There is no NBA basketball happening outside of unbearably unwatchable Summer League games so Los Angeles Lakers’
shooting guard Nick Young is now using his time to speak out for his girlfriend. In a recent interview, Young admits that Azaela was negatively affected by the backlash she received after Nicki Minaj’s acceptance speech at last month’s BET Awards.
During her acceptance speech after winning the Best Female Rapper award for the fifth straight year, Minaj remarked that “when you hear Nicki Minaj spit, Nicki Minaj wrote it” and thanked BET for honoring authenticity. While Azaela posted on her personal Instagram account that she was “unbothered by anything that happened at the BET Awards”, her boyfriend says different to New York Daily News:
I had to deal with the aftermath of all that. When she came home and was going through her phones, hearing everybody talking trash about her. I had to be there for her.
On July 2nd, Minaj posted on her personal Twitter account that she has “congratulated Iggy on the success of Fancy, publicly. She should be very proud of that. All the women nominated should b proud.”
