Shaquille O’Neil’s ex-mistress, Vanessa Lopez and her attorney, Gloria Allred, will hold a news conference Tuesday morning in Los Angeles, to announce the filing of a lawsuit by Lopez against the NBA legend.
Lopez, according to a press release from Allred, "was Shaquille’s girlfriend until recently," and "will explain her feelings about the harassment which she has been forced to endure."
Allred said in the press release she will explain what the lawsuit alleges at the press conference, which is slated to begin at 11:30 a.m.
RadarOnline.com was the first to expose the secret five-year affair between Shaq and Lopez; as we reported, the Cleveland Cavaliers center has been linked to at least three mistresses: Lopez, Atlanta hip hop artist Alexis Miller and Swedish model Dominica Westling.
We were front and center when Lopez landed at LAX airport Monday, after a five-hour flight from Orlando, Florida. Clad in high heels and a fur trimmed parka, Lopez answered "no comment" to all of our Shaq-related questions; our sources told us Lopez is under strict instructions from Allred to not speak to the media.
On the basketball court this year, O'Neal hasn't been nearly as busy, averaging 10.7 points and 7.1 rebounds per game -- both career lows -- as the 38-year-old center seems to be winding down his hoops career.
O'Neal's wife, Shaunie, has filed for legal separation with intent to divorce; their next hearing is scheduled for March.
