Lawsuit: Man Sues Shaq Over Alleged Kidnapping

by Ryne Nelson

Shaq is facing wild allegations in the L.A. civil court in which convicted felon Robert Ross alleges that the Big Aristotle ordered him to kill a woman that Shaq had impregnated, a gang member, and a renowned record producer.

TMZ has released the complaint:

Shaq’s former pal Robert Ross — an ex-gang member — is suing O’Neal for allegedly masterminding a plot to have him kidnapped by other gang members back in 2008.

In the documents, filed today in L.A. County Superior Court, Ross claims O’Neal organized and funded a series of murders and brutal attacks on people who did him wrong.

The L.A. Times quotes Shaq’s attorney, who called the the accusations “outlandish” and “pure fiction” in a statement.

Criminal charges have not been filed yet, and TNT surely looked into some background before signing him to a multi-year deal.

But that doesn’t take away from the severity of these allegations. Depending on whether the lawsuit passes summary judgment or not, the case could be thrown out quickly or Shaq may have to pay a settlement.

    “or Shaq may have to pay a settlement”, seems that if you have millions of dollars, you get to do whatever you want in this country..(if, of course he did what is said)

    Now it all makes sense, Shaq pretending to want to be a “Sheriff”, so he can shake down drug dealers, murders, recruit them on his side, and have them knocking off anyone who disrespects him. Pure genius Shaq, pure genius.

    @Marc It’s the other way around. You can accuse someone of anything as long as he has money. The public pressure makes them pay regardless of there conviction. That’s why people do things like that.

    Shaq=Ray Carruth? Who was the record exec? The guy who funded Fu Shnickens or Suge Knight?

  • Marc

    @ballerphil, it’s a good point and I agree with you entirely, but once he pays, nobody will ever know the truth…where there’s smoke, there’s fire sometimes…
