Shaquille O'Neal retired from the NBA this month. Considering the superstar's charisma and love of attention, anyone who has followed his career can't help but wonder: What will he do next?

Now, however, we find ourselves asking: What the heck did he do before? Specifically, on the night of February 11, 2008?

TMZ has broken what could be a mammoth story, detailing the arrest of seven gang members who are accused of kidnapping a man named Robert Ross on that date.

Law enforcement officials report that Ladell Rowles - a member of the Main Street Mafia Crip and a friend of O'Neal's - led the group, drawing guns on Ross outside a convenience store, ordering him to drive them to Rowles' house and then pistol whipping him until he turned over a sex tape of Shaquille and a mistress, allegedly filmed when O'Neal was married.

Shaquille O'Neal is retiring from basketball.

After 19 years in the NBA, the Diesel made the announcement on a video he posted through his Twitter page. The ginormous center said the following:

"We did it. Nineteen years baby. I want to thank you very much, that's why I'm telling you first, I'm about to retire. Thank you, talk to you soon."

Shaq won three titles with the Lakers and another with the Heat. He began his career with the Magic and also played with the Cavs, Suns and Celtics.

His sense of humor and personality have become as gregarious as O'Neal's physical presence, earning him legions of fans on Twitter and beyond.

O'Neal retires with the highest field goal percentage all-time, the seventh-most points, a lot of missed free throws and one computer hacking scandal.

Shaquille O'Neal's estranged wife, Shaunie O'Neal, tried to meet with his mistress, Vanessa Lopez, to convince her to go public with her affair with the Diesel.

That way, she could derail their prenup, according to a report.

Shawn Darling, the man suing Shaq for hacking his computer, is writing a tell-all book in which he plans to expose Shaunie's plan to score all Shaq's cash.

As a result, "Shaunie is freaking out," a source told Radar Online. "She'll probably be deposed in his case and does not want this information to come out."

According to the source, when Shaunie discovered that Shaq was having an affair with Vanessa Lopez, she devised a plan to expose Shaq as an adulterer.

"She reached out to Vanessa last October through Shawn, who was working for the family at the time," the source revealed. "Shawn called Vanessa and told her Shaunie wanted to meet her in the food court at her local mall in Orlando."

Shaunie O'Neal and Vanessa Lopez were to discuss "an incentive." Diabolical.

Shaquille O'Neal is involved in some weird ass stories.

The Big Shamrock may or may not be engaged to Hoopz, may or may not have had an affair with Vanessa Lopez, and may or may not have hacked an employee's computer and attempted to frame him by planting child porn on that piece.

Shawn Darling is suing Shaq for intentional infliction of emotional distress, invasion of privacy and civil R.I.C.O. (a racketeering charge) in Miami, Florida.

Some of Shawn's explosive allegations:

  • O'Neal conspired with active law enforcement to frame Darling for a criminal offense and destroy any evidence that Darling had against O'Neal.
  • Shaq hacked the voicemails of Darling and Vanessa Lopez, who is currently suing O'Neal, deleting Lopez's messages and changed her password.
  • O'Neal used law enforcement contacts to obtain restricted information about another mistresses, Alexis Miller, while he was legally fighting her.
  • Shaq physically disposed of a personal computer holding evidence of many transgressions while married to Shaunie O'Neal in a lake behind his home.

Darling worked for O'Neal from 2007-2009 as his personal IT guy and claims he was originally hired to work on "different O'Neal family projects."

A pair of champions might be coming together... literally!

Sources state that Nicole "Hoopz" Alexander (winner of VH1's I Love Money) and Shaquille O'Neal (four-time NBA champion) are engaged. The owner of a restaurant in Las Vegas claims he actually saw the basketball legend get down on one knee and propose to the reality star.

Nicole "Hoopz" Alexander: From the Illest Men's Magazine Ever into the arms of Shaquille O'Neal?

O'Neal divorced wife Shaunie earlier this year, who proceeded to claim he used their son to issue a death threat against her.

Alexander, meanwhile, is a reality series veteran who starred in a sex tape last year. She also appeared on Flavor of Love.

Yes, folks, this means the new Boston Celtics center might be ordering up Flavor Flav's sloppy seconds. We really hope Tiffany Pollard isn't next for him.

Take this, Westboro Baptist Church!

You can call Justin Bieber a sinner and an affront to God all you'd like, but you can't hold the young singer down!

Instead of wallowing in such absurd insults, Bieber is moving ahead with his career, looking to expand his audience by appearing on season two of Shaq Vs.

In that reality show, the NBA legend takes on a variety of celebrities in their fields of expertise, from athletics to dancing to cooking. In Justin's case, of course, this means singing, something O'Neal attempts to do below, joining in with Bieber for a duet during the latter's concert rehearsal in Phoenix.

It's a great clip:

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.
