We’re told Shaq gave Hailey a bunch of tips on how to deal with fame … advising her to keep a smart team around because folks will come out of the woodwork to try and take advantage of her.

Our sources say the conversation included Hailey showing Shaq some of the hateful comments she’s getting in response to her viral video … with Shaq telling her to pay the haters no mind because none of them actually know her.

As we reported … Shaq and Hailey partied at Jon Bon Jovi‘s new joint in Music City the night after she was pulled onstage at Zach Bryan‘s show in Nashville.

After Shaq saw Hailey with Zach, our sources say he told his team he wanted them to get in touch with her so she could make an appearance at his DJ gig at Bon Jovi’s place … and that’s how the meeting went down.
