Shaq Files for Divorce!!!

According to the Miami Herald, Shaquille O'Neal, the (Miami) Heat center has filed to divorce Shaunie, his wife of nearly five years.

"The marriage between the parties is irretrievably broken," says Shaq's petition, filed Tuesday by his attorney.

The O'Neals have four children together — Shareef, 7, Amirah, 5, Shaqir, 4, and Me'Arah, 1. Shaq has a daughter, Taahirah, and Shaunie has a son, Myles, from previous relationships.

The O'Neals live on Miami Beach's exclusive Star Island. They bought an $18.8 million estate in the summer of '04, at the time of his trade to the Heat from the LA Lakers.

It is for sale — No. 32 is asking $32 million.

Shaq, 35, and Shaunie, 32, wed Dec. 26, 2002, in a lavish ceremony at the Beverly Hills Hotel.

Shaq, then with the Lakers, gave Shaunie a ring with 17 carats of diamonds.

The two have a "Cohabitation/Prenuptial Agreement and Acknowledgment of Property Disclosure and Waiver of Further Disclosure," the petition says.

A copy of their agreement "will be filed ... under seal" — if the court allows — and "contains extensive provisions providing for confidentiality and non-disclosure.

In the petition, O'Neal refers to the Star Island mansion as "the former marital home."

Shaunie, he says in the petition, has been "secretive about her assets ... particularly with respect to certain properties owned or titled in either her name alone or in other entities."

Shaq wants the court to order Shaunie to give a "correct accounting of all money, funds, stocks, bonds, and other securities (including bearer securities)" that she came into during the marriage.

Shaq makes $20 million a year, with three years left on a five-year contract worth $100 million. Shaunie should be "primary residential custodian" of their children — meaning they'd live with her — and he should get "liberal rights of visitation," he says.

According to the Herald, neither the O'Neals nor Shaq's attorney, Ira Elegant, could be reached for comment. No word on who represents Shaunie.

The case is under the jurisdiction of Miami-Dade Circuit Judge Roberto Pineiro.
