NBA star Shaquille O’Neal details his time on and off the court in a new memoir, “Shaq Uncut: My Story,” which hit shelves Tuesday.

The memoir touches on his marriage to Shaunie Nelson, which ended in 2009 amid cheating allegations. Shaq admits that while he did stray from the marriage, he never did it “disrespectfully”:

“At one time my ex-wife Shaunie and I were happy, but I admit it–I was a guy. I was a guy with too many options. Choosing to be with some of those women, well, that’s on me. In my mind, I never did it disrespectfully, but obviously I shouldn’t have done it all.”
