Iggy Azalea did not have a “dinner date” with Nick Young on Sunday, despite a report. In fact, she didn’t have dinner with her former fiance at all. Gossip Cop can help set the record straight.
“Forgive and forget? Iggy Azalea enjoys dinner date with former fiance Nick Young… 18 months after their romance ended amid cheating scandal,” reads a headline from the Daily Mail. According to the British tabloid, the rapper “appeared to have forgiven” Young for his infidelity “as she was spotted enjoying dinner with him in West Hollywood on Sunday night.” As evidence, the paper’s site features separate paparazzi photos of Azalea and the basketball player outside the popular restaurant Craig’s.
Azalea and Young were not pictured together, but the outlet jumped to the conclusion that because they were both photographed at the same establishment, they must’ve been dining together. That was the wrong assumption, and the music star understandably doesn’t appreciate such falsehoods being spread about her. Azalea tweeted on Monday morning, “The unfortunate thing about LA is there are not that many places people eat. You can be in the middle of one of the most important dinner meetings of your life; and randomly your ex and all his friends walk in the same place.”
She went on to address the writer of the article, tweeting, “Ryan Smith @ TheDailyMail i hope all your christmas gifts contain boxes of dried up chips of dog [expletive] for trying to imply i would EVER, EVER have a dinner date with my ex who created a full human behind my back.” Azalea continued, “Especially when he came 3 whole hours after i did with 10 other ppl. Please leave me the [expletive] alone to live my life in peace. Its awkward enough as it is. Ryan Smith i curse you to have your hot chocolate replaced with a full cup of diarrhea for the next 5 winters.”
After retweeting a gif of a person literally being dragged, Azalea added, “Ryan Smith i hope all your candy canes break before you get to take them out of the wrapper for the rest of your life. Ryan Smith of the daily mail; i curse you to cut your finger open deeply every year on a broken christmas ornament.” She further said, “Anyway… Hope everyones good. I wish everyone (not you Ryan) a Merry Christmas and a happy New Year (I hope Ryan vomits on his own [expletive] before the fireworks tho).”
At the time of this writing, the Daily Mail has not updated its inaccurate story, nor has HollywoodLife, which bought what the UK publication was selling. The webloid announced, “Iggy Azalea Reunites For Dinner With Ex Nick Young 1.5 Years After She Caught Him Cheating.” The blog obviously failed to fact-check, declaring, “[Azalea’s] ready to bury the hatchet — the exes even grabbed dinner together on Dec. 17.” HollywoodLies, as it’s known, is clearly deserving of Azalea’s wrath next.
Gossip Cop has determined this story is totally false.
