Teyana Taylor‘s body gave out after she worked herself to exhaustion to pay the household bills while her husband Iman Shumpert competed in a dance competition.
The 30-year-old mom-of-two shared an Instagram photo from her hospital bed after she collapsed during a concert on Saturday. She flashed a peace sign while covered in blankets on a gurney.
The “We Got Love” singer captioned the image:
“Thank you, thank you, thank you so much for all the warm love, sweet videos & prayers from my CT rose petals… I love y’all! Thank you for being so understanding. Y’all know Petunia don’t miss no shows & most importantly, know I’ve been leaving it all on tha stage for a month straight 1000%. So I am really saddened to have not been able to do the same for you last night.”
“My team & I tried everything down to the very last second to get me out on that stage, but my body simply just gave out, which actually started a few days ago. SHUT DOWN, my body actually low key betrayed me cause ah bitch was tryna get on that stage. Y’all know I’m with the shits! y’all have seen me with a broken foot and all types of other crazy shit but still got on that stage and bodied it…”
The NBA free agent is hoping a team will sign him after he took off months to practice and compete in season 30 of DWTS. He hasn’t played in the NBA since February when the Brooklyn Nets signed him to a 10-day contract.
“Trying to see what we can get done. I love basketball. I never stopped playing,” Shumpert, 31, told TMZ. “They call me a ‘former’, ‘ex’, but I told them the league just didn’t pay me this year. It’s not an ‘ex’ thing. Me and the league didn’t break up.”
Iman said he isn’t waiting by the phone for a team to call. He’s doing other things to pay the rent because he has two mouths to feed at home.
“I’ll be doing other opportunities until that happens,” he said. “I play basketball because I love it, not to wait on a job at the same time.”
Iman won an NBA championship ring with the Cleveland Cavaliers in 2016.
