Basketball Wives Star Shaunie O’Neal Is Dating Model Marlon Yates
The Basketball Wives star Shaunie O’Neal has been dating model Marlon Yates for about two years now. She and he are not known for their outbursts of drama, but they have been caught sending some cryptic tweets over the weekend. They are reportedly in a serious relationship and Michele was “mad” about one of the tweets that they sent each other.
The former NBA star and his wife met in 1996 when they were both in college at the University of Miami. They dated for a while before they married in 2002. They were blessed with four children together.
Despite their happy family life, the marriage experienced its first crack in 2007 when Shaquille filed for divorce. He alleged that his wife was hiding her money and being secretive about her assets. He also claimed that she was cheating on him with other men. Fortunately, the two reconciled and got back together.
She is an active social media influencer and she has a large following on her various platforms. She shares her thoughts, lifestyle and other tidbits with her followers on these platforms.
Aside from her work, she has a family and friends who are a source of happiness in her life. She enjoys spending time with her kids and taking care of them. She also likes living a solo life.
Her children are Shaqir, Shareef, Amirah and Me’arah. The youngest of their four children, Shaqir, is a talented basketball player and is currently playing for TSU.
During her marriage with Shaquille O’Neal, she enjoyed a great deal of fame. They were married in a private ceremony at the Beverly Hills Hotel on December 26th, 2002.
Their marriage was supposed to last for 10 years, but things didn’t go as planned. They were married for just over 5 years when they filed for divorce in September 2007. During that time, they had many issues and arguments.
After their divorce, they began to live separately. The couple still have contact with each other. They have a daughter named Taahirah who is the younger sister of their oldest child.
Her mother Louise is said to be an Irish woman, while her father is a US Army officer. She has a brother and a sister that are unknown.
She has been a part of the cast of VH-1’s reality series, Basketball Wives since 2014. She is the executive producer of the show and she also produces spinoff shows such as Shaunie’s Home Court and Baller Wives.
There has been some speculation that she is gay. According to some reports, her profile was found on a gay dating website called Adam 4 Adam. However, it is still unclear whether her profile is used by herself or not.
The Basketball Wives star has a son and a daughter from her previous marriage with Shaquille O’Neal, so she does have a lot of experience with infidelity.
During her career as a sports star, she dated Shaquille for several years. They were married for about five years before they separated in 2007.
After she divorced, she started dating Marlon Yates Jr. The pair were seen on many different events in the past few years.
