Model and NFL star Chanel Iman and Sterling Shepard to divorce

30 July, 2022

Chanel Iman was born in Georgia but raised in Los Angeles. She started modeling at the age of 12 and won third place in Ford Models’ Supermodel of the World contest four years later. Iman’s career took off shortly after signing with Ford Models in 2006, posing for spreads in Allure, Ukrainian Harpers Bazaar, Italian Vanity Fair and several international Vogue editions.

She landed her first Teen Vogue cover alongside Karlie Kloss and Ali Michael in 2007. Her professional experience also includes walking runway shows for Burberry, Tom Ford, Stella McCartney, Louis Vuitton, Alexander McQueen, Marc Jacobs and more.

Iman cemented herself as a supermodel in 2010 when she became a Victoria’s Secret Angel. Iman was a guest judge on America’s Next Top Model in 2009 and later posed with the contestants during a separate episode. She made her film debut in 2015’s Dope and went on to star in 2017s Mad Families. In 2016, Iman started dating NFL player Sterling Shepard. The pair got engaged one year later and tied the knot in March 2018. The model and the New York Giants receiver welcomed their first child, daughter Cali, in August 2018. They later became parents again when Iman gave birth to daughter Cassie in December 2019.

Break up

Divorce documents claimed that the pair Chanel Iman and Sterling Shepard were having marital issues as far back as December 2020. As reported by journalists, both of them have experienced irreconcilable differences which have caused a breakdown in the marital relationship.

According to the papers which were filed in June 2021, the irreconcilable differences have existed for at least six months prior to the filing of this Complaint and there is no reasonable prospect of reconciliation.

However, their fans were aware of the fact that after Iman and Shepard welcomed their daughter Cali in August 2018, they were balancing their parenting responsibilities and their relationship. “It’s honestly tough whenever you put a baby into the situation because you’ve got to still try to find time for each other and a lot of the focus goes onto the baby,” Sterling Shepard said in August 2019. Sadly, their years-long love story came to a full stop.
