In case you missed it, over the weekend 58-year-old Inside The NBA co-host Kenny Smith was spotted on Miami Beach with Brazilian model Aline Bernardes.

The photos and video, published by TMZ, showed the semi-recently divorced Kenny Smith shirtless on the beach, chilling in some red swim trunks with the bikini clad 34-year-old Bernardes.

Smith and his ex-wife, English model Gwendolyn Osborne, finalized their divorce in 2021 after 15 years together.

It’s unclear if the two are dating — they didn’t show any PDA throughout their beach visit, but Bernades DID put him on Instagram for her 207,000 followers to see … posting a video rocking out to music.

“Teaching gringo friends to enjoy Péricles,” Bernardes captioned the clip … which showed the ex-NBAer dancing along to the Brazilian singer.

Apparently, the boys on TNT’s Inside The NBA show know more than we do about the situation, and they had a little fun at Kenny Smith’s expense during Sunday’s broadcast.

“Any photos you guys want to share from the weekend?” Ernie Johnson asked the group.

“I got one of Kenny,” Barkley replied, causing Shaq to break down in laughter.

“I was at the Formula 1,” Smith interjected. “Shaq and I were hanging out a lot together. That’s my man right there!”

Shaq then began shaking his head while looking at the camera with a huge grin on his face.

“You gonna show TMZ?” Barkley then asked.

“I’m gonna do you big a favor Kenny,” Johnson jumped in. “I’m gonna do you a big favor.”

“TMZ ain’t never wrong,” Charles interrupted before Ernie said, “I’m gonna do you a big favor. We’re going to go to CarMax One-on-One.”

At another point in the show, Shaq had the internet cracking up again when he became a meme of a meme after Suns star Devin Booker led Phoenix to a Game 4 win over the Denver Nuggets.
