Basketball legend Shaquille O’Neal had one of the most remarkable careers in the NBA. Earlier this week, the NBA legend was recently spotted with a mystery girl on a date. A date night over chicken satay had NBA great Shaquille O’Neal feeling generous as he paid off the entire tab of the restaurant. Now, the identity of the mystery woman has finally been revealed.

According to Page Six, the woman with Shaq was Kin Essentials CEO Dr. Jaime Johnston. Sources told the outlet that O’Neal referred to her as his “date” when they were ordering up chicken satays and martinis at Jue Lan Club last week. However, Johnston insisted, “it was not a date.”

Johnston stated that, “It was a business meeting, and lastly, I don’t engage in gossip stories,” She also posted a pic of herself at the restaurant on Instagram, writing, “his favorite view,” with a heart emoji. Although, she didn’t mention O’Neal in the social media post.

After PageSix reached out about the non-date, they mysteriously received several cheeky text messages from a random number with photos of Shaq posing with various women over the years. The images included a ’90s throwback pic of him and supermodel Cindy Crawford. The unknown texter with an Alabama area code wrote, “More mystery dates for you to write articles about, silly man,”

Sources, who spotted Shaq and Johnston at the restaurant revealed that “they came by themselves, and they left by themselves,” but not before he secretly paid the bill for all the other patrons in the restaurant. The source shared, “It was 40 tables and [the bill] was in excess of $25,000. He was in a great mood and was taking pictures with everyone.” The source further said Johnston “was more lowkey. She didn’t really want to be noticed,” Stay tuned to Thirsty for further updates. You can check out a picture of Johnston below.
