Teyana Taylor Says Husband Was Jealous Of Her In Divorce Docs

In September, fans learned that Teyana Taylor and Iman Shumpert were separated from Teyana herself. Then, just one day before Thanksgiving, new details about their split and seven-year marriage have surfaced.

According to multiple outlets, including TMZ,  Page Six, and Complex, Taylor secretly filed for divorce in January using their initials. In the court docs, she reportedly accuses the father of her two daughters, Junie and Rue, of being a jealous narcissist.

She says their marriage, which began in 2016, is “irretrievably broken.” Teyana is seeking temporary and permanent primary physical custody and joint legal custody plus child support in Georgia.

Teyana Taylor Reportedly Filed & Withdrew Divorce Petition Last Year

TMZ reports that January wasn’t the first time Teyana filed for divorce. She reportedly felt “manipulated and controlled” by Iman and filed in response. However, she had her legal team pull the filing one day later.

By the time she reportedly filed again in January, she had been “unable to handle the emotional rollercoaster,” per TMZ.

According to TMZ’s sources, Iman Shumpert recently responded to her January filing. In his court docs, he reportedly listed their full names — rather than their initials as she had done. That choice reportedly made their private business very public.

Teyana Says Iman Was Jealous Of Her Fame And Career

As for what led to the divorce, Teyana’s filing claims Iman exhibited jealousy about his wife’s fame and felt insecure as her husband.

She said these issues have happened throughout the years, including in 2015, when he signed a $40 million NBA contract. She says he remained jealous about her relevancy despite being the higher-paid spouse in the relationship. Iman has also reportedly sent her negative text messages about her fame and got aggravated when paps sought solo pictures of Teyana.

Taylor claims her estranged husband would pick fights, including on special occasions like her birthday, and later apologize. The star says she tried to remedy their marriage by “intentionally [dimming] her light,” including turning down recording opportunities and acting roles. She also reportedly tried supporting Iman’s Hollywood dreams by using her connection to land him gigs.

Still, Teyana Taylor alleges none of it was enough. Iman allegedly “remained in an insecure state as his NBA career continued to wind down.” He reportedly reacted to her efforts with “further cruel treatment and selfishness,” including cheating scandals.

Taylor Says She Was Being “Graceful” In Her Initial Statement, Iman Seemingly Reacts

According to TMZ, Teyana says she was being “graceful” in her September statement when she denied their separation involved infidelity.

Looking back on their marriage, Teyana’s filing says Iman treated her “cruelly and [displayed] extreme narcissistic behavior throughout the majority of their marriage.” 

Taylor also reportedly revealed that Iman left their family home in October and hasn’t spent significant time with Junie and Rue since.

Though she hasn’t publicly commented on the divorce filing details, Iman shared a cryptic post on Instagram early Thanksgiving Day. The post features a viral photo of Joe Budden looking at his phone.
