Shaq on Vanessa Lopez: Shut Dat B!tch Up!

by at . Comments

Vanessa Lopez, the woman filing a harassment lawsuit against NBA star Shaquille O'Neal, claims the Diesel sent a menacing text message to a friend.

The quote: "Dis is da numba shut dat bitch up!"

Lopez, who claims to have been in a five-year relationship with Shaq, says it went sour after Vanessa missed her period and Shaq lashed out at her.

The Cleveland Cavaliers center allegedly reacted angrily, accusing her of sleeping with another guy, prompting Lopez to end the relationship, she says.

But then Shaq's family got involved.

Vanessa Lopez is playing a little legal hack-a-Shaq.

Fearing for her safety, Vanessa Lopez claims Shaq's 6'6" and 6'8" sisters made verbal and physical threats against her. Besides his large, powerful, wealthy family, Lopez feared Shaq's law enforcement connections and  right to bear arms.

She also says the big fella hacked into her voice mail and text messages, using sophisticated software, and made harassing phone calls to her.

Another woman, Dominica Westling, has reportedly been romantically linked to O'Neal, who is in the process of divorcing wife Shaunie, as well.

Vanessa Lopez is no saint herself, having had shady past run-ins with three other NBA "boyfriends" - Kenyon Martin, Delonte West and JJ Redick.

All three of those relationships ended contentiously. She doesn't strike us as a serial money- and fame-grubbing NBA groupie by any means.
