If it weren't for Iggy Azalea's abundance of love — and a strong (ok, elementary school level) grasp of the English language — her L.A. Lakers fiancé, Nick Young, would probably be VERY permanently embarrassed right now. According to cringe-worthy, albeit hilarious, tweets posted by the Australian rapper, her hubby-to-be got thiiiis close to having the words "BORN REBLE" be forever etched into his back. Luckily, he has a fiancée with a heart of gold who decided to intervene at the last second and set things straight. Ok, sort of...

As noted in one of the artist's tweets, she at first considered not even flagging the major ink oopsie. She admitted, "I was going to be petty and not say!" But when it comes to true love, Azalea decided not to ruin her beau's back at the expense of a never-ending joke (although she did wind up posting a photo of the NBA star's near-mishap on Twitter for all of her fans to see!).

You may be wondering why the Australian celeb would even consider allowing such a catastrophe to happen, but we have a feeling it may have something to do with the nasty rumors circulating around the web. OR, as People points out, it may have a little something to do with the word "Becky."

If you've been hiding under a rock for the past week, you may be confused as to what relevance the word "Becky" has in all of this. Well, after Beyoncé came out with her visual album Lemonade this past Sunday, the Internet literally imploded over who in the world the woman "Becky" could be. Seriously, just Google it. But apparently the Lakers player ended up calling his bae "Becky" after she took a stance against being called "Becky." So, what better way to seek revenge than to post an embarrassing photo of your fiancé?

Moral to the story: don't even dare messin' with the realest.
