Shaq Throws Million Dollar Sweet 16 Party For Lucky Daughter

This had to have been one of the most epic “sweet 16” parties of all time. Former NBA superstar Shaquille O’Neal and his ex-wife Shaunie threw a wild birthday party for their teenage daughter Amirah (Mimi) this weekend in Los Angeles.

Shaq rented out the entire rooftop of the swanky Hollywood “W” hotel, and for entertainment, hired rapper YG who performed songs like “Why You Always Hatin?” and (my favorite) “Toot It And Boot It.”

The couple reportedly dropped about $1 million on the par-tay, if you include the cost of the birthday gift: a brand new Mercedes-Benz G-Class SUV, worth around $122,000.

Note to my daughter, who will also be celebrating a 16th birthday next year. We MAY get a cake from Costco and some balloons from Dollar Tree. Don’t expect a Mercedes. Or a rapper.
