Shaquille O’Neal is special on a physical level, and his maddening dimensions can easily intimidate anyone. A woman had explained in particular that she could never sleep with him… because of his feet. You don’t hear that every day!
In addition to being one of the best players in history, Shaquille O’Neal has also had some success with the ladies. In total, the former Laker is thus the father of six children, whom he had with three different women. His relationship with Shaunie O’Neal has been the most stable and longest of all, however, with the two having been married between 2002 and 2009 with three children conceived together.
However, the ex-wife of Big Diesel had created controversy around him a few years ago, accusing him of cheating on her with a woman named Laura Govan. The latter was then in a relationship with another NBA star, Gilbert Arenas, and had participated in the show Basketball Wives which Shaunie O’Neal was the producer. Friend with the Shaqtus, she would have ended up starting a secret relationship with him when the quadruple champion was not yet single.
Shaq’s feet too scary for Laura Govan
Interestingly, the accused woman responded to all these rumors. Govan has of course denied everything outright, but his justification for this is quite… original.
Hell, no! Have you seen his feet? How do you want to sleep with someone who has feet like that? I mean, I saw him in his sandals. I love Shaquille to death but I would never sleep with Shaquille.
It’s not every day that you hear an argument like that, that’s for sure. It must be said that the Big Aristotle’s feet are enough to frighten some, given that the colossus measures downright 63. A size absolutely unimaginable for ordinary mortals… Beyond that, Govan claims to have never maintained such relationship with the Hall of Famer, even saying that was not the nature of it at all:
It’s funny because I feel like when I saw him and was with him, we just had a good time. We are like brother and sister. I just think Shaunie had her own agenda and did things for the show. And that’s what it is. But at this point, three years later, I don’t want to talk about him.
Instead of being lovers, the two adults will therefore rather have shared a brotherly relationship. It is obviously impossible to prove that the woman’s statements are true, but on the other hand, such closeness can indeed sometimes lead to confusion. Anyway, all that is in the past now, each having rebuilt their lives on their side. The former big man would also be in a relationship with actress Annie Ilonzeh, for a few months.
Clearly, Shaquille O’Neal’s feet are capable of scaring women out of bed. This is a very strange “skill” of Big Diesel, which could however well clear him of these accusations of infidelity.
