During a heated argument, Rajon Rondo reportedly pulled a gun on the mother of his children and threatened to kill her and the woman claims their children observed the entire situation.
According to TMZ Sports, Rondo’s former partner and mother of his two children, Ashley Bachelor, 36, filed for an emergency protective order in Louisville the other week, soliciting protection for herself, her son, and daughter and the thing she says about the alleged incident is terrifying.
According to the Bachelor, Rajon, a two-time NBA champion and four-time All-Star, was playing games with his son on May 11 when Ashley requested the boy to separate laundry. According to Bachelor, Rajon became angered and tore the game console from the wall in front of the child.
Rajon then allegedly continued his abusive behaviour, shattering everything from a teacup to light fixtures and garbage cans, according to Ashley.
Bachelor alleges that the children were upset after seeing their father end up losing it, so she repeatedly tried to “deescalate” the incident. However, she claims Rajon reacted with a death threat, allegedly stating, “You’re dead.”
According to Ashley, Rondo briefly left the house before returning about fifteen minutes later, when he reportedly approached a back door and started banging on the window with his gun.
Bachelor claims she had no clue what was happening on, so she approached the door from the inside to investigate. She reportedly saw Rondo with the gun and requested that he stop because he was frightening her. Rondo, she alleges, did not listen and instead yelled, “Go get my f**king son!”
Ashley claims she was afraid something bad would happen if she can’t obey, so she brought their son, Pierre, downstairs while keeping the backdoor firmly shut.
Ashley says that shortly after, Pierre opened the door and Rondo “yanked him outside.”
According to Bachelor, Rondo, who was still reportedly clutching his gun, screamed at Pierre, asking why the boy was afraid of his father.
Ashley says her son was “visibly upset,” and she claims she didn’t intervene because she was afraid Rajon would shoot her.
According to the Bachelor, Rajon eventually demanded that their daughter come outside… where she claims he yelled at both children for being afraid of him.
Thankfully, Ashley claims Rajon’s mother and father arrived at the family home and while they didn’t make much progress calming Rajon down, she says he ultimately left the scene.
But now, Bachelor is concerned for her and her children’s safety, writing the following in an emergency order of protection on 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 ‘bitch.'”
“Rajon verbally assaults our daughter. He calls her names like ‘thot, bitch, and d**khead.’ Rajon has made several threats on my life, saying at various times he will shoot me or shoot up my car.”
Ashley Bachelor was granted protection by a local judge for herself and her two children.
