Typically, the summer time is a time when young men want to be out here. In these streets, parlaying with one woman and then the next. But things change as we get older. And men who were once thottin’ and boppin find themselves wanting to me settled and stationary.

That certainly appears to be the case with former NBA All Star Shaquille O’Neal. Last summer, he seemed to profess his love for his ex-wife Shaunie O’Neal, saying that he was going to wear a particular suit when he marries her.

Shaunie responded with a polite but swift curve.

“Actually this suit is more fitting for next seasons star of The Bachelor on @abcnetwork #justsayin #wedidthatalready.”

We thought, with that type of public declaration, that perhaps Shaq would have gotten the message and kept it moving. But the two do share children together. They’ll always be in each other’s lives. So, there’s a good chance that he might not be able to shake his ex.

Not only were the two seen in a very loving position, it was Shaq’s commentary about the pose that made tongues start wagging and sent fingers flying.

Interesting. At first I thought, they could have been caught up in a moment of friendly banter. Their son just had a successful heart surgery, perhaps they’re feeling particularly close to each other these days. Maybe there’s nothing else to it.

But after the image was posted on The Shade Room, Shaq stepped into the spot to provide a little insight.

As much as I’m here for couples making it work, this particular social media flex annoyed me. Even in the context of a marriage, people don’t belong to one another. But I understand colloquialisms, expressions and sentiments that aren’t entirely true that we accept as fact. So if we’re going to do that, accept this type of language, then we should acknowledge the fact that was a time when Shaunie was Shaq’s. And he didn’t treat her as he should have.

The affairs were numerous. There was the pain she expressed at being confronted, repeatedly, with his cheating. And I can’t say for sure but I’m willing to bet that there were chances she gave him.

Now, after all these years, with a couple of other relationships under both of their belts, Shaq wants to profess his love for his ex-wife again.

I’m not making any suggestions about what Shaunie should or shouldn’t do, but if I were her, if Shaq was hellbent on making public statements, I would want him to forgo expressing ownership and instead talk about the regrets he had about the actions that caused him to lose me in the first place. Then again, public declarations are necessary in this type of situation at all. Handle it at home.

But until the tow of them get things sorted out, he can chill on the possessiveness.
