Former Sudbury resident Nicole “Hoopz” Alexander confirmed to the Globe on Friday that she and her longtime boyfriend, retired Celtic Shaquille O’Neal, have called it quits.
Alexander told us in 2011, shortly after moving to town, that she took to Sudbury because it reminded her of her hometown in suburban Michigan.
Shaq was embarrassed, he dropped his head like he was ashamed of her.
He didn’t say anything while they were in the gym, but once they got to their car a heated argument took place.
Seems a bit odd because Shaq just got her a role in the new Adam Sandler movie on the flipside that might have been more of a punishment than a gift.
Former Sudbury resident Nicole “Hoopz” Alexander confirmed to the Globe on Thursday that she and her longtime boyfriend, retired Celtic Shaquille O’Neal, have called it quits.
While the breakup did not happen that day, it appears Shaq’s annoyance with her behavior eventually led to the breakup that Hoopz confirmed with the Boston Globe.
I felt bad for him.” Another witness confirms the story.
The tattooed duo, spotted shopping over the weekend in Calabasas, Calif., appeared to be struggling to share a kiss, thanks to the 23-in. O’Neal awkwardly bent down while Alexander struck a tippy-toed pose.
The couple may not line up size-wise, but they do share a common tie when it comes to sports.
Shaquille O’Neal and new gal pal Nicole “Hoopz” Alexander don’t exactly match up.
The recently retired (and previously married) basketball star, 39, stands nearly two feet taller than his gal – O’Neal is 7′ 1″ tall, while his leading lady, 28, is just 5′ 2″.
