Shaquille O’Neal talks about Kanye West’s love for Kim Kardashian

Like Shaq claims, Kim Kardashian and Pete Davidson broke up after 9 months together. After the Lakers legend talked about his prediction coming true, Turner said that the news is everywhere. But the NFL veteran was confused about Kanye West’s deleted post about Pete Davidson.

West made headlines earlier this week when he shared a fake New York Times front page, reading, “SKETE DAVIDSON DEAD AT AGE 28.” However, he later deleted the Instagram post. Adams couldn’t comprehend the superstar’s actions. Turner said that West was rude for that post. However, Shaq supported West. He said, “What? Baby when you are a rapper you are rude. That’s what you do… I like that. Because you know what? He’s still in love with that woman.”
