Iggy Azalea has not broken up with Nick Young, despite a number of webloid reports that have wrongly speculated the two split, based on the singer not wearing her engagement ring out in public. Azalea set the record straight on Monday night, tweeting “I haven’t broken up with Nick.”

TMZ has led the charge with the false reporting. On Wednesday, under a headline that read, “It DO Mean a Thing … If You Don’t Wear That Ring,” the webloid wrote that the Azalea’s claims she giving her basketball-playing fiance a second chance “lacks a ring of truth.” The site noted the singer was spotted leaving the iHeartRadio station in Atlanta “not wearing her engagement ring.”

Then on Saturday, under a headline of “FAMILIAR RING NOW UNFAMILIAR,” the webloid declared, “It no longer seems like a fluke” that the singer has “shelved her engagement ring.” The outlet added, “Until the whole Nick Young thing surfaced, the ring was a fixture. Seems like case closed.”

But TMZ is wrong, says Azalea. In back-to-back tweets, she wrote, “For the record, i havent broken up with Nick. We are together and i would love to be given a little (a lot) of privacy on the matter.” She added in the follow-up message, “I always answer questions honestly. But my job is to promote my music, not my relationship. Id love to be interviewed about the former only.”

As Gossip Cop reported, Azalea said in a recent radio interview, she’ll cut off Young’s penis if he cheats on her moving forward. After a video leaked showing Young telling his Los Angeles Lakers teammate D’Angelo Russell about him hooking up with an unnamed 19-year-old girl, the singer said on “Orlando & The Freakshow” she’s “not cool” with Young screwing around on the road. Azalea also told the hosts that she warned Young, “You will have half a penis. I already said, ‘Just one more video. One more thing and you will lose a quarter of your meat.’”
