Looks like Nicki Minaj‘s shady acceptance speech at the 2014 BET Awards got the best of Iggy Azalea. The Australian rapper’s boyfriend, NBA player Nick Young, revealed that he had to lift her spirits after indirectly being called out for not writing her own raps.
“I had to deal with the aftermath of all that,” the Los Angeles Laker player told the New York Daily News during the ESPYS. “When she came home and was going through her phones, hearing everybody talking trash about her. I had to be there for her.”
Although Nicki later denied that she was talking about Iggy during her speech, Young believes that Nicki is jealous.
“Iggy is doing big things and that is what is scaring people,” said Young. “She is going to brush it off. She won’t let it get to her. She is number one — what can you do? She’s at the top right now, so of course they are going to come at you.’
