Teyana Taylor’s Instagram Lights Up With Radiant Selfie Amid Iman Shumpert Split

A breakup between Teyana Taylor and Iman Shumpert is likely the last thing pop culture fanatics thought about putting on their 2023 bingo card, but here it is, unfolding in front of our eyes. Unlike other messy celebrity separations that play out all through the tabloids and on social media, the creative and the athlete have managed to go their separate ways quietly. In her statement over the weekend, Taylor made it clear that there's no bad blood between her and Shumpert. Interestingly, he was recently accused of cheating on her before the world knew about their split.

"AHT AHT! Not too much on my bestie!" she wrote yesterday (September 17) while sharing the sad news as playfully as possible. "To be 1000% 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 2 beautiful children," the "Rose in Harlem" hitmaker further clarified. At the end of her explanation, Teyana understandably said that she's taking fans out of the group chat again.
