Despite all his success and accolades on the court, life off the court, including those heinous Comcast commercials, has been anything but smooth.
His wife of 7 years, Shaunie O’Neal, has filed for legal separation with all intentions of getting a divorce in the coming months.
This isn’t the first time the couple has publicly expressed their marital unhappiness. In 2007, Shaq initiated a split after allegations of Shaunie’s infidelity and money hiding tactics.
The couple reunited in 2008 and gave it another try but irreconcilable differences, the reason expressed on the separation decree, brought the relationship to an end, at least for now.
Shaunie O’Neal is also seeking custody of their four children and is expected to request spousal and child support in the near future.
The soon to be ex-wife of Shaq and the kids have left their Florida home and moved back to California. The only question that remains is, how much will she get?
