Iggy Azalea and Nick Young's called off engagement just continues to break our hearts. The Australian rapper and the NBA player first postponed their wedding due to the performer's work schedule, then Azalea wrote a tear-jerking Instagram post announcing their broken engagement, and now Azalea is publicizing making the tragic reason behind their split: She caught Young bringing another woman into their home.

A little more than a year after their engagement was first announced &mdaash; and Azalea was flashing that ENORMOUS yellow diamond engagement ring in a slew of Instagram selfies — the couple called it quits. And now, less than two weeks after her split from the basketball player, Azalea is speaking out about why. "I broke up with Nick because I found out he had brought other women into our home while I was away and caught them on the security footage," the 26-year-old rapper, who is currently judging The Voice Australia in her home country, wrote in a tweet on Thursday.


And that wasn't all she wrote. These tweets come amid tabloid reports that Azalea called it off with Young, 31, because he cheated on her with his former girlfriend — and mother to Young's 4-year-old son, Nick, Jr. — who is now allegedly pregnant with their second child, People reports.

Another one of Azalea's tweets revealed that she had no knowledge of the pregnancy rumors. "I have never even been told by nick that his baby mother is pregnant so if this is true I'm finding out via E news," she tweeted, referring to an E! News report about the alleged pregnancy.


In a follow-up tweet, the "Fancy" rapper wrote: "This is just like a second shot to the chest. And I feel like I don't even know who the hell it is I've been loving all this time."

According to People, Young has not yet commented publicly on the pregnancy rumors.

Just last week, Azalea announced their split via Instagram. "Unfortunately although I love Nick and have tried and tried to rebuild my trust in him — it's become apparent in the last few weeks I am unable to." She went on to share that she has nothing but love for her ex, stating, "I genuinely wish Nick the best. It's never easy to part ways with the person you've planned your entire future with, but futures can be rewritten and as of today mine is a blank page."

The New York Post reported that the Australian rapper was unable to regain her trust in her fiancé after he was secretly caught on video by his teammate D'Angelo Russel while talking about his relations with other women.
