COUPLEDOM: Shaq and Hoopz BACK ON…INSPIRING Youth On The Basketball Court In The Bahamas


Shaquille O’Neal and his girlfriend Nicole “Hoopz” Alexander (yep…they’re back together) were spotted cuddling off the court during a charity event in the Bahamas. See the pics inside…


After a serious break-up and public fight last year, Shaquille O’Neal and his on-again girlfriend Nicole “Hoopz” Alexander were spotted inspiring the youth in Nassau City.

As a precursor to a gala for the Paradise Children’s Foundation (February 1), the NBA legend signed basketballs for fans while Hoopz showed off her skills on the court in an event staged by the foundation.

The couple arrived with numerous items with they offered up for the gala’s auction. Wendy Ellis, the foundation director spoke about Shaq’s involvement and the purpose of the event saying,

“We thought how great would it be to do something on a really big scale, to have everyone come together from one end of the island to the other, for one night, to raise as much money as we can, not just for one, but for many local children’s charities.”


Also, Shaq tweeted about his new venture with TruTV, a comedy series called "Upload With Shaquille O’Neal" where he and a group of comics will present funny online videos and create a few of their own viral clips.  The series is expected in the early part of the year.

SERIOUSLY!? Shaq SAYS He Only RESPECTFULLY Cheated On Shaunie O’Neal!

If there is a way to respectfully and tastefully break someone’s heart….Shaquille O’Neal has the answer.  In his memoir, the star admits to cheating on ex-wife Shaunie O’Neal, but adds, he was never "disrespectful."  Deets inside…..

In his new memoir Shaq Uncut: My Story (hitting shelves next Tuesday), NBA icon Shaquille O’Neal admits he was the reason for the demise of his marriage to Shaunie O’Neal.  (shocker) He also admits to sleeping with multiple women, even though he didn’t name names, during the marriage….but he did it tastefully.

"At one time my ex-wife Shaunie and I were happy, but I admit it–I was a guy. I was a guy with too many options. Choosing to be with some of those women, well, that’s on me. In my mind, I never did it disrespectfully, but obviously I shouldn’t have done it all."

I would love more details on how it wasn’t "disrespectful."  Maybe he only gave the side-chicks his GO-PHONE number and didn’t let them spend the night?

Nevertheless, he adds that he’s matured now and he’s learning to be a better partner.  Well that’s good news for Hoopz I guess…

"You know as well as I do relationships are about maintaining… It wasn’t the big stuff, it was the small stuff, and that’s my fault. I had things to do. I was trying to win, trying to make some money. I admit I wasn’t the best partner. I just didn’t know how. I’m learning now."

Isn’t that always the case….Shaunie puts in the work but Nikki "Hoopz" Alexander gets him after he’s all "grown out" of his cheating ways.  Sigh….
