Despite all the jokes, the ramifications of D’Angelo Russell‘s snitching are serious. Lakers head coach Byron Scott says he’s disappointed the “internal problem” was made public while Nick Young is in the midst of trying to save his relationship with fiancee Iggy Azalea.
As for Coach Scott, he told press at the Lakers’ shoot around today (March 30), “The only thing I’m disappointed is that it got it. We’re a family and we try to keep everything in house. So that’s the only thing I’m really disappointed about.”
He added, “It’s an internal problem and we’ll deal with it. Our players are going to deal with it. And we’ll leave it that.”
As for Nick Young, his rapping lover saw the clip and pointed out she had on Twitter. Needless to say, their forthcoming marriage may be a no go.
We’re told by people very close to the couple that both Iggy and Nick are pissed about the D’Angelo Russell video … in which Nick apparently admits to cheating on Iggy over the summer.
Our sources say the engagement is in jeopardy — and Nick and Iggy are “not on good terms.”
Sources close to Nick tell us he’s crushed — telling people he’s madly in love with Iggy and is focusing on trying to repair their relationship.
As for the video … multiple sources tell us it was shot MONTHS ago.
We’re told everyone involved believes the video was obtained and leaked by a 3rd party — not Russell.
The first rule of any relationship, don’t embarrass your partner publicly.
Good luck, Nick.
