Los Angeles Lakers legend Shaquille O’Neal had a mysterious response to an excerpt from his ex-wife Shaunie Henderson’s memoir, where she questioned her feelings of love for him.

However, Henderson clarified the quote to People, stating it was “taken out of context.” In her book, “UNDEFEATED: Changing the Rules and Winning on My Own Terms,” she reflected, “Looking back, I don’t know that I was ever really in love with the man.”

“My book is my truth, and when I was talking to my friend yesterday, I was like, developing an opinion and a comment from content with no context will show you a lot of people’s intelligence and unintelligence, right?” she said. “There was no context to just that one quote that I said, and I think that sadly, people are taking my words out of context.”

“I’m not a word girl,” she added. “I’m a character girl, and since I’ve left the marriage of Shaquille, my character has spoken for itself.”
