Shaquille O’Neal hit up an L.A. hot spot for dinner on Tuesday … and the NBA legend was joined by none other than internet personality Brittany Renner, but we’re told it was nothing more than two friends catching up.
TMZ Sports has learned … the 7’1″ Hall of Famer and influencer showed up at the Beverly Hills Hotel together shortly after 6 PM … and they appeared to enjoy each other’s company as they shared a meal before leaving around 8 PM.
Sources tell us the two are NOT an item — they have been cool for a long time and just wanted to reconnect.
Of course, the big man has been in the dating game ever since his divorce from Shaunie was finalized in 2011 … but we’re told there was nothing romantic going on.
Renner has a child with Charlotte Hornets player PJ Washington … and has been vocal about her experiences with numerous athletes over the years.
