Shaquille O'Neal

Wins Huge Victory

In Sex Tape Case

8/9/2011 10:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Shaquille O Neal Sextape
Shaquille O'Neal
indirectly won an enormous victory today ... after a judge threw out a case against 7 gang members who were accused of kidnapping a man in order to retrieve a sex tape of Shaq.

Robert Ross -- the alleged victim -- claimed he had a sex tape showing Shaq with multiple women at different times while he was still married to Shaunie O'Neal.

Ross claimed 7 gang members kidnapped him at the direction of Shaq and tried to beat him into submission so he would cough up the video.

Today in court -- in the middle of the preliminary hearing -- the D.A. shocked the courtroom, stating they no longer had confidence in Ross based on his testimony and his actions outside of court.

Lawyers for the 7 defendants asked the judge to immediately dismiss the case -- which is exactly what the judge did.

As for why the D.A. lost confidence in Ross, for starters, during his testimony in the prelim, he admitted he had lied about having a sex tape -- something Shaq had denied all along.

First Off...this is an extortion attempt if the tape existed or didnt exist. Second, regardless if Ross was telling the truth or not, this was a private matter between Shaunie and Shaq regarding their marriage.

Like I said the guy was lying his ass off and making up different stories. So Shaq had a sex tape but the guy also said he did never had the tape. So no evidence no charge no case. Leave this man alone. Some you men on this board never cheated once in your life. Most Men Cheat and when get caught in lies the lost the best thing the ever had.
