Teyana Taylor confirmed Sunday that she and husband Iman Shumpert have separated after seven years of marriage, saying that infidelity was not the cause of the break-up.
The 32-year-old actress-singer took to Instagram Sunday with a long post detailing the major life development involving Shumpert, 33, who she shares two children with – Iman ‘Junie’ Shumpert, seven, and Rue Rose Shumpert, three.
‘AHT AHT! Not too much on my bestie!’ the Harlem, New York native said alongside a shot of the former couple dressed up as the Wayne’s World characters Wayne and Garth. ‘In all fairness, Iman and I are separated and have been for a while.’
The White Men Can’t Jump actress said that cheating was not the cause behind her marriage ending, and that she remains on good terms with the NBA alum.
‘To be 1000% clear, “infidelity” ain’t one of the reasons for our departure,’ Taylor said. ‘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.’

She continued: ‘Most importantly we are FAMILY & in the 10yrs together, 7yrs married we ain’t ever played with or about THAT.’
Taylor said that she and Shumpert were both focused on keeping family matters private, which she said was the reason they were ‘able to successfully & peacefully separate without all of the outside noise.’
She added, ‘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.’
Taylor wrapped up her statement in saying, ‘I hope this provided some clarity for y’all.’
