I recently told you that Shaq’s ex-wife has a new MUCH YOUNGER man (and yes ladies he’s hot). The couple were recently spotted on vacation in Maui and Shaunie tells PEOPLE magazine, they took “a big step” in their relationship by going to vacation together for the first time.
He’s very mature,” says Shaunie, who adds that the couple’s age difference is a benefit. “The age thing keeps it fun. The energy level, being out on the beach. He is working out all the time and he inspires me [to work out].”
Shaunie, who executive produces and stars in VH1′s new reality series, Basketball Wives, which premieres April 11, met Yates through a mutual family friend last November, the same month she filed for divorce against Shaq.
