Rajon Rondo has often had critiques of his maturity lobbed in his direction. While some may argue that he turns it on and off whenever he feels like it on the court, anyone who challenges his maturity off the court would be way off base.
Rajon Rondo has been dating Ashley Bachelor since their time in college together. The two reportedly met and began dating at Kentucky in 2005, and have been together since. They have one child together, daughter Ryelle, born in 2008. Ashley is a hair stylist, who reportedly does all of Rondo’s hair work. The two were reportedly engaged in 2010, though in typical Rondo style, any story on how or when the proposal took place is shrouded in secrecy.
It’s pretty well known that Rondo struggled fitting in with the Celtics in the Big Three era off the court, and took to becoming very close friends with the only other young guy on the team, Kendrick Perkins. Perk and Rondo got incredibly close during their time as the only 20 somethings on the Green, which was evident when Rondo skipped Team USA tryouts in 2009 to be in Perk’s wedding. Likely because the guys were close, Ashley became close friends with Kendrick Perkins wife, Vanity Perkins. In recent years since Perk was dealt to Oklahoma City, Ashley has become friendly with other Celtics wives. Ashley has been involved in Celtics Wives charitable endeavors and become a fixture at their charitable events. She was most prominently running a shopping event at Saks in Boston to help raise funds for victims of the earthquake in Haiti.
