The divorce battle between Shaquille O’Neal and his estranged wife Shaunie is getting uglier by the day, just like all divorce battles between celebrities and their spouses. According to a new report from TMZ, Shaq has been interrogating the couple’s children and firing off death threats to Shaunie’s new boyfriend by way of their 6-year-old son.

Shaunie O’Neal’s lawyers just fired off a letter to Shaq’s people, claiming the bball star “interrogated” the couple’s children to tell him everything they knew about her new man … “to the point that they felt intimidated and scared of him.” Shaunie also claims Shaq told their 6-year-old son to tell her boyfriend that Shaq “is going to kill him” — and that Shaq even screamed at the kid and said, “Say it now! My daddy is going to kill you!”

Shaunie’s lawyers are demanding Shaq halt “further inappropriate discussions” with their children — which is an alleged violation of the non-disparagement provision of their divorce judgment.

Shaq is extra childish for that mess! Can’t deny the humor in it though: “Say it now! My daddy is going to kill you!” LOL!!
