Shaquille O’Neal Accused Of Using Son For Death Threats

Things are getting ugly between basketball star Shaquille O’Neal and his estranged wife Shaunie!

Shaunie claims that Shaq recently ordered their 6-year-old son to deliver death threats to her new boyfriend, TMZ reports.

Shaunie’s lawyers sent a letter to Shaq’s people, claiming that he “interrogated” the couple’s children to tell him everything they knew about her new man, “to the point that they felt intimidated and scared of him.” Shaunie also claims Shaq ordered their son to tell her new beau that Shaq “is going to kill him.” The claims state that Shaq even screamed at their son: “Say it now! My daddy is going to kill you!”

Shaunie’s lawyers are demanding Shaq stop “further inappropriate discussions” with their children, which is an alleged violation of the non-disparagement provision of their divorce judgment.

Shaunie and Shaq – who filed for divorce in November 2009 – are parents to four children: Shareef, Amirah, Shaqir, and Me’arah. Shaq also has two children from previous relationships.

    I’m pretty sure she has one or two children from a previous relationship, too so they have a lot of kids.
