Shaquille O’Neal has been questioned by the Los Angeles Police Department over the kidnapping and beating of a local music producer by gang members.
The producer claims that O’Neal hired the Main Street Mafia Crips to retrieve a tape of the basketball star cheating on his then wife, Shaunie O’Neal.
Promoter Robert Ross says that he threatened to release the tape after a dispute between the two.
Seven members of the vicious Main Street Mafia Crips have been arrested and charged with kidnapping, robbery, assault and other crimes.
The hardened street thugs allegedly abducted one-time O’Neal associate Robert Ross in his Phantom Rolls Royce on the night of the 2008 Grammy Awards — then beat and pistol-whipped him while demanding the sex tape back, according to Ross’ testimony.
