This is one of those posts that creeps into the celebrity range a little bit too much for my taste, but whatever. As we all know, Shaq is getting divorced. Which, when you think about it, isn't real surprising. He's an NBA superstar, which means we can pretty much assume he's cheated on his wife multiple times. And don't worry, there are plenty of rumors about Shaq out there, including Kobe Bryant's "I should have paid her off like Shaq does" line.
But here's the fun part. Apparently the reason they're getting divorced is not just because Shaunie O'Neal had been hiding money and investments. No, apparently she's also been having a raging affair with one of Shaq's personal trainers. Yikes.
According to Janet Charlton's Hollywood, which I've never heard of until today but I assume does top-notch work and is never wrong about anything, had this to say:
When Shaunie fell for this guy she started stashing money away and went so far as to put a secret down payment on a HOUSE that she plans to share with the [guy].
Ah yes, resorting to illegal money stashing to burgeon an affair that your NBA superstar husband doesn't know about always makes things more interesting. If there was a murder involved we'd have a Hollywood script. Or ninjas, that would work too.
Truth be told, I don't really feel bad for anyone in this sordid affair. Well, I guess I do feel bad the personal trainer. He might be in trouble the next time Shaq comes in for a workout, but that shouldn't happen until about February.
