Teyana Taylor has confirmed her divorce from her husband Iman Shumpert. The singer provided an update on the couple’s relationship on Sunday (Sept. 17).
“In all fairness, Iman and I are separated and have been for a while,” Taylor said in an Instagram post. “To be absolutely clear, ‘infidelity’ was not one of the reasons for our departure.”
She added, “We are still the best of friends, great business partners and are one hell of a team when it comes to co-parenting our 2 beautiful children. Most importantly we are FAMILY & in the 10yrs together, 7yrs married we ain’t ever played with or about THAT.”
The singer and former NBA player wed in October 2016, after announcing their engagement at Taylor’s baby shower in November 2015, when she was pregnant with their first child, Junie.
Junie was born in December 2015, unexpectedly delivered by Shumpert himself in the couple’s toilet, and Rue will be due in September 2020.
Taylor stated why they’d kept the split private in her note on Sunday. “We just keep y’all asses out of the group chat haha, which is why we were able to safely and quietly separate without all of the outside noise, she said. “The only reason I’m even sharing THIS part of the chat is because the narratives are getting a little out of hand & it’s unfair to all parties involved. I hope this provided some clarity for y’all.”
