Via Page Six reports:
Shaquille O’Neal had his hands full and his complete attention on TV beauty Rocsi Diaz as he partied in New Orleans ahead of last night’s Super Bowl, Page Six can exclusively reveal. The 7-foot-1 basketball legend was seen canoodling with the stunning 5-foot-2 former “BET 106 & Park” host at a private bash at the Hookah Lounge on Saturday, attended by a series of celebs. One witness told us, “Shaq and Rocsi were holding hands at this private party and at a private table. They looked like an odd couple, but they seemed really into each other.” The former NBA star broke up with his fiancée Nicole ‘Hoopz’ Alexander in August. Shaq, a father of five, was previously married to “Basketball Wives” star Shaunie O’ Neal until 2009. Diaz, who was just named a new “Entertainment Tonight” co-host, was there reporting for the show. The Latin star briefly dated Eddie Murphy last summer. Her rep said, “Rocsi was there hosting and her free time was incredibly short because of her work with ET. I can confirm they [she and Shaq] are very good friends.”
We bet they are… the kind of good friends that call each other at three a.m. and call Hoopz for a triple play. SMH.
