Fishy: Shaq Sold His 3,904 Square Foot House To A Haitian Business Man For Only $10

Something (possibly) very strange is going on in Orlando, and it involves Shaquille O’Neal.

Shaq recently sold a 3,904 square foot house to Yves Paul Demesmin, a Haitian business man, for $10.

Shaq bought the house in 2012 for $235,000, and turned over the 5 bedroom, 4 bath property to Demesmin at the beginning of May, reports TMZ. Demesmin owns a tax services company in Orlando that uses the motto, “The Little Man with Good Experience.”

Shaq did not respond to requests for comment about the (again, possibly) shady transaction. What could spur this sale? What does Demesmin have on the giant basketball legend?

Of course, it’s worth noting that it’s standard practice to list FL houses at being sold at “$10 + other considerations,” for no logical reason. So that’s what happened here.
