In 2007, a female writer for Newsweek, Allison Samuels, had a professional relationship with Shaq. She covered him for years and even helped his mother writer her biography (must have missed that). But the relationship was evidentially more than that. According to leaked emails obtained by The Miami New Times, Samuels was either trying to bang Shaq or hook him up with other semi-famous women. At the time, Shaq was still with his wife. However, he didn't want Samuels, his wife, or any other small fry. He wanted he to put the big porterhouse in Rihanna, a recently legal young fawn, who at the time just sprang onto the scene with "Umbrella." Meanwhile, his career was reaching the point of "I've stayed to long, haven't I?"
The email, which was posted in The Miami New Times and takes a bit of concentration and imagination to read, is below. Kudos to Samuels for using her Newsweek email address in her back-and-forth with MrBig@big32.com.
Samuels: Hi. Sesslielopez@gmail.com [FYI, the email address bounces back]. Or I can give her your info? She’s not in the country until Wed so maybe then is better because she hasn’t answered me about something else I asked her about. Also she asked about your personal life and I told her_whatever it is_-I’m sure you had it under control. Still waiting on Robinne’s response.
Shaq: Sesslie aintdat fine whts robins last name
Samuels: You are so wrong! Robinne Lee_she’s on Tyler Perry’s show sometimes. Do you know Lauren London_I don’t_but I know James Lassiter knows how to reach her. You ever dealt with her_is she cool? Sharon Leal??
Shaq: Loren is d wade’s girl im not wrong sesslie aint my type u r
Samuels: What about Gabrielle and Dwyane?
Shaq: He gottem all I want u or rihanna
Samuels: Rihanna is too young_19– she is just legal and you know I’m very chatty and you said you didn’t like that!!!!!
Shaq: Yeah but I told u had a crush on me and u wouldnt chat about us i kn o u
Samuels: No_I’m chatty in a relationship_not to others. You just decided I had a crush on you huh?? When did you decide that?
If Shaq approached his foul shooting the same way he approaches writing, it's no wonder he f*cking blew at it. I'm no Wordsworth, but compared to Shaq, 4-year-olds writing with crayons on construction paper write more coherently. I get that it is an email, but this is beyond bad. He either doesn't give a shit, or his mentally challenged character in "Blue Chips" was loosely based on reality. And Rihanna? Come on, Bro. Famous or not, have you forgotten what the f*ck you look like?
