Nick Young's pregnant ex refuses to apologise 'for being in love'

The mother of Nick Young's second child has refused to apologise for being "in love" with the NBA star.

Keonna Green, who is 22 weeks pregnant with the athlete's child, has admitted that although she is no longer intimate with Iggy Azalea's ex, she would would be willing to give their relationship another try.

Recalling their romance, which occurred while Nick was still with the rap star, Keonna - who already has a four-year-old son with the basketball star, called Nick Jr - said: "We got caught up in the moment and it just happened. I would be like, 'Nick, you cannot be sloppy. You need to be honest [with Azalea].' He would say, 'I don't want to hear it.'

"I don't know what was going on in his household, but me and Nick have lots of history. It wasn't a secret on my end. I didn't feel guilty because I was in love with a man, and I'm pretty sure I'm not the only woman."

Nick and Iggy began dating in 2014 and got engaged June 2015.

However, their relationship collapsed earlier this year when a video surfaced of Nick allegedly admitting to cheating on the Australian.

Despite the controversy surrounding Nick, Keonna has defended him, explaining: "He's actually a very caring guy. It's a lot of things that people can see, people can see his personality through basketball.

"He has great parents who raised him to respect women. He just can't help the type of field that he's in, so of course he's going to attract a lot of women."

And Keonna, who claims they rekindled their romance in September last year, three months after he proposed to Azalea, admitted she has endured a turbulent relationship with the musician.

She told Us Weekly: "I found out through TMZ [in 2013] that they were dating. I inquired and there was denial. We had a rough patch from there.

"A couple of months into them being an item, she was moving into the house, so I called her. When I was dropping my son off, we met in the living room. I didn't want my son around somebody I'm uncomfortable with. I said, 'Please, out of respect, don't post photos of my son.'

"I didn't want people thinking I'm not in his life. She was like, 'I completely get it.' Reality set in that me and Nick were over. She was in the house I used to stay in. I cried on my way home."
