Shaq Sex Tape - Kidnapping, Robbery of Robert Ross by LA Gang Members
Celebrity Crime Beat - Seven alleged Los Angeles gang members are charged with kidnapping and robbing Robert Ross and demanding that he turn over a Shaquille O'Neal sex tape.
Ross and Shaq are one-time pals. Ross testified in court this week that the alleged kidnappers pistol whipped him and "demanded a Shaquille O'Neal sex tape" he had once made from a security camera installed in his house.
Ross claims Shaq brought ladies over to his home for sexual favors while he was still married to Shaunie O'Neal .
The men that demanded the tape from Ross also are alleged to have stolen a diamond chain, Rolex watch, diamond earrings and $15,000 in cash from the man, all at gunpoint.
TMZ reports that the 7 men were arrested and charged with robbery, kidnapping and other crimes.
They are currently in the middle of a preliminary hearing and being held in jail.
The case is an odd mess, even for Hollywood, and CNN reveals "the alleged victim is Robert Ross, who said he was a member of the defendants' Main Street Mafia Crips Gang before he became a music promoter."
Ross says he was robbed and threatened on February 11, 2008.
He testified on Monday that the gang members kidnapped him at gunpoint on Sunset Boulevard in West Hollywood, California, the night of the 2008 Grammy Awards.
He said they took him to Ladell Rowles home, identified by TMZ as "a member of the Main Street Mafia Crip Gang in L.A. who is friends with Shaq."
They wanted the tape, but when he couldn't produce it settled for the cash and jewels after Ross said he would get the tape and bring it back to them.
Instead, the police were called and all were arrested.
The back story between Shaq and Robert Ross is here from TMZ.
It gets even stranger as Ross even claims to have had an affair with Shaq's ex-wife Shaunie.
So where is this alleged tape? Prosecutors say they can't confirm the sex tape actually exists.
