It seems these days  Shaquille O’Neal is trying to keep his private  life under legal raps. The pro-baller just obtained a protective order against ex-mistress Vanessa Lopez.  For those not in the know, Lopez filed a lawsuit against O’Neal that dates back to 2010.

In January, Lopez put in a request to add punitive damages to her harassment lawsuit against O’Neal. She accused Shaq of racketeering, invasion of privacy and intentional inflection of emotional distress.  Now a judge in the case stated, “Defendant’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.”

A source very close to the case says, “Vanessa’s deposition is explosive.” Many believe that  is one of the reasons why O’Neal’s legal team got the protective order.

“Vanessa is going to stand up for herself and her rights. She is not scared. Vanessa wants the truth to come out,” the source continued. “Her deposition reveals very intimate disturbing things Shaq like to do. The world would be shocked!”

Will Shaunie O’Neal Catch A Lawsuit?

Published by Runteldat on Friday, October 1, 2010 at 11:50 am.

Shaunie O’Neal may be facing a potential legal problem if one of her ex-husband’s mistresses goes forward with plans for a tell-all book.

If you recall, it was reported that Shaunie approached Vanessa Lopez and was accused of trying “to convince Vanessa to go public about her affair with Shaq because that way Shaunie could accuse Shaq of adultery, which would nullify the pre-nup and give her more money in the divorce.”

It seems Vanessa ended up telling Shaq so that plan never came to fruition.

And now Radar Online says if Vanessa discusses this in a tell-all book, Shaunie may be the one facing trouble.

They report:

The plan ultimately backfired however. Lopez called Shaq and informed him of Shaunie’s plan and was advised by his divorce attorney not to meet at the last minute.

According to the insider, Shaunie is now facing a new problem: the man she confided in is now writing a tell-all book.

Shaunie signed a confidentiality agreement when she married Shaq,” the source said. “But then she went and told Shawn Darling personal things-including asking him to contact Vanessa Lopez and convince her to meet.

Now Shawn is threatening to expose Shaunie in the book and she’s scared, not only because she’ll be named, but because now Shaq could turn around and sue her for breach of contract.”

How Shaunie O’Neal Got A Bigger Divorce Settlement

Published by Runteldat on Tuesday, April 6, 2010 at 11:50 am.


When Shaunie O’Neal married Shaquille O’Neal she signed a prenuptial agreement. That means if Shaunie was going to get a bigger paycheck out of the basketball legend she was going to need some concrete proof of infidelity.

So she hired a private investigator to dig up dirt on her hubby. That’s when Shaunie found out about Shaq’s multi-year relationship with Vanessa Lopez.

Radar Online reports:

Shaq has a prenuptial agreement with his wife and she needed information that he cheated to use as leverage for a better financial settlement, the source said.

And Shaunie got the leverage. In fact, after Shaunie discovered her husband’s long-running affair with Lopez and she approached Lopez – but not to rip into her, instead Shaunie wanted the affair made public!

“Shaunie tried to convince Vanessa to go public about the affair before Vanessa did go public,” the source told exclusively. “And she wanted Vanessa to go to the police too, based on allegations she heard about Shaq harassing her.

“What she discovered about Shaq and Vanessa, gave Shaunie the ammunition she needed to file for divorce and try to get the money she wants.”

Vanessa didn’t come forward when Shaunie asked her to, but Shaunie’s request set in motion the events that led Vanessa to publicly reveal her affair with the NBA star.

Lopez is currently being represented by Gloria Allred, a woman who would sue a man for stubbing her client’s toe so long as he were a celebrity.

So now you have Shanuie with all of the dirt she needed to get more from Shaq, and now Vanessa Lopez might have proof that might help her get money out of the big man in her harassment suit.

I suppose there aren’t any hard feelings. Just the other day Shaq tweeted something awfully nice about his ex-wife to which she replied with, “I love you.”

All’s well that ends well.
