After almost 7-years of marriage, Shaunie O’Neal, the wife of NBA star Shaquille O’Neal, is filing for legal separation.

According to TMZ, Shaunie is setting things up for a possible divorce, after citing in legal papers “irreconcilable differences.” She has reportedly already left Shaq, and has left their home in Florida to fly to Los Angeles where the papers were filed. The couple’s four children, who she has requested to receive full custody of, were pulled out of school and are in Los Angeles as well. How much she seeks in child and spousal support from Shaq, who recently applied to become a special deputy for Cuyahoga County, has not been determined. -Linda Hobbs
