The picture in question appeared on the "Ass Pics and Vines" Twitter page on Wednesday night, and shows the backside of a nude woman with a young man in front of her. It is captioned "Iggy Azalea and Nick Young from the Lakers," and the shot went viral after its release.
News of the photo got back to Azalea and Young themselves, and the couple both posted tweets to deny they took the picture.
"That was cute guys," the 23-year-old singer wrote on her Twitter. "Try again soon. Better luck next time n all that."
Young, a 28-year-old basketball player for the Lakers, also denied involvement.

A young woman who calls herself "Kitten Chloe" has since stepped forward and claimed the picture is of her. Azalea retweeted the admission, and several fans have thanked Chloe for taking responsibility.
