Shaq Attacks Kobe: You Ruined My Marriage!

6/23/2008 8:42 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

You've never seen a Shaq Attack like this.

Shaquille O'Neal took the mic at a NYC club last night, unleashing a freestyle verbal assault directed at his arch-enemy Kobe Bryant -- blaming his former teammate for ruining his marriage and imploring him to "Tell me how my ass tastes."

After spending several verses shredding Kobe apart for losing in the NBA playoffs, Shaq drops the line, "I'm a horse, Kobe ratted me out, that's why I'm getting divorced."

Launch photosThe line most likely references a comment Kobe made during his infamous 2003 rape case, when he told Colorado police that he "Should have done what Shaq does ... Shaq would pay his women not to say anything." The two became famously bitter rivals after the incident.

Calls to Kobe's reps were not returned.

“You know how I be/ last week Kobe couldn’t do without me.”

2004 Finals? The Lakers wouldn't do against the Pistons, even if they had Malone & that creepy Payton w/ them.

I used to like shaq but I think we all can understand how he just sold himself on national TV, WHAT AN IDIOT. You were on heats and ya'll was garbage this season, you ran to phonix and you still couldn't do anything, I believe that tells you a lot about your playing stats. I think you can call kobe up and tell him to teach you how to shoot free throws because that might help the suns. Lakers came along way this season to the finals and u know what we didnt win the finals but we got the conference title. Suck on that. A title doesnt make you a man, leadership does but you just proved how much of a big kid you are.

Everyone is pretty much off on this entire subject. Shaq is only doing what he is doing if an album is getting ready to come out. As far as Kobe yeah he is a B.A.N for ratting out tings that gone on with other people. If Shaq paid to keep those chicks quiethe can do that because of his money and who he is. If you want to know some other things about him pick up Superhead's book and find out about him and some other people you wonder about. Kobe needs to get use to losing because if he was a smart person I would have ridden Shaq until he couldnt play anymore. And for you illiterate people who cant spell on here please do take the time to proof read your chit! Michael Jordan is the greatest of all time. There is no reason to not spell his name correctly.

Shaq, needs to grow up and let it go, oh and retire now! He needs to quit blaming Kobe for his divorce and accept the fact that his wife cheated on him. That was real childish of Shaq to talk about Kareem during this little spot light he got in NYC. It goes to show you how mature he is and a lot of people have lost respect for him, at least i have. SHAQ, YOUR A LOSER AND LIKE YOU SAY, A BIG KID THAT HAS NOT LEARNED ANYTHING THAT YOUR DAD HAS TAUGHT YOU!!!

I lived in La during the breakup, and trust me, nothing this ugly is all one persons fault. That would be too simple. But Shaq is incapable of letting it go, whereas the rest of the participants have. And if Shaq wanted to keep his marriage together, he should have kept it in his pants, and stop blaming others. Yes, Kobe broke the code, but it was under duress, and he had no idea that it would go public. It was a fairly honest mistake, unlike Shaq poking all the tramps in the Western Conference. Kobe did not mean to call Shaq out, whereas Shaq did mean to eff those girls he had to pay off.

Man, I loved watching these guys on the lakers together. Kobe shouldn't have ratted Shaq out like that and Shaq needs to move on from the embarrassment of the lakers choosing Kobe over him. Honestly, I wish Shaq come back to the lakers and win some more rings with Phil and crush these celtics. LETS GO LAKERS!

Okay..this is so easy to figure out..why can't some too-highly paid "athlete" figure it out? -- Kobe says to cop that Shaq pays his women to be quiet and Shaq blames Kobe for divorce...well DUHHHHH Shaq -- keep it zipped unless you are with YOUR WIFE and you would have NO problems!! (at least in the adultry department) Marriage takes TWO and when one is sleeping around and paying women to stay quiet and he gets found out and "squeeled on", he has NO ONE to blame but himself for catting around in the first place!!! I thought these athletes making ALL that money had SOME common sense reasoning....... Sheeeeesh!!! yeah blame Kobe - he slept around on YOUR wife. What an idiot!

Shaq is just jealous because his career is over. If he would have kept his fat ass in half as good as shape that Kobe keeps himself in, he might still be playing with some kind of impact on the game. Hey Shaq what have you done lately? Shaq really thinks he can compare himself to Kareem? Not even in the same class, sorry. Shaq should just shut up and stop trying to be the man because his time is long past. He says he has no issues with Kobe yet he is talking crap about him. I bet we all wish we had friends like him - not.
