Iman Shumpert Thinks “Empire” Based Characters on Him and Teyana Taylor


New York Knicks own Iman Schumpert, who’s known for dating Teyana Taylor thinks that the show has stolen the likenesses of himself and girlfriend Teyana Taylor in the form of Hakeem and his on-screen girlfriend Tiana, the show’s hot-and-cold star couple.


He says:
“They’re using my girl’s character, her style, her look and she’s not getting anything for it,” Shumpert said. It seems like he may be more annoyed for Teyana, because he added, “They didn’t even change her name. They could have at least let my girl audition for the part instead of stealing her character completely.”

That doesn’t mean he’s let Hakeem off the hook though: “And come on man, they’re really using a guy with a flat top like me. Come on. That’s ridiculous. They never called us. We were blindsided. We found out by our family and fans when the show aired,” said Shumpert.

Everybody wants their names attached to this show I see.. so far Empire is based on
