“The gym doesn’t teach people over the age of 18 for insurance purposes and when Hoopz was told this she lost her mind. She started to curse out the staff and became belligerent. She got extremely loud, screaming at the top of her lungs how she needed to train for the 2016 Olympics. Shaq was embarrassed, he dropped his head like he was ashamed of her. He didn’t say anything while they were in the gym, but once they got to their car a heated argument took place. You could hear and see them screaming at each other. I felt bad for him.”Another witness confirms the story. While the breakup did not happen that day, it appears Shaq’s annoyance with her behavior eventually led to the breakup that Hoopz confirmed with the Boston Globe. (source)
Shaq and Hoopz break it off. Shaquille O’neal and Nicole “Hoopz” Alexander finally break it off after an issue Hoopz ran in to at a local gymnastics facility where they live. Apparently after Gabby Douglass won all her gold medals, it inspired Hoopz, and she wanted to get trained for some Olympic type sports. They told her they only train children under 18 and she went off according to some sources. Here is what happened according to an eyewitness at the gym.
