Rajon Rondo is being accused of domestic violence involving the mother of his children.
Cleveland Cavaliers point guard Rajon Rondo is in hot water after news broke of a domestic violence dispute erupting from a heated altercation with the mother of his two children.
TMZ Sports reported, “Ashley Bachelor, Rondo’s former partner and mother of his two kids, filed for an emergency protective order in Louisville last week, requesting protection for her, her son and daughter.”
Bachelor alleges on May 11, Rondo and their son were playing video games when she requested their child to separate some laundry. Rondo reportedly became furious and ripped the console out of the wall in front of their son. He would then go into a fit of rage, destroying many objects on the property before leaving the premises, only to return 15 minutes later armed with a handgun.
Rondo then instructed his ex to bring him their children while making a death threat. While his parents were brought in to deescalate the situation, that did not seem to do much. He would eventually leave the premise entirely on his own accord.
Rajon Rondo allegedly involved in a frightening domestic violence incident
Warning: The following details can be graphic and could possibly trigger domestic violence victims.
Bachelor wrote the following in her emergency protection order from May 13.
“I am extremely fearful for my safety and for the safety of my children. Rajon has a history of volatile, erratic, explosive behavior. He is verbally, emotionally, and financially abusive. He physically hits our son and calls him names like ‘p***y’ and accuses him of acting like a ‘b***h.’”
She continued in her message to say their daughter receives similar verbal abuse as her brother.
“Rajon verbally assaults our daughter. He calls her names like ‘t**t, b***h, and d******d.’ Rajon has made several threats on my life, saying at various times he will shoot me or shoot up my car.”
While Bachelor and her children were granted protection from these horrifying events by a local Louisville area judge, there has been no comment on the matter from Rondo’s representation. As far as TMZ Sports knows, there has not been any criminal activity surrounding Rondo and he has not been arrested. Even if there are no other charges, this is a terrible look for the point guard.
Since this is an ongoing matter, we will bring to you more information on this as it comes to light.
