Nobody saw this one coming! Teyana Taylor and her husband, Iman Shumpert, have separated after 10 years together.
The singer made the shocking announcement on Instagram Sunday (Sept. 17) under a throwback photo of the two having fun with one another. “AHT AHT! Not too much on my bestie!” she began. “In all fairness, Iman and I are separated and have been for a while. To be 1000 percent clear, ‘infidelity’ ain’t one of the reasons for our departure. We are still the best of friends, great business partners, and are one hell of a team when it comes to co-parenting our two beautiful children.”
The A Thousand and One star continued, “Most importantly, we are FAMILY [and] in the 10 [years] together, seven [years] married we ain’t ever played with or about THAT. We just keep y’all a**es out the group chat lol, which is the reason we’ve been able to successfully and peacefully separate without all of the outside noise. The only reason I’m even sharing THIS part of the chat is because the narratives are getting a little out of hand and it’s unfair to all parties involved. I hope this provided some clarity for y’all. Okay, AunTey taking y’all back out the chat, bye!” Check out the post below.
The “Bare Wit Me” hitmaker and the former NBA player got married in 2016, after announcing their engagement at Taylor’s baby shower in 2015 when she was pregnant with their first child. The pair share two daughters together, Iman “Junie” Tayla Shumpert Jr., 7, and Rue Rose Shumpert, 3.
Although Taylor and Iman were often public with their romance, they have not attended any events together in months. Back in June, the Harlem native posted a heartfelt birthday message to the 33-year-old on Instagram. “Your birthday will always be one of my favorite days… Because on this day 33 years ago, a super dope human being was born. My Bestfriend, my husband, my children’s dad, my other half. Crazy how ya bday feels like my day ’cause [you’re] a gift. One of the greatest gifts I’ve ever received. Happy bday, king!” Taylor wrote.
