On June 6, 2023, she was spotted having dinner at the posh Beverly Hills Hotel with none other than NBA great Shaquille O’Neal, per TMZ.

Alas, the duo don’t seem to be dating, despite the evening dinner date. Sources told the outlet that they are “not an item — they have been cool for a long time and just wanted to reconnect.” Incidentally, Shaq and his ex-wife Shaunie O’Neal were married at the Beverly Hills Hotel back in 2000. They divorced in 2011.

Here’s everything you need to know about the stunning influencer seen dining with Shaq.

Brittany dated PJ Washington.

Brittany and Charlotte Hornets’ PJ Washington had a whirlwind romance. In March of 2021, just one month after confirming their relationship via social media, they announced in separate Instagram posts that they were welcoming their first child. Both posts have since been deleted, and by May, they’d welcomed their child, a son. In July, they split, with PJ seemingly accusing her of “faking it all along” in a since-deleted tweet.

Speculation also swirled that she was pursuing child support, but in a November 2021 interview, she stated that she genuinely loved him. “I’ve always been in it for true love… I thought that was my guy,” she said during an episode of the Off the Record podcast with DJ Akademiks at the time.

She’s a former athlete.

According to the U.S. Sun, Brittany has an impressive athletic background of her own — she reportedly played at Jackson State University, winning the SWAC (Southwestern Athletic Conference) Championship back in 2010.

She’s had several high-profile romances.

Shaq and PJ are just two of the high-profile men Brittany has been seen hanging out with. According to The Sun, she’s also been linked to Trey Songz, Rihanna’s ex Chris Brown, James Harden, Lil Uzi Vert, and “Money In The Grave” rapper Drake.  

She’s a mother.

As mentioned above, Brittany is a mother to one adorable child, a now 2-year-old son, born in May of 2021. “Happy 2nd birthday to my baby,” she captioned a collection of photos and videos on May 5, 2023. “My son has inspired me to dig deeper and trust the whispers of my heart. I admire that he is headstrong, moves at his own pace, and approaches all things with curiosity. He has been one of my greatest teachers! Every present moment with him is truly a gift. I’m thankful we chose one another in this lifetime.”

She’s an actress.
