Shaquille O’Neal says he has no comment on Celtics coach Ime Udoka‘s cheating scandal because he is also a serial cheater.
Udoka was suspended for the entire 2022-23 season for engaging in an intimate affair with a female staffer.
Udoka and the woman confirmed the relationship was consensual, but the staffer later complained that he made “unwanted comments” and harassed her.
Udoka and his fiancee of 7 years, actress Nia Long, were house hunting in the Boston area when the scandal broke last week.
On “The Big Podcast with Shaq,” the Lakers legend said he had no comment on Udoka’s company violation because his own bed sheets aren’t clean.
“I am going to step down from this conversation. I was a serial cheater,” Shaq confessed.
“It would be crazy and blasphemous for me to get up here and say, ‘Boom, boom, bam.’ I can’t do that. I know these guys personally. I know they’re going through a lot because I went through a lot.”
“I just wish that certain parties weren’t involved. I’ve known Nia Long for a long time and I like her… They’re going through a lot of family stuff. I’m never the guy that’s gonna get up here because of my platform and fake it.”
Shaq previously confessed to cheating on his ex-wife, Shaunie Henderson, who recently tied the knot again.
Shaq also cheated on his girlfriends, including reality TV star Nicole “Hoopz” Alexander, and Instagram model Laticia Rolle.
“I did it. I was the best at it and not proud of it at all. I lost my family doing it. I lost valuable, important years of my children from doing it… I’m not that guy. I’m real with the situation.”
Shaq said he is now alone and miserable. He is struggling to figure out what went wrong in his happy marriage to a submissive and God-fearing wife.
