The rapper, who said she stills loves Young and wishes him the best, cited trust issues as the reason behind the breakup.

Nearly three months after Young was involved in an alleged cheating scandal – and after the couple had seemingly moved past the drama – the Australian rapper announced that she has ended things with her Lakers player fiancé.
“Unfortunately although I love Nick and have tried to rebuild my trust in him – It’s become apparent in the last few weeks I am unable to,” Azalea, 26, wrote on Instagram Sunday.
“I genuinely wish Nick the best. It’s never easy to part ways with the person you planned you’re [sic] entire future with, but futures can be rewritten and as of today mine is a blank page.”
Nick Young also confirmed the breakup news himself on Twitter.
“Single,” Young tweeted.
The couples, who have been dating since November 2013, had announced their engagement in June 2015.
Back in March, a video surfaced online which appeared to show the 30-year-old basketball player confessing to cheating on his famous fiancee.
The video was filmed months before that by one of Young’s basketball teammates, D’Angelo Russell, but it’s not known who leaked it online.
Azalea responded on Twitter, saying:
“If there’s proof of cheating, she’d be doing me a favour to post it actually. Im not tryna marry a cheater.”
Less than a week later, she walked the red carpet at the iHeartRadio Music Awardswhile wearing her yellow diamond engagement ring.
The rapper told TV host Ryan Seacrest around that time that the wedding would be delayed.
“It was going to happen at the end of the year, but now I have to go to work so we’ll probably have to wait until the end of the next basketball season to do that,” Azalea said.
“So that kind of is a bit sucky, but it’s all right.”
In April, Azalea appeared on The Ellen DeGeneres Show and spoke about the Internet controversy surrounding Young secretly being taped and allegedly admitting to cheating with another woman. At the time, she said she was still engaged and added, “We’re good. There isn’t any [controversy] at home, just on the Internet.”
The Lakers player was talking about wedding plans as recently as earlier this week (Tuesday, June 14), when he was a guest on Billboard’s Ballin’ Out podcast.
“It’s coming along. It’s a little tough because a lot of people want to come … And she’s just turned into this — what’s it called, bridezilla?” he said, later adding that he wanted to handle the menu planning.
However, fans began to speculate that all was not well with the couple when Azalea posted photos from an apparently Young-less birthday vacation with her girlfriends last week. In the multiple bikini photos she shared on Instagram, the rapper was not wearing her engagement ring.
