Shaquille O’Neal is reportedly linked to a wild criminal case in which gang members allegedly kidnapped and beat a man who claimed to have a sex tape of the NBA legend.
Ladell Rowles and six other men associated with the Main Street Mafia Crip Gang are alleged to have abducted a man named Robert Ross from a Los Angeles convenience store on February 11, 2008, later pistol whipping him and taking jewelry and $15,000 in cash.
Ross previously had a business deal with O’Neal go sour and told the basketball giant he possessed security camera footage of O’Neal having sex with other women before his split with wife Shaunie.
That’s when the gang members supposedly went after Ross for the tape and retribution.
The seven men, currently in custody, are charged with crimes, including robbery and kidnapping.
O’Neal has been interviewed by detectives with the LAPD to determine whether he had any knowledge of the alleged crimes, according to TMZ.
The just-retired NBA star has NOT been named as a suspect, and there’s no evidence that he was involved in the violence.
