Rapper Iggy Azalea has confirmed rumors she's dating football player DeAndre Hopkins.

The Fancy hitmaker let slip the fact she was romancing another sports star while taking part in a game of True or False during an appearance on Miami, Florida's Y100 radio station this week.

After initially answering a few questions about her past, the host then switched up the game and had the Australian star choose between NFL teams the Miami Dolphins or the Houston Texans – the franchise Hopkins is currently signed to.

Iggy immediately picked the Texans and acknowledged the direction the conversation was heading in, as she was asked outright if she was dating the wide receiver.

"Yeah, we're in a relationship," she responded.

Her remarks emerged days after Instagram followers noticed the pair openly flirting online.

"My Aussies call me a legend," the sportsman wrote in one post from 2 August, when Iggy commented, "I could think of a few other things to call you."

"Are you her boyfriend?" asked one fan, to which Hopkins replied, "yes Indeed."

Iggy also made it clear they were a couple after referring to Hopkins as "my man" in another remark to a fellow Instagram user.

It appears the busty blonde only began dating Hopkins in the past month, as Iggy brushed off claims linking her to fellow rapper Tyga, who features on her latest song Kream, in early July.

"(I'm) extremely single," she told E! News at the time, as she laughed off the gossip.

Hopkins isn't the first professional athlete Iggy has dated – she was engaged to basketball star Nick Young, but dumped him in 2016 after she caught him cheating.

She recently confessed to setting fire to much of Young's designer wardrobe after the messy split.

"I burned it all, darling!" Iggy shared during a March appearance on TV show Watch What Happens Live. "I burned a lot, and I threw stuff into the pool too."
