08:45 AM ET 07.16 | The record producer and former gang member who testified in criminal court that he was kidnapped by gang members looking for a sex tape of Shaquille O'Neal took his claims to civil court Friday, accusing the basketball star of ordering the attack on him. The former NBA star's attorney immediately rejected the accusations, calling them "outlandish" and "pure fiction" in a statement. Robert Ross alleged that O'Neal and Stevens directed gang members to "kidnap, attack, rob and threaten" him "because of the fear that the sex video might become public, and because of defendant O'Neal's raging jealousy." Ross has said in court testimony and in statements to law enforcement that he never had a sex tape of O'Neal, and that he lied about the tape in an attempt to get the money he thought he was owed from the record deal. The lawsuit also contains wild allegations that over the course of their friendship, the basketball star asked Ross to kill a woman he had impregnated, kill a record producer, kill a gang member who had disrespected him and to break an NBA player's shooting arm.

Morning, FN..

If this isn't the biggest bunch of BS the interns at FN have ever put out there, then I don't know what is. Shaq? A criminal mob boss? Really? Seriously? Come on....

Let me put the reality spin on this one...if this shiznet has seriously hit the courts, this boils down to one simple thing....Ross wants some money, simple as that, and rather than get it the old fashioned way, he'd rather steal/bribe/falsely accuse/tie up the court system with this bull ssshhyytteee and get some of Shaq's money. Ridiculous.

Come on, FN interns, you guys can do better than that...

This story is so lame it insults my intelligence. I'm out.

Holla, great people of FN...

Interns, get a life...
