Shaquille O’Neal confesses his crush on famous Hollywood star
On the latest episode of The Big Podcast with Shaq, Big Diesel was joined by his regular assistants Nischelle Turner and Spice Adams. During the podcast, Adams told Shaq that he could now skip to Taylor Swift’s direct messages, as she had recently broken up with her long-time boyfriend, Joe Alwyn.
In response, Shaq said: “Wait. Speaking of going into DM, Nischelle was next to my crush and didn’t even speak for me.”
Later, he added: “She was on the flight with Charlize Theron…”. Turner interrupted the Big Man and claimed that she had sent him a text about sitting behind Theron on a plane. The 15x All-Star responded: “I was like ‘Wire me up’ and she was like ‘Nah, I can’t.’
Meanwhile, Turner added that the Mad Max: Fury Road actress was with her two children on the plane. This led Shaq to say half jokingly, “I have a lot of stepdad money. I’m not worried about all that. It seems that the four-time NBA champion was ready to take responsibility for Theron’s two cute children, August Theron and Jackson Theron.
By the way, Charlize Theron dated actor Sean Penn from 2013 to 2015. The veteran actress has dated plenty of notable celebrities, but it remains to be seen if Shaq ends up on the lucky guy list.
Shaq might have revealed who he had a crush on, but is the Hall of Famer currently dating anyone? Let’s take a look.
Who is Shaq currently dating? Big Diesel has reportedly been dating Hollywood actress Annie Illonzeh for a while now.

He has acted in popular shows like Charlie’s Angels, How I Met You, Mother, etc. Furthermore, the 39-year-old was also a part of popular TV series like Empire, Arrow, and Person of Interest.
