According to TMZ, Shaq scored a HUGE legal victory — the lawsuit filed by an alleged ex-mistress who claimed the NBA star harassed her following their breakup has been dismissed … because the judge says she’s a LIAR.
As we reported, Vanessa Lopez filed her lawsuit against Shaq back in 2010 claiming she was his mistress for 5 years … and once she broke up with him, he launched a campaign to harass her and make her fear for her safety.
But the Florida judge just lowered the legal boom on Lopez in his ruling — claiming the court CAUGHT HER in several lies … proving it’s impossible to believe anything that comes out of her mouth.
“[Lopez] lied often. She lied about facts important to the defense, and she demonstrated an utter disrespect for the system of justice,” the judge stated.
Among Lopez’s lies — the judge says Vanessa claimed she “did not know of” any previous restraining orders that had been issued against her … when there were official records showing she was hit with one stemming from a case involving an ex-boyfriend.
The judge says there’s also proof she lied about her legal history with NBA star Kenyon Martin … who had accused her of stealing his credit card and running up charges.
And there’s this … Vanessa’s lawyers completely deserted her almost immediately following her deposition earlier this year … a huge red flag.
Lopez’s lawsuit was dismissed on the basis of fraud on the court — with prejudice, meaning she can’t refile.
