Rajon Rondo was ordered to stay away from his ex-girlfriend after she obtained an emergency protection order against the NBA guard in a Louisville court. In a May 13, 2022 court filing, Ashley Bachelor, the mother of Rondo’s two children, accused him of pulling a gun during a “violent” outburst after he became “angry” in court during an incident at her home on May 11 records had been received from Heavy Show.

The 36-year-old former University of Kentucky standout, who finished last season with the Cleveland Cavaliers and spent the prime of his career with the Boston Celtics, has not responded to the allegations. It was not immediately clear whether Rondo had hired a lawyer. Bachelor has also not publicly commented on the incident, which was first reported by TMZ. The NBA told TMZ Sports the league is aware of the report and is investigating it.

Jefferson County Family Court Judge Denise Brown issued the emergency protection order May 13, according to court documents obtained by Heavy. According to court records, Rondo is barred from contacting Bachelor and his children, and is not allowed to go to their home, work or school, or within 500 feet of them. Bachelor has been granted interim custody of their two children. Bachelor has also asked that the judge order Rondo to undergo anger management, a mental health assessment and counseling. The court order also requires him to turn over any guns he possesses to the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office.

Brown noted that according to the court record, there is “an imminent and present threat of domestic violence and abuse.” Rondo will have an opportunity to respond to the allegations in court, and a judge will then weigh the validity of the Bachelor case to determine whether the protective order will go ahead. It was not immediately clear when a court hearing would take place. Court records currently show no criminal charges against Rondo. Police were not called to the incident, according to Bachelor’s complaint.

In the court filing, Bachelor said Rondo was at her house playing video games with her son when she asked the younger Rondo to stop for five minutes so he could separate his laundry and then return to the game. Bachelor said Rondo got “angry” when her son got up and “ripped the video game console off the wall.”

She said Rondo then went downstairs to the kitchen, where Bachelor “made some tea for our sick daughter” and “took the teacup and plate and smashed them,” according to court records. Bachelor said Rondo “knocked over several water bottles and generally yelled and cursed.” She said Rondo also shredded things in the home office and garage, knocked over trash cans, stomped on landscape lights and ran his car over the law, the reports said court records.

“The children were very upset and distressed because they saw Rajon get so angry and violent. I tried to de-escalate the situation by asking Rajon why he was behaving this way. Rajon responded by threatening my life and saying, “You are dead.” This is not the first connection where Rajon has threatened to kill me,” Bachelor wrote.

Bachelor said Rondo returned about 15 minutes later and drove his car through the back yard of his home, which is a property next to where Bachelor lives, and into her back yard, according to the court document. “He started banging his gun on the back door window. I was in my ground floor room. I couldn’t immediately understand what was going on, so I went to the family room. There I saw Rajon hit the back door window with his gun in hand,” Bachelor wrote.

According to the complaint, Rondo then yelled at Bachelor to bring his son to him. She said the boy came to the door and opened it and Rajon grabbed the child and “yanked outside” and slammed the door behind him, the complaint said. She said Rondo continued to “scream and verbally abuse” her son and “asked him why he was afraid of him.” Bachelor wrote that Rondo “continued to hold his gun while yelling at her son,” and said she was “afraid I’d get shot if I tried to stop him.”

Bachelor said Rondo “yelled and verbally abused” his two children, demanded to know why they were afraid of him and effectively held them at gunpoint. The children were visibly upset and obviously scared that Rajon would keep drawing his gun.”

Bachelor said in the complaint that she did not call the Louisville Police Department because she was “afraid of what Rajon might do if a formal complaint was made.” I was concerned that Rajon’s anger would worsen and result in harm to myself or the children,” court documents obtained by Heavy said. According to the court document, she called Yvette Genty, the former Louisville police chief, instead. Gentry could not be reached for comment from Heavy.

According to the court document, Rondo’s father, William Rondo, his mother, Amber Rondo, and his former basketball coach, Douglas Bibby, all came into the house and tried to calm Rondo down, but were unable to. Brown then arrived, according to the bachelor file.

“I tried to let her in, but Rajon prevented her from entering by standing between her and the door. Rajon kept wielding his gun so I decided to lock all the doors and the garage and stay upstairs with the kids,” Bachelor wrote. “Slightly later, Ms. Gentry confirmed that Rajon had left and that she was now in possession of his gun.”

Bachelor added, “I’m very scared for my safety and for the safety of my children. Rajon has a history of inconsistent, unpredictable, explosive behavior. He’s verbally, emotionally and financially abusive.” She said he “physically hits our son and calls him names like ‘p****’ and accuses him of acting like a ‘b****’.

She wrote: “Rajon verbally attacks our daughter. He calls their names like ‘thot, b**** and d***head. Rajon has threatened my life several times and has said at different times that he will shoot me or shoot up my car. I am not afraid that Rajon will come back and try to harm me or the children and follow through on his threats to end my life. I seek immediate protection for myself and the children from any further contact with Rajon.”

Bachelor added, “I’m very scared for my safety and for the safety of my children. Rajon has a history of inconsistent, unpredictable, explosive behavior. He’s verbally, emotionally and financially abusive.” She said he “physically hits our son and calls him names like ‘p****’ and accuses him of acting like a ‘b****’.
