Our editorial assistant isn’t the only one with a tale of a summer fling gone wrong. According to news in the tweets, Elle Varner And Iman Shumpert have called it quits.
It’s not clear what pushed Elle to share the news on Twitter this morning, but what is obvious is she wanted to make sure the world knew she was back on the market. About three hours ago, she randomly tweeted:
“I’m single….please don’t ask me a million questions I won’t answer any of them.”
Of course we have a million questions!
It was only about four months ago that we even found out these two were an item. Memorial Day weekend, Iman posted a vine video with Elle at the beach and about a month later Elle was gushing over her new boo thang to Hip Hollywood. She told the site of her new relationship:
“[Iman’s] awesome. We’ve been friends for such a long time. Of all the guys that I’ve met throughout being in the limelight he’s the one guy that really stuck it out and built a friendship with me, and it meant a lot, so we’re happy. I’m glad I’m not hiding it anymore, it was a lot of work.
“We’ve been dating a minute. We were on our Jay and Bey tip. That’s the funny thing. We would be out all the time. It just one day showed up in a blog.
“I knew it was going to happen eventually. Just live your life and whatever happens, happens. That’s my thing.”
With Elle staying mum on details of the breakup, it’s at least comforting to know there’s “no drama.” Though some would point out that with Iman being a basketball player for the New York Knicks a split was inevitable, but at 23 and 24, it’s hard for any couple to make a relationship last — especially one in the spotlight.
Here’s to hoping things work out better for the two the next time around!
