Iggy Azalea's fiance Nick Young settles sex assault lawsuit

Iggy Azalea's fiance Nick Young has settled a lawsuit accusing the basketball star of sexual assault.

The Los Angeles Lakers player hit headlines in 2011 after a woman claimed the sportsman had slipped a drug into her drink while partying at a bar in Hollywood, and then took her back to his home, where she alleged she was raped.

Police launched an investigation into the accusations, but subsequently dropped the case against Young amid concerns over discrepancies in the alleged victim's story.

The female, whose identity has not been released, filed suit in 2013 and demanded $3 million from Young for emotional distress and lost earnings, but he refused to pay up so he could continue fighting to clear his name.

However, both parties have since agreed to settle the suit and the court case has been dismissed. The terms of the deal have been kept confidential, according to TMZ.com.

Young appears to be following in his fiancee's footsteps to rid themselves of any drama ahead of their planned 2016 wedding - Azalea reached a legal settlement with her ex-boyfriend, Maurice Williams, earlier this month (Jul15) over allegations he stole files, including a sex tape of the former couple, from the rapper's personal computer while they were dating.
