Pelicans big man Jaxson Hayes is being sued by his Instagram model ex-girlfriend Sofia Jamora.  She claims in the lawsuit that she was physically abused by the former first-round pick multiple times.

From TMZ Sports:

According to the lawsuit, obtained by TMZ, Jamora claims they started dating in October 2020 and the NBA stud first got violent with her on Valentine's Day 2021, violently abusing her in a Dallas hotel room.

In the docs, Jamora claims she traveled with Jaxson for his NBA game and shared a hotel room, and when he returned to the room he flipped out when she joked about a lack of Valentine's Day flowers. She claims he cussed her out, hit her with a suitcase he tossed across the room, physically prevented her from leaving the room and broke down a bathroom door to rip her phone out of her hand.

After that incident Hayes, according to the lawsuit, got physical with Jamora again.

According to the docs, Jamora claims Jaxson, his two dogs and his cousin were staying at her Los Angeles home on July 27, 2021 when he got violent again.

In the suit, Jamora claims she left Jaxson at the home during the day while she was at a photoshoot and came home to find her dog severely injured, blaming the bite wounds on Jaxson's much bigger dogs. She says Jaxson was "passed out from a drug-induced stupor" when she got home, and while he was asleep she put his dogs in crates.

In the docs, Jamora claims Jaxson eventually woke her up at midnight and asked what happened to the dogs before flying off the handle. She says they got into a verbal argument, which escalated into Jaxson allegedly threatening for his cousin to rape her.

Things continued to escalate that night and Hayes was eventually arrested on resisting arrest and false imprisonment charges.  He recently entered a no-contest plea to those charges.

I think this is pretty obvious, if Hayes did what he's being accused of then he should be held responsible.
