It seems these days Â Shaquille Oâ€™Neal is trying to keep his private Â life under legal raps. The pro-baller just obtained a protective order against ex-mistress Vanessa Lopez.Â For those not in the know, Lopez filed a lawsuit against Oâ€™Neal that dates back to 2010.
In January, Lopez put in a request to add punitive damages to her harassment lawsuit against Oâ€™Neal. She accused Shaq of racketeering, invasion of privacy and intentional inflection of emotional distress. Â Now a judge in the case stated, â€śDefendantâ€™s motion for protective order is hereby granted. The parties are prohibited from disclosing the deposition transcripts in this matter, until further hearing an order of this court.â€ť
A source very close to the case says, â€śVanessaâ€™s deposition is explosive.â€ť Many believe that Â is one of the reasons why Oâ€™Nealâ€™s legal team got the protective order.
â€śVanessa is going to stand up for herself and her rights. She is not scared. Vanessa wants the truth to come out,â€ť the source continued. â€śHer deposition reveals very intimate disturbing things Shaq like to do. The world would be shocked!â€ť
