Alleged Shaq sex tape case: Kidnapping charges dropped

shaquille-oneal.jpg A judge dismissed charges against seven men accused of kidnapping a record producer who claimed he had a sex tape of the recently-retired NBA star, Shaquille O'Neal.

Robert Ross, a record producer and alleged victim, claimed to have possession of a sex tape featuring Shaq with several woman over the course of his marriage to Shaunie O'Neal. He says he told Shaq about the sex tape during a business dispute and then two weeks later he was abducted, assaulted and robbed by seven gang members at the request of the basketball player.

However, Tuesday (August 9) in court the judge threw out the case after the District Attorney stated he no longer found Ross' testimony credible.

Ross also admits he had no such sex tape. Shaq had denied the existence of the tape from the beginning.
