Last Wednesday, a little more than a week after Iggy Azalea revealed that she had called off her engagement to Nick Young on Instagram, Life & Style released a shocking report indicating that Iggy had broken up with Young after he got his ex-girlfriend Keonna Green—the mother of his 4-year-old son Nick Jr.—pregnant. Iggy later denied the report and tweeted about how she had no idea that Green was pregnant, but as it turns out, Green is pregnant with Young’s second child, and she’s about 22 weeks pregnant at this point.
Over the last week, there has been a lot of speculation about the possibility of Green doing an interview with a tabloid about the whole situation, and on Wednesday morning, Us Weekly published the first interview Green has done since the initial report about her pregnancy hit. During the interview, Green talked about how she first met Young—she was the captain of the cheerleading team in high school, while he was the captain of the basketball team—and also touched on the recent drama surrounding the couple. Scroll down to read a few of the most interesting tidbits from the interview.
On how Green first found out Young was dating Iggy:
I found out through TMZ [in 2013] that they were dating. I inquired and there was denial. We had a rough patch from there. A couple of months into them being an item, she was moving into the house, so I called her. When I was dropping my son off, we met in the living room. I didn't want my son around somebody I'm uncomfortable with. I said, "Please, out of respect, don't post photos of my son." I didn't want people thinking I'm not in his life. She was like, "I completely get it." Reality set in that me and Nick were over.
On how she reconnected with Young in 2015 after he was engaged to Iggy three months earlier:
It was last year, around September. We would take our son to Magic Mountain together. But sometimes Nick would say, "Oh, there’s too much traffic," and he’d just play with Nicholas in his room. We got caught up in the moment and it just happened. I would be like, "Nick, you cannot be sloppy. You need to be honest [with Azalea]." He would say, "I don’t want to hear it." I don’t know what was going on in his household, but me and Nick have lots of history. It wasn’t a secret on my end.
On how she learned she was pregnant again:
I was having extreme back pain very early in the pregnancy, so I went to the doctor, who said, "There’s nothing wrong with your back, but you’re pregnant." It was 200 percent Nick’s child. He’s always supportive, but he was in shock. With him being in a public relationship, he didn’t know how to handle it. We didn’t get into [how he would tell Azalea]. I felt it was his decision how to handle it.
On how she didn’t feel guilty after learning about Young and Iggy’s split:
I didn’t feel guilty...I’m not the reason they separated. She found out what everyone else found out, according to what I’ve been told.
On what she would tell Iggy if she could talk to her now:
I wish her a lifetime of success...I mean, I’m definitely not going to apologize for being in love with a man who I have a lot of history with. I do wish her that kind of success and hope that she can get through this difficult time and she and Nick can move forward from this.
