It’s not a good week for Nick Young.
After a woman accused the basketball player of street harassment, a video of the NBA star allegedly admitting to cheating on fiancéeIggy Azalea with a teenager has surfaced online.
The clip, which was posted on Twitter, shows someone who looks like Young lying in bed talking to a man offscreen about hooking up with a 19-year-old at a club. When the man offscreen asks if he’s ever hooked up with model Amber Rose, he replies, “Nah, she knows my girl.”

The video follows previous accusations that Young and teammate Jordan Clarkson had made “disgustingly vulgar gestures” at Alexis Jones, an activist and public speaker, and her 68-year-old mother at a Los Angeles intersection when the two groups were stopped at a red light.
Jones said she took a video of the incident and shared screenshots on her Instagram, which went viral earlier this week.
“Five minutes ago, at the intersection of Melrose and La [Brea] here in LA, a jeep of four boys pulled up at a red light and started yelling and making the most disgustingly vulgar gestures at my mom and me.” Jones wrote on her Instagram. “I’m angry. I’m insulted. I’m hurt. They were laughing hysterically until they realized I was filming them and immediately they panicked like the cowards they are. Thank you to all the real men out there who would never treat a mother and daughter that way.”
I pray these pics go viral because THIS is the problem with little boys. Five minutes ago, at the intersection of Melrose and La Bre here in LA, a jeep of four boys pulled up at a red light and started yelling and making the most disgustingly vulgar gestures at my mom and me. I rarely “rant” about things but this is the f%+#ing problem and the reason I’ve now dedicated my life to educating young men about respect, not just for women but for everyone. I’m angry. I’m insulted. I’m hurt. They were laughing hysterically until they realized I was filming them and immediately they panicked like the cowards they are. Thank you to all the real men out there who would never treat a mother and daughter that way… Speaking of, I’d love for this to make it back to their mothers!!! Help me find who these guys are!!! Let’s see the power of social media and hold them accountable. I’d LOVE to have a candid conversation with them about sexual harassment not simply to shame them, but to understand their mentality so we can better educate young men to be respectful in the future. #littleboys #cowards #realmenrespectwomen #messedwiththewrongchick #wewillfindyou @iamthatgirl

Young then seemingly replied to the scandal by subtweeting the following message:
I really just hate the fact that ppl can just say anything about a public figure and we as athletes … etc just have to take it

Young’s fiancée also defended him in her latest interview with 92.3 AMP Radio, telling the DJ, “Hey, that’s part of being a basketball player … When people come out and say things, and have their entire [press plan] where they do 700 interviews about the one time you cat-called me out of a car supposedly, to me that takes a bit of the potential authenticity of the story away.”
She added, “I believe my man, and Nick is a super nice guy. This is not the kind of thing he would do.”
Recently, Azalea revealed that her wedding with Young has been postponed “until the end of the next basketball season.” Azalea cited a conflict in her tour dates as the cause for the delay.
“He wants to be … like, ‘I can be a bachelor for longer’ and like, he’s really milking it, he’s really milking the whole thing,” said Azalea. “So he’s really happy. Any time he wants to like, go out with the boys.”
