Royce Reed Accuses Dwight Howard of Child Abuse
Former reality TV star, Royce Reed has made some startling accusations against the father of her child, NBA star Dwight Howard. Reed claims Howard beat their six year old son Braylon with a belt and left bruises and abrasions!
Royce went to child services in Orlando, Florida to report the abuse, then took Braylon to a medical center to be evaluated.
Surprisingly, Dwight confessed to hitting his son with a belt, but says it was standard discipline that he also experienced growing up. He adamantly denied abusing his son. According to TMZ, in response to Reed’s claims, Howard’s lawyer filed legal docs claiming he never caused marks, bruises, welts or injuries requiring medical treatment.
Children’s Services sided with Dwight and closed out the case after determining no serious injuries took place. But, that’s not all. Howard has now filed for full custody of his son citing that Royce is an unfit parent who gives their child psychotropic drugs just so she can have a “chemical babysitter.”
Howard’s rep tells TMZ, “It is troubling to see a mother use her son as a pawn against his father,” and that Dwight will do “whatever is necessary to protect [the child’s] welfare and best interests.”
Meanwhile, the former Basketball Wives star took to Instagram and revealed who she felt about the allegations against her. Click over to the next page to see Reed’s post.
