Shaquille O'Neal spends $24,300 per month on gas??

How does Shaquille O'Neal spend his money? Does Shaq spend $110,000 a month, including $24,300 on gas?? "Extra" got their hands on an affidavit in his divorce proceeding and according to the document he does! Here are some of his other expenditures:

$22,000 on maid service
$17,000 on clothes
$110,000 on vacations
$12,775 on food
$6,730 on dry cleaning
$1500 on cable?
$26,500 for babysitting

Let me state again, those are MONTHLY expenses. Thats a lot of eating, watching tv and wearing of clothes. His monthly income is close to $2 million.

I admit I was a little puzzled by the monthly expense at the gas station--$23,000. That works out to about 6,000 gallons of gas, or about 200 gallons a day. He must have more Hummers than Gov. Schwarzenegger.

But the figure that really boggled my mind was his monthly cable bill, which came to $1,500. What on earth could you watch to generate a tab like that? Even if you watch adult fare, you'd have to see about five hours a day every single day of the month. If you miss one day, you'd have to see 10 hours the next. Even professional athletes don't have enough energy to justify that kind of expenditure.

So what is Shaq watching for $1,500 a month? I know that HD costs a little more and you get dinged for extra boxes for each TV set. Still, you'd have to get every cable package known to mankind, including programs in Armenian and Chinese, to even start to approach a monthly cable bill like that.

I hope that, in the future, "Extra" can dig a little more and find out what Shaq watches that adds up to a cable bill like that. Regardless, that's got to go down as a record nobody will break for a long time.
