Shaquille O’Neal, the living NBA legend, has taken his on-court domination to the world of entrepreneurship. With a massive net worth of $500 million, Shaq not only profits from his business ideas but also gives back to society, being the bearer of love and unity.
Recently Shaquille O’Neal has added another fan to his never-ending legion of followers but for a very different reason. The fan is question is none other than Eagles center Jason Kelce’s wife Kylie.
Kylie Kelce wants Shaquille O’Neal Valentine’s day themed pizza
Kylie Kelce, the internet personality and Kansas City Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce’s sister-in-law is in full support of Shaquille O’Neal’s “Papa John’s.” Kylie posted a video on Instagram saying that she thinks Papa John’s pizza is the best gift for her this Valentine’s Day which was shared by the brand ambassador, Shaq.
In the video, she shared that her spouse, the Eagles center Jason Kelce, got her flowers and teddy bear on their first Valentine’s Day but this year she will tell her husband about her preference for the heart-shaped pizza from the famous pizza chain.
The couple met on Tinder years ago and now are happily married with three kids. Kylie Kelce said she had no idea who Kelce was since none of his pictures had photos from the Eagles.
“Well, his profile at the time was something to the effect of: I want to have deep meaningful conversations and talk about getting married and having kids or something like that,” she said. Despite not having the greatest of starts after their first date went wrong with Jason getting tipsy, the couple has smoothly transitioned into a loving relationship since tying the knot in 2018.
Shaquille O’Neal owns how many Papa John’s?
Shaq owns 9 franchise units of Papa John’s pie. Not only that, but he also takes care of the company’s promotion being a brand ambassador and the company’s board of directors since 2019.
According to reports, the initial payment for the endorsement was $4.125 million over three years. As per the last update, the 4-time NBA Champion is paid around $5.63 million along with a condition to donate $1 to the Papa John’s Foundation whenever a pizza is sold.
He became a part of the branding team after the previous chairman was criticized for his racist language. The 51-year-old promoted the pizza chain on every social media platform.
The Diesel also owns 17 Auntie Anne’s Pretzels restaurants and bought 155 Five Guys restaurants although he later sold them. These investments among several others have surely made the NBA Hall-of-Famer prosperous but he also believes in giving back to society and hence, a large amount of donations is made from his fast-food franchises.
