Like father, like son. For NFL fans, it's no surprise that NFL star Sterling Shepard has found major success in the sport. Just like his late father and former pro-football star, Derrick Shepard, Sterling played college ball at the University of Oklahoma. And after being drafted as the No. 40 pick by the New York Giants, Sterling delivered. Not only has he scored 21 touchdowns to date, he has earned 349 receptions for 3,884 yards. In other words, the man knows how to ball.
It’s not news that NFL stars bring in major coins as part of their deals. However, while Sterling’s finances are expected to grow throughout his time in the NFL, one major setback may cause him to lose money — a divorce. Social media was shocked by the news of his pending divorce to supermodel Chanel Iman. And naturally, the chatter has caused people to ask many questions. So, what is Sterling Shepard’s net worth? Here’s what we know.

Reports reveal that Sterling filed for divorce from Supermodel Chanel Iman after nearly four years of marriage.
We hate to see families break up! According to Page Six, the 28-year-old baller has decided to cut the cord on his marriage with the Victoria’s Secret Angel.
Per court documents obtained by the outlet, Sterling filed the paperwork on June 7, 2021. The couple is reportedly splitting up due to irreconcilable differences that have been a factor “for at least six months” before Sterling made the decision to file.
Not to mention, Sterling is requesting joint legal custody of the pair’s two children, 3-year-old Cali and 2-year-old Cassie. He’s also requesting for the model to have “supervised parenting time” with the girls, which has led many people to believe that something more serious may have transpired.
The couple first started dating after meeting in 2016 and got engaged on Dec. 2 , 2017, just one day after Chanel's 27th birthday.
“A night full of tears of happiness,” the former Victoria’s Secret model said of a now-deleted photo via People. “I’m beyond excited to spend the rest of my life with you, Sterling. You are my soulmate, my best friend, my everything! Can’t wait to be your Mrs.”
The pair later jumped the broom in March 2018.
Social media users have all weighed in on the divorce news, with many people sharing that the revelation was the last thing they expected to hear. The general wish is that the pair can hopefully reconcile in the near future, but unfortunately, only time can tell.
We would like to wish Chanel and Sterling all the best.
