Shaquille O’Neal has filed for divorce from Shaunie O’Neal, his wife of nearly five years.

“The marriage between the parties is irretrievably broken,” says his petition, filed Tuesday by attorney Ira Elegant.

The easy (and immature) joke here, of course, is to blame a certain former teammate of O’Neal’s for the breakup of the telegenic couple. You’d think that I’m above making said joke, and you’d be wrong.

Speaking of immature jokes, can you imagine being Shaunie’s rebound guy and trying to replace Shaq? Yikes! Talk about pressure.
