Nicki Minaj did not leak the video of Nick Young talking about cheating on Iggy Azalea, at least according to Azalea herself.

As Gossip Cop reported, a tape emerged last week of Young talking to Los Angles Lakers team mate D’Angelo Russell about meeting at 19-year-old woman at a club. Young was unaware he was being filmed, and Russell has maintained he had nothing to do with the video coming out. While the footage was taken months ago, rumors have surfaced that Minaj is responsible for its release.

The blog Fameolous, which is being credited for posting the video online, claims Minaj’s camp leaked it to them in retaliation for recent comments Azalea made about her fellow rapper. “Someone claiming to be with @NICKIMINAJ camp got the video & held it. When @IGGYAZALEA took shots at Nicki on Bravo they leaked to us. Facts,” the outlet tweeted. “That’s what happened you can’t twist or change it because we telling you why the video was leaked… A kid could have figured this out. Just look at the timing of the video from when @IGGYAZALEA diss Nicki on Bravo to the video getting leaked.”

The person behind Fameolous even did an interview with ESPN 97.5 explaining the theory, but refused to reveal his name. It also wasn’t said how Minaj’s team supposedly obtained the tape the place in the first place. And Azalea is not buying it.

After the story was brought to her attention by a fan, the Australian star tweeted, “Now that is just foolishness. lol.” The follower wrote back, “Right?! Like what even is that mess.. Just trying to get clicks and hits on their website ffs.” Azalea agreed, replying, “ANY way to twist ANY thing into two females supposedly hating one another. zzzzzz. im sleep tho.”

For her part, Minaj hasn’t commented either way. Russell has insisted he doesn’t know how the footage got out. And Young is said to be considering his legal options. Gossip Cop will continue to have updates.
