It’s only been seven months since we first learned that Iggy Azalea and French Montana were dating, but it looks like the couple has already called it quits.
It’s surprising in the sense that French and Iggy were talking marriage at one point,
But it’s less surprising when you consider the rappers tumultuous romantic histories.
Iggy dumped Nick Young just a few months before making her relationship with French social media official.
It certainly wasn’t her fault that the engagement failed, as Nick boasted about cheating on her in a video posted online by his Los Angeles Lakers teammate, D’Angelo Russell.
Breaking it off with Nick was unquestionably the right thing to do, but with the benefit of hindsight, it seems clear that Iggy’s next relationship wouldn’t have much of a chance.
Rebounds are always rough, and French and Iggy’s situation was exacerbated by a number of factors:
They moved too fast; they were both fresh from serious relationships, and the whole situation was playing out in the public eye.
Iggy’s not a massive star at this point – in fact, she seems destined to serve as a punchline on some future I Love Whaterver the Hell We’re Gonna Call the First half of This Decade episode – but her breakup was the stuff of tabloid legend.
In addition to the cheating boast, Young got his ex pregnant while he was still with Iggy.
She took to social media to say that even that wasn’t the final straw, and she only broke off the engagement after she saw security camera footage of Nick bringing other women back to their apartment.
So you would think that French Montana – who allegedly cheated on Khloe Kardashian – wouldn’t be Iggy’s first choice when it came time to re-enter the dating pool.
There’s no word yet on what caused Montana and Azalea to call it quits, but not suriprisingly, the leading theory is that French was caught cheating.
Spurring the speculation is the fact that Iggy moved on with the quickness, already allegedly hooking up with 19-year-old hip hop producer LJay Currie.
The pair was spotted getting handsy with one another in Cabo San Lucas over the weekend.
We’re fine with Iggy finding herself a new dude so quickly – we’re just hoping the fact that he’s a producer doesn’t mean she has more music on the way.
