Sean Avery's Ex-Wife Makes Very Serious Allegations Against Him in Court

Despite the fact that Sean Avery hasn't played in the NHL for over a decade, he remains a well-known name among fans. Avery was a controversial player on and off the ice, and he didn't slow down once he retired, turning to podcasts and social media to voice brash opinions. Now, he's facing some very serious allegations from his ex-wife who recently asked a court to extend a restraining order she has against Avery for her and their three year old son. That request was granted.

According to court documents obtained by ETonline.com, Hilary Rhoda is accusing Avery of entering her house and getting in bed with her twice without consent following their divorce in 2022.

"He grabbed me by the arms and shook me, twice. I was very scared for my safety and called the police."

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


"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." - Court Documents.

Rhoda recalled an incident she said happened in June of 2022 involving their three-year-old son.

"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). 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."

The 36-year-old model also claimed that Avery "body slammed Nash on his changing table," and would drive around in his car without putting the youngster in a car seat properly, while also alleging that Avery would smoke cannabis before driving. Rhoda added that Avery allegedly admitted to her that he was addicted to Oxycontin and said the addiction was the cause of much of his behaviour.

Neither Avery or Rhoda's lawyers would respond to ET's request for comments. None of the allegations has been tested or proven in court.
