Rajon Rondo allegedly pulled gun on family during meltdown
Cavaliers NBA player Rajon Rondo allegedly pulled a gun on his former partner and threatened her life in front of their kids. What happened with Rondo.
Former Celtics guard and current Cavaliers NBA star Rajon Rondo allegedly pulled a gun on his former partner, Ashley Bachelor, and threatened to kill her in front of their two kids, according to TMZ.
Bachelor was reportedly granted an emergency protective order for herself and their son and daughter by a local judge last week.
TMZ reported that Rondo has not yet been arrested or charged.
What did Rajon Rondo do?
Bachelor alleges the 36-year-old was playing video games with his son, when she asked their boy to separate laundry. She reportedly claimed that the two-time NBA champion then became angry and ripped the game console out of the wall before he smashed other items, including a teacup and trash cans in front of their son.
Bachelor says the children became visibly upset at that point and she tried to deescalate the situation. Rondo then yelled “you’re dead” at Bachelor and left the home, returning 15 minutes later with a gun banging on the back window.
He allegedly told her to “go get my f—ing son!”, and Bachelor complied out of panic. Rondo then “yanked” the boy, according to Bachelor and began screaming at him and asking why he’s fearing his father. Rondo then reportedly demanded his daughter to come outside and continued with the same behavior.
Bachelor filed for the protective order on May 13, and told the judge that there have been more situations like this with Rondo.
“Rondo has a history of volatile, erratic, explosive behavior”
“I am extremely fearful for my safety and for the safety of my children. Rajon has a history of volatile, erratic, explosive behavior,” Bachelor said. “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–ch.’
“Rajon verbally assaults our daughter. He calls her names like ‘thot, b—h, and d–khead.’ Rajon has made several threats on my life, saying at various times he will shoot me or shoot up my car.”
A judge granted Bachelor the protective order.
Rondo, who is set to become a free agent this summer, began last season with the Los Angeles Lakers before being traded in January to the Cleveland Cavaliers to a three-team deal. He averaged 4.8 points and 4.4 points per game.
