‘Hey Taylor! Love you!’: Shaquille O’Neal hopes to sit next to Taylor Swift at Super Bowl LVIII as he backs his ‘boy’ Travis Kelce to lead the Kansas City Chiefs to back-to-back rings

Shaquille O’Neal has not only revealed that he hopes to sit right next to Taylor Swift at Super Bowl LVIII later this month, but he also thinks the Kansas City Chiefs will win back-to-back rings by defeating the San Francisco 49ers.

When asked his thoughts on which team would emerge victorious from this year’s big game in Las Vegas, the former L.A. Lakers star admitted that he will be rooting for ‘his boy,’ and Taylor’s boyfriend, Travis Kelce.

‘And I hope I’m sitting in a suite next to Taylor Swift,’ he told TMZ Sports, as he had a message for the popstar.

‘Hey, Taylor! Love you!’

What’s more is that ‘Big Diesel’ will host his usual music festival, ‘Shaq’s Fun House,’ at XS Nightclub, which is part of the luxury resort and casino, Wynn Las Vegas, two days before Super Sunday on February 9.

Shaq is expecting a lot of people to show up to his party, as 94 percent of tickets have been sold out with just a week to go before the Chiefs and 49ers face off at Allegiant Stadium.

Taylor has been warned by the mom of 49ers star Christian McCaffery that she is ‘dead’ to her and the remainder of San Francisco’s fan base, as she will rival model and former Miss USA, Olivia Culpo, for a spot in the limelight at this year’s big game.

Taylor’s dad, Scott, was seen arriving in L.A. on Friday – two days before Sunday’s Grammy Awards ceremony at Crpyo.com Arena – home of the Lakers, where Shaq used to play from 1996 to 2004.
