DALLAS - According to a report from TMZ, former Dallas Mavericks point guard Rajon Rondo allegedly pulled a gun on the mother of his two children after a confrontation.
“TMZ Sports has learned 36-year-old Ashley Bachelor, Rondo's former partner and mother of his two kids, filed for an emergency protective order in Louisville last week, requesting protection for her, her son and daughter,” stated the report.

It is alleged that while Rondo was playing video games with his 11-year-old son, Bachelor asked the child to separate laundry. This apparently sent Rondo into a rampage, as he allegedly ripped the gaming console out of the wall.
“Bachelor says the kids were upset after witnessing their dad losing it, so she tried to ‘deescalate’ the situation. But, she says Rajon responded by making a death threat, allegedly saying, “‘You're dead,’” the report continued.
“Rondo temporarily left the home, according to Ashley, before returning about 15 minutes later, when he allegedly approached a back door and began banging on the window with his gun.”

He eventually returned to the Lakers in August 2021, but was traded to the Cavaliers in January 2022.
