After nearly three months since placing a restraining order on NBA superstar
Shaquille O'Neal, Atlanta rapper Alexis Miller has withdrawn her request.

According to TMZ, the Southern emcee who claimed the four-time basketball champion stalked and threatened her on multiple occasions has decided not to pursue a permanent restraint in Fulton County Superior Court. 

Originally scheduled to appear in court today (November 13), the two may likely worked out a settlement despite Shaq's denial of all charges. 

As previously reported by SOHHMiller was granted a restraining order against the basketball star last August after claiming he threatened her over the phone and in several e-mails. 

According to Atlanta Journal-Constitution, the two were allegedly romantically involved before breaking up mid-summer, when she claims he "threatened to 'blackball' [her] from the recording industry by paying established artists...$500 each for their agreement to refuse to perform or record with her in the future."

In addition to verbal threats, Miller reportedly saved e-mails from the NBA champ threatening her life.

"I dnt no who the fuk u think u dealin wit," one message read. "u will neva be heard from one phone call is all I gotta make no try me. Sho me."

A rep from either was unavailable for comment at press time.
