In recent months, several high-profile Hollywood couples have shocked fans by announcing their separations. The list includes Joe Jonas and Sophie Turner, Jeezy and Jeannie Mai, and Hugh Jackman and Deborra-Lee Furness. The latest to join this list are Teyana Taylor and Iman Shumpert, causing a stir among fans who looked up to them as relationship goals.
On September 17, Teyana announced their separation via a post on her official Instagram page. The couple, who tied the knot in 2016, share two daughters, Iman “Junie” Tayla Shumpert Jr. and Rue Rose Shumpert. While Teyana did not specify whether the separation would lead to a divorce, she emphasized that they remain good friends.
Teyana’s full statement is as follows:
“Stop! Don’t say too much about my best friend! To set the record straight, Iman and I have been separated for some time. Infidelity is not one of the reasons for our split. We remain the best of friends, excellent business partners, and a fantastic team when it comes to co-parenting our two beautiful children. Above all, we are FAMILY. In our 10 years together, 7 of which we were married, we have never taken that lightly. We’ve always kept you all out of our group chat, which is why we’ve been able to separate peacefully without any outside interference. The only reason I’m sharing this part of our lives is because the narratives are getting out of hand and it’s unfair to all parties involved. I hope this clears things up for you all. Now, I’m taking you back out of the chat. Bye!”
