After over 7 years of marriage, Iman Shumpert and Teyana Taylor recently called it quits. The two have been separated for a few months, though a recent social media comment has some fans hoping for an unlikely reunion.

Iman Shumpert is a former NBA player who was drafted in the 1st round in 2011. He won an NBA championship with the Cleveland Cavaliers in 2016. He’s also dabbled in rap music outside his NBA career and won the 30th season of Dancing with the Stars.

Meanwhile, Teyana is a singer, songwriter, model, and actress. She has released several albums and appeared in dozens of TV shows and movies. She has also directed music videos under the “Spike Tey” name, and won the BET award for Video Director of the Year on more than one occasion.

The two first met in 2011 but didn’t begin dating until 2013. After a few years of dating, Shumpert proposed to Taylor in 2015 at their baby shower. The couple later married in 2016.

They have two daughters together and the couple also starred in a few reality TV series about their lives together, including Teyana & Iman and We Got Love Teyana & Iman. Unfortunately, things between the two weren’t as great behind the scenes as they may have appeared on TV.

Their Marriage Was “Irretrievably Broken”

In late 2023, the pair announced that they were divorcing and had already been separated for months. Taylor had filed for divorce in January 2023 but attempted to keep it private for the sake of the family.

Court documents obtained by TMZ after the divorce filing say that some of the reasons Teyana sought a divorce were that Shumpert was cruel at times, narcissistic, and even verbally and mentally abusive towards her. Teyana also accused him of cheating on her on multiple different occasions.

She said she turned down acting roles and recording opportunities during the relationship because Shumpert didn’t want her to work. He reportedly became more insecure as his NBA career wound down.

Despite all the drama between them, Iman recently posted a social media comment stating how great Teyana looked at the Met Gala. Though he didn’t name her directly, the wording of his comment didn’t leave a lot of doubt.

The comment could be a relatively innocent observation from Iman, but some believe it’s an attempt to reignite the relationship. Countless fans loved the family together, especially on the show. This comment gives many of them a glimmer of hope that the two could eventually reconcile.

However, Teyana said that their marriage was “irretrievably broken” in the court documents ahead of their divorce, so it remains to be seen what the future has for them.
