Shaquille O’Neal, 40, is rumored to be dating Entertainment Tonight weekend cohost, Rocsi Diaz, 29. The cuddly duo were spotted together at a pre-Super Bowl party last weekend in New Orleans, LA.

The 15-time NBA All-Star, O'Neal, and the former BET 106 & Park host, Diaz, attended the private bash at the Hookah Lounge on Feb. 2. “Shaq and Rocsi were holding hands at this private party and at a private table. They looked like an odd couple, but they seemed really into each other,” a witness told the New York Post.

O’Neal broke up with his fiancée, Nicole “Hoopz” Armstrong, in August. His ex-wife is Shaunie O’Neal, who has launched a bit of a television career herself, appearing on VH1’s Basketball Wives. Diaz, who landed the ET gig opposite Nancy O'Dell in fall of 2012, briefly dated Eddie Murphy, 51, last summer.

A spokesman for Diaz said “Rocsi was there hosting and her free time was incredibly short because of her work with ET. I can confirm they [she and Shaq] are very good friends.”
