Rajon Rondo’s former partner has reportedly filed an emergency protection order (EPO) in Louisville against the Cavaliers’ guard after claiming he pointed a gun at them and threatened them in front of the couple’s children.
Per TMZ and later confirmed by WDRB in Louisville, Rondo’s former partner Ashley Bachelor says at the EPA that the former Celtics guard lost control when she asked her son to separate the laundry while he was playing video games with Rondo last week. Bachelor claims Rondo was immediately upset and ripped the video game console out of the wall. He then continued breaking objects around the house, telling Bachelor she was “dead.”
Rondo then left the house for 15 minutes and returned with a gun and told them to bring their kids out, according to Bachelor. According to Bachelor, her son was scared, but Rondo pulled him out of the house and yelled at him, asking why he was scared.
Rondo later told Bachelor to bring their daughter out as well and berated both children for being afraid of him. Eventually Rondo’s parents showed up and he left the scene.
Bachelor claims this is not an isolated incident.
“I am very concerned for my safety and the safety of my children,” Bachelor wrote in her protective order application, per TMZ. “Rajon has a history of inconsistent, unpredictable, explosive behavior. He is verbally, emotionally, and financially abusive. He physically hits our son and verbally abuses him like “p–” and accuses him of acting like a “b-”.
“Rajon verbally attacks our daughter. He calls their names like ‘thot, b— and d—head.’ Rajon has threatened me several times with my life and has said at various times that he will shoot me or my car.”
Per TMZ, Bachelor received protection from a local judge.
Last season with the Cavaliers was Rondo’s 16th in the NBA. The four-time All-Star spent eight seasons in Boston.
