Wife: Shaq Tried Using Son for Death Threats

4/18/2010 10:15 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Shaquille O'Neal's estranged wife claims the basketball star recently ordered their son to deliver death threats to her new boyfriend ... this according to documents obtained by TMZ.

Wife: Shaq Tried Using Son for Death Threats
Shaunie O'Neal's lawyers just fired off a letter to Shaq's people, claiming the bball star "interrogated" the couple's children to tell him everything they knew about her new man ... "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 at the kid and said, "Say it now! My daddy is going to kill you!"

Shaunie's lawyers are demanding Shaq halt "further inappropriate discussions" with their children -- which is an alleged violation of the non-disparagement provision of their divorce judgment.

TMZ asked Shaq's attorney for a comment, but he hasn't gotten back to us.

Shaq was the worst husband on the planet= a serial cheater from day one over and over and poor Shaunie had to put up with his constant indiscretions. So now he wants to use his children to intimidate her new boyfriends - so now he has proven he is a bad father too. What a complete jerk off Shaunie, I hope you got at least 1/2 his fortune and I hope you find a good man that treats you and the kids how they should be treated. Shaq go back to your brainless, siliconed bimbos at the strip clubs where you belong. Your bound to find some big bossomed brainless broad to tell you how wonderful you think you are all the while counting your dollar bills in her g string. Shaunie was too good for you and out of your league from the start. Serves YOU right she is dating someone better - its called KARMA lol

@ no. 5 - Pete, you're an idiot. So you don't believe this for one second because he was nice to your daughter when she had her appendix out. I've never heard anything so dumb. Don't you know that's how these psychos operate? - having everyone believe that they're such nice guys - that's all part of the act. So after all the women he's slept with and 'shacked up', he has the nerve to get mad because she wants to have a boyfriend. Truth be told, she's no angel either, otherwise she would never have gotten with him in the first place. I've always believed that this guy was insane.

I seriously hope this is not true. This kind of behaviour shouldn't be tolerated by the courts (or anyone else) If he did do this, he should only have supervised visits in the future. Can't use your kids to pass on threats.

You people are all retards for believing everything you see immediately on TMZ. You don't know shaq's side of the story, and until you do, stop assuming. Assumptions are the mother of all ****ups. Remember that.

Sorry there are lot of human beings I would not want looking for me to do harm and Shaq would be in the top twenty at least. Too many chicybooms out there to hit and not worry about a giant after your ass.

WOW



some seriously naive folks on here.



Shaq would be in my TOP TEN to hurt a woman. Anyone can be at hospitals for charity, etc...it is part of the scam.




duh



shaq is a filthy nasty wh*re like Jesse, Tiger, it's all the same.



Move on Shauni, you put up with enough.



LET HER GO, YOU OVERGROWN MONKEY.



REJECTION IS PART OF LIFE.



TOUGHEN UP BIG BOY

Pete, you're very naive if you think that a person's public persona is the same as their private persona. Bing Crosby was a great guy too, but he beat the cr*p out of his kids behind closed doors.
I've no idea if this story is true or not, but you shouldn't base your convictions about this man on one visit to your sick child.

I wish using kids as weapons in a divorce and after was a felony. Kids don't ask for this crap, they just want to live their lives and love both parents.
