Renner dated Charlotte Hornets’ PJ Washington, and the two had a whirlwind romance.

They announced they were expecting a child just one month after confirming their relationship. However, the pair split a few months later.

According to TMZ, O'Neal and Renner were seen having dinner at a posh Beverly Hills Hotel. They reportedly spent nearly two hours there.

The 31-year-old was wearing a stunning white dress, while the NBA legend was rocking jeans and a hoodie.

Are Shaq and Renner dating?

TMZ reported the pair are not dating and simply wanted to reconnect. Interestingly, Shaq and Shaunie got married at the Beverly Hills Hotel in 2002.

Rumors have circulated in the past that Renner dated sports stars Colin Kaepernick, James Harden, Ben Simmons, and Jamal Murray, per Marca.

Shaq recently opened up on his divorce from Shaunie. In 2021, she announced her engagement to pastor Keion Henderson after they first began dating in 2020.

"...I was bad. She was awesome. She really was. It was all me... I wasn't protecting her and protecting those vows. Sometimes when you live that double life, you get caught up. I'm not going to say it was her; it was all me," the NBA legend said, via Vanity Fair.

Shaq's beautiful message to Barkley

Sports Brief earlier reported on O'Neal paying tribute to Charles Barkley, a former NBA star and one of his close friends.

During an appearance on NBA TV during the 2023 NBA Finals, Shaq called the 1993 MVP 'the older brother he never had'.

O'Neal also described the relationship between their mothers and how he and Barkley went from feuding to a strong bond.
