Today's batch of Shaquille O'Neal emails makes yesterday's entry -- in which the giant basketball superstar man-child played pick-a-mistress with Newsweek scribe Allison Samuels -- look downright scholarly. This morning, we're embracing our inner TMZ.
According to emails and texts sealed in court, but which we were able to obtain anyway: On February 1, 2009, Shaquille O'Neal -- who was still married -- received a message from model and long-rumored goomah Dominica Westling. Behold, a transcript of a conversation between "DIESELDOGMAFIA" and "swedishdoll":
Westling: I feel bad we lost contact. Hope you are well. I live in LA now so hit me up if you ever come out there
Shaq: O my god were r u can i have u bak i miss u to whts yur number pls baby i want u bak do u love me
Dominica: Yes I wanna see you, you know I can never forget about you. My number is [redacted by us]
[Twenty-three days later, Dominica sends Shaq an email with only the subject line "Muuaaahhh" and a photo that, judging by his reaction, didn't depict a tray of freshly baked cookies.]
Shaq: Where can I cum at when I c u
Dominica: All over me, where do you wanna cum?
Shaq: In u foreva
Dominica: I miss that
We weren't able to reach Westling, who's no longer using the email addresses and whose phone does not allow voicemail.
We sent these emails to Shaq's Miami attorney Benjamine Reid for comment early last night and haven't heard back.
"In u foreva" is some Shaq Fu poetry.
