Here’s What Shaquille O’Neal’s Mom Said About Meeting Shaunie Henderson

On Monday, June 24, an interview with Lucille and Steph Curry’s mother, Sonya, was published via YouTube. The mothers appeared as guests on ‘Sway In The Morning.’

About 30 minutes into the interview, the show’s host, Sway Calloway, asked Lucille what it was like meeting Henderson for the first time. Additionally, Calloway appeared curious about how the mothers adopted their sons having a new, important woman in their lives.

“Well, before then, I had already gotten to the place where my place is secure. I don’t care who he marry or who he gets with; I know my place, and I’m secure in it,” Lucille explained. “But it’s hard to see them go into a relationship, and somehow you may feel, maybe that might not be the right relationship.”

However, Lucille explained that as a parent, you have to “step back and let it happen.”

“And I tell a lot of the mothers, we’re going to remain their mothers as long as they live. We are not their girlfriends, so I’m safe in my place,” Lucille concluded.

At that point, Sonya stepped in to add that she prays for her children’s significant others daily. The mother shared that she even looks at her children’s husbands and wives like her own children.

Social media users reacted to Shaquille O’Neal’s mom and Sonya’s responses in The Shade Room’s comment section. Many shared mixed reactions.

Instagram user @kaylahjoseph wrote, If you have ever dated someone with a mom like this, you know EXACTLY why everything she’s saying is a problem. ‘I know my place is secure’ ……lady plz”

While Instagram user @traemartinezz added, For the people in the back: this Basically means ‘you gotta let your kids live and learn. Even when you don’t feel like that’s the best position for them.’”

Instagram user @_niambi19 wrote, I LOVED Curry’s Mom Response 🥹🤍🤍🤍 So Mature and Classy Period”

While Instagram user @maryam_adebisi added, “‘Safe and secure in my place’ is crazy. Why do some mothers feel like it’s a competition when their son brings in a woman. It’s so weird 😒”

Instagram user @ivorymooredesign wrote, A mom who knows her value and letting her son find his own way. ❤️”

While Instagram user @__shortstaxx__ added, Her starting off saying having a secure place is a red flag 🚩lady plz”

Instagram user @sham_pooh wrote, Huh? That was bizarre. I’m secure in my place. Moving forward…Very beautiful from Curry’s Mom! A praying Mother for all involved ❤️🙏🏾”

While Instagram user @uheartdreeya added, But, YOUR SON already said he was the problem. Mom, could’ve stayed in her place. No one needed to know this.”

Instagram user @deemarie418 wrote,I’m convinced a lot of you failed comprehension in school. Y’all mad at his mother for what exactly?! She said she knew her place and that’s where she stayed in a mother’s place… Yall are literally taking her words out of context. Her saying she’s safe and secure in her place as his mother is why she didn’t over step as a mother like so many moms do.”

While Instagram user @awildsoul_ added, Love Momma Curry’s response! All you can do is pray for your kids and advise them the best way you know how. The rest is up to them!”

Instagram user @sharismyth wrote,I really wish people would let shaunie go and be married and happy.”

The Former Couple Recently Made Headlines

As The Shade Room previously reported, Shaq and Shaunie Henderson’s former marriage has seemingly been a hot topic since May. At the time, Henderson released her latest novel, ‘Undefeated: Changing the Rules and Winning On My Own Terms.’

In the book, Henderson — who is now married to Pastor Keion Henderson — wrote about being unsure if she was “ever really in love” with Shaq.

“Looking back, I don’t know that I was ever really in love with the man, but I was in love with the idea of being married to the man I had a family with,” Henderson wrote.

Shortly after, Shaq took to social media to convey his understanding of his ex-wife’s sentiments. To note, in 2022, the former NBA baller admitted that he didn’t do a good job of “protecting” his union with Henderson, per The Shade Room.

However, although Shaq was understanding of his ex-wife’s words, social media users were largely puzzled, per The Shade Room. At the time, one Instagram user @bfg_funny reacted to Henderson’s revelation with, So just a few kids with a man you didn’t love… that’s crazy.”

On May 10, Henderson clarified her comments about her former marriage in an exclusive interview with PEOPLE. She explained that the book is her “truth,” and social media users took her words “out of context.”

“My book is my truth… There was no context to just that one quote that I said, and I think that, sadly, people are taking my words out of context,” Henderson explained. “…When you love somebody, you love somebody, but to be in love with somebody is a different feeling, and I will be honest, I didn’t realize that until I found the love of my life right now…”

At this time, Henderson has not publicly reacted to her former mother-in-law’s comments.
