The world is not that goofy and fun for former NBA superstar center Shaquille O’Neal.
This developed after O’Neal and his girlfriend Nicole ‘Hoopz’ Alexander have mutually decided to end their relationship. According to reports, the exact reason for the separation is unknown, but it was learned that the former couple were seen fighting in public before their separation.
The former NBA superstar and his 5’2″ girlfriend started dating back in 2010 when Shaq played for the Boston Celtics. News of the breakup surprised their family and friends since the couple looked very happy together.
Although not as popular as Shaq, Alexander is known for her appearances on Flavor Of Love and I Love Money, both on the VH1 network. Alexander also worked as a TSA agent at Detroit Metropolitan Wayne County Airport.
We wish both Shaq and Nicole all the best in their career, especially now that both of them are nursing a broken a heart.
It looks like the Clippers are welcoming back another player.
Khloé Kardashian-Odomand her husband, Lamar Odom, are most likely staying in Los Angeles for good now that the basketball star has been traded to the L.A. Clippers, according to NBC Sports. A source close to the Kardashians confirms that Odom’s agent has arranged a deal for the player to go back to the Clippers, but the source also adds that it’s not yet official.
Khloé, who spent the day with her sisters at her stepfather’s house, is very “thrilled” about the plan, the source spills. The basketball forward is not a stranger to the city of celebrities. Lamar’s first four years in the NBA were spent with the Clippers.
Last season, Odom moved from the Los Angeles Lakers to the Dallas Mavericks, where he played in 50 games but had several absences due to family problems. He then parted from the Mavs in April, stating:
“I’m sorry that things didn’t work out better for both of us…but I wish the Mavs’ organization, my teammates, and Dallas fans nothing but continued success in the defense of their championship.”
The NBA superstar was awarded the NBA’s Sixth Man of the Year for the L.A. Lakers in the 2010-2011 season.
While a typical boyfriend might love to have his girl by his side during important moments in his life, that is clearly not the case for Miami Heat superstar guard, Dwayne Wade, at least not as far as his home games are concerned.
Wade made the tough decision to ban his actress girlfriend, Gabrielle Union, from court-side seats in order to minimize distraction during his team’s home games. According to reports, Wade decided it would be better if his girlfriend was seated at least a few seats away from court-side. Apparently, Union has a tendency to create scenes by annoying opposing players or the game’s referees.
Wade wants his girlfriend to keep a low profile during his home games and not disrupt game play. As a loving girlfriend, Union fully respects Wade’s decision and admits that she has a tendency to create scenes because she deeply loves the sport of basketball. She also admits to sometimes annoying Wade himself when she feels he isn’t playing well or is committing too many errors during the game.
We just hope the Heat can now win more home games with Union safely away from court-side seats.
