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.”

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.”

Music’s most amazing night went down Sunday at the Microsoft Theater in L.A. and we have to say the night was all about the ladies!

That’s right the 45th American Music Awards had some major moments and some major girl power starting with Pink and Kelly Clarkson.

The duo got the show started singing R.E.M.’s “Everybody Hurts”, but it was their solo performances that had fans going nuts.

Kelly Clarkson returned to the stage and had everyone on their feet with a medley of her classic tracks and new single “Love So Soft.”

While Pink took her career to new heights leaping off the side of a building while performing her hit single “Beautiful Trauma.”

Christina Aguilera, paid tribute to Whitney Houston with a commemorative performance for the 25th anniversary of The Bodyguard.
