Shaquille O'Neal is being sued in Dade County, Florida, by a former employee of his, Shawn Darling.

This type of thing (people suing rich, famous people) happens every single day. But the details of Shaq's lawsuit aren't your average, every day civil complaint from an ex-employee.

Radar Online reports that Darling is suing Shaq for some pretty heavy stuff: computer hacking and destruction of evidence. (A PDF of the public document is here.)

Darling claims that he worked for O'Neal -- and O'Neal's wife, Shaunie, as well as his "associates" and children as well -- from late 2007 until November 2009, and that during that time, Shaq had him "wipe" Shaq's computers and delete the information in his "AOL" account in relation to other legal issues.

Darling also claims that Shaq conspired with former members of law enforcement to help plant child pornography on Darling's computer, that Shaq tried to break into Darling's voicemail account, that Shaq destroyed evidence by throwing a personal computer into a lake and that there's proof of many extramarital affairs on various forms of electronic correspondence owned by O'Neal.

It's quite the nasty little lawsuit and it's not the type of thing that O'Neal probably wants to deal with.

Shaquille O'Neal's ex-wife Shaunie tried to meet with his mistress to convince her to go public with the affair in an effort to derail the terms of her pre-nup, a well-placed source told RadarOnline.com exclusively.

What's more, Shawn Darling, the man suing the NBA star for computer hacking, is reportedly writing a tell-all book in which he plans to expose Shaunie's plans to walk away with more money in her divorce.

"Shaunie is freaking out," the source told RadarOnline.com. "She'll probably be deposed in his case and she does not want this information to come out."

According to the source, when Shaunie discovered that Shaq was having an affair with Vanessa Lopez, she devised a plan to expose Shaq as an adulterer.

"She reached out to Vanessa last October through Shawn, who was working for the family at the time," the source revealed. "Shawn called Vanessa and told her Shaunie wanted to meet her in the food court at her local mall in Orlando. They made plans to meet at Johnny Rockets at 2 p.m. on a Tuesday."

The source said that Shaunie offered Lopez "an incentive" to meet with her.

"She wanted to convince Vanessa to go public about her affair with Shaq because that way Shaunie could accuse Shaq of adultery, which would nullify the pre-nup and give her more money in the divorce."

The plan ultimately backfired however. Lopez called Shaq and informed him of Shaunie's plan and was advised by his divorce attorney not to meet at the last minute.

According to the insider, Shaunie is now facing a new problem: the man she confided in is now writing a tell-all book.

"Shaunie signed a confidentiality agreement when she married Shaq," the source said. "But then she went and told Shawn Darling personal things-including asking him to contact Vanessa Lopez and convince her to meet.

"Now Shawn is threatening to expose Shaunie in the book and she's scared, not only because she'll be named, but because now Shaq could turn around and sue her for breach of contract."

RadarOnline.com's calls to Shaunie O'Neal and her attorney Sorrell Trope requesting comment were not returned.

Justin Zormelo, the man Shaquille O’Neal allegedly hired to harass his mistress Vanessa Lopez, is lashing out at the claims, calling them "untrue".

As RadarOnline.com reported, Lopez, who is represented by famed attorney Gloria Allred, filed an amended harassment lawsuit against Shaq in Orange County, Florida in which she named Zormelo as the man O’Neal hired to send her harassing voicemails and text messages.

In an email to RadarOnline.com on Thursday, Zormelo denied any involvement with O'Neal or Lopez.

"The allegations are completely untrue. I have never spoken to that woman, nor threatened her. The information released has no merit," he wrote.

However, RadarOnline.com has uncovered some damning new evidence that could shoot down Zormelo's denial.

In the email sent to Radar, Zormelo included his cell phone number, which happens to match identically with the cell number in a text message we've verified as being between Shaq and another party.

In that text message, dated October, 2009, Shaq includes Lopez's cell number with the message, "dis is da numba shut dat bi*ch up!"

The person matching Zormelo's cell number writes back, "Consider it done famo."

In her lawsuit, Lopez alleges that Zormelo flew to Orlando, Florida, specifically to scare and threaten her after her five-year affair with O'Neal went south.

According to the court papers, Shaq hired Zormelo to do so after she threatened to tell his wife Shaunie about their affair.

She claims Zormelo even indentified himself on one of the calls she received from Orlando's airport on October 1, 2009.

"I can tell you write now that Shaq probably woke up this morning, read the stories about him online and started panicking," Shawn Darling, Shaq’s former employee who also has a lawsuit pending against the NBA star, told RadarOnline.com.

"He probably thought, 'I can't call Radar myself so I'll make Justin do it.

"This is Shaq's problem. He gets himself into trouble and then he digs an even deeper hole trying to get out of it.

"Justin is burying himself by denying he had anything to do with harassing Vanessa Lopez.

"The same number that he emailed you is the same one on Vanessa’s phone bill in Gloria Allred's file."

EXCLUSIVE: Shaquille O'Neal's Ex-Mistress Claims Her Lawsuit Is The Weak Versus The PowerfulEXCLUSIVE: Shaquille O'Neal's Ex-Mistress Claims Her Lawsuit Is The Weak Versus The Powerful
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Posted on Apr 04, 2011 @ 02:10PM print it send it
WENNThe woman who is suing Shaquille O’Neal for harassment has had her high-powered attorney Gloria Allred fire back at the basketball star’s motion to dismiss her lawsuit, claiming his threats are: “of the large, powerful, and wealthy to the small, weak and unpowerful” RadarOnline.com can exclusively report.

Vanessa Lopez has claimed that Shaq harassed her through his sister and another man, Justin Zormelo, via menacing phone calls and text messages in the documents filed in a Florida court in March, exclusively obtained by RadarOnline.com.

PHOTOS: Sexy Photos Of Shaq’s Mistress Vanessa Lopez

Her response to O’Neal’s motion to dismiss claimed that he had his sister and an associate “terrorize” her.

“O’Neal was angry,” the documents state. “There were unconditioned threats to Lopez. O’Neal’s threats to Lopez are of the large, powerful, and wealthy to the small, weak and unpowerful.”

“O’Neal has family, friends, and employees to carry out his threats.”

PHOTOS: Shaq’s Mistress, Dominica Westling

The documents also claim that Shaq carries guns stating: “O’Neal is a large, powerful, wealthy man and a professional athlete and that he carries firearms from time to time.”

Lopez is portrayed as “a professional model with a small build, weighing less than 100 pounds, and lacking the physical power, wealth and connections of O’Neal.”

The documents detail his alleged harassment, which was previously reported by RadarOnline.com and denied by O’Neal’s alleged “henchman” Zormelo.

PHOTOS: Lawyer Announces Mistress Will Sue Shaq

“After receiving numerous calls from O’Neal, Lopez told O’Neal that ‘if you don’t leave me alone I am going to tell Shaunie about us.’

“Within minutes, Lopez received a call from Ayesha Harrison, O’Neal’s 6’6” sister. Harrison called Lopez leaving verbal and physical threats on Lopez’s voice mail which threats included involving O’Neal’s other sister, Latifah, 6’8”, who lives down the block from Lopez. Lopez became very fearful of her own safety.”

“At the end of September 2009, an unknown male caller told Lopez ‘to watch her back.’ In the twelve years prior that the Plaintiff had the telephone number, she had never received threatening, alarming or unusual phone calls.

“Quite the contrary, O’Neal then proceeded to hack into Lopez’s text messages and voice mails without Lopez’s knowledge or consent using some extremely sophisticated software. O’Neal not only knew the contents of private communications to and from Lopez, but also used spy technology to delete incriminating voice mails and text messages from Lopez’s cell phone.

“Afraid that he could not control or trust Lopez, O’Neal text messaged an associate, Justin Zormelo, and told Mr. Zormelo ‘dis is da numba shut dat [Swearing is not permitted at Clublakers. You must edit this post prior to submitting.] up!’ providing Justin with Lopez’s cellular phone number.

“Mr. Zormelo responded by texting to O’Neal, ‘consider it done famo.’”

PHOTOS: Celebrity Cheaters

Lopez claims that the harassment started at the end of September 2009 when she told O’Neal that she might be pregnant and continued into December 2009, so she filed her complaint in January 2010.

She is asking for damages in an unspecified amount.

Glad Shaq's no longer a Laker. What a distraction!

SHAQ, just retire already with the Celtics at the end of the year. You won't win another ring. We'll happily retire your jersey after pounding you in the Finals this year, if the Bulls don't pound you guys first.
