Teyana Taylor has addressed recent speculations surrounding her alleged pregnancy amidst her divorce from Iman Shumpert.
The multi-talented artist made an appearance at the 33rd Annual Gotham Awards in New York City on Monday night (November 27), coinciding with the release of her latest film, “A Thousand and One.”
Dressed in a sleek black outfit, Taylor walked the red carpet, prompting some fans to speculate about a potential pregnancy due to her appearance.
Responding to the online chatter, the former G.O.O.D. Music signee dismissed the pregnancy claims, explaining that her stomach looked bloated because she had recently used the restroom. In a comment on The Hollywood Unlocked‘s Instagram post, Taylor humorously stated, “Auntey ain’t preggo y’all! I just had to pee. Y’all know that pee pouch ain’t nothing to play wit. My kangaroo pouch ass.”
These rumors surfaced shortly after it was revealed that Teyana Taylor had confidentially filed for divorce from her husband, former NBA star Iman Shumpert, in January.
The couple officially announced their separation in September, with Taylor stating that infidelity was not a factor in their decision to part ways. However, Taylor’s divorce filing alleged multiple instances of Shumpert’s infidelity, as well as accusing him of cruel treatment and displaying extreme narcissistic behavior throughout the majority of their marriage.
Furthermore, Taylor claimed that the former New York Knicks player had been emotionally and mentally abusive towards her. These revelations have added another layer to the public’s understanding of the couple’s high-profile divorce.
