Last week rumors of an ugly break-up between Basketball Wives producer Shaunie O’Neal and her very young, model boyfriend Marlon Yates began to swirl. It all started when Marlon posted two photos that carried some very questionable messages to his Instagram account. The wording on one of the photos read:
“Don’t get mad when I pull a you.”
The other photo depicted actor Mekhi Phifer in a scene from the popular Paid In Full movie. On top of the photo was a message that read:
“F*** out of here with that you love me sh**.”
Some perceived the seemingly random photo messages as some sort of cryptic memo or subliminal shot that Marlon was sending to his lady and break-up rumors soon followed. The couple has since come forward to slam the rumors and let the world know that they are still together.
“It’s not ok to make up stories about someone’s life and you haven’t even spoken with them. At first I was really upset. But now I have to just laugh,” Shaunie told Hip Hollywood.
“I’m just having fun on Instagram. But, if you want to know what’s going on with me and my relationship just call me, don’t just lie,” Marlon added.
Of course, no Shaunie O’Neal interview would be complete without a Basketball Wives plug. The mom of five went on to reveal that the world will be offered a glimpse into her relationship with Marlon when Season 5 of the show airs in August.
What do you think of Shaunie and Marlon responding to break-up rumors?
So this story is literally getting strung together by a single, brittle thread but we figure it’s still worth a looksi. Some blogs are starting to speculate that Shaunie O’Neil’s young lover, Marlon Yates, is trading in his Miami castmate for a member of the LA cast because rumor has it, he may have something going on with Draya.
The suspicion is based on a few odd tweets that Draya sent out which are a smidge cryptic, but if you wanted to read through the lines you could pull together a heck of a story, like a lot of sites are. Draya said:
“@MarlonYatesJr lol. No I’m chillin. Impatient if anything. Never mad.”
“@MarlonYatesJr marlon I’m confused. What am I mad about?”
The thing is Marlon’s tweets to her aren’t visible, which means either Draya decided to tweet responses to him rather than DM him back or he deleted the messages he sent in the first place, and we all know deleted tweets means you were sending something you had no business tweeting in the first place. There was also another message that seemed a little shady. Draya retweeted one of Marlon’s tweets and added her own seemingly sarcastic message:
RT @MarlonYatesJr: I Love My Woman……… <<— #thingsamansays
Draya could also be shouting him out but I highly doubt she’s cool enough with the couple to be all up in Shaunie’s romantic life like that. But, like I said before, there isn’t a whole lot of meat to this story and it probably doesn’t help that Draya has a rep for being every athlete’s favorite woman. All I know is if it does come out that she’s messing with Marlon, Shaunie will probably wipe out that entire LA cast. She’s already got Laura, who supposedly crept with Shaq during their marriage, on the team, I doubt she would employ another one of her men’s mistress, unless she’s really trying to keep that pimp hand strong.
What do you think? Could there be anything to these suggestive tweets?
