Shanna Moakler and her boyfriend Matthew Rondeau got an impromptu visit from the LAPD on Thursday afternoon after someone called 911 to report a “domestic disturbance.” The 911 call was said to be made by Moakler’s daughter who wasn’t at the house at the time. She told the operator that her mom’s boyfriend was yelling at her and there was a disturbance going on at the house.
Domestic Disturbance or a False Alarm?
When police arrived at Moakler’s San Ferrando Valley home, they said that both Moakler, 47, and Rondeau, 30, answered the door wearing “skimpy clothes.” The couple was separated and both had the same story that there was no fight or disturbance happening at the house. Police checked the home and saw nothing broken and saw no marks on either of their bodies. TMZ reported that neither of Moakler’s daughters was present and the police believe that this was just “a bad game of telephone.” The former Playboy model is mom to Landon, 18, and daughter Alabama, 16, with ex-husband Travis Barker and daughter Atiana, 23, with ex Oscar De La Hoya.
Just hours after the police visit, the two were spotted spending time together at Dave & Buster’s having fun. “Everything is great. We aren’t sure why anyone was called,” Moakler told People via a representative. “We would like to be left alone so we can live our lives in peace and move forward positively and peacefully. Our personal life is no longer up for public entertainment.”
Last Time Around Wasn’t a False Alarm
While this incident may have just been a false alarm, this isn’t the first time the police have been called. Back in February, Rondeau was taken into custody after he was arrested for felony domestic violence following an altercation with Moakler. While celebrating the “Celebrity Big Brother” finale, the couple got into a fight triggered by him accusing her of cheating and things escalated quickly. An insider told US Weekly, “She left their home to give him space and came back in the morning, which is when they got into another fight.” This wasn’t the first time the two have fought, but according to the insider, “this one just got out of control.” “They definitely have a toxic relationship and go through this toxic cycle of breaking up and getting back together. Friends think she deserves better,” the insider continued.
Shortly after that incident occurred and Rondeau was arrested, Moakler’s daughter told followers on Instagram that her mom was OK. She wrote on an Instagram story, “I’m not sure what happened in her live I’m in contact with her and she is OK. That man needs serious help!”
They Have an On Again/Off Again Relationship
In May, Moakler spoke to Us Weekly and said the two are not back together after a photo she posted hinted otherwise. “I know my family just wants to see me happy. I know they know both Matthew and I are doing the work to heal and be better people,” she said. She went on to explain that she hopes to be able to reunite with Rondeau but said they weren’t officially back together at the moment.
Pleading Not Guilty to Previous Charges
Earlier this week, Rondeau pleaded not guilty to domestic violence charges from the February altercation involving Moakler. The Los Angeles City Attorney charged Rondeau with misdemeanor domestic violence, battery, and vandalism according to court documents. He pleaded not guilty to all charges. His pretrial hearing is scheduled for Monday. The two are back together and Moakler told TMZ she will not be pressing charges. “I’m hoping the city attorney respects my wishes and drops everything as well. I will be supporting Matthew 100 percent,” she said. “This has disrupted our lives enough. We have both learned from this experience we never wish to have been public, and we would like to move forward in a positive and peaceful manner.”
