Athletes & Hoes: Shaq Still Can’t Make That Lawsuit From His Ex-Sidepiece Go Away

- By Bossip Staff

Let this be a lesson to all you dirty dogs out there: every sidepiece has the potential to complicate your life beyond your control.

Shaq has had a year where he’s come out of most of his scandals looking like a hero or comedian. But he still can’t shake his “ex” Vanessa Lopez.

Shaquille suffered another legal setback in a lawsuit that was filed against the NBA star by his alleged former mistress, Vanessa Lopez, is exclusively reporting.

As previously reported, Lopez filed the lawsuit against O’Neal for assault, intentional infliction of emotional distress, and other claims.

Lopez says Shaq started harassing her shortly after she told him she thought she was pregnant. Shaq initially accused her of sleeping with someone else, then when she broke off their relationship, she claims the threats began.

Shaq tried to get the lawsuit dismissed, but was denied. The court docs obtained exclusively by state, “Defendant’s motion to dismiss count 1 for assault is denied, defendant’s motion to dismiss count II for intentional infliction of emotional distress is denied.”

The judge did dismiss the invasion of privacy element of the lawsuit.

In the suit, Lopez claims a number of scary incidents including a threatening text that Shaq allegedly sent to a friend of his saying, “dis is da numba shut dat [beyotch] up!”

Lopez says the friend responded with a text saying, “consider it done famo.” The friend then jumped on a plane to Orlando, Florida, and allegedly texted Lopez before calling her on her cell, sounding “menacing and sinister.”

Oh wow. Somewhere, Shaunie is laughing so hard at Shaq’s recklessness.
