TMZ reported Johnson allegedly brought the two children she had with Bridges and tried to get into his rental home in an effort to speak to him. Court documents state Johnson showed up unannounced through a side gate in the backyard and demanded that the basketball star open the door.

Bridges reportedly told Johnson to stop as she hammered the hose nozzle into the door. After the unsuccessful break in, Johnson allegedly stole Bridges’ dog and left with their children.

Court documents also claim Johnson harassed Bridges on two other occasions, which he claimed caused him emotional distress and anxiety. Bridges said Johnson will not leave him alone.

Bridges was granted a restraining order against Johnson on Wednesday, TMZ reported. He told authorities he wasn’t allowed to talk to his estranged wife due to court orders after he was charged with domestic violence following an altercation in June in which an argument turned physical.

The 24-year-old Bridges is currently a free agent. He last played for the Charlotte Hornets in 2021.
