Shaunie O’Neal And Pastor Keion Henderson Tie The Knot In Anguilla! Yolanda Adams & Isley Brothers Perform + ‘Basketball Wives’ Cast Attend [PHOTOS]

Congratulations are in order for Shaunie O’Neal and new husband Pastor Keion Henderson.

The newlyweds officially cemented their union over the weekend with a beautiful wedding and bridal shower on the Caribbean island of Anguilla. Shaunie O’Neal, 47, announced her engagement to spiritual leader Keion Henderson, 40, in November of last year. The Basketball Wives creator was previously married to retired NBA star Shaquille O’Neal, 50. The couple divorced after 5 children and 5 years of marriage.

Shaunie shared recaps of the momentous occasion to her instagram story, reposting clips from her reported 200 attendees and revealing a performance by the Isley Brothers. Yolanda Adams reportedly also performed at the event.

Other clips revealed her former and current BBW castmates Jackie Christie and Evelyn Lozada were also in attendance.

Shaunie’s five children, Amirah, Me’arah, Myles, Shareef, and Shaqir were also present to celebrate their mother’s nuptials. Reportedly, her sons proudly walked her down the aisle in lieu of the reality star losing her father while planning the ceremony.

Previously, Shaunie opened up about her excitement to marry her then fiance. During an interview, the TV personality admitted that Pastor Keion “filled a void” in her life, and gets along very well with her children. She stated:

“[Keion has been] amazing to just step into our lives and fill a void that’s been there for a minute … ’cause I haven’t had somebody…. They love him, which makes me love him even more.”

Her previous husband, basketball champion Shaquille O’Neal, recently admitted that his failed marriage to Shaunie was “all his fault”. The Lakers giant stated:

“I was bad. She was awesome. She really was. It was all me.”


Then continued:

“We don’t need to talk about what I was doing but I wasn’t protecting her and protecting those vows. Sometimes when you live that double life, you get caught up. So I’m not gonna say it was her, it was all me.”

Shaq and Shaunie married in 2002 and separated five years later in 2007. The pair briefly rekindled attempting to work things out. However, Shaunie ultimately filed for divorce, citing “irreconcilable differences”. The divorce was finalized in 2011.


Congratulations again to the newlyweds! Leave Shaunie and Pastor Keion well wishes in the comments section.
