The “Fancy” hitmaker has admitted she instantly disliked the Los Angeles Lakers basketball player at their first meeting.
However, sparks flew between the two after a friend told the 25-year-old that she had been sent a flattering tweet by the sportsman, reports femalefirst.co.uk.
While Azalea admits she didn’t like him and his friends at first, she insists everything has worked out for the best.
“I hated all of them. And now I love all of them. When I figured it out, I think I was already in love with him. So it worked out! Lucky I didn’t remember him, because we wouldn’t have got the opportunity for a second chance,” Azalea was quoted by the Daily Telegraph newspaper as saying.
