NBA Star Dwight Howard Accused of Beating 6-Year-Old Son with Belt Buckle

November 18, 2014 by The ReadyWriter


Royce_DwightFormer reality TV star Royce Reed (pictured right), is accusing her baby daddy, NBA player Dwight Howard of beating their 6-year old son, Braylon with a belt buckle. The Cobb County Police Department (where Howard resides off-season), is investigating the accusations.

According to TMZ, the Dept. of Children and Family Services in Florida (DFS) determined there wasn’t enough evidence of child abuse to go forward, but it turns out the incident occurred in Georgia. Howard admits he hit his kid with a belt, but says he didn’t know it was wrong because he was hit as a kid.

Howard’s baby mama Royce Reed is “shopping her baseless allegations” to Georgia authorities although Florida’s Dept. of Children and Family Services found her claims had “no merit.” For the record, DFS found the allegations credible, but concluded they did not meet the standard of proof required for formal action. However, Royce is adamantly pushing the issue.

Dwight in turn, has filed for full parental custody, siting that Royce uses medicinal child care for their son in order to control him, keep him calm and to take naps.  

In the meantime, a petition started circulating by concerned citizens urging the Rockets to suspend Howard from the team.

    Royce was unknown before she appeared on and got fired from BBW. Everybody who knows her, knows her elevator does not go all the way to the top. She’s needy, clingy, lonely, vindictive and desperate for attention. This is her sad pitiful way of trying to remain in the spot light.
