Back in June, Iggy Azalea made headlines when she split from her fiancé Nick Young months after a cheating scandal rocked the couple's world. Now, the woman who had the affair with the basketball player is speaking out about the current status of her relationship in the wake of her pregnancy news. (You read that right.)
According to Us Weekly, Young's ex-girlfriend, beauty salon owner Keonna Green, is 22 weeks pregnant with the couple's child (together they have four-year-old son Nick, Jr.). And Keonna notes that despite carrying on an affair during his engagement to the rapper, the twosome are now trying to figure out their relationship.
"I’m giving him his space. On an intimate level, it has stopped," Keonna told Us Weekly. "We haven’t discussed how we’re going to move forward. Right now, he needs to focus on basketball and getting his life in order. Basketball is what puts food on two people’s plates that he’s taking care of. But I will definitely give it a chance if he comes back and says, 'I’m really going to make this work this time.' Why not? But if there was ever any inkling of disrespect … I’m going to be raising a daughter. I would want to let her know that she deserves the world."

Keonna says that she and Nick rekindled their romance last September, just months after he popped the question to Iggy in June 2015. "We would take our son to Magic Mountain together. But sometimes Nick would say, 'Oh, there’s too much traffic,' and he’d just play with Nicholas in his room. We got caught up in the moment and it just happened," she recalled. "I would be like, 'Nick, you cannot be sloppy. You need to be honest [with Azalea].' He would say, 'I don’t want to hear it.' I don’t know what was going on in his household, but me and Nick have lots of history. It wasn’t a secret on my end. I didn’t feel guilty because I was in love with a man, and I’m pretty sure I’m not the only woman. Of course. Let me tell you, this is a little deep into the conversation, but I can count how many people I’ve been with on one hand. And Nick was the person I thought was it for me. When I went back that second time, I was thinking, This is it for me."
But Keonna, who first started dating Nick in high school in 2002, only wishes Iggy the best. "I wish her a lifetime of success. … I mean, I’m definitely not going to apologize for being in love with a man who I have a lot of history with," she said. "I do wish her that kind of success and hope that she can get through this difficult time and she and Nick can move forward from this."
