Shawn Darling, a former employee of O’Neal, filed the lawsuit due to intentional infliction of emotional distress, invasion of privacy and civil R.I.C.O. (a racketeering charge). The lawsuit also includes allegations made against him by two former mistresses, Vanessa Lopez and Alexis Miller. At least Tigers’ didn’t sue him.
Darling is claiming that Shaq used his police contacts to spy on Miller and broke into the voicemail of Lopez and changed her password. Darling claims that he has proof in emails, texts, and photos.
