Teyana Taylor has confirmed her separation from her husband, Iman Shumpert amidst divorce rumors. The “Rose In Harlem” artist ended the speculations by acknowledging their split but clarifying that infidelity was not a factor.
In an Instagram post on September 17, 2023, Teyana Taylor confirmed her separation from husband Iman Shumpert. She emphasized that despite their split, they remain best friends, excellent business partners, and devoted co-parents to their two beautiful children:
“ AHT AHT! Not too much on my bestie! In all fairness, Iman and I are separated and have been for a while. 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.”
“Most importantly we are FAMILY & in the 10yrs together, 7yrs married we ain’t ever played with or about THAT. We just keep y’all asses out the group chat lol, which is the reason we’ve been able to successfully & 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 & 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!”
The public confirmation of the separation has garnered support and attention from various notable celebrities, such as Keke Palmer and Jill Scott.
Palmer commented, “With grace and class, God bless you and your beautiful family,” while Scott expressed her support for the genuine love and positive energy in Taylor’s family.
Scott commented, “ The love is real and so is the positive energy. I’m rooting for your family’s genuine joy.”
It is worth noting that Iman Shumpert, Taylor’s husband, has not made any significant presence on social media since the announcement. However, despite the separation, Taylor’s message emphasized that both parties have handled the separation successfully and peacefully, choosing to keep private matters out of the public eye.
