Royce Reed may be criticized for her decision to ask Dwight Howard to pay legal fees accrued in her and the NBA player’s custody battle, but she’s not going down in silence. The reality star recently took to Instagram to defend herself after TMZ broke the story and critics began to talk.

“Mom Law: My son deserves the best & rather than take food out his mouth, the roof from over his head, an education, extracurricular activities, great Birthdays & Christmases, & the smile off his face, I WILL file necessary motions. Judge that if u live in a Glass House.” The actress further stated, “We will never struggle… Period! Braylon will always have the best! That’s what I fight for.”

Reed has acquired $40,000 in legal fees since Dwight motioned to gain sole custody of their son Braylon in 2010. The former ‘Basketball Wives’ star is expected to have over $100,000 in legal debt at the custody battle’s ending. Dwight has not commented on whether he will or will not pay Reed’s expenses.

    Sounds like he doesn’t want to pay child support to a woman whom he felt was a jump-off. Too bad so sad as he should’ve thought of that prior to knocking her up. She would be a fool not to ask that he pay her legal fees. He can certainly afford it.

  • Oxford November 28, 2012 at 3:50 pm

    As the defendant Royce Reed has a right to ask Dwight Howard to pay her legal fees. Howard as the plaintiff initiated the lawsuit by suing Reed for sole custody of Braylon.

    Why Howard would sue for custody of Braylon when he has other children (he isn’t suing their mothers), reeks of spite and unpure motive (thanks Ms. Sherley).

    Reed has a right to ask Howard to pay her legal fees. He started the lawsuit and Reed should not have to take “food out of Braylon’s mouth… to pay for something that Howard started.

    • Sherley November 28, 2012 at 5:42 pm

      You are welcome, sweetie, but what I say? :)

      • Oxford November 28, 2012 at 8:50 pm

        Ms. Sherley, you used the term “unpure motives” (I liked the way it sounded) when speaking about Adrienne Bosh’s decision to put Trinity’s birthday party on the internet.

        • Sherley November 28, 2012 at 10:25 pm

          Oh yeah. Glad you like it. :)

  • M'sgirl November 28, 2012 at 3:36 pm

    So is he also trying to get custody of the rest of his kids? Does he have joint custody with the other baby mothers?

  • theyknow November 28, 2012 at 3:12 pm

    I dont know much on their story so I wont comment but he is a cute little boy!

  • Court November 28, 2012 at 1:37 pm

    In the real world when parents go to court over custody issues, each parent has to pay their OWN fees. So why should it be different now?

    • MsLaw November 30, 2012 at 11:00 am

      Exactly. She can sue for the cost but reality is she is liable for the payments until a judgement states otherwise.

  • mel2 November 28, 2012 at 1:05 pm

    When will the bickering and battling end with these disgruntled parents! It’s sad.

  • Misunderstood November 28, 2012 at 1:05 pm

    Dwight’s just being a jerk PERIOD! He has 5 other kids, if he’s not fighting for sole custody of them then he needs to leave Braylon to his mom. It’s obivious that’s he’s not going to get sole custody so he should have to pay since he’s the cause of all this mess!

    • Deshay November 29, 2012 at 2:06 am

      Wow! I didn’t know he had other kids.

      • EVELINA RAE November 29, 2012 at 8:29 am

          LMAO!! “stash of kids”….classic,I’m going to put that in heavy rotation. Ladies two words>>>>”background check”. and if you go out in the rain without a “raincoat’ nine months later your gon be broke!!! His bad!!!

  • anon November 28, 2012 at 12:23 pm

    Yes, children do deserve the best from BOTH parents. So I agree there.

    I do not know the specifics of this case, but I will say this: Some of these celebrity men crack me up. They are so fast to spend and brag about strip clubs, women, cars (that they dont even have a chance to enjoy because theyre working!!!), multiple houses and poppin bottles, BUT the minute its time for them step up and be a father and provider, there is always an issue. Then you let someone else to tell you when and how much to pay for your child. I am so tired of this crap and its not just black men and its not just celebrities.

  • GraciouslyMe November 28, 2012 at 11:50 am

    Last I checked this man made 19.54 million USD in 2012. $100k shouldn’t break him. Wow, be careful with whom you take to bed…they could be in your life for a lifetime.

  • BrownSugar November 28, 2012 at 11:42 am

    Seriously! They can easily solve this by JOINT CUSTODY. He’s not a toy to be fought over! Royce has TOOO many men in & out her door around this child. I still think that pic she took of her son in bed asleep w/ her “current” man at the time is reason enough to question her ability to parent this child. Need to stop filling these lawyers pockets up and learn to raise their child TOGETHER, the same way they laid down & made him.

  • yeah i said it November 28, 2012 at 11:38 am

    I dont understand why these men with money feel they can just up and snatch a child from a loving parent who is able to provide stability in the childs life. These men are constantly on the road and they honestly feel that is better for the child? Braylon comes off well adjusted and happy. why mess that up? It doesn’t matter who slept with who and who didn’t protect themselves, all that mess is the pass!! Its not a fair fight if her team isn’t as great as Dwights’, plain and simple!

  • Sherley November 28, 2012 at 11:37 am

    I’m with Royce, her son does deserve the best & that means from btoh parents as well. Dwight shouldn’t be the only one providing Braylon the best.

    Men trying to get that sole custody aren’t they? Maybe that will show these women getting knocked up by an athlete\actor isn’t what it use to be.

  • Trisha (the original one) November 28, 2012 at 10:57 am

    I don’t think he should have to pay her fees. Maybe he wouldn’t file for full custody if she don’t have her son around every new athlete she’s sleeping with. Girls think they hit the jackpot getting knocked up by these athletes/rappers & think they gonna live a carefree life now that they getting a 18 yr paycheck, but these men are getting hip to their ways & making their life difficult smh

    • Iridescent Me. November 28, 2012 at 11:11 am

      Why is it that people always point the finger at the woman? He is to blame too. He slept with her. It takes two. He also has women around Braylon. Dwight is no saint. Trust!

      • Trisha (the original one) November 28, 2012 at 11:21 am

        But at the end of the day, the woman decides on her body. Ok, dummy didn’t use a condom, but she couldn’t make sure he put one on, or be on birth control, or the plan B pill? We have control over our bodies. Reason why a lot of people point at the woman. Being that Royce has a record of dating a new man every other month & a good portion being athletes, she fits into the groupie category. Dwight takes fault in this too, b/c he should have been smarter

    • Sherley November 28, 2012 at 11:43 am

      I didn’t have my son around each guy I dated unless it became serious. However, just because Royce has her son aroound the men he dates does not make her a bad mother, person, nor reason for Dwight to get sole custody. Now if she has him witnessing her sexcapades then yes. But being around different men isn’t any different than having several male or female friends. I use to see it the way you do, but now I introduce my guy friends as I do my girlfriends, until it become serious. If it doesn’t, I explain it just as I would explain a female friend no longer being a friend. My son doesn’t see me do anything different with my girlfriends than I do with my male friends, meaning I keep the sexcapades hidden.

      • EVELINA RAE November 29, 2012 at 8:40 am

        I just started dating again after my children’s Father and I officially broke up earlier this year. I won’t be introducing my kids to anyone I might want to get serious with. Not even as a friend. My daughter (almost 6) is too smart for “this is Mommy’s friend Bob. Even on a phone call, which I didn’t know she was around, my daughter can book it’s a male…”is that Daddy” with a confused look. I guess I change my mannerism. My son (2 1/2) gets real awkward around my actual male friends that I’ve know for years…I think he’ll have a hard time with this more than my daughter.

  • Iridescent Me. November 28, 2012 at 10:39 am

    So, that’s how they make Big Wheels now? Lol. I had the Smurf one, but it didn’t look like that. On a serious note, I hope that Royce and Dwight can work this out for the sake of Braylon.

    • Iridescent Me. November 28, 2012 at 10:40 am

      That’s a lot of money too.

    • Standing alone ... November 28, 2012 at 2:37 pm

      That Big Wheel is actually very “old school”. I had one back in 1977 when I was 7 years old. It is called the Green Machine. They just slightly (very) updated it :-)
