When predatory celebrity lawyer Gloria Allred drops your case, you know it sucks.
Shaquille O’Neal’s former mistress, Vanessa Lopez, has been trying to sue the basketballer for “racketeering, invasion of privacy, and intentional infliction of emotional distress” since 2010, when she first filed. According to RadarOnline, basically she is accusing him of going agro on her after she told him she was pregnant.
Allred and the plaintiff’s other lawyers have now removed themselves from her case, citing allegations of criminality and “fraud.” But since when has alleged dishonesty gotten in the way of an über-successful defense lawyer? Strange.
