Iggy Azaela Hits The Town Without Her Engagement Ring As She Reveals Doubts About Marrying Nick Young!
It appears Iggy Azaela isn't as committed as we thought.
Despite pledges of allegiance to fiancé (?) Nick Young, it sounds like Iggy has had a change of heart now that she's had time to reflect on the basketball star's cheating scandal.

While there could be a simple explanation for why the rapper decided to remove her bling while exiting a radio station yesterday, her fresh comments on the Bert Show make it hard for us to believe that this ringless outing was a coincidence!
When asked if her wedding to Nick was still on, Iggy openly stated:

As we reported, the Lakers player was caught on tape admitting to cheating on his fiancée. The incident created a maelstrom of controversy, and many speculated that the Fancy rapper was going to breakup with her man!
