According to a lawsuit filed in Orlando, Shaquille O'Neal had henchman Justin Zormelo stalk a mistress named Vanessa Lopez in October 2009. Two months later, Shaq and Zormelo had a bizarre online chat about the job.
Riptide has obtained a stash of several of the Big Berlusconi's salacious and infidelity-laced emails, which were sealed in an explosive local court case.
We briefly spoke with Zormelo, who stated he works for Shaq, and asked him to send us a copy of this chat. He never got back to us.
And yes, that's really Shaq's chat handle.
KING OF DIESEL DOG MAFIA: Send it
J Z: When you gonna be home
KING OF DIESEL DOG MAFIA: Call tony do u kno a vanessa
J Z: Yes. What's up
KING OF DIESEL DOG MAFIA: From were

KING OF DIESEL DOG MAFIA: Whts her last name and did I have u call a vanessa for me

KING OF DIESEL DOG MAFIA: And said what

KING OF DIESEL DOG MAFIA: Liar I never asked you to call a bitch
KING OF DIESEL DOG MAFIA: Who was wit us
J Z: No one. Maybe it was Shawn who asked me then
J Z: Are you with someone right now ?
[Editor's note: From this point, the name "Shawn" starts to come up a lot. In the suit in which these emails were filed, Shaq's former IT guy, Shawn Darling, claims Shaq used this conversation -- which he then forwarded to a law enforcement contact -- to snare Zormelo into saying the rogue IT guy ordered the harassment of Lopez. Maybe so. All we know is we wish we had a subservient henchman we could confuse/intimidate the shit out of on a Tuesday afternoon.]
