Amber Rose Lends Her Support to Iggy Azalea After Nick Young Split: 'Now You Can Be a Hoe'
By Raphael Chestang
Amber Rose is giving Iggy Azalea advice following the Australian rapper's split from former fiancé, NBA player Nick Young.
"My heart goes out to you," Rose posted to Instagram on Friday. "I have been through heartbreak as well so I know what ur going through. Stay strong and keep ur head up. My Rosebuds and I support you and we think ur AMAZING!!! Not only beautiful but extremely talented!"
On Thursday, Azalea tweeted that she broke up with Young after catching him having an affair. There have also been rumors that Young is expecting his second child with his ex, but if you let Rose tell it, that's not all bad news.
"The misconception -- and I still hear this seven years later, to this day -- is, 'You're only famous for Kanye,'" said Rose, who dated the "Famous" rapper from 2008 to 2010. "Initially, absolutely. In 2009, when they're like, 'Amber Rose - Kanye's girlfriend,' I was like, 'OK, that's pretty accurate. That's what it is.'"
"Everything I've done since then is my own doing, and I've worked my f**king a** off for everything I have," she added. "But Wendy Williams put Charlamagne [Tha God] on. Jay Z put Kanye on! But they don't do that to men, and they always want to diminish my accomplishments and put them on someone else when I work really hard."
