Teyana Taylor and Iman Shumpert have half on more than a baby—they have also been collaborating musically.
Sunday, Shumpert debuted the music video for his latest track “Promised,” which features his R&B-singing fiancée. On the rap track, which the Cleveland Cavaliers guard says is about keeping his “promise” to the people he loves, was recorded a year and a half ago.
“The crazy thing about it is when I was writing it, I was speaking figuratively,” said the 25-year-old. “Teyana didn’t add her part until right before the playoffs last year.”
A very pregnant Taylor stars in the video alongside Shumpert.
“With everything that was going on it just started to line up in my mind, I kind of envisioned what was happening and timed it up accordingly,” he explained.
Check out the video below. Let us know your thoughts.
Over the weekend, we reported that Iman Schumpert and Teyana Taylor got engaged. Yay!
Teyana posted photos of herself posing with the ring, as most newly engaged women do. And that was certainly proof enough.
But there’s nothing like seeing that special moment when a woman realizes the man she loves is about to ask her to spend the rest of their lives together.
Teyana recently posted the moment on her Instagram page. Check it out in the video below.
After dating for over a year and announcing their pregnancy in September, parents-to-be, Teyana Taylor and Iman Shumpert are now engaged.
Last night (Nov. 7), Taylor’s baby shower at Cleveland’s Museum of Contemporary Art turned into a surprise engagement party when her NBA beau got down on one knee asking for her hand in marriage. And of course, the “Maybe” singer immediately said yes.
🌹 "Before your love baby I was muddy So deep with pain till you took it from me/ You showered me with a new beginning Now I'm clean/ Took me by surprise when you ran up on me, I came to life baby in that moment/ You put your hands on my heart and baby now it beats" Thank You @imanshumpert for putting the color back in my life! I love you so much 🌹 & thank you @monicabrown for those beautiful lyrics. You spoke to my soul girl! 😘
So now in addition to a burgeoning bundle of joy a.k.a. Iman Tayla Shumpert Jr., Teyana has a huge ruby red engagement ring on her finger.
Congratulations to Teyana and Iman on starting their own family!
This week was full of surprises, from pregnancies to shade.
Two celebrity couples announced that they're expecting out of nowhere: Ne-yo and his lady Crystal, whom he also recently proposed to, and Teyana Taylor and Iman Shumpert. Unfortunately another issue that came out of nowhere was James Bond author Anthony Horowitz declaring Idris Elba "too street" to play the 007 lead. What do you make of all of these tales? Watch and weigh in with the editors on this week's episode of Did Y'all See?
New moms are often expected to take time off from their careers following the birth of their babies, but Teyana Taylor says that this won’t be the case in her situation.
“No, no, no the work does not stop,” the 24-year-old told Karen Civil. “The studio will be built in the house, and music already calms my daughter when she’s upset. I’m sure the records will be coming.”
The “Maybe” singer’s boyfriend, Iman Shumpert, announced the pregnancy news earlier this week—confirming rumors that were already circulating—but the couple knew that they were expecting a child for quite some time now. In fact, Shumpert said that he learned that he would be a father for the first time during the NBA playoffs earlier this year.
“‘Twas May 22nd and a day that we will never forget!” said the Cleveland Cavaliers shooting guard.
As for why they kept the news under wraps for so long, the 25-year-old first-time father had this to say:
“It was never a secret. We as parents-to-be wanted the moment of people finding out we were expecting a child to be special. This is not a story or an exclusive — it’s a celebration of life, and that should be respected. We don’t want any negative light put on someone so innocent and so precious.”
Words can't express how excited I am for my sis @teyanataylor and my bro bro @imanshumpert these two couldn't be more made for each other and I'm happy and proud that I found true love in Iman!!!!! #babyIman don't know what she's in store for with her parents lol!!! I can't wait for this baby shower😝😉😁 #blessings #familyaffair
“My body is changing every minute of the day,” Taylor said of the pregnancy, “I feel it all…I embrace it all…I love what is to come of it.”
Iman Tayla Shumpert is expected to make her grand entrance on January 16, 2015.
Congratulations are in order.
Teyana Taylor and Iman Shumpert are expecting their first child. The Cleveland Cavaliers shooting guard confirmed the news Wednesday afternoon when he posted a sonogram image of their growing baby girl on Instagram. Taylor is due on January 16, according to the 25-year-old.
“When a man loves a woman how she was born to be loved…procreation is the best blessing you can receive! I couldn’t be more happy than to share my first child with the woman I intended to have my family with. Iman Tayla Shumpert Jr is expected to enter this world ‘1.16.16.’
We want that world to be as pure as possible for her. We people, show the world what we feel the world should see when we want them to see it…something this beautiful had to be announced when we were ready for everyone to know…this is what happiness grows into!
I love you @teyanataylor thank you for your sacrifice in starting our very own family!
P.S. I know you see my daughter with her hand behind her head and her feet kicked up…[laughing emoji]…she’s already daddy’s little girl!!!”
The heartfelt announcement confirms pregnancy rumors that have been circulating about Taylor for a little over a week. A representative for Taylor did not immediately return our request for comment.

Now that’s it’s spring, you know what that means: time to switch up your hair!
Many women, myself included, have already jumped at the chance to change up their hair color and style now that the sun is acting like it may just come out to play for more than a few hours. But some people are making drastic changes, like Teyana Taylor.
The singer (and my fitness inspiration) showed off her new cut on Instagram late last week. While most are used to seeing Taylor with long hair, she decided to try something old, but new. She calls it, “#vintagerealness”:
Taylor also pointed out that a big reason why she was more than ready to cut her hair off is because she’s been taking hair growth pills. She swears by them.
Down to my last few of these babies, it's definitely time to re-up!!! I swear by these 😩😩 that's why doing the big chop was nothing, because these @TheManeChoice pills have your hair growing like weeds! Even tho I know @courtneyadeleye is ready to killll me for this cut lol 😩😩😂😂😂#TeamPurpleBottle #TheManeChoice #Manetabolism
Don’t really understand the purpose of cutting off your hair and then taking hair growth vitamins…unless the big chop was done to get rid of damaged strands? Hey, whatever works.
As for the cut as a whole, I’m loving it! A lot of the hair she wears tends to shroud her face, so you don’t often get to see her bone structure, which is amazing. Plus, as she pointed out, she’s also giving us a Peaches in Low Down Dirty Shame vibe. That could never be a bad thing.
But what do you think? Let us know your thoughts on her finger waves below! Do you have any big hair changes planned for spring?
So yesterday’s LOL news was provided by Iman Shumpert. In case you missed it, the Cleveland Cavaliers player expressed disapproval of “Empire” characters Tiana and Hakeem because he felt that they copied his and girlfriend Teyana Taylor’s likeness/life.
“They’re using my girl’s character, her style, her look and she’s not getting anything for it,” he told sports journalist Chris Haynes. “They didn’t even change her name. They could have at least let my girl audition for the part instead of stealing her character completely.”
While I adore Teyana, I truly felt that her bae was reaching with that one. Iman has since come forward to clarify his comments and according to the 24-year-old, his words were distorted.
“Fans of the show and friends have told us on many occasions that couple favors us but we do not all feel that our lives are being copied/stolen,” he explained to TMZ Sports.
The shooting guard proceeded to apologize to “Empire” stars Bryshere Gray and Serayah McNeill who play Hakeem and Tiana.
“I apologize to the actors on the show because they’re just being professionals and don’t deserve slander that’s not what I was trying to portray and I have to be more careful with my choice of words.”
He then shifted the blame onto Chris, claiming that his words were exaggerated and blown out of proportion.
“I do not appreciate the writer using his questions with my answers to draw quotes like I was making these elaborate answers but that’s the media. The writer took a 2-3 min convo of locker room talk after a GREAT TEAM WIN and made it look like a sit down interview and it wasn’t,” said Iman.
“He twisted words to get the point that he wanted to get across. This is not that serious and though we don’t watch the show we are not against it,” he continued.
Right, blame the media.

It’s official. Everyone is after a piece of the “Empire” pie. First, 50 Cent claimed they jacked his marketing scheme. Then, Joseline Hernandez joked that Cookie was trying to be like her. Now, Cleveland Cavaliers player Iman Shumpert, of all people, is claiming that he and his girlfriend Teyana Taylor inspired characters Hakeem and Tiana.
“I don’t watch that stuff, man,” he told Northeast Ohio Media Group with what journalist Chris Hayes says was an annoyed look on his face.
Apparently Shumpert is bothered because he believes the network copied Taylor’s style when creating Tiana.
“They’re using my girl’s character, her style, her look and she’s not getting anything for it,” he explained. “They didn’t even change her name. They could have at least let my girl audition for the part instead of stealing her character completely.”
He then went on to discuss Hakeem.
“And come on man, they’re really using a guy with a flat-top like me. Come on. That’s ridiculous. They never called us. We were blindsided. We found out by our family and fans when the show aired.”
Yes, Hakeem does sport a flat-top and Tiana has some pretty big hair, similar to that of Teyana’s, but honestly dude is reaching.
“I don’t see how they can deny it,” he said. “Everybody knows.”
As for whether or not there will be legal action taken against FOX, Shumpert had this to say:
“Her fans are more mad about it than I am,” Shumpert said. “I’m a ball player, but that’s her field. That’s what she does. Me personally, I don’t plan on taking any action but I don’t know about her.”
Porsha Williams Responds To Teyana Taylor, But Fails To Get Her Name Right: “I Just Wish Tatiana Would’ve Consulted Her Legal Team”
Earlier this week, Teyana Taylor lashed out at Porsha Williams over the RHoA star’s soon-to-be-released #unbothered t-shirt line. As previously reported, Taylor felt slighted by the name of the line because she has been promoting a clothing line by the very same name. Porsha recently decided to respond to the singer’s rant—even though she mistakenly referred to her as “Tatiana” several times. The verdict is still out on whether or not this was intentional shade.
“I always remain unbothered. I’ve been saying ‘unbothered’ and ‘fleek’ like everybody else on Instagram. Like she said on my comments, I do follow Tatiana or whatever. I follow a lot of people who are in entertainment. I try to support a lot of our young black women doing it in music. I had no idea she had a clothing line. I really don’t have a problem with her having a clothing line called unbothered because my t-shirt is just a t-shirt line. It’s not a clothing line. Furthermore, I just wish Tatiana would’ve consulted her legal team because then she would know that she can’t even trademark the word unbothered anyway. I just thought it was a little distasteful to put the comment on Instagram instead of DM’ing me. She could’ve just DM’d me and said, ‘Hey Porsha, I’d rather you not da da da da,’ and I could’ve put ‘pretty on fleek’ or whatever else. It was just blown out of proportion.”
Williams went on to say that she has zero intentions of halting the release of her t-shirts
“I just want everyone to know that the shirt will be available for pre-order on Sunday.”
In a more lighthearted video, Porsha and her “Dish Nation” co-hosts also poked fun at the legal war that Taylor has attempted to wage against her.
While we’d love to say the drama ended there, you know good and well that it did not. Teyana quickly took to Instagram and Twitter to respond to the reality star’s statement and she’s pretty worked up.
