Australian rapper Iggy Azalea was once engaged to the NBA's Nick Young. Now, she is apparently dating another star athlete: Houston Texans superstar wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins.

Fans noticed the two flirting in the comments of Instagram posts on their page over the last few days.

In a post a few days ago, Hopkins put up a picture from practice with the caption "My Aussies call me a legend."

This went down in the comments:

Another fan asked DeAndre Hopkins if he is Iggy Azalea's boyfriend.

He confirmed it in response. A Brazilian Iggy fan page has a screengrab of the interaction:

The site Sports Gossip also has screengrabs of the same back-and-forth.

In another comment above, Azalea calls Hopkins "her man," so it seems like this is official.

Hopefully this goes better than her most famous relationship with a star athlete. The engagament with Young famously dissolved after his former Lakers teammate D'Angelo Russell secretly recorded him admitting to cheating on the rapper.

Last year, Azalea was connected to another star wide receiver: Giants standout Odell Beckham. She has since denied that the two were ever dating.
