Sean Avery reportedly facing child abuse allegations




Former NHL forward turned media darling Sean Avery is facing some very serious allegations from estranged wife Hilary Rhoda.

The 36 year old Rhoda filed for divorce from Avery (43) last July and took out a temporary restraining order against him which prohibits him from contacting her or their 3 year old son Nash.

ET Canada reports that Rhoda has accused Avery of domestic abuse and child abuse.

From ET Canada:

Rhoda began by detailing an alleged September 2022 incident when Avery was arrested for domestic battery. She alleges 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."

Since then, Rhoda claimed that Avery had been walking past her house "several times a day."

"I am scared of Sean," the docs read, "and feel threatened by this behavior and his acts of physical violence."

Rhoda additionally alleged, "Sean also yells, swears, and name-calls on a constant basis. He follows me, trying to get me to engage. He has engaged in many instances of physical abuse against me and against third parties. Sean has also been physically and emotionally abusive to our son, Nash."

As for the latter allegation, Rhoda detailed an incident that she claims happened in June 2022.

"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**king 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 claims. "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."

She additionally alleged that, the next month, Avery "body slammed Nash on his changing table," which she claimed left the toddler "so afraid" that "he cried uncontrollably and couldn't catch his breath."

"Sean has screamed at Nash," she 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."

Both Avery's and Rhoda's lawyers have refused to comment on ET Canada's report.
