Ashley Bachelor, Rajon Rondo’s, who currently plays for the Cleveland Cavaliers, former girlfriend and the mother of his two children, has alleged that during a freakout that took place on May 11th, he pulled a gun on her and his children. Bachelor said that while Rondo was playing video games with his son, Pierre, when she asked the child to put his laundry away. According to Bachelor, Rondo then ripped the game console out of the wall and continued on a path of destruction, breaking everything in his path.
When Bachelor attempted to calm Rondo, who had made his children upset with the outburst, she says that he threatened her, saying, “You’re dead.” Rondo then left the house and returned about fifteen minutes later, carrying a gun. He banged on the window and demanded that Bachelor bring Pierre to him.
In fear of her life, Bachelor agreed and Rondo took his son outside, before also requesting that his daughter join him. Rondo saw that his children were upset, and while outside with them, he yelled at them for being afraid of their father.
Soon after, Rondo’s parents arrived on the scene and, according to Bachelor, were not successful in calming Rondo, though he did eventually leave Bachelor’s home.
“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 ‘pussy’ and accuses him of acting like a ‘bitch.’ Rajon verbally assaults our daughter. He calls her names like ‘thot, bitch, and dickhead.’ Rajon has made several threats on my life, saying at various times he will shoot me or shoot up my car,” wrote Bachelor in an emergency order of protection, dated May 13.
Since the incident, a judge has ordered a temporary protective order that Rondo stay at least five hundred feet away from his family while Bachelor has been awarded custody of the two children, as as a mandate that Rondo turn his firearms over to the court. The NBA is aware of the situation and is currently investigating.
At this time, Rondo has not commented on the issue, nor has any arrest been made.
