SHAQ'S LIFE SINCE HIS DIVORCE

Shaq divorced his wife and mother of 4 of his children, Shaunee O'Neal in 2009, although they have remained dedicated patents to their kids. Shaq has a fifth child, Taahirah O'Neal, whom he shares with his ex-girlfriend Arnetta Yardbourgh.

Shaq's kids  Amirah, Shaqir, and Me'arah are growing up fast, and Shareef is in college, so the former basketball player may be looking for something more like a bachelor pad, and not a family home.

SHAREEF O'NEAL FOLLOWS IN DAD'S FOOTSTEPS

Shaq's son Shareef is a brilliant basketball player, with a very different style from his dad, and is on his way to a pro basketball career. Shareef gave Shaq and Shaunee some sleepness nights when it was discovered in 2018 that he suffered from a congenital heart defect.

In order to save his life, he was subjected to open-heart surgery, which forced him to stop playing for a year. Now Shareef is back in the game playing for the UCLA Bruins and is acquiring a devoted following of his own.

SHOCKING DEATH OF BELOVED FRIEND

On January 26, 2020, Shaq's close friend and Lakers team-mate Kobe Bryant and his 13-year-old daughter Gianna died in a helicopter crash tha claimed the lives of 7 more people. Shaq was deeply wounded by his loss, at a time when he was still mourning the death of his sister Ayesha, who passed away in October 2019.

There were rumors that Shaq and his ex-wife might reconcile, but Shaunee has firmly set that possibility aside. Until recently, Shaq's girlfriend was Laticia Rolle, a model he has been dating since 2014. However, in mid-2019, the NBA icon was linked to several beauties, among them and models Dani Nicole and Annie Ilonzeh.
