“I did not want my kids to be from a broken home. I was willing to suffer and make the best of the situation for their sake.”
According to several credible sources, a divorce settlement has been reached between Shaquille O’neal and his estranged wife, Shaunie O’neal. Per reports, the former couple have reached an agreement on all terms of the divorce, including property, custody and support.
The divorce settlement comes less than six months after Shaunie filed for legal separation in November of 2009. Since then, Shaunie and Shaq have become friends and are trying to be the best parents they can be.
“We are becoming friends, and it’s nice because it’s something we really lacked in our marriage. I enjoy being able to talk openly to him, and i think we’ve both learned a lot from each other during this time. i tease him now and tell him, ‘You’re a good person with a great heart, but a terrible husband. Please, don’t get married again-just date.’ We both want to be the best parents we can be.”
