Matthew Rondeau recently made headlines, but for all the wrong reasons. Matthew was thrown into controversy after he was involved in an physical altercation at Shanna Moakler’s House.

Page Six reports that Matthew Rondeau allegedly attacked a transgender woman at Shanna Moakler’s Los Angeles home while she was away filming “Celebrity Big Brother.” The incident happened in early February, when Elissa Lorenn allegedly went to Moakler’s house with her friend Shayan to hang out with Rondeau.

Lorenn alleged when they arrived, they found Rondeau in bad shape as he’d just learned Moakler ,whom he’s been on-and-off again relationship since 2020 had allegedly cheated on him. Lorenn told the outlet, “He had taken a knife and ripped through her paintings.”

“When I first got there he didn’t seem that f–ked up, but as the night progressed I was like, ‘Oh, this is like a lot.’”


According to Lorenn, the group made their way to the hot tub and were “having a few drinks.” Soon after, the 29-year-old, who was naked, allegedly grew “stern and very kind of serious.” Lorenn further said, “He walked up to me in the hot tub … and grabbed my face and started making out with me.”

“The night continues to go on, and he’s getting more and more sexual with not even just me but even with Shayan,” 

Both Lorenn and Shayan brushed Rondeau’s behavior off as nothing more than an annoyance. However, later in the evening Lorenn claimed when she went inside to get a charger because her phone had died and Rondeau followed her inside and then had a personality “switch.”

“He pushes me against the wall and slaps me across the face very hard, and then puts his hands around my neck to choke me. I say ‘choke’ in the sense of low-key it was like a strangle.”

Lorenn claimed she woke up the next morning and couldn’t move her neck and had bruises on her neck and shoulders. She added, “Even my face was swollen because of how hard he hit me, He’s like a big man. I may be trans, but I’m certainly not that big. He’s a big man.”

Once Lorenn’s phone turned back on she called a car and fled Moakler’s house. When she woke up and saw her bruises, she explained she chose not to go to the police because of her previous experiences as a trans woman. She also didn’t file a police report about the alleged incident.

Matthew has declined to comment on the allegations against him. Moakler’s camp has yet to return Page Six’s request for comment. Stay tuned to Thirsty for future updates.
