Dwight Howard’s Ex Wants Him To Pay For Custody Battle

Dwight Howard-Royce Reed

Dwight Howard is in a custody battle with his baby's mother, Royce Reed. She recently asked a judge to have Howard cover the legal fees she would incur during the proceedings. She states that the legal battle is unfair, because the basketball player can simply outspend her.

According to TMZ, Royce filed documents in Florida asking a judge to make Dwight cover her legal bills in order to ensure a fair case, since he is the one who filed for sole custody of their child. The documents also state that the professional athlete brings in over $1.3 million per month and if he did not provide the funds, it would not be a fair fight. She also claims that he can hire an army of lawyers while she would get buried in bills and eventually be forced to drop out of the proceedings.

Royce, according to the documents and her lawyer, has already racked up a $44,113.50 bill and is expected to tack on another $60,000 plus if she wants to continue with the case.

A judge has yet to rule on the request.

  • Hey Dwight- keep it in ur pants and you wont have a problem- what else is new - an NBA player havin kids and not willing to take the responsibility- marry the girl then plan a family- show some responsibility- KEEP IT IN UR PANTS!

  • Noah

    he's filing for sole custody, how is that not being willing to take responsibility for his kid?

  • Dennis you're the epitome of a dumb ass...read the darn story. He's fighting for sole custody idiot. What makes your comment even more despicable is that your supposedly a MAN making such a gender biased statement. As a single father I can't stand ranting male jerks like yourself that do nothing but hurt the cause of fathers trying to be fathers. You're the type of chump that tells women all men are jerks so that you can get sympathy p*ssy...because you're a p*ssy (sorry for my language). And yes I'm a single father, who incidentally just had to file for child support enforcement.
