Shaq Finalizes Divorce

NBA superstar Shaquille O'Neal and now ex-wife Shaunie have finalized their divorce in both Florida and California.

The O'Neal's divorce case was pending in both Miami and Los Angeles. A judge in Florida was responsible for determining spousal support and equitable distribution of property, since the couple lived together in Florida. A California judge had the responsibility of determining child support and child custody and visitation, since Shaunie filed the divorce papers in California, where she also lives.

According to TMZ, Shaunie's attorney said she and Shaq agreed on all the terms of the divorce, eliminating the need to litigate the case in divorce court.

The divorce comes after eight years of tumultuous marriage. It is rumored that Shaunie believes Shaq cheated on her with multiple women, and has gone on the record to say that it was difficult for her to watch countless women throw themselves at her husband every day. Rumors also circulated that Shaunie cheated on Shaq with her personal trainer, which she vehemently denies.
