Shaq Admits to Spending $1000 Every Week on Apps

Shaquille_O'NealLarger than life, basketball hero,Shaquille O’Neal admits,”When I’m not working, I spend all my money on apps.” As you can imagine, Shaq’s app spending is much larger than the average person. The self-professed geek told The Wall Street Journal at SXSW that, “Honestly, I probably spend $1,000 on apps a week.”

Shaq said he spent real money. Last week, he bought about 20 deer hunter games so he can hunt deer on his phone. He also uses social media. When tweeting he said that, “60% is to make you laugh, because laughing relieves stress,” 30% to inspire you…  and the last 10% is to sell you stuff. Shaq has 8.16 million followers on Twitter.
