Teyana Taylor and Iman Shumpert

In late November, TMZ reported that Teyana Taylor had secretly filed for divorce from Iman Shumpert eight months before announcing their split in September. Days after the story broke, Taylor took to Instagram to slam tabloids for sharing details and statements “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,” she wrote in an Instagram story on November 24, per People. She continued, “Protecting my family is one thing I’ve ALWAYS done & for my children I will continue to do so.”

Taylor first announced her split from the former NBA player in September after seven years of marriage and two children. “Iman and I are separated and have been for a while,” the singer and actor wrote on Instagram at the time. “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.”

She continued, “Most importantly we are FAMILY & in the 10yrs together, 7yrs married we ain’t ever played with or about THAT…. The only reason I’m even sharing THIS part of the chat is because the narratives are getting a little out of hand & it’s unfair to all parties involved. I hope this provided some clarity for y’all.”

Glen Powell and Gigi Paris

Glen Powell and girlfriend Gigi Paris have broken up, a source has exclusively confirmed to People on April 26. Apparently, the split happened weeks ago in large part because Paris was “never happy” dating long-distance to accommodate Powell’s filming schedule. Reportedly, the two have been on the rocks since the release of Top Gun, in which Powell stars.

Paris hinted at the news via cryptic Instagram caption shortly after unfollowing Powell’s Anyone but You costar Sydney Sweeney. “Know your worth & onto the next,” the model wrote.

Sweeney is still engaged to her boyfriend of five years, Jonathan Davino. But unfounded rumors of an off-screen fling with Powell are running rampant following a series of flirty promotional appearances for their forthcoming rom-com.
