SEWED THIS UP After surviving breakups with high-profile exes, Teyana Taylor, singer and star of BET’s The Start Up, and Cleveland Cavalier b-ball star Iman Shumpert are expecting a baby girl in January. Ain’t love grand? BY DANIELLE YOUNG Teyana Taylor has said that she doesn’t friend zone people, but she broke her own rule when she met Cleveland Cavalier hoop star Iman Shumpert at Ludacris’ famous LudaDay Weekend about four years ago. She was already dating another NBA star, Brandon Jennings. The Google Me singer said that neither she nor Iman were looking for a relationship and they were just cool. Honestly, can you blame Iman for being smitten the moment he laid eyes on her? Teyana stepped outside of her typical Tomboy style and rocked a tiny, grey dress with sky-high Versace heels that were killing her feet. Iman must have been searching for Teyana in the daylight with a flashlight because they’d randomly run into each other in the Big Apple.
But she told VLAD TV that he was always a lil’ too turned up for her taste. He’s a former New York Knick and she’s a Harlem princess, so those NYC close encounters were almost inevitable and it set the foundation for a beautiful friendship. As fate would have it, they were both dealing with breakup aftermath and neither one expected to fall for the other.
Teyana called Iman one night to see what he was up to and he was home. She stopped by, not knowing he was bandaged up and hobbling around his house after knee surgery. There wasn’t anyone there to take care of him, so the star of The Start Up did what any good friend would do”she came back every day that week to tend to the injured athlete. That’s when like turned into love. The Juicy couple announced that they’re expecting their first child”a baby girl due January 2016. Iman revealed on Instagram that he’d like to name his daughter Iman Tayla Shumpert, Jr. Maybe he should let mommy be in charge of naming their bundle of joy.
