O’Neal appeared on The Late Show with James Corden and Victoria Beckham while promoting his new collection. His weird story about a declined credit card at Walmart shocked everyone.


According to Page Six, Shaquille O’Neal shared a hilarious story about his credit card after he tried to make a big-sum purchase at a local Walmart.

The NBA superstar tried to charge the large amount of $70,000 to his American Express card but was disappointed when it got declined.

“I have the biggest purchase in Walmart history. $70,000,” the 46-year-old player told Corden and Beckham, who appeared baffled by the story.

Both people couldn't believe that he wanted to make that kind of a purchase in a Walmart, let alone the fact that it got declined.


The story became ridiculous when he also revealed that it all started when he arrived at his new apartment in Phoenix soon after being traded by Miami.

“So 2 or 3 in the morning, I got to go get four or five TVs. I’ve got to go get printers. I’ve got to go get laptops. I’ve got to go get appliances, sheets, towels, underwear, T-shirts. So in the end, it was $70,000,” O’Neal explained.

According to Maxim, although his card was denied two times, he knew he isn't a broken man and decided to leave the store.

But right at that moment, American Express called to notify him that his credit card was stolen and someone was trying to make a big-sum purchase at a Phoenix Walmart.

“So then the American Express security called me, ‘Hey man. Somebody stole your credit card and they spent $70,000 at Walmart,'” O’Neal said.

He told Corden's audience it was a "true story," claiming that he eventually worked things out, receiving all of his newly-purchased belongings from the store.
