Teyana Taylor secretly filed to divorce Iman Shumpert, accuses him of being a jealous narcissist

Teyana Taylor secretly filed for divorce from her estranged husband, Iman Shumpert, in January.

According to court documents obtained by TMZ on Wednesday, the singer accused the former NBA player of being a jealous and emotionally abusive narcissist who was insecure about her fame.

Taylor claimed that Shumpert treated her cruelly and displayed extreme narcissistic behavior throughout their marriage.

Taylor — who wed Shumpert in 2016 — decided to end their marriage earlier this year because she was “unable to handle the emotional rollercoaster,” per the outlet.


She also claimed she received “condescending and manipulative” messages from the retired athlete about her career.

As he “became more and more angry,” she even “began to intentionally dim her light for her husband to try to have a harmonious and peaceful marriage,” the documents state, per TMZ.

She also alleged that he would get annoyed when they attended public events together because photographers would ask him to step aside and take solo pictures of her.

Taylor further stated that she turned down several work opportunities because Shumpert did not want her to work, despite him making more money than her.


She alleged he “became more and more angry” about her career growth over time.

Ultimately, Taylor claimed the bickering led her to start the divorce process in 2021 — the same year Shumpert officially retired from the NBA.

While his time off helped them reconcile, it was only temporary because she claimed he “remained in an insecure state as his NBA career continued to wind down.”


Taylor also claimed she would receive “condescending and manipulative” messages from the Cleveland Cavaliers alum.
