CLEVELAND, Ohio (WOIO) - Cleveland Cavaliers G Rajon Rondo allegedly pulled a gun on the mother of his two kids and threatened to kill her, according to a statement from the mother of Rondo’s 2 children, that is included in an Emergency Protection Order ordered against Rondo by a Kentucky court.
NBA spokesperson Mike Bass told ESPN insider Malika Andrews that the league is aware of the report and is gathering more information.
Rondo, the 16-year vet, traded to the Cavs from the Los Angeles Lakers in 2021, allegedly grew angry and disruptive after the mother of his children asked her son to perform a chore that evidently interrupted a video game they were playing.
It was at this point that Rondo left the home and returned 15 minutes later when he allegedly proceeded to bang on the window with a firearm and threatened to kill her.
“There I saw Rajon beating on the back door window with a gun in his hand,” The woman said in her statement that was attached to the protective order.
The judge, claiming that there was an immediate and present danger of domestic violence and abuse ordered Rondo to temporarily stay at least 500 feet away from the mom and the two kids and awarded her temporary custody of the two kids.
The court also ordered Rondo to surrender his firearms to the Jefferson County, Kentucky Sheriff’s office.
The woman went on to allege that Rondo has been abusive in the past.
“I am extremely fearful for my safety and for the safety of my children,” she said in her statement to the court, “Rajon has a history of volatile, erratic, explosive behavior. He is verbally, emotionally and financially abusive.”
Louisville Police tell 19 News they were not called to the scene and have no record of any call to the home in 2022.
