On Sunday, the 32-year-old hopped on Instagram to clear the air about Shump living foul. According to Taylor, the couple has been separated for a while, and “infidelity” wasn’t the reason for their split.
Taylor explained they were able to successfully separate because they kept the public out of their business and only revealed what happened because the narratives were getting out of hand.
“AHT AHT! Not too much on my bestie! In all fairness, Iman and I are separated and have been for a while,” she wrote under an image of her and Shump dressed up as the lead characters in the classic film Wayne’s World. “To be 1000% clear, ‘infidelity’ ain’t one of the reasons for our departure. 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. Most importantly we are FAMILY & in the 10yrs together, 7yrs married we ain’t ever played with or about THAT.”
She continued, “We just keep y’all asses out the group chat lol, which is the reason we’ve been able to successfully & peacefully separate without all of the outside noise. 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. I hope this provided some clarity for y’all. Okay AunTey taking y’all back out the chat bye!”
Rumors of infidelity within the once inseparable couple spurred up after footage of a woman wearing a chain similar to Shump’s jewelry surfaced online. Fans also believed to have heard the NBA champion's voice in the background of the video.
The woman explained in the comment section of The Neighborhood Talk’s post of the video that her and Shump are not romantically involved nor was she wearing his chain adding that all his friends have the same one.
“A reach,” she wrote in the comment section. “We are just friends there was a lot of friends there.”
Taylor and Shumpert first met at a party in 2011 and began dating in 2013. They tied the knot in 2016 and have two children, together, Junie and Rue Rose.
