Shaq and Hoopz back together? Shaquille O’Neal’s love life is anything but boring. After divorcing from his now reality television powerhouse Shaunie O’Neal, he’s been romantically linked to several women. But Shaq’s most notable relationship post Shaunie would have to be the on and off one he’s had with another reality star. Hoopz, the winner of season one of Flavor of Love, has been involved with Shaq since his split with Shaunie. While some even speculate that the on and off again couple were romantically involved while he was married to Shaunie (that would explain why Shaunie threw shade to her on Twitter not too long ago), it’s obvious that both were pretty happy with one another.

However, last year, the couple confirmed they had called it quits. It was never explained what ended their relationship, but whispers suggest Shaq might have been creeping, and broke things off with Hoopz after getting caught up. Those rumors of course were never confirmed, but now it appears that the on and off again couple might be back on.

According to reports, Shaq and Hoopz were spotted together again in the Bahamas recently.

Here’s the report from 4UMF:

“Shaquille O’Neal and Nicole ‘Hoopz’ Alexander announced their break-up last summer, but looks like they have reunited. The happy couple was spotted at the Atlantis Resort in the Bahamas playing hoops and signing basketballs for kids as part of volunteer work with the Paradise Children’s Foundation.”


In related news, it appears that Shaunie O’Neal’s love life isn’t popular with her kids. According to multiple reports, one of Shaunie’s sons posted on her boyfriend’s Marlon Yates’ Instagram photo and called him a “f-ggot.” Rumors about Marlon’s sexuality have been persistent since Shaunie went public with their romance.


  1. Shaq seems to creep alot but for some reason he can’t seem to let Hoops go! I love them together! and for Shaunie I sure hope we don’t have another woman who knows damn well her man is gay but wan’ts to prance around like he’s not. Ahem Star Jones!
