Is Shaquille O’Neal engaged? On Sunday morning (March 27, 2016) the American Sun-Times reported that the retired NBA baller and his girlfriend, Laticia Rolle, were shopping for engagement rings. According to the site,
The couple was seen closely eyeing some pricey bling in a couple of major jewelry stores — especially major diamond baubles that could only be described as the kind usually slipped on a woman’s left-hand ring finger.
Also, Baller Alert reported that Shaq popped the question on Instagram. The site reports:
under one of Laticia’s posts on Instagram, Shaq popped the question, “Will you marry me?” While it’s unclear whether Laticia saw the comment right away (I’m sure she did), it wasn’t until 3 days ago that she answered him under the post. “Yes I will. Today, tomorrow and forever yours,” she wrote.
If the rumors are true, this will be Shaq’s second marriage.
In 2002, he married Shaunie (Nelson) O’Neal. The couple have four children (Shareef, Amirah, Shaqir, and Me’arah), and Shaunie has one son from a previous relationship (Myles). O’Neal also has a daughter from a previous relationship with his ex-girlfriend Arnetta Yarbourgh. In 2009, the couple split.
He also dated reality TV star Nikki “Hoopz” Alexander, but they later ended their relationship.
