Teyana Taylor has been slow to put an end to floating rumors about her private life. Recently, TikTok user Klatsch filmed a reenactment video which told the story of a “singer with a TV show and 2 girls”. The video and submission message did not name Teyana. However, the video included footage of his home. Apparently the story was submitted by an anonymous person. The person claims to be friends with someone who worked as an assistant for the singer.
Teyana responded to the situation by seemingly editing the caption of a previous Instagram post. In the post, Teyana was lying in a hospital bed after her team rushed her to the emergency room. At the time, she said her body “just gave in.” She canceled her performance at the ‘Woman It Forward’ concert in Connecticut. Teyana began her response by acknowledging all the commenters visiting the photo because of “the YT lady from TikTok.”
“The person who sent this CAP a** TikTok story is a jerk, the person who ‘re-enacted’ this CAP a** is a jerk (she better have her coin ready), but the people who believed the CAP a** story are the biggest jerks smh Y’all allowed a YT girl to pull some bullshit like that during Black History Month,” Teyana said.
The viral TikTok video
The anonymous person messaged Klatsch, who shares “unconfirmed stories and parodies,” according to his TikTok profile bio. Klatsch turned the post into a video that’s less than a minute long. Klatsch used footage suggesting that Teyana and her husband Iman Shumpert are the subjects of “hot tea”, as described by the anonymous source. The video featured footage of Teyana’s 2D house design. Klatsch also included an image from the “Dancing with the Stars” stage to reference the “husband’s performance”. As you may already know, Iman and her partner Daniella Karagach won the contest in November.
Klatsch’s video alleges the “singer” got upset to see her husband receiving praise on TV after he cheated on her. A few days after the performance, the singer reportedly exhibited “erratic” behavior while consuming “a lot of candy”. At this point in the video, the singer walked into a bathroom and didn’t respond for a few minutes. After finding the singer on the ground, the team took her to the emergency room.
“November 28 ‘We have to post on his Insta explaining why the concert had to be canceled and make his body seem like he’s ‘stopping’ due to exhaustion,” the TikTok video featured wrote.
Continuation of Teyana’s answer…
According to Teyana, online users flooded her social media accounts, prompting her response. She clarified that “NOBODY” on her team has been hired or fired since her entire team is made up of her still-employed family members. Teyana made it clear that she does not use drugs and only drinks occasionally. She questioned the credibility of the hospital portion. Finally, Teyana clarified that she would more quickly kill and bury Iman herself before being pushed into harming herself.
“Let’s be clear, she or whoever ‘sent this story’ isn’t spilling MY TEA because mine isn’t spilling. ‘influence’ seems to be the only real ‘CANDY’ involved in this whole situation,” Teyana wrote. “Clout is chasing a** doing anything for views a** bloggers need to stop attacking positive black families who are thriving.”
After The Shade Room posted Teyana’s response, she hopped into the comments section with more to say.
“You all know I stay away and mind my own business. But I will ABSOLUTELY stand up for myself and take the TIME to respond to a rumor like this,” Teyana wrote. “Joining my personal home and likeness in the background of a video that spreads FALSE and dangerous rumors about me and my family is almost like saying our names LOUD AND CLEAR. So whether I bring it up or not , it’s damned if you do it damned if you don’t f*ck it but never play with my family.
