In addition to seeking sole custody of her and Shaquille's four minor children, Shaunie also asks unspecified amount of money for child support.
Having been married to Shaquille O'Neal since 2002, Shaunie Nelson is seeking legal action to end her marriage to the basketball player. Weekly magazine People reports Shaunie filed for divorce papers in a Los Angeles court on Monday, November 9, citing irreconcilable differences for the break-up of their nearly seven years marriage.
The divorce documents listed Shaunie is seeking sole custody of their four minor children with visitation right to be granted for Shaquille. She, moreover, asks for an unspecified amount of money for child support.
Shaquille O'Neal and Shaunie Nelson, who got married on December 26, 2002, are parents to Shareef, Amirah, Shaqir, and Me'arah. Besides, Shaunie also has one child named Myles from a previous relationship and Shaquille has another one called Taahirah from his previous relationship.
Back in September 2007, Shaquille sought legal separation from Shaunie. At that time, it was stated in his divorce petition that "the marriage between the parties is irretrievably broken." Though having a pre-nuptial agreement, the pair couldn't settle problems over cash. The tough divorce battle, however, was ended when both parties agreed to reconcile in August the following year.
As of the press time, neither Shaquille nor Shaunie has made comment on their latest split. Their representatives also haven't addressed the matter just yet.
