Shaquille O’neal says his former weed trading partners kicked him out of a ton of money – and now he’s suing them for over a million dollars.
The Big Diesel explained it all in a new lawsuit, obtained by TMZ Sports, in which the NBA legend claims that he and his complainant colleague, Jerome Crawford, invested $ 150,000 in a new marijuana business in December 2016.
In the lawsuit, Shaq said their investment was supposed to help the company “seek opportunities in the field of legal cannabis.”
O’Neal, however, claims that at the end of 2017 … the company “apparently had no licenses, no revenues, and no operations.”
Shaq says that when he and his lawyers asked for details of how their money was being used, the company initially did not respond.
In 2018, Shaq said that after threatening legal action, the company agreed to reimburse him and Crawford in installments of $ 10,000 each.
The problem … Shaq claims the company only paid the first installment of $ 20,000 – and now he’s suing to recoup his initial investment with interest … and much more for allegedly mismanaging the company.
In the documents, Shaq and Crawford seek damages in excess of $ 1 million.
