Teyana Taylor secretly files for divorce from Iman Shumpert, cites his jealous behaviour as reason


Teyana Taylor has secretly filed for divorce from husband Iman Shumpert in January.

According to the court documents obtained by TMZ, the singer has accused the former NBA star of being a jealous emotional abuser who was insecure about her fame.

She has claimed that her ex has treated her cruelly and displayed extreme narcissistic behavior for the majority part of their marriage.


Taylor, who got married to Iman in 2016, decided to end her marriage as she was “unable to handle the emotional rollercoaster.”

She allegedly also been the recipient of “condescending and manipulative” text messages about her career from the retired athlete.

The outlet added that as per the documents, the singer at one point tried to “dim her light for her husband” so they could have harmonious and peaceful marriage life. This was due to Iman becoming “more and more angry.”

The ‘Coming 2 America’ actress also claimed that her husband would get annoyed when the photographers would ask him to step aside to click her solo pictures, at public event they attend together.

She also alleged that due to her estranged husband, she had to turn down many work opportunities, as he did not want her to work.
