Break Up News Torpedoes Hoopz Boxing Deal
Earlier this week news spread that Shaquille O'Neal was over his months long fling with Flava of Love winner Nicole "Hoopz" Alexander and had had her things removed from his home. That break-up just cost Hoopz $20,000...
Yesterday we wrote how Shaq and his fiancée Nicole “Hoopz” Alexander were set to step into the boxing ring in April. We were told she signed contracts today with Celebrity Boxing Ring for a staggering $20,000, which is one of the highest fees they have paid. Clearly Shaq turning up was part of the deal.
But, guess what? Shaq dumped her recently and understandably, the people at Celebrity Boxing Ring feel duped because she failed to inform them today- and she was demanding her money.
Damon Fedman tells us exclusively how the events unfolded. “This is a crazy situation, and yes, i feel duped, ” he says. “She signed the contact today, and then news started to spread on the internet that they split. Now she isn’t returning texts or phone calls.”
“She was rushing us to get her the money, and thankfully we didn’t because it’s clear she was using Shaq to keep herself in the spotlight. We’ve never paid a celebrity that much and only did it because of Shaq.”
