Shaquille O'Neal Says He Had To Delete His Tinder Account After One Day Because People Didn't Believe It Was Him
It seems like basketball icon Shaquille "Shaq" O'Neal is trying his hand at the dating game. During a recent interview, the 49-year-old sports analyst revealed that he downloaded Tinder to give the infamous dating app a try. However, things didn't go exactly as planned. Shaq shared,
"I signed up for Tinder, put in my name, and I tried to make a person meet me. And they didn't believe it was me."
"I was like, 'It's me, it's Shaq.' And she said, 'Shaq would never be on this.' So I had to hit delete. I had to delete my account."
During the interview, Shaq was also asked if he has any plans for his upcoming 50th birthday in March. He replied,
"You know what's crazy about this question you just asked me, I forgot I was going to be 50 years [old]."
He continued and joked about his plans for his birthday.
"I'll probably do like a four-city tour [for my birthday]. L.A., Vegas, Miami, and Atlanta."
See the full interview below:
Shaq was previously married to reality star and tv producer Shaunie O'Neal. The pair married in 2002 and divorced in 2011.
As previously reported, during a separate interview this past August, Shaq revealed that he once turned down a $40-million deal with Reebok because a woman cursed at him for his shoe line being too expensive. He shared,
"I'm leaving the arena one day and this lady is ripping me a new one."
"'She said you mother*******, charging these babies all this money for shoes,' and I had like $2000 in my pocket and I was like, 'ma'am, I don't make the prices here you go,' and she smacked the money out my hand. She said, 'why don't you mother******* make these shoes affordable!'
Shaq continued and said that he realized that day that the woman was right and cut ties with Reebok immediately.
