Iggy Azalea and Nick Young have broken their year-long engagement three months after the basketball player sparked reports of alleged cheating.

The Australian rapper made the announcement on her official Instagram page and cited "trust" issues.

She wrote: "Unfortunately although I love Nick and have tried to rebuild my trust in him - it's become apparent in the last few weeks I am unable to. I genuinely wish Nick the best. It's never easy to part ways with the person you planned you're (sic) entire future with, but futures can be rewritten and as of today mine is a blank page."

Sports star Nick also confirmed his status on Twitter with the word: "Single".

A couple of months ago, a video surfaced which appeared to show the Los Angeles Lakers star talking about other women. The video, which quickly went viral in March, was accidentally leaked online. Asked about the content during a press conference, Young, 31, said: "What happened is what happened."

Speculation about Iggy and Nick's relationship intensified when the 26-year-old was pictured without her engagement ring when she uploaded photos to Instagram of a holiday taken with friends.

In happier days, the basketball ace popped the question during his 30th birthday party. He presented the Black Widow rapper with a diamond engagement ring valued at 500,000 US dollars (£250,000).

The proposal was caught on camera by their friend, Karen Civil, who shared the clip on Twitter.

Iggy showed off her bling ring, designed by Nick, on Instagram.

"Happiest Day #Isaidyes," she wrote, adding: "Love you @swaggyp1."

The couple had been dating since around October 2013.
