Inside Teyana Taylor and Iman Shumpert’s Dream Team Love

Iman Shumpert and Teyana taylor weren’t looking for each other, but luckily they’re both hard to miss.

It was in 2011 when the newly drafted NBA rookie and the style dancer / model / singer / muse first crossed paths at a night out in New York City. Taylor, who several years earlier had been celebrated my super sweet sixteen, was perched on a railing, needing a breather from her 7-inch Versace heels, when the 6-foot-5 Shumpert walked over to say hello.

“He came up to me and tried to talk to me, but I was in a relationship, so I kinda like …” Taylor recalled on Vlad TV in 2014, miming not being super sensitive to charms. of her future husband. She didn’t give him the cold shoulder or anything, she clarified, but “he was up, everyone was up, and I was just like [shrug], ‘Ok thank you.'”

After that, the Harlem-born performer would see the New York Knicks stand guard and “this guy is always so present, so outspoken, full of personality,” she said fondly. But, “I was in my situation so I never paid attention to it, he was just cool.”
