Royce Reed: Dwight Howard's ex girlfriend and the mother of his illegitimate son

UPDATE: Dwight Howard actually ended up suing Royce Reed for $9.2 million, $500 for every time that remarks that Royce made, termed "Dwight Bashing", were viewed online. We know she appeared on VH1's Basketball Wives, but we're guessing she didn't make nearly that much money...

Dwight Howard's ex girlfriend, and mother of his child, Royce Reed was a dancer for the Magic during the 05-06 season when the two met. While it violated the sometimes-written, sometimes-unwritten code of player/cheerleader relationships, it clearly advanced beyond casual dating.

Howard is highly religious as evidenced by many interviews and quotes. He once said he wanted to put a cross into the NBA logo. Another time, he acknowledged writing the following phrase on the wall over his bed while in high school:

"It shall and will come to pass that the NBA will be runned by the standards of God."
And no, the word 'runned' is not a typo by Playerwives.

Now despite Dwight's religious fanaticism, he and Reed had a child, Braylon Joshua Robert Howard, out of wedlock in November, 2007.

No word on how Dwight justifies that from the biblical perspective.

Royce Reed's mother issued the following statement after the birth of their child:

"Royce and Dwight are very happy. They are very good friends. How close they are, well, you'd have to talk to them. I'm just the grandma. It was not something that was planned. It was a beautiful surprise, though."

This happiness didn't last long as Reed ended up taking Howard to court in April, 2008 for child support. No word on how Dwight justifies failing to pay child support from the biblical perspective either.

    They did the right thing Biblically. "Love is patience love is kind.... in keeps no record of wrong." By loving the life a child and supporting and caring for the mother and the child that IS WWJD. What Jesus would do. He wouldnt have had a child out of wedlock of course, but He is Christ He IS perfect we are not. Much love to Royce & Dwight and Braylon :) Experience the Extraordinary Everyday!

    -Peace & Blessings manifest with every lesson learned.

    I don't think that God will hold anything against Dwight or Royce for a child being born out of wedlock. All sins are forgiven because he knowns that we are not perfect. I love Dwight, he's a great player with room to grow. In about two years he's going to be a force to be reckon with. The guy is good. God bless Dwight, Royce and their child.

    Royce don't pay the hater no mind. u love your child that all that matters. and ur a dancer have fun u only live once. but i would't have touch a women butt myself.

  10. victoria

    he could have done a whole lot better! im sooo dissapointed!

  11. Rochelle Blakely

    He could have done better according to who's standards? She's a beautiful and talented young woman and I'm sure that she is doing much better than you are. The important thing is that the child is the first priority and I am sure that Royce and Dwight will prioritize their child just as everyone else does who love their children. Don't be disappointed because we were all created by God and he is the only person who deserves the right of disappointment. God Bless.

    God never makes mistakes but the Orlando coach does by letting Howard take any shots farther than 5 feet from the goal---If that was enforced the magic would win 15% more games

  17. meyani

    Amen bigballer. People are so easily fooled. Yes Royce is a tramp. A lot of the NBA whores are. Theyll do anything for that money... including unprotected sex with any one of them just to get a child out of it hopefully. How sad. Women. Wake the fuqk up!!!!! Geesh! Make your own damn money!!!!!!

  18. kim

    how can you say the kid is ugly? look in the mirror... only an ugly person can be so UGLY to an innocent, precious child!

    "Have a baby by me and be a millionaire"

    $18,000 per month X 12 X 21 years old =4,536,000 the only sad thing is that kid will never see it from the Mom's pocket. Child support should be based on the custodial parents projected income it would exposed the goldiggers when the child goes to Daddy's house compared to Mommy's house.
