Yes you heard right, Shaq is being sued for aledgedly not fullfilling his contract obligations with a collectables and merchandising company called "dream". I saw this on about a 15 minute segment on my local news station:
He was said to have agreed to sign thousands of collectables and merchandizing products but it turned out he never realy did. According to the company pending the law suite against Shaquille O'Neil, " The time he (Shaq) did put aside for signing the stuff, was limited and rushed. He would rush through the signing prosess, making his signatures look sloppy and unauthentic. But the masses of the products and collectables he promised to sign, were never signed. So the obligations and agreements he was bound to by the terms of the contract, were never fullfilled.". The company also stated Shaq wanted them to provide transpertation for him in the form of a private jet that would add up to $25 million in expences and cost. The origanal agreement in the contract was for the company to provide him with 1st class tickets for transpertaion, not a private jet.
The Judge in this case has agreed to to have the case heard, but moved to a higher court.
I dont know what to think about this case other than i dont see why it would be such a problem to sit through and sign collectables and merchandise so millions of buyers can be happy. I also dont see why he thinks he needs a private jet for transpertation, mabie he is afraid of terrorism?
On a side note, they showed some recent footage of Shaq in the gym and working out somewhere in Orlando, and man he must have already dropped 25 pounds. He was looking actualy very lean and cutt, probably the best shape he's been in for atleast 3 years. He looked rested, refreshed, and almost unrecognizably learner compared to 6 months ago.
Quoting Shaq on one of his spontainious freestyles durring practices:
"I stay paid niggaaa, I live laid niggaaa, I've been rappen ever since the third grade niggaaa".
