Shaquille O’Neal vehemently defended his ex-wife when Channing Crowder, co-host of The Pivot Podcast, made comments about the basketball star’s divorce from Shaunie O’Neal. Crowder tried to blame Shaunie for the fallout, saying, “It’s two people in a divorce.”

Shaq, however, took the blame for the fallout.

“I’ve never talked about this, and I’m glad you guys asked because I don’t mind talking about this, but I was bad,” he said. “She was awesome. She really was. It was all me.”
