Iggy Azalea claims that “problems” with fiance Nick Young only exist “on the Internet.”
One week after Young’s Los Angeles Lakers teammate, D’Angelo Russell, secretly filmed (and leaked) a video clip of Young discussing his infidelity, including a 19-year-old he met at a club, the “Fancy” recording artist is set to appear on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show,” where she opens up about the ongoing drama surrounding her relationship.
In a preview clip from today’s show, host Ellen DeGeneres asks Azalea about the “controversy.” She replies by ensuring fans everything is OK in paradise. “We’re good. There isn’t [controversy] at home, just on the Internet,” she says.
hmmm i see D Angelo Russell is trending … I actually liked his film. Thanks bro.

Although Azalea’s initial response to the video clip alluded to her feeling Young was unfaithful and she was grateful for the confirmation, now that the dust has settled, the “Black Widow” rapper and Young “are good” and remain engaged to be married. “Iggy is not going to leave Nick. She loves him and he loves her and she has forgiven him before for flirtations,” a source told E! News. “Ultimately, he will always love her.”
She also responded to a fan on Twitter who asked about the status of her relationship in the wake of the scandal. “Lol, errrrr … Nick and I are good babe,” Iggy tweeted Tuesday, April, 5.
Of course, Azalea is no stranger to controversy. In fact, she’s experienced her fair share of criticism on the Internet, from anonymous Twitter users to high-profile feuds with stars including Britney Spears, Talib Kweli, and Azealia Banks to name a few. When asked why she thinks she is such an easy target, the Australian beauty replied, “I think there’s really a weird place on the Internet where it’s like, we call them trolls,” she explains. “There’s just a lot of people that take great joy in saying really awful things to people, so I get a lot of that.”
Included in the “awful things” are comments regarding her rap skills, cultural appropriation and accusations she’s gone under the knife to achieve her hot bod — but one thing we’ll give Azalea credir for, she always defends her decisions, including getting a nose job and breast implants. “There was nothing wrong with me. I think it’s a personal choice and anybody, man or woman, they should be able to make an informed decision,” she says, “and if you want to change something then that’s up to you.”
