NBA baller D’Angelo Russell is publicly apologizing after he recorded footage of his Lakers team mate Nick Young, admitting that he cheated on his fiancee, rapper Iggy Azalea.
Before Wednesday night’s game, Russell apologized profusely
I feel as sick as possible. I wish I could make things better right away, but I can’t.
Russell claims he did not post the video on social media or share it with friends, so he’s unclear how it leaked,
That’s the two-and-two I’m trying to put together, me and my team. I have no clue how that got out.’’
Responding to reports that he Lakers have isolated him because of the incident, he says,
I know if I’ve lost anybody’s trust, I’m going to work my tail off to gain it back, because that’s something you need for a winning team. You need everybody to trust each other. You need the first guy to trust the 15th guy, and that’s my intentions.
Meanwhile, Young tells reporters,
I don’t want to get into my personal life right now. I think it’s best me and D’Angelo handle the situation we have in a private manner, outside the media. I think it’s something we really do need to sit down and talk about. That’s about it. What happened is what happened. We’ve got to work on it.’
At this point, the damage has been done. The best thing you can do is own up to it. That’s what I did, and I’m owning up to it to full effect, and just taking what comes with it.’
