Former NBA star Nick Young apparently waited until he was out of the league to formally declare his preference for men.

His female fans were stunned when a viral photo showed the 34-year-old, 6' 7" shooting guard holding hands with a short, bow legged man.

Young also shocked his Instagram followers when he complimented the same man's sexy lips.

Young's nickname is "Swaggy P", which he said is a pseudo-biblical reference to "the Prophet of Swag."

Young was a standout star for the USC Trojans and was selected by the Washington Wizards in the first round of the 2007 NBA draft with the 16th overall pick. He played 5 tumultuous years for the Los Angeles Lakers (2013–2017) and he won an NBA championship with the Golden State Warriors in 2018.

Nothing in Young's personal life gave insight into his hidden lifestyle. He fathered three children - 2 sons and a daughter - with his high school sweetheart Keonna Green. He is a doting dad to his children.

The couple's last two children were born in 2019 and 2016 - the same year he called off his engagement to rapper Izzy Azalea.

Young was caught creeping with other women over the years, but there was no indication that he also slept with men.

Young is the latest sports star to "come out" of the closet after retirement.

Newly engaged NBA free agent Nick Young was spotted on a dinner date with his fiancee Keonna Green at popular restaurant Craig's in West Hollywood. Ever since Nick proposed to his longtime girlfriend on Christmas Day, they have been couples goals.

Keoona looked very happy in a white long sleeved top and cutoff denim shorts flipped inside out under a lace tutu. She accessorized her fun outfit with a pair of boa constrictor snakeskin boots.

Keonna, 29, and Nick, 34, are high school sweethearts. She bore him two children while he shamelessly stepped out with other women such as rapper Iggy Azalea, 29.

Nick, aka "Swaggy P," got engaged to Iggy on his 30th birthday, while Keonna stayed at home with his son.

After Nick and Iggy made headlines on the gossip blogs, they went their separate ways in 2016.

Keonna is best known for her role in Basketball Wives in 2017. She is also an entrepreneur who founded TNK Hair Studios in Los Angeles, CA.

Keonna belongs to a large sorority of long-suffering women who watched their famous men cheat before reluctantly taking them back for the sake of their children. Some of the women even took their men back after they fathered other babies on the side.

The long list of cheaters includes Jay-Z (pictured with LSW Beyonce), Offset, T.I., Big Sean, Swizz Beatz, Waka Flocka, Snoop Dogg, Kevin Hart, Will Smith, Gucci Mane, Dwyane Wade, LL Cool J, Big Boi (Outkast), Travis Scott, Sean Combs, LeBron James, Tristan Thompson, Amar'e Stoudemire, Kobe Bryant, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Shannon Brown, Kevin Hunter, Tiger Woods, Hank Baskett, Herb Vincent, Reggie Bush, Tyrese Gibson, Justin Bieber, Bill Clinton, music producers Stevie J, The-Dream, and many more.

A casually dressed Mariah Carey was spotted at trendy jewelry store XIV Karats, Ltd. in Beverly Hills on Friday. The singer was joined by her security who carried a large briefcase containing her jewelry collection. Rumormongers whispered that the superstar was possibly pawning or trading in some of her fine jewelry because she's going broke. Mariah had better hook up with another billionaire quickly.

L.A. Lakers star Nick Young was removed from the team's active roster prior to the Laker's loss to the Boston Celtics on Sunday.

Lakers Coach Byron Scott said benching Young for the past 11 games was purely a "basketball decision" and nothing to do with Young's highly publicized personal problems off the court.
