Let’s just get this out of the way.

Stevie Wonder is blind. 

The legendary musician was born prematurely in 1950, and doctors believe he lost his sight after he was given too much oxygen in his incubator, according to CNN.

The conspiracy theory that he can actually see, however, has captivated people for decades — including several notable celebrities.

Add Shaquille O’Neal to that list.

O’Neal shared a hilarious story Thursday night on TNT about an interaction he had with Wonder in an apartment building in Los Angeles — one that completely blew him away.

“We lived in a building on Wilshire [Boulevard],” O’Neal said. “So you park your car under, the valet is down there. I’m already in the building, I’m coming through the lobby. The [elevator] door opens. It’s Stevie Wonder. He comes in, says, ‘What’s up, Shaq?’ [He] presses the button, gets off on the floor by himself and goes to his room. 

“I went and called every person I knew and told the story.”

OK, maybe we do need to revisit this conspiracy theory after all.
