Via Jocks And Stiletto Jill:

In break-up news that might move you, it looks as if Shaq and Nikki 'Hoopz' Alexander have called it quits. There were rumors swirling earlier in the year that they split but Hoopz officially announced it last week to the Boston Globe. A couple breaking up isn’t really that big of a deal, especially when we’re talking athletes and reality stars. However, if this story is accurate, somebody is pretty 'special':

The trouble began to brew a few weeks back after Hoopz visited the Orlando Metro Gymnastics facility for some serious gymnastics training after being inspired by Gabby Douglas’ Olympic win.

The gym doesn’t teach people over the age of 18 for insurance purposes and when Hoopz was told this she lost her mind.  She started to curse out the staff and became belligerent.  She got extremely loud, screaming at the top of her lungs how she needed to train for the 2016 Olympics.

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.  You could hear and see them screaming at each other.  I felt bad for him.

  • Grow up "Hoopz", really, what are you 12?
  • but are you rich in your spirit?....
  • Hi! My name is Juanita and yes I am that 1 good woman... I too have been on a search for that 1 special someone... If you woudl like to know more about me email me at nita 2cute@hotmail.com...
  • I hope you find the women that will give you the warmeth you need..It's a beautiful thing when you find that one!
  • So imagine when the princess doesn't get her way in everyday normal life things.....Shaq, you're no dummy to say "C-ya" She actually thought she could do what Gabby has done her whole life 12 hours a day? You got to be joking...this woman is nuts...If she was 16 and started she'd never make it. Stick to landing gold medal boyfriends.
  • She needs to stick to sukking dyks for a living, because that's what she does. These groupie hoes make their mistake when they try to...rise above their stations in life...go legit...

    They need to just do what they do, because somebody-gotta-do-it. The world needs hoes like it needs anyone else. She should have just stuck to being a groupie hoe and smashing Shaq. Her mouth got her into trouble.

    She's a loser, but I believe she will take the Superhead route and write a book about Flav and Shaq, etc. What else can she do? I don't think she'll land another baller, and she clearly isn't interested in stripping.
  • Shaq you are better off wihtout her....Your a very nice young man who deserves better. I met him years ago and he was so totally polite and very very respectful. There is someone out there better for you...
  • That's a smart move on Shaq's part.It will save him a lot of grief in the long run.
  • I did not read in this article that Shaq broke off the relationship. Did I miss something? Why couldn't it be that Hoopz broke up with him? She is a pretty woman and will not have a problem in finding someone else. I hate hearing of breakups. Maye they will reconcile. I am a hopeless romantic!
  • i'm sure shaq will be just fine. he seems like a real nice guy and he's pretty funny too. he won't have any problem replacing her.
  • Yaaawwwnn
  • on CNN last week the announcer asked her "Are you Shaq`s girl friend?" "Are you Shaq`s girl friend?" she said yes but why did you ask it twice? He replied "I didn`t."

  • Shaq like ghetto girls. His ex-wife was one & he cheated on her a lot & admitted it. However, he has to know this girl is not in his league and in it for the money. She has NO sense with this episode and a bad history to boot. Did she really think that sleeping with Shaq would equate to being the next Mrs.? At least Shaunie had some sense and put the time in to become his Mrs. and that included knowing how to behave in public.
  • Get yo life!!!! In my best Tamar Braxton voice noones ghetto especially not Shaunie
  • go back 2 u ex
  • Other than the two people involved, how does this impact anyone else's life? Booooorrrring.
  • Psycho bitch from hell........
  • This is news? She must really be good in other areas besides sitting in a sports venue and batting her eyes.

    Good riddence.
  • its news because its shaq... smh
  • she was just for fun anyway.....
  • Its better to have loved and lost, then live with a psycho for the rest of your life.
  • i believe she was acting a fool and it wasnt her first time doing so, but the last time shaq was going to deal with that bullshiiit
  • Shaq is a better man than me. I thought he was crazy anyway for even wanting mess with a Flava Flav "leftover". LOL!! Guess you could say that he retired from "Hoops" again, now off to the Hall-of-Fame.
  • Typical spoiled self-entitled woman! That's what happens when you go after most beautiful women! Deal with it men you all know that's what you want hanging off your arm!
  • Did Ashton Kutcher write this article? I feel like I've been punked...
