Shaq has been having a steamy affair with Dominica Westling, for the past 18 months, RadarOnline.com has learned exclusively. O`Neal was still married to soon-to-be-ex-wife Shaunie when the affair began approximately 18 months ago. A source familiar with the situation told RadarOnline.com exclusively that the couple not only exchanges steamy emails but also has cybersex using a Web camera. When contacted for comment, Westling said: "I understand where you`re coming from but I just don`t want to talk about anything. I`d rather not comment." RadarOnline.com also contacted Shaq via email, who replied:
"no comment" when asked about his affair with Westling.
“Shaq always gave the impression that he had a lot of girlfriends,” one source tells RadarOnline.com exclusively. “And that his wife knew about them and was OK with it, to a certain extent.
“He was a real gentlemen to the girls and really looked after them, he would often deposit money directly into their bank accounts. A lot of the girls were struggling actresses and models and when you’re in that situation and you are worrying about paying your bills a $10,000 donation from Shaq can go a long way.”
But not all the mistresses cashed in on Shaq’s generosity. A source close to Shaq’s beautiful Swedish model mistress, Dominica tells RadarOnline.com, “Dominica didn’t want money from Shaq. She is an extremely sweet, kind and compassionate person and was involved with Shaq because she was in love with him, not for money...
“Shaq would take her to his house when his wife was away and she would often text me from there with pictures - once she sent a really cute one of her wearing his huge shoes!
“None of her friends ever met Shaq but Dom would show us her text messages from him, and they were always very sweet and loving.
“She’s a really great girl and it’s a shame that this situation happened and she is looking like one of Tiger’s mistresses, when in fact the situation is totally different and she’s a lot better than that. She was never a big party girl or a big clubber. I think it’s also important to point out that she was a lot younger as well, things started with Shaq back in 2007.
