Way to throw your teammate under the bus, dude. Nick Young’s fidelity to fiancée Iggy Azalea was already on the line, but now that he’s supposedly admitted to straying in a secretly taped video reportedly captured by fellow Lakers player D’Angelo Russell, a whole Pandora’s box of trouble has been ripped open.

With the TV blaring in the background (set to the E! channel, talking about the Kardashians and Gigi Hadid, because #inescapable), an alleged Young, a.k.a. Swaggy P, answers questions from Russell about his dalliances. When asked who his “youngest bitch” has been, he confirms that he “was 30, she was 19.” Thing is—Young is 30 right now, and has been engaged to Azalea since his 30th birthday party last June. Oops!

At the end of the film, a purported Russell says, “I’m glad you told my video all that.” According to TMZ, Russell didn’t leak the tape, but he’s still persona non grata around Lakers HQ. Sure, the vid could be fake, but the fact that his teammates and Azalea are taking it so seriously suggests otherwise. As an L.A. Daily News reporter tweeted, “Russell just walked out of the Lakers’ practice facility with some security guards.”

For her part, Azalea tweeted earlier today, “hmmm i see D Angelo Russell is trending… I actually liked his film. Thanks bro.”
