Exclusive Information: Dwight Howard’s Child Abuse Case Reactivated

Published

on

HipHollywood can confirm that Cobb County PD in Georgia has re-opened NBA star Dwight Howard’s child abuse case and has launched a criminal investigation into whether or not the Houston Rockets player abused his 6-year-old son with a belt buckle.

Law enforcement tells HipHollywood that the case was “reactivated within the last 48 hours based on the information they received.” We are told that CCPD is properly moving forward with the ongoing investigation.

As previously reported, Howard’s baby’s mother, former Basketball Wives star, Royce Reed, filed a complaint in Orlando, Florida in August suggesting that the 28-year-old abused their son Braylon, causing marks, bruises, welts. Although Howard admitted to disciplining his son with a belt, the Florida Department of Children and Families closed the case because there was not enough evidence for “formal action.”

But in new reports, the alleged incident actually took place in Georgia. According to TMZ, Cobb County detectives saw their story and re-launchned an investigation after reading that doctors did indeed find that Howard committed child abuse. “People who were not so forthcoming before today [Monday] have been,” a source tells the news outlet.

Reps for Reed tell HipHollywood that they have “no statement” and that the former reality star is not “legally able to comment at the time.”

Tamar Braxton Insists Divorce Isn’t A PR Stunt: I Think That’s Disgusting

Published

on

Tamar Braxton is adamant that her divorce from husband Vince Herbert is not a ratings ploy for her WE tv reality show Tamar & Vince. The Braxton Family Values star stopped by The View on Friday, February 23 and addressed rumors that the split is just a plot line.

“I wish I could say that a lot of times it’s made up, just so I can hide behind the truth,” she said. “But in this situation, I absolutely have no reason to lie about my marriage or the things that are happening in my marriage for ratings. I think that’s disgusting and I would never sell my soul to the devil like that.”

“I have a regular marriage, and in regular marriages, like everybody else, things happen,” she continued. “In my marriage, it was just to a point where I felt like divorce was the only option that I had left. I definitely filed for divorce — that’s not a lie.”

Braxton, 40, and Herbert, 45, share a 4-year-old son, Logan Vincent — and she says he’s their main priority.

“I think the bigger picture of everything is that we have a responsibility to my amazing 4-year-old son, to raise him in the most comfortable, amazing, loving, secure household that we can,” she said, adding, “That’s why we don’t live together.”

Braxton — who was joined by Herbert on air — also addressed the rumor that Herbert had impregnated another woman. (Last month, in a since-deleted Instagram post, Braxton claimed an unidentified woman told her that “Vincent Herbert is having a baby,” and that Herbert had then called Braxton “begging and lying” despite a “protection order.”)

“Here is the thing about people being in your business: keep people out your business,” said Braxton. “And let me just address the meltdown that I had on Instagram. That was my fault that I put myself in a position where I opened up the floor for people to give their opinions on my marriage, and I have to take responsibility for that.”

Herbert himself insisted the allegation was “absolutely” false.

“And all the other allegations are just not true — I’m just not that kind of person,” he said. “I love this lady with all my heart, I love my family with all my heart, and I will never stop fighting for my family and trying to make it be great.”

“Vince and I have been through a lot, and the reason that I filed for divorce was not because of those rumors,” added Braxton. “I filed for divorce because we work together, he’s my baby father, we’re together each and every single day, we’re attached at the hip and it just got to be too much. We just couldn’t figure out how to figure it out.”

As for a possible reconciliation? While Herbert is on board — “absolutely,” he said — Braxton isn’t so sure.

“It’s okay not to know,” she said. “We still work together now. We do work together well, so that’s one thing that I feel like we can definitely sustain and we’ve always been able to sustain, as well as our connection and our responsibility to being parents to Logan.”
