Shaunie O'Neal claims Shaq is full of BS when he says he was always opposed to doing a reality show with their kids ... and says she has it in black and white ... he's lying.
Shaunie filed unsigned contracts and correspondence with the court -- obtained by TMZ -- in which it's clear ... Shaq was negotiating to become a part of the reality show. Shaq was negotiating not only his participation in the show, but his 4 kids as well.
Shaunie submitted a sworn declaration from the head producer, who claims Shaq gave him the green light to do the show, only to withdraw permission after saying the show is "not a good look for me."
But Shaq tells a very different story. Sources connected with him tell TMZ ... he initially was open to doing the show until he learned one of his kids had a serious learning problem in school. He also wanted creative control to protect his kids and that was denied. Shaunie claims Shaq was offered creative control.
