Haute Event: Shaquille O’Neal Celebrates His 40th Birthday at Lavo

Shaquille O'Neal celebrates his birthday at Lavo.

Shaquille O’Neal celebrated his 40th birthday at Lavo at the Palazzo on Saturday night. The four-time NBA Champion and 12 time All-Star arrived on the red carpet to a throng of fans before heading in to dine with a large group of friends.

After ordering Kobe meatballs, penne ala vodka, Strip steaks and more, Shaq made his way to the nightclub. Once upstairs he wasted no time getting the party started, jumping into the booth with DJ Obi One and grabbing the mic.

The packed crowd cheered and pulled out their camera phones to capture the excitement. Obi One treated club goers to a medley of songs with Shaq shouting out to the club at all times. He was surprised by a basketball birthday cake from Gimme Some Sugar that he offered up to the crowd, thanking them for coming out to celebrate.
