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.

Everyone thinks Shaq is so cool. I never did. I was glad to see him leave LA. Good riddance. He's a half season playing, overpaid, high maintenance, primadonna. Shaq is about Shaq, always has been . . . Period!

I really feel for Shaq. He's the one whose earned all the money and his skank wife is already dating and spending his money. No wonder Shaq is pissed thats why he should have got a pre nup. Money hungry hos don't deserve a damn thing if they didn't earn it. I thought this was the era of men and women being treated as equals and earning their own money. Yea right what a crock!!!! You women really are pathetic.

Well, that is what he gets for hooking up with some groupie, who got pregnant. That is what happens when you marry for looks and not love. When will all of these celebrities learn? WOW! We are teaching our daughters to be reality stars, groupies, anything to get rich quick. I don't feel sorry for her or him.

Does anyone else find the timing for these charges suspect? Or is it a coincidence that her show (Basketball Wives) comes on the same day as the charges come out? For everyone who is stoning Shaq, take a second look at his partner in crime....Shaunie. Shaq's
indiscretions are well do***ented, but Shaunie has not only been given a pass but some are nominating her for SAINTHOOD! Shaunie left her first husband Daven Baptiste for Shaq, was pregnant with Shaq's child while still married to Daven, and had 3 children by Shaq before they married in 2002. So, Ms Shaunie knows a thing or 2 about infidelity. I say if you call Shaq out, call out Shaunie too. Just saying........

No need for Shaunie to play the victim here. Let's go back, Shaunie was MARRIED when her and Shaq hooked up. Her former husband and Shaq were business associates...
