Home Reality Stars and their Kids ROYCE REED: ‘MY SON DESERVES THE BEST’


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.

  2. Undeniably believe that which you said. Your favourite justification
    seemed to be on the internet the easiest factor to keep in mind of.
    I say to you, I definitely get irked even as people consider concerns that they just don’t recognize about.
    You managed to hit the nail upon the highest and outlined out the entire thing with no need
    side-effects , people could take a signal.

  3. Are you considering going to Mexico for more affordable bunk beds
    in the dental industry. Gradually phase out
    the bottle completely and find other ways to comfort your baby as he falls asleep.
    Certain, it is clear that your every day dentist
    appointment for routine or preventive bunk beds is not made more affordable.

    California’s budget for 2013 includes millions of dollars for bunk beds for the elderly is a difficulty in proving oral care. Opt for a toothbrush with soft bristles.

    for others, obviously with no material or monetary rewarded.

  7. Thank you for the auspicious writeup. It actually
    used to be a amusement account it. Glance complex to far delivered
    agreeable from you! However, how could we keep in touch?

  8. Aw, this was a very good post. Taking the time and actual effort to make a very good article… but what can I say… I procrastinate a lot and don’t seem to get nearly anything done.

  9. Hello, i believe that i noticed you visited my web site thus i came to go back the desire?
    .I’m attempting to find issues to improve my site!I suppose its adequate to make use of some of your ideas!!

  10. Hey There. I found your blog using msn. This is a very well written
    article. I’ll make sure to bookmark it and return to read more of your useful info. Thanks for the post. I’ll definitely comeback.

  11. Hi there, I discovered your website by the use of
    Google whilst searching for a related matter, your website
    got here up, it seems to be great. I have bookmarked it in my google bookmarks.

    Hi there, just was alert to your weblog through Google, and located that it’s really informative. I’m going
    to watch out for brussels. I’ll be grateful in the event you continue this in future. A lot of people can be benefited from your writing. Cheers!

  12. What’s up to every body, it’s my first go to see of this blog; this web site consists
    of awesome and really fine stuff in support of readers.

  13. 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.

  14. Valuable info. Lucky me I discovered your website accidentally, and I am surprised why this accident did
    not came about earlier! I bookmarked it.

  15. 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.

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

  17. 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?

  18. 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!

      • Shoot…me either…dang!

        These athletes/celebrities keep surprising me with these mystery stash of children o_O))

        • 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!!!

  19. 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.

  20. 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.

  21. 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.

  22. 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!

  23. 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.

  24. 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

      • 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

    • 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.

      • 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.

  25. 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.
