Shaquille O’Neal Dumps Hoopz for “Bad Girl” Natalie Nunn

Talk about trouble in paradise.

There’s rumors swirling that Boston Celtics big man and future Hall of Famer Shaquille O’Neal has ended his engagement to former VH1 reality show winner Nikki “Hoopz” Alexander. Back in August The Hoop Doctors gave you some steamy pics of the “Big Shamrock’s” new main squeeze.  No reason was given for the break-up of the two high profile celebrities even though they seemed happy just this past Halloween when they twit pic-ed everyone their hilarious video of the big man in drag and Hoopz as his male sidekick Hopz.

After a messy divorce with longtime wife Shaunie, now of “Basketball Wives” fame, Shaq made headlines this past August when he was continually seen with “Hoopz” Alexander and even reportedly proposed to the aspiring model and actress.

No one but the two people in question know the whole truth but only after a few months Shaq has asked for the diamond ring back he gave to her estimated at nearly $500k. Shaq popped the question to Alexander at a swanky Bridgeton, Connecticut restaurant back in September.

It didn’t take long for the big man to move on to the next female as he is reportedly now linked to Natalie Nunn, of “Bad Girls Club” fame. For those of you who don’t watch the show, Natalie is arguably the baddest of them all, known for cussing out other houseguests, throwing household items, and even spitting in a girls face. Some have already questioned as to if the new relationship is some sort of publicity stunt but Nunn is no stranger to athletes as she has been linked to NFL star Vernon Davis, singer Chris Brown, and Denver Nuggets point guard Ty Lawson.
