The messy custody battle between Royce Reed and Dwight Howard continues. Days after it was confirmed that Dwight is currently being investigated for child abuse regarding their son Braylon, now it’s been confirmed that Royce was investigated recently too.

Apparently Royce hit Braylon with a belt after he dropped the “f” bomb at school and teachers worried she may have gone too far.

TMZ writes:

The Florida Dept. of Children and Families (DCF) got a call in February from 6-year-old Braylon’s school, informing authorities the boy had been belted on the back of his neck and leg for using “potty words.”

According to docs, baby mama Royce Reed fessed up and said she did indeed belt the boy because he “dropped the f-bomb” in school. Authorities checked out the kid and there were no obvious marks … she told them she only hit him once with a child fabric belt. The case was closed out, but school officials spoke with Reed and accused her of using excessive force on the child.


Of course Royce is furious about the story leaking, and she posted the following to her Instagram account earlier today:

One of Dwight’s family members wasn’t happy with Royce’s post and apparently asked Royce to stop responding to everything on social media. Of course Royce responded:

  1. Royce needs to log her little a-s off Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, MySpace, Google + and any other piece of the web that can get her dumb a-s caught up. Her money ain’t long enough to be handing Dwight’s lawyer so much ammunition.

  2. I understand her frustration but she needs to take a cue from her friend Allison and fight the battle in the courtroom, not social media. She’s not playing it smart.

  3. And this is why I said from the very beginning I didn’t know who to believe in this situation. Royce ain’t no better than Dwight she accusing him of child abuse when she did the same thing. Let her a-s keep running her mouth on social media like a fool she is going to lose custody of her son that’s not mean that’s real.

    1. Right? I said that I always picked option c – no one, because she’s just as dirty as him. Only reason he’s in more hot water is because the belt buckle left bruises.

  4. Notice how Dwight never says anything on his Twitter/IG account. He pays his lawyer to do the job and sits back and collects his NBA checks. Royce is a fool.
