During a trial of L.A. gang members this week, a music producer admits there once WAS a sex tape of former NBA star Shaquille O’Neal but that it no longer exists. Robert Ross says the tape was erased.
Ross testified that he was kidnapped, beaten and threatened by seven gang members who are now on trial. He claims the men threatened him if he didn’t deliver the Shaq sex tape. Ross had been in a finacial dispute with Shaq and his manager over a commission upon delivering the musician Ray J. Shaq’s people refused to pay Ross. He retaliated by threatening to leak the tape of O’Neal having sex with a woman who was not his wife. Shortly after the dispute, the gang members allegedly kidnapped Ross.
Police investigating the case did interview Shaq but he was not charged. Ross testified in court that the tape was “gone.” He claims there was a tape recorded on his home security camera but it was recorded over.
