Shaq Calls Foul on Wife

Files for Divorce

9/4/2007 11:52 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF


ShawLook out ladies (seriously, get out of his way), Big Shaq Diesel is going back on the market.

In divorce papers filed Tuesday in a Miami court, Shaquille O'Neal claimed his marriage to wife Shaunie has been "irretrievably broken," and accuses her of being shady with his cash, reports the Miami Herald.

The couple has four kids together, and each has a child from a previous relationship. They tied the knot in a ridiculously lavish Beverly Hills ceremony in 2002. Shaq, who is currently in a contract with the Miami Heat worth a cool $100 mil, claims that his wife has been "secretive about her assets," and he has asked the court to order a full investigation into every penny she came into during their union.

The Big Daddy also notes that he made Shaunie sign a pre-nup -- which he's asking the court to keep private. As for custody, the jet-setting basketballer requested that the kids live with Shaunie, and that he receive "liberal rights of visitation." For more sports stories, check out tmzsports.com!

she was probably trying to make sure she was financially secure before she divorces shaq. he just beat her to it. i mean this guy has cheated on her throughout their whole marriage. doesnt he have enough money? he'll probably give her a very small amount of money despite the fact that she had his kids. she can have her own money and assets, she certainly cant depend on shaq, what with his cheating ways and all.

MAYBE YOU SHOULD READ BEFORE YOU COMMENT:    

Thank you jen:

He has treated her shabbily throughout the marriage. If he wants to leave her go ahead. Don't use the excuse that she's hiding her money. I bet you have more secret accounts than she does.
