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.

Josh, get a grip. Do you live by the most perfect moral code? No. Perfection is out of your reach. I PROMISE you aren't perfect. And you are also not susceptible to the same decisions these guys have to make. You don't have hundreds of folks dropping everything to please you. I'm almost positive it is harder to stay on the straight line as a celebrity with all of its fame and money. Also, you need to quit sounding as if you are surprised. If you really are worried about the lives of people, be worried about your own. I'm certain that you have a pedofile living within 25 miles of your home. I'm certain you come across greedy, gluttonous, perverse people EVERY single day, that you pass in the store or anywhere. Don't be naive. In your world of imaginary perfections, nobody exists.

LOL, You and me both brother! If the media thinks I'm going to latch onto this bag of shenanigans and start bashing Shaq because of his adultery, they're wrong. I don't have time to waste judging others. I'm trying to worry about my own misgivings, lol. As for the 7 guys rushing a guy driving a Rolls Royce, this sounds like a movie!
