Did Kobe snitchin’ have anything to do with this? The Miami Herald is reporting Shaq filed for divorce today:

Miami Heat center Shaquille O’Neal wants to divorce Shaunie, his wife of nearly five years. ”The marriage between the parties is irretrievably broken,” says his petition, filed Tuesday by attorney Ira Elegant. The O’Neals have four children together — Shareef, 7, Amirah, 5, Shaqir, 4, and Me’Arah, 1. Shaq has a daughter, Taahirah, and Shaunie has a son, Myles, from previous relationships.

The family lives on Miami Beach’s exclusive Star Island. They bought an $18.8 million estate in the summer of ’04, at the time of his trade to the Heat. It is for sale — No. 32 is asking $32 million.

In the petition, O’Neal refers to the Star Island mansion as “the former marital home.”Shaunie, he says, has been ”secretive about her assets . . . particularly with respect to certain properties owned or titled in either [her] name alone or in other entities.” He wants the court to order Shaunie to give a ”correct accounting of all money, funds, stocks, bonds, and other securities (including bearer securities)” that she came into during the marriage.

Seems like Shaunie was stashing away for a rainy day. Baby Mamas and wifey’s are getting smarter. Hopefully, he has a better pre-nup than this dummy.
