Shaquille O’Neal is nearly a free man, and he just needs the paperwork on his divorce to be processed.
According to TMZ.com Shaq and estranged wife Shaunie O’Neal have worked out the logistics of their divorce, which is being handled in Florida and California.
Custody for the couple’s children and visitation rights were negotiated in California. Details on that agreement are confidential, but a judgment was submitted last Monday.
Matters of spousal support and property, however, were settled in Florida, where Shaunie doesn’t stand to get as much as she could have in California. Florida is the last state where she and Shaq lived under the same roof, but she vacated to their California residence in early November just days before filing for divorce.
Either way, the only thing left to make Shaq and Shaunie’s divorce official is a Florida judge’s signature.
