Shaunie O'Neal, estranged wife of Shaquille O'Neal, isn't taking any chances after Shaq's latest threats and has contacted her legal team.

Shaq is being accused of trying to pry information from their children about Shaunie's new boyfriend.  The kids are feeling intimidated and are reportedly afraid of their father.  The couple have four children ranging from age 3 to 10, and she has a 12-year-old son from a previous relationship.

The NBA great allegedly told his 6-year-old son to relay a message to the boyfriend:  "Shaq is going to kill you."  The child was afraid and said that his father screamed at him, "Say it now!  My daddy is going to kill you!"

Shaunie's lawyers sent a letter to Shaquille's legal team asking that he put a stop to any and all "inappropriate discussions."  According the the lawyer, this recent behavior has put the basketball legend in violation of the non-disparagement provision of the divorce agreement.
