Shaquille O’Neal will be honest. He was the reason his marriage to ex-wife Shaunie Henderson ended.

Speaking to People for a cover story, the Basketball Hall of Famer called himself a “d—head” while married to Henderson, who was on the TV show “Basketball Wives”.

“I was a jerk,” O’Neal said. “You don’t know how good you have something until it’s gone.”

O’Neal has acknowledged her mistakes in the past, telling “The Pivot Podcast” that “she was awesome. She really was. It was all me.”

O’Neal didn’t delve into the details of the end of his first marriage, but he did note that he wasn’t “protecting those vows.”
