She recalled an alleged incident from September 2022 which led to his domestic battery arrest. Rhoda claimed that Avery "entered my house (even though I asked him not to), climbed in bed with me (twice) and wouldn't leave. He grabbed me by the arms and shook me, twice. I was very scared for my safety and called the police." She also shared bizarre details, claiming that he would walk past her home "several times a day."

"I am scared of Sean," she said in court documents, "and feel threatened by this behavior and his acts of physical violence."

She also recalled an alleged incident from June 2022, claiming their child witnessed his reported outburst.

"Sean became irritated that our son woke up sick in the middle of the night. He screamed at me (in front of Nash) to go get Nash's 'f------medicine,' and then aggressively punched the wall in Nash's bedroom and then punched our bedroom door. (Nash witnessed this and was scared and grabbing on to me)," Rhoda alleged. "Sean then followed me to the kitchen, and as I was trying to get Nash's medicine, he ripped the cabinet door open -- slamming my finger between the open cabinet and the wall. I was petrified of Sean and his physical and aggressive behavior."

Avery's ex claimed that he went after their child the following month. She alleged the NHL star "body slammed Nash on his changing table," claiming that their son was "so afraid" that "he cried uncontrollably and couldn't catch his breath."

"Sean has screamed at Nash," Rhonda alleged. "Sean has purposefully endangered Nash by not putting him in his car seat properly; driving erratically; putting Nash in the front seat (without a car seat); smoking marijuana and then immediately driving with him; leaving his marijuana and cigarettes on the ground for Nash to access."

According to the model, Avery "admitted to me he was addicted to oxycontin, and he blamed his addiction as the reason for all of his 'bad behavior.'" His past also included an arrest for criminal possession of a controlled substance in 2015.

Rhonda said when she told Avery she was filing for divorce, he allegedly threatened to "kill himself" before later warning her that he would "destroy" her.
