In a recent podcast, Shaquille O’Neal said his kids are upset with him because he tells them, “We ain’t rich. I’m rich.” For the record, his estimated net worth is $400-million.

The way Shaq sees it, his kids have to get their education. “I would like a doctor, somebody to own a hedge fund, a pharmacist, a lawyer, someone that owns multiple businesses, someone to take over my business,” he said. “But I tell them I’m not going to hand it to you. You gotta earn it.”

Shaq has 6 children.

In Utah, a 31-year-old male was arrested for shooting and assaulting his own father. It seems that dad was bringing home an order of chicken wings, but that the order was wrong…allegedly.

At first, the two argued about the screw up, but then the son reportedly grabbed a gun & luckily missed the father, dad ducked the shot, but the bullet went through a wall & lodged in the neighbor’s dishwasher. From there, dad tried to wrestle the gun away, but the kid got off two more shots. As dad ran off.
