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.

I Feel like SHAQ..she Betrayed their marriage,
and has also used the children in her hurtful plots.
As a Spiritual person,Shaq needs to "Let Go"..get back to Himself and continue to be the Good Black Man he Truly is.

Shaunie's show is "weak and repulsive"..it's filled with shallow
women similar her. They all appear desperate and useless, It's Sad...

#5, Pete< Just because Shaq visited your sick kid at the hospital doesn't mean he's a saint. The man was a serial cheater. By the way Tiger Woods, OJ Simpson, Ben Rothlisberger (msp), and most athletes visit kids at the hospital. Maybe Shaq did visit your kid but that doesn't mena he didn't treat Shaunie like crap. Don't get it twisted
