Following a five year torrid on-again, off-again affair with NBA All-Star Shaquille O'Neal, RadarOnline.com has learned exclusively that model Vanessa Lopez thought she was pregnant with the basketball player's child, which prompted O'Neal to allegedly begin harassing her.
According to a source close to Lopez, O'Neal began harassing Lopez back in September, 2009. He also reportedly enlisted the help of others in his sordid mission.
"It went to the extremes of the police getting involved and a report being filed," the insider told RadarOnline.com exclusively.
RadarOnline.com was first to report that Lopez had hired famed attorney Gloria Allred to represent her in a harassment case against O'Neal.
"I can confirm I'm representing Vanessa Lopez," Allred told RadarOnline.com exclusively.
Allred refused to comment further on the details involving Lopez's case.
Shaq's wife Shaunie has filed for legal separation with intent to divorce, after a rocky marriage that was beset by numerous reports.
