Iman Shumpert does not like Teyana’s choice of words on their divorce paperwork.
According to an exclusive with TMZ he’s now calling BS on her claim he made her feel endangered when she was with him.
According to court documents, obtained by TMZ, Shumpert says Teyana never proved he made her feel endangered, despite making the claim in recently filed divorce papers.
Iman wants the court to take action, and to remove Teyana’s accusations from the documents.
To get specific, Teyana put something called “cruel treatment” as grounds for the couple’s divorce, which is defined as “willful infliction of pain bodily or mental … [that] reasonably justifies apprehension of danger to life, limb, or health.”
Iman says that’s nonsense, and the only grounds should be “irretrievable broken bond.” He wants the “cruel treatment” grounds thrown out.
What’s more, Iman says despite Teyana’s claims, he’s never been irresponsible when it comes to the care of their two daughters, seven-year-old “Junie” Tayla, and three-year-old Rue Rose.
The new filing from Iman is just another chapter in what’s already become a nasty custody battle.
As reported, Teyana first filed the divorce docs using only the couple’s initials in an attempt to keep everything private from the public.
However, Iman blew the lid off the secret when he filed a motion asking the court to attach their full names to the documents … and allowing the public to know what was going on.
TMZ broke the story, the two have been living separately since the filing, and communication has been minimal … only happening when it comes to the care of their daughters.
Teyana’s attempt as having the divorce sealed was denied by the courts.
In her motion, Taylor explained the “parties are prominent public figures of some level of acclaim due to their involvement in the entertainment industry” and argued that “the public’s right of access to the parties’ financial and settlement documents is substantially outweighed by the harm it would cause the parties and their minor children for the public to have unfettered access to said documents.”
The judge found that Taylor did not present enough evidence to warrant the case being sealed completely.
