Ex-Lakers Star Trevor Ariza Testifies In Restraining Order Battle With Estranged Wife, Court Denies Custody Plea
By Ryan Naumann,
Ex-NBA star Trevor Ariza appeared in court this week pleading for time with his two kids — weeks after a judge granted his estranged wife a restraining order and awarded her sole custody, RadarOnline.com has learned.
According to court documents obtained by RadarOnline.com, Trevor and his ex- Bree Anderson faced off on Thursday in a Los Angeles Superior courtroom.
As RadarOnline.com first reported, last year, Bree filed for divorce from Trevor after four years of marriage. The exes share two minor children.
Bree detailed an alleged incident in August 2021 where Trevor allegedly became “very angry” after she refused to turn over her cell phone. She claims he threw her on the bed and started choking her.
She said Trevor punched her with a closed fist multiple times. The filing noted an alleged incident on February 17, 2020, where Trevor allegedly choked her until she passed out. “He immediately grabbed me by the throat and started choking me until I was unconscious,” she wrote.
Trevor filed his own petition for a restraining order but his stay-away order request was denied.
At the hearing this week, the court was scheduled to hear arguments on whether to make the restraining order permanent. However, the judge pushed the hearing on that topic to May.
Prior to meeting in court, Trevor said he wanted the restraining order to be amended to allow him time with his children. He said it was to ensure the “children’s best interests are served by maintaining their continuing and frequent contact with their Father pending the resolution of” the restraining order drama.
According to the court order, obtained by RadarOnline.com, the judge did allow Trevor to take the stand on the issue of custody. However, he denied the request for custody but did order the ex-NBA star can have, “FaceTime calls with the minor children at times to be arranged by the parties.”
