The 25 Most Dysfunctional Relationships in Sports History

5. Shaq and Shaunie O'Neal

After Shaq and Shaunie ended their seven-year marriage, the 15-time all-star would say of his relationship, "At one time my ex-wife and I were happy, but I admit it—I was a guy." We think that's code for he cheated on her. Supposedly after hiring a private investigator, Shaunie discovered that Shaq was sexting Vanessa Lopez, a woman who would later sue Shaunie for harassment. Shaq's currently seeing a former "winner" of VH1's Flavor of Love, Nicole "Hoopz" Alexander, while Shaunie is a featured personality of VH1's Basketball Wives. If you haven't noticed by now, VH1 has an Illuminati-like influence on dysfunctional athlete marriages.
