After news circulated of Teyana Taylor and Iman Shumpert’s divorce, the singer has decided to break her silence. 

Over the weekend, Taylor took to social media to share a statement about the matter.

In a tweet, she captioned the statement “This will be the FIRST and LAST time I speak on this matter.”

“I mind my business, don’t bother nobody & y’all know I’ve never played about my children, family & our privacy,” Taylor began. “I have not spoken on this private matter to any media outlets or blogs etc.”

“So everyone claiming ‘Teyana said’ didn’t get any statements directly from ME,” she continued. “These statements were taken from private court documents that were leaked to the public. It is very heartbreaking that someone would take out the time to make such a private matter public for the world to see.”

Taylor and Shumpert share two daughters, whom the public has loved for their large and adorable personalities.

“Please if y’all love y’all play nieces Junie & Rue like y’all have shown, please allow my self & my family some privacy to resolve this matter in peace,” she concluded. “Love y’all.”

TMZ broke the news of the divorce two days prior to her statement. It came after Taylor confirmed in September that she and Shumpert had been separated.

“In all fairness, Iman and I are separated and have been for a while,” she wrote in an Instagram post. “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,” the singer added.
