“You know who the first was,” Iggy added, referring to A$AP being the first famous rapper she has dated. “Let’s be real, you’re not that stupid — we fell out because I’m young and he’s young and it’s a really difficult time. For me, I was going through a lot of stuff and his career was going great and mine was going a different way and we stopped hanging out. But we’re still cool, we’re still friends. … I have no ill feelings to A$AP. He’s cool and I’m really proud of him and his album going number one.” (“The Breakfast Club”)
