Teyana Taylor and NBA Star Iman Shumpert: A Timeline of Their Relationship
Teyana Taylor and Iman Shumpert’s relationship was nothing but net prior to their 2023 separation.
The Masked Singer season 7 champ and the professional basketball player first crossed paths at a 2011 party — though Taylor was not interested in a potential romance at the time.
The duo’s friendship soon evolved into a romantic connection by 2014. One year later, the Brooklyn Nets athlete proposed.
Taylor and Shumpert — who share daughters Iman “Junie” Tayla Jr., born in 2015, and Rue Rose, born in 2020 — remained each other’s No. 1 cheerleaders as their careers continued to rise.
“I’m too secure in my s–t to be worrying about that,” Taylor exclusively told Us Weekly in October 2021 when asked about Shumpert’s Dancing With the Stars chemistry with pro partner Daniella Karagach. “We have to do movies and TV shows, and I have a love interest and stuff like that — it’s just part of the job. I honestly think that their chemistry is amazing.”
Shumpert — who won season 30 of DWTS — and Taylor ultimately separated two years later.
