Basketball superstar SHAQUILLE O’NEAL has filed for divorce from his wife, SHAUNIE, according to the Miami Herald.
The couple married in December 2002 and have four children.
Shaq currently plays for the Miami Heat. “The marriage between the parties is irretrievably broken,” says Shaq’s petition, filed Tuesday by his attorney. 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 O’Neals live 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 from the LA Lakers. It is for sale — No. 32 is asking $32 million.



A judge has approved a $545,000 arbitration award to Jennifer Lopez in a lawsuit against first husband Ojani Noa. Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Michael C. Solner also issued a permanent injunction barring Noa from publishing negative, denigrating or disparaging details about Lopez. Noa had planned to publish a tell-all book claiming the 39-year-old singer-actress had several affairs. Solner approved the award, which was recommended in April by a court-ordered arbitrator. Lopez’s lawsuit accused Noa of violating a previous lawsuit settlement that prevented him from revealing private information about their relationship. Noa and Lopez married in February 1997 and divorced 11 months later. She is married now to singer Marc Anthony.



The baby-voiced Jamaican-bred singer moves beyond MySpace.
The king of MySpace superstardom, SEAN KINGSTON’s self-titled debut album is the hottest pop-rap music out now. That is, if there is such a thing.
The 17-year-old star recently performed his chart-topping first single, “Beautiful Girls,” on the finale of “America’s Got Talent.” Tracked by the music of BEN E. KING’s “Stand By Me,” the tune pays homage to the not-so-bright side of teenage love: suicidal thoughts, break-ups and lies. However, like most of the album, “Beautiful Girls” manages to come off as fun, upbeat and largely likable.
According to the singer’s Web site,, he began his trek to a recording career by sending MySpace messages more than three times a day to hit producer J.R. ROTEM, responsible for RIHANNA’s smash hit “S.O.S.” Rotem invited Sean to Los Angeles, where Kingston was already in preparation to move and pursue music full-force. Not long after their meeting, J.R. signed Sean as the flagship artist to his Epic Records imprint Beluga Heights, and a star was born.
His second single, “Me Love,” uses the music from LED ZEPPELIN’s “D’yer Mak’er” and is a follow-up to his first single with its rhetorical question to a cheating love interest in a BOB MARLEY-esque plea, “Why’d you have to stray away from home?” His Jamaican accent is most prominent on this song and very much welcome — it adds a dynamic to the otherwise familiar voice of a young male pop star.



The “American Idol” winner will release her first album just in time for the holidays.
JORDIN SPARKS charmed the nation with her amazing vocals and joyful personality to become the new “American Idol,” now the Glendale, AZ, native is set to release her first solo album later this year.
“‘American Idol’ has truly been a life-altering experience,” the bubbly 17-year-old said in a statement. “I can’t wait to share this next chapter of my story with all the fans that have supported me so far.”
Although she won the contest months ago, Jordin just signed the official deal with Jive Records and 19 Recordings.
Jordin’s debut album is slated for release in November. The first single, “Tattoo,” is already getting airplay.



Sean “Diddy” Combs and his former girlfriend Kim Porter were under the same roof last weekend for the mogul’s annual White Party at his East Hampton estate. Last we heard of Porter, she had taken off to the West coast in a huff with their twin babies in tow. According to the New York Daily News, Porter and the twins were back at Diddy’s house among the celebrity guests on hand for the party. “Diddy and Kim looked very lovey-dovey. We’ll see if Kim can stay strong,” a witness tells the newspaper. Other notables at the party were Donna Karan (who took a spill on the dance floor), Lil’ Kim, Mariah Carey, Busta Rhymes, Tommy Lee, and Star Jones and Al Reynolds.
