Shaquille O'Neal's estranged wife Shaunie has made some serious allegations against him before, but nothing like death threats ... coming from their son.
That's right. In court papers, Shaunie claims the NBA star, who she is divorcing, recently ordered their son to deliver death threats to her new boyfriend.
Lawyers for Shaunie O'Neal allege that jealous, deranged Shaq "interrogated" the couple's children to tell him everything they knew about her new man.
This "to the point that they felt intimidated and scared of him."
Shaunie also claims Shaq told their 6-year-old son to tell her boyfriend that Shaq "is going to kill him," and that Shaq even screamed orders at the kid:
"Say it now! My daddy is going to kill you!"
Shaq and Shaunie O'Neal pre-mistresses and pre-death threats.
Pretty lame if this is true, Shaq. Nothing like sending a six-year-old to deliver a threat when you cheated on her... and are seven feet tall and weigh over three bills.
Shaunie's lawyers demand Shaq halt "inappropriate discussions" with their kids, an alleged violation of the non-disparagement provision of their divorce judgment.
To that end, Shaq is threatening VH1 with a lawsuit if its show Basketball Wives, which features Shaunie, makes any additional references to the big man on the air.
The Diesel is accused of affairs with Vanessa Lopez, Dominica Westling, Laura Govan and who knows who else during their marriage. Lopez is suing him as well.
Shaunie is looking to secure a $h!tload of money.
