Would you pay your wife not to work?
Veteran NBA star, Shaquille O’Neal has revealed why he paid his ex-wife Shaunie O’Neal $300K a year to not work.
According to Shaq, he didn’t want his ex-wife to work when they were together. If he can afford to let his woman stay in the house and be taken care of, why let her work for $100K a year?
He made the above revelation on The Big Podcast with Shaq via Fade Away World;
““You have to let a woman be a woman coz I’m a king because of how my mother worked. I only want her to do one thing, stay fine. I was the type, ‘you don’t need to work, whatever you need I’ll give it to you’ because I’m like the King of England mentally.“
“I know now, it is a mistake. I’m so big on my people. If I can protect you by keeping you in a house, stay in house. What you working for how much you make in a year? 100,000? Here’s 300,000.““

There is more;
Shaquille O’Neal has always stated he’s very protective of the people he loves, doing whatever he can to help those who need him. This goes to the next level when it comes to the women in his life. The Los Angeles Lakers legend has always made sure to take care of them, no matter what.
Interesting. When I talk to most black men these days they really want a woman who makes a lot of money. They don’t see the benefit of paying a woman to not work. They’d rather her work, him be neglected, cheat and them complain she doesn’t have time to cater to him….or that she’s too masculine. Men think so much about money these days in terms of the woman bringing in money, that most of the single ones don’t even understand how the money divinely comes to them..
What I love about Shaunie is that she educated herself on business with the extra time she had getting paid not to work.
Anyway, Shaq cheated on Shaunie and the revenge costed his a pretty penny.
