Two weeks ago, future Hall of Famer Shaquille O'Neal retired from the NBA after 19 seasons. What came next was a big question. Well, in the immediate future, it looks like he has to deal with some weird stuff.

According to TMZ.com, Shaq is in the middle of a robbery, sex tape and kidnapping situation.
Law enforcement sources tell TMZ ... Ladell Rowles -- a member of the Main Street Mafia Crip Gang in L.A. who is friends with Shaq -- along with 6 other members went on a search and destroy mission in L.A. on February 11, 2008.  They believed a man named Robert Ross had the sex tape and they tried getting it back with the help of a gun or two.

According to the police report, the seven gang members met up with Ross at a convenience store -- Pink Dot -- on the Sunset Strip.  The men allegedly surrounded Ross' Rolls Royce Phantom with guns drawn, jumped into Ross' car and ordered him to drive to Rowles' house in South Central L.A.

Once there, Rowles allegedly pistol whipped Ross and demanded that he turn over the sex tape.  Ross said he would get the tape and bring it back to them.  The seven men then allegedly took Ross' Rolex, diamond chain and earrings, along with $15,000 in cash -- then let Ross go.

The seven men have been arrested and charged with robbery, kidnapping and other crimes. They are currently in the middle of a preliminary hearing and being held in jail.

We've learned LAPD detectives interviewed Shaq to determine what, if any, involvement he had in the alleged crimes.  When the case file went to the D.A. Shaq was not listed as a suspect.
As for the supposed sex tape, Ross claims Shaq brought women to Ross' home and had sex with them while he was married to ex-wife Shaunie. Reportedly, Ross told Shaq that a security camera had caught the action. However, Ross told police that the security footage automatically recycled and no longer exists.

TMZ contacted Shaq's representatives, but hasn't heard back yet.

Must be a slow day to bring up questionable stuff that supposibly happened over 3 years ago but now it all of a sudden comes out. Seems someone is reaching for news.

A couple of things I find strange here.  First why is Shaq friends with known gang members?  This is the first time I've heard Shaq's name associated with something or someone that is negative like this.  Secondly, why is there a source in law enforcement talking to TMZ about a case involving Shaq?  Shouldn't they be talking to Shaq and his attorney instead of some radical website worker?  Isn't TMZ a lot like the tabloid the Star?

HEY LONGISLAND

Why are you such an oversensitive little whiny baby?  Before you go accusing warnertoholt of being a racist, why don't you take a look at his posts and see that he is a freakin diehard NBA fan.  You little crybaby.

@WarnertoHolt,   

"If anyone wants to watch the tape I heard that National Geographic bought all of the rights to it. "   What does this mean?  Sounds racist to me!  You a little kid looking to see some boobs on the cover or what? What are you suggesting about Shaq? What are you even talking about at all? You calling Shaq and anyone he had sex with an animal?  Please explain to me what you mean by your statement.  Your just a sad little person who makes snide little remarks!

Easy alibi....I had nothing to do with it.  they were going to try to black mail me with it.   One question....Why would Shaq be worried about that tape now? if it was while he was married to an ex wife it is years ago and not much to lose.

Irony: you call someone a moron while ending your post with "LOL!" If you're a little slow on the up-take, it's moronic to use LOL.

Oh would it be better if I spelt the entire thing, here you go LAUGH OUT LOUD. Does that make me smarter? Get out of here you idiot.

They pistol whip the guy, rob him blind and let him go without the tape? Way to have some of the dumbest friends Shaq! This reads like an episode of Americas Dumbest Criminals. It proves that an education is the only way to escape stupidity.
