Shaquille O'Neal filed for divorce yesterday in Miami after almost five years of marriage to his wife Shaunie. In his filing Shaquille asks the court that the kids live with their mom and Shaquille be awarded liberal visitation. What that means is that he doesn't want the 4 kids living with him and only wants to see them when he wants to see them which is why he wants liberal visitation.
Liberal visitation doesn't mean I want to be able to see them all the time. Liberal visitation means I want to be able to see them whenever I get around to seeing them and don't want my visit to get in the way of some pre-arranged schedule.
There was a pre-nuptial agreement and Shaunie was going to get a nice big bump if she had made it to December and their five year anniversary.
Shaunie is a very bright woman and throughout her time with Shaquille whether it was as his long time girlfriend or his wife, she was always hiding money here and there and looking out for herself and her kids. While Shaquille was out making the blind item pages, Shaunie was taking care of the kids and herself, but Shaquille didn't like her growing independence or the fact that she was doing well enough on her own that she didn't need Shaquille or his money as much.
Shaquille has found it so emasculating that in his petition he wants the court to ask Shaunie where all her money and property is. Well, she would have to list that anyway, so I don't know why a specific request was made, but Shaq better have all his ducks in a row also. Shaq might be better off just letting her keep whatever she has got instead of having her attorneys start searching through all his private records and payoffs and vacations and shopping trips and things which didn't include his wife.
