ST LOUIS (LALATE) – Are Shaq and Hoopz aka Nicole Nikki Alexander engaged? Shaq and Hoopz dating reports heated up LALATE last week. But today, the St Louis Post Dispatch is reporting that Shaq may have proposed to an unidentified woman in Bridgeton just days ago.
Original Story Below
Bridgeton is a community west of St Louis’ Lambert International Airport. Shaq was in town last week for Cardinals Albert Pujols and Dee Dee Pujols’ 8th annual Pujols Family Foundation golf tournament.
On Monday night at 11:30 pm local time, Sam and Majdolin David, new owners of the Sahara Mediterranean Cuisine and Hookah Lounge in Bridgeton, had an unlikely visitor. They claim Shaq showed up with a party of three women and another man. In a report dubbed “Hookah Heaven”, Sam David tells the St Louis Post Dispatch‘s Deb Peterson that he thinks Shaq proposed to his girlfriend that night.
“I think he may have proposed to his girlfriend. He brought a chair into the middle of the dance floor and he put a ring on her finger.”
David said he knew who Shaq was but didn’t recognize the woman receiving the ring. Peterson doesn’t indicate if she showed David a picture of Hoopz (Flavor of Love, I Love Money) for that interview. David says Shaq and Co were laughing and enjoyed dessert and hookah.
So was this hookah love Hoopz or a hookah error? It was days ago that LALATE cited a report that claimed that the two have been dating for “a few months”, have been to Las Vegas together and to Hoopz’s hometown of Alcoa, Tennessee. Hoopz previously battled tape scandal allegations following her reality tv series.
Hoopz earned $250,000 for her win of I Love Money, a reality tv appearance which followed up Flavor of Love. So could Shaq now be dating, or even engaged, to the former object of Flav Flavor’s attraction? Neither are speaking. But Hoopz said after winning the cash that “$250,000 is a lot of money but there’s more out there. I’m saving it all.”
