Earlier this summer, Elle Varner went public about her relationship with New York Knicks player Iman Shumpert. With her announcement came the well wishes of many fans, happy to see the R&B starlet find romance.
Now just a bit over two months after the revelation, it seems the rendezvous is over. Yesterday (Sept. 12), Elle went on Twitter to announce her new relationship status: “I’m single … please don’t ask me a million questions, I won’t answer any of them. No drama here just peace and love,” she tweeted.
Elle revealed to HipHollywood after the announcement that she and Shumpert have been dating for a while, and was excited to finally have it in the open so she wouldn’t have to hide anymore. But shortly after that, Varner expressed some regrets to Vibe Vixen about making her relationship public: “Making a relationship public draws a lot of scrutiny. It makes you think about something you were never thinking about before so I don’t know if I would advocate public relations to folks but hey, it is what it is. We’re good.”
Could having gone public put a strain on their relationship? Whatever the case, we’re sure Elle will recuperate and they’ll remain friends!
