Things are getting REALLY ugly REALLY fast between Shaq and his ex-wifey, and her reality show hasn't even started shooting yet!!
As we previously mentioned, Shaunie O'Neal is taking the big man to court after he allegedly refused to let their kiddies appear on her upcoming reality series The Shaunie Project!
However, she's saying his decision has NOTHING to do with the kids and is all about jealousy! According to Shaq's ex-wife, he tried on three separate occasions to start up a reality series of his own with their children, but each attempt fell through! Now she says the only way he'll give her the green light is if she coughs up $1 million!!
Well Shaq's team is already firing back at the accusations and say they're all a load of bull poop!
Not only does the former basketballer say he could have his own reality series any time he wants it, he says he doesn't even NEED her money right now! That's probably true considering he seems to be doing just fine as an analyst on TNT!
Shaunie, however, says she needs the money from the show just to get by, but sources close to Shaq say he's already paying her $100,000 a month in child support payments!
The two will be heading to court late next month for a hearing on the matter, even though Shaunie previously said her show would start shooting in January and that she needed to get the green light ASAP!!
Jeez! Can't these two just play nice?
