NBA All-Star Shaquille O’Neal had a five-year affair with model Vanessa Lopez, who at one point believed she was pregnant, which allegedly prompted Shaquille to begin harassing her.
A friend of Vanessa’s said that O’Neal started harassing Lopez in September 2009.
“It went to the extremes of the police getting involved and a report being filed,” the insider stated.
Now Lopez has hired high-profile attorney Gloria Allred to represent her in the harassment case against Shaqille.
“I can confirm I’m representing Vanessa Lopez,” Allred revealed.
At the time of the affair, Shaq had been married to Shaunie, but she has filed for legal separation with the intent to divorce O’Neal.
