Teyana Taylor has had enough of TMZ being in her business.

The extremely talented multi-hyphenate took to Instagram to call out the celebrity gossip site following a recent report on her pending divorce from former NBA hooper Iman Shumpert, accusing them of dropping salacious headlines about the situation.

In a post on her IG Stories, Taylor wrote, “Yo @tmz, are you serious???? Y’all really be taking it too far with these d*mn misleading headlines and I’m tired of it! Every time I turn around it’s either half leaked and made up stories, or words being twisted up for clickbait!!!! I kindly ask you mothaf%ckas to mind ya damn business, and for y’all to respect me and my family’s privacy.”

Teyana Taylor’s clapback is seemingly in response to a report that her ex-husband was “playing dirty in their divorce war…slowly shutting down all the utilities in the home where she lives with their 2 children.”

The world found out the couple, whom many thought were “relationship goals,” were on the outs after Shumpert counter-filed using their real names. Taylor initially filed for divorce in 2023, just using their initials to keep the situation private.
