Kobe Bryant Summoned to Court For Shaq

South By Southwest Interactive Festival – Day 4 So one of Shaquille O’Neal’s ex-mistresses wants to involve Kobe Bryant in a suit she’s filed against O’Neal. According to EURWeb, “Kobe Bryant is being called out in a lawsuit filed against Shaq for ‘intentional infliction of emotional distress and assault.’” The woman suing is Vanessa Lopez, who apparently wants to know what advice did Shaq give to Kobe when he was under investigation for allegations of rape in Colorado. More: At any rate, while Bryant was under investigation, he reportedly told cops that O’Neal would pay up to $1 million in hush money to different women. O’Neal denied the claim at the time and the rape charge against Bryant was eventually dropped. Bryant denied the claim, and eventually the rape charges were dropped. Lopez wants to know about the supposed hush money in an effort to prove O’Neal will go to extremes to sleep around without blowing his cover. In the meantime, the mistress says she lives her life in fear since being threatened by O’Neal and his sister. “I live every day fearing for my safety. I now have extreme anxiety because of Shaquille O’Neal’s campaign to intimidate and silence me. Since the incidents began I have been plagued by anxiety and depression for which I have taken medication.” (The views contained herein are solely the views of their respective authors, and do not express the views of TV One.
