On the basketball court, Shaq was one of the most dominating forces the NBA has ever seen! So why wouldn't that be the case in his house??
The big man's ex-wifey Shaunie O'Neal has her own reality series on VH1 starting up soon titled The Shaunie Project, but the former basketballer has one HUGE rule for her.
Their kids are NOT allowed to be on camera!!
Sources close to the two say Shaunie has been trying to convince Shaq that the series will be harmless and lighthearted, with episodes focusing on things like the kids teaching her the importance of working out! She even compared it to The Cosby Show!
However, the Big Diesel says he's worried that the show will portray them as a dysfunctional family and will be additional stress for their children, some of whom are already struggling to keep their grades up!
Shaunie is now looking to take legal action and is rushing to court to try and get permission to get the kids on camera because shooting starts in January!
We can definitely see why Shaq would be hesitant to let his kids grow up in the spotlight, and it might not be a bad idea to keep them away from the cameras until they're a bit older!
