Trevor Ariza is hitting back at his estranged wife when he filed a restraining order of his own, days after she was granted her own restraining order.
Ariza asked the court to order Bree to stay 100 yards away from him and cease all communications. A judge previously ordered Ariza to not come near his ex.
Ariza said his estranged wife’s restraining order only allows him to see his kids for 4 hours a week with a supervisor. The couple shares an 11-year-old son Tristan and a 10-year-old daughter Taylor.
He claims the kids do not need protection from him, buy they need protection from their mother.
He also claimed that his estranged wife ripped a dreadlock out of his scalp after she flew into a jealous rage over his new girlfriend calling him.
“Bree grabbed me by my hair and violently ripped a dreadlock right out of my scalp. Bree almost entirely ripped a second dreadlock out of my scalp as well. This second dreadlock was left dangling from my scalp by a few hairs,” he writes.
He further added she tried to steer the car off the road, saying, “In a fit of jealously, Bree leaned toward to the driver’s seat and with her right hand forcefully pulled the steering wheel toward the passenger seat. Bree’s unexpected and dangerous action nearly caused me to lose complete control of my vehicle. My car abruptly veered over two lanes of traffic to the right.”
Ariza further pointed out he had to endure Bree yelling racial slurs at him in front of their children in addition to getting physical with him by throwing bottles at him and closed fist punching him in the arms and chest.
His filing also accuses his wife’s domestic violence order against him and described it as a tactic. “I genuinely interpret Bree’s application for a DVRO as an underhanded trial tactic employed to frustrate Tristan and Taylor’s ability to have a meaningful relationship with me and to force me into giving her more money and her attorneys more money.”
He went on to say, “I hope the court will see through Bree’s recent cruel and underhanded litigation tactic.”
The 2009 NBA Champion has played for ten NBA teams over his career.
