Rajon Rondo facing $1-million lawsuit for alleged parking lot incident in Los Angeles


Four-time NBA All-Star Rajon Rondo, now of the Atlanta Hawks (his seventh team in eight seasons) was hit with a lawsuit seeking over $1 million in damages, according to popular tabloid site TMZ.

The suit, filed by Toktam Jorshari, alleges Rondo shoved her during a dispute in the parking lot of his Los Angeles apartment complex on July 28th. Though his Lakers teammates were in Orlando at the time, Rondo was back in Los Angeles rehabbing an injured thumb. Jorshari claims Rondo parked his $300,000 Rolls Royce in a handicap spot (despite not having a valid placard) when the 34-year-old angrily confronted her for blocking his driver’s side door while unloading a table she had just bought.

Jorshari said she feared for her safety when Rondo’s COVID mask began to slip under his nose. The suit then alleges Rondo shoved Jorshari against her car, causing her sandal to fly off and drop one of her keys, which hit the ground with enough force to break into two pieces. After that, Jorshari claims Rondo’s girlfriend (who is also named in the suit) attacked her while on the ground, repeatedly striking her “head and upper body” with encouragement from the veteran point guard. Jorshari said some of the injuries she suffered resulted in “permanent disability.” She’s also seeking damages for “infliction of emotional distress and conspiracy.”

Rondo, who dished out seven assists while adding three points and three rebounds in his preseason debut Thursday night, has yet to publicly address the allegations.
