The Shaq retirement hilarity continues.
Every week some more emails are released and every week we learn that similar to Charles Barkley no matter what Shaq has done we don’t really care as long as he makes us laugh.
This round of email courtesy of Deadspin shows that Shaq is worried that TMZ will expose him ala Tiger Woods.
The Miami New Times has released its third round of leaked emails from Shaquille O’Neal’s account. This time, we’re treated to a panicked exchange between Diesel and his agent, Robert Parrish, after Shaq’s Blue Chips costar Anthony C. Hall had forwarded an email he’d received from a woman named Christina. A TMZ reporter named Eric had asked her to cooperate for a story on her relationship with Shaq for $3,500.
Shaq: Tmz is offering people money, read below
Parrish: We can’t stop them from offering money. Every pic every story is for sale. We will have Dennis [Roach, Shaq’s attorney] send the a letter. We got to be careful we don’t want TMZ reporting that Shaq and his people are trying to start us from reporting “news”. We know its bs but the will use anything to promote their site. They would love to have a “riff” with Shaq. Who is Christina we need to talk to her.Chief and I are having breakfast with you in the morning.
Shaq: They kno the emails are stolen, that’s why they contacting , people. Thet are harassing, those emails are stolen
Parrish: I got a contact now with TMZ I’m talking with
Shaq: The point is we dnt want them do what they r doing to tiger, they got him wit steroids and all dat shit
Parrish: We are working hard on this. Although the stuff is stolen TMZ n the other website marketing themselves as gossip entertainment not credible new reporting ie CNN, I’m with you on this we are going to see how good our contact is
Shaq: Ok but in the meantime o boy needs to b put in jail, we have way to many law enforcement connections to let a criminal try to get over on mine o mine, we dnt need any distraction was we deal with our harvard guy, shoe line guy, retaraunt guy, real estate guy, and everything we are planning to do for the after basketball life. I promised u I would stay outta trouble, I kept my word, but cannot control somebody dtealing and selling emails. Come on now protect me from this.
I lost my family because of this guy, come on now
Parrish: Got it he will be stopped n pay for this
Shaq does anything to lose his title as the worst emailer of all time. One small thing that is concerning to me is when Shaq says “we have way too many law enforcements connections”, suggesting that Shaq has the power to get someone arrested if they are bothering him.
We already know the stories about the goons and stalking his girlfriends and mistresses, but if he truly had the power to “set up” people to be arrested, maybe that should be investigated because that is pretty serious.
Like I said before if this was Lebron or Kobe this would be a HUGE DEAL, but Shaq seems to have a lifetime pass for people who just shrug this stuff away.
He will fit in well with TNT.
