Shaq has a bit of legal problem… his former mistress, Vanessa Lopez, is suing him for intentional infliction of emotional distress and assault.
She claims that Shaq began harassing her after he learned that she might be pregnant.
Now Vanessa wants to depose Kobe Bryant because she wants to hear about some advice Shaq allegedly gave Kobe when he was facing his rape charges.
Kobe apparently told cops that Shaq "had paid up to $1 million in hush money to various women."
