Finally, Nicole Alexander revealed that her to be husband Shaq cheated on her with no heads up and like any other woman it was unacceptable and hurtful. Currently, she is in a relationship with Ovince Saint, a UFC fighter. During an interview, she revealed,
His name is Ovince St. Preaux. We’ve been together a little over a year. I wasn’t looking for anything. I was just happy I was going to be focused on me. Doesn’t it always happen that way? The minute you’re like no, I’m just going to focus on me, career, and that’s it. And then, oh hi! You meet someone and then one thing leads to another.
Moreover, she added:
I took a chance on love again, even after the past, which is really hard. But he is so patient and I love him to death for that. To be able to just be there and to still be okay with me letting all that go. And still loving me. He has a big career on his hands too, [he is a UFC fighter], but we’re juggling the time between our relationship and our careers between each other.
The Past is history, and now she has successfully moved on from it. Congratulations Nicole and Ovince Saint for the love they found!#TV Personality #Shaquille O'Neal #Chronicle
