Are Shaq’s wife and mistress BFF’s now? Well, not exactly, but according to some exclusive info from RadarOnline, they have strategically joined forces to uncover damaging information about Shaq. Shaunie O’Neal, Shaq’s wife, filed for divorce in November, 2009. (Peep the back story here.) While building her case, she learned of Shaq’s alleged mistress, Vanessa Lopez. The kicker is that this affair was allegedly a 5 year relationship. According to this report, b/c Shaunie had a prenuptial agreement and needed to further build her case, she tried to convince Vanessa to come forward. “Shaunie wanted out of the marriage for a long time and because of her prenup she wanted to prove infidelity and mental abuse,” the source said. “That would give her more money.”
“Shaunie’s investigator found emails and voice mails that will hurt Shaq in the divorce,” the source said. Back in January 2010, Vanessa’s lawyer’s announced that she was suing Shaq alleging harassment, etc.
Looks like both women now have the leverage that they need. In real life, my heart goes out to all parties. From the outside looking in, it’s entertaining, but I’m sure it’s not when involved.
