« I’m going to step back from this conversation, » he said on the latest episode of « The Big Shaq » podcast. « I was a serial cheater. It would be crazy and blasphemous for me to stand up here and say, ‘Boom, boom, bam.’ I can’t do that. I know these guys personally. I know they’re going through a lot because I’ve been through a lot. »
O’Neal married Shaunie Henderson in 2002 but filed for divorce in 2007. The couple reconciled but divorced in 2009, citing irreconcilable differences. He also had relationships from 2010 to 2012 and from 2014 to 2018.
