Shaq was a guest on The Pivot Podcast and claimed responsibility for the end of the marriage. “I’ve never talked about this, and I’m glad you guys asked because I don’t mind talking about this, but I was bad,” Shaq said. “She was awesome. She really was. It was all me.”

Shaq would reveal he “wasn’t protecting her and protecting those vows.” He also stated he was living a double life.


“She did exactly what she was supposed to do and gave me beautiful kids, take care of the house, take care of the corporate stuff,” Shaq said. “It was just all me. Sometimes, when you make a lot of mistakes like that, you can’t really come back from that.”
