Brew News: Shaq Pays For Shaniya Davis' Funeral

Shaquille O'Neal is a good dude.  Sure, he may get caught up in some groupie-infidelity-is he or isn't he getting a divorce rumors from time to time, but that man's heart is full of gold.

Shaq footed the bill for the funeral of little Shaniya Davis.  She's the precious little 5 year old North Carolina girl who was kidnapped, raped, murdered and left on the side of the highway like roadkill after being sold into sex slavery, allegedly by her mother.

Shaq said he "wanted her to have a funeral that would be as beautiful as she was."  He was touched by the girl's story after learning of it on HLN's "Nancy Grace."  Shaq is no stranger to good deeds.  He's also a law enforcement volunteer in the off-season and much of his work has been with domestic violence and child abuse cases.

It's estimated the funeral cost about $4,500.   Shaniya's father had set up a trust fund to help raise money to pay for it but now, that money will go to other charities working to help abused and neglected children.
