Darling worked as Shaq's IT guy from 2007 to 2009, where he worked on several creepy projects for the NBA star.
He has allegedly witnessed O'Neal hacking into voicemails, use law enforcement contacts to gain info about his mistresses,
throw a personal computer with evidence in a nearby lake and conspire with active police to frame Darling for a criminal offense.
In August 2008, Shaq began an affair with Alexis Miller, who is sued him for harassment and stalking. O'Neal asked his employee to find every email and text that he sent to Miller. He then performed a "Defense Department type wipe of O'Neal's computer" at Shaq's request.
And if that wasn't enough, the lawsuit details that "O'Neal, along with his houseboy Joe Caballero, disposed of the computer in the lake behind O'Neal's house and gave Darling cash to buy another replacement I-Mac."
It started to get really bad in October 2009 when Shaq began an affair with Vanessa Lopez. Darling reached out to the girl to warn her that O'Neal was trying to break into her voicemail, deleting messages and changing her passwords. Then, she ratted on him!
The employee claims that Shaq began to send him threatening messages, attempted to break into his voicemail and tried to frame Darling for possession of child pornography with the help of an Arizona detective. His goal was that the computer would be confiscated and the evidence of an affair with Lopez would be gone.
O'Neal's agent wrote, "Got it he will be stopped n pay for this."
The basketball star responded:
"ok but in the meantime o boy needs to be put in jail, we have way too many law enforcement connections to let a criminal try to get over on mine o mine, we don't need any distractions as we deal with Harvard guy, shoe line guy, restaurant guy, real estate guy and everything we are planning to do after basketball life…"
