‘Basketball Wives’ Star Royce Reed Addresses Being Called Bitter Amid Dwight Howard Drama

Royce’s co-parenting relationship with Dwight has been full of drama.

Basketball Wives” star Royce Reed may no longer be on the show, but she has still been in the headlines. This is due to the contentious co-parenting relationship she has with Dwight Howard. For years now, Royce has accused Dwight of not being in their son’s life.

Dwight has seemingly responded to this by dragging Royce to court. It was also reported that he filed for a gag order on Royce as well. Regardless, Royce continues to speak her mind about her ex. So after he won his first NBA championship, Royce had some things to get off her chest. This of course was the case after Dwight’s text message conversation with his fiancée Te’a Cooper accidentally went viral. The athlete was on Instagram Live celebrating when his phone then went to the text messages. In the texts, Te’a was seemingly asking Dwight if there was any truth to a rumor.

Royce called out Te’a for ruining Dwight’s big moment and the ladies had a little back and forth on social media. And when people began to be critical of Royce, she vented about her long-standing issues with Dwight as a father.

Another baby momma had something to say.

Interestingly enough, now another one of Dwight’s exes has called him out.

On a message posted to Instagram, she wrote, “Imagine watching the love of your life or someone you care/cared about become a terrible parent, ignore their child’s emotional needs for the sake of ego and pride and literally leave their other child to be taken care of by a babysitter for, say two months. Imagine they ignore their children and neglect speaking to them. Would you root for them if they won anything? Would you support that person publicly?”

After Dwight’s other baby momma’s message went viral, Royce responded. And she had something to say about being called bitter.

    I wish Royce would move on. She appears bitter because she’s still stuck in a holding pattern. God forbid if something happened to Dwight, then what?
    She needs to stop the negative talk to her son and be a strong Mother for him. Dwight doesn’t want to deal with the pettiness from her. Not saying it’s right for him not to be an active part in his son’s life (because no one should prevent that)but what did court resolve?
    The other child’s Mother needs to take several seats because this isn’t her fight.
    Honestly I think Royce is trying to remain relevant. Blaming Dwight for not getting work is a reach. Everyone saw how she acted on BW. How soon she forgot.

        I agree it appears Dwight Howard is not doing his part as a parent. But, neither is Royce. You can’t make a man be a father. You can make him pay child support and live your life without looking back. Unfortunately, she’s looking back and she has taught her son to look back too.

          His son is probably hurt on his own. He is 13 and you don’t know that she taught him to say that versus it being his own point of view. A 13 year old son, who’s father is an NBA player most likely wants his dad’s attention

      It’s easy for you to say when you don’t know what all she is going through. He probably does have connections that are affecting her ability to work.

      She said that the ngga ain’t doing shxt for the kids. Where is she bitter at? Y’all really ignore all of what’s said and then tell someone what the fxck they mean like you know. And you don’t.

    Royce not bitter mother so his other kids mom bitter and including his son. Dwight just not apart of his kids life like he should be I get why Royce is mad and it’s affecting her son. The other mom accused him of the same thing. I’m tired of people calling mothers bitter when the father not doing his part. I’m a mother of two kids high school and middle school. There father put females before them doesn’t pay child support. Buy the females kids he’s with at the time stuff for Christmas bdays etc. My kids barely get a phone calls from him. So I’m bitter if I post it huh. I don’t post nothing on fb or any social media this being going on since they were born. He told me if I give him sex he do more well that’s not happening. I worked bust my ass off to put myself through college and graduate from college. I’m engaged to a wonderful man. My man showed me the definition of a real man my kids love him even though their not his kids he never treated them different. Moral of the story not ever mother bitter just tried of narrative she’s bitter at etc. Only people knows the truth God the mother father soon the kids knows what’s going on. Sometimes the mother doesn’t have to say nothing the kids soon she what’s going on.

    A bitter woman keeps the child from the father. These woman want him involved as a father. This n-gga ain’t sh-t for avoiding his children.

    Two things can be true!!!!! Royce is bitter because regardless of what Dwight is not doing for or with her son wtf does she think broadcasting their personal business allover social media is going to accomplish??? Not a damn thing because she’s already did that before some years ago. She’s not hurting Dwight clearly because he still haven’t changed his deadbeat ways!!! The person it is hurting is their SON because he’s the one that will be bullied by classmates!!!! She needs to take responsibility for creating this situation in the first place. For one she has no business having a secret relationship with a player being she was a cheerleader for the team when the rules were clear from day one!!! Secondly having a baby for him when she didn’t even know him because she figured he was a come up🤷🏾‍♀️ It’s funny that she’s complaining about him stopping her from getting a job but she was all to happy to put her job in jeopardy to sneak around with him🤔 At some point just continue to raise your son, make sure he pays child support and move on with your life because you can’t make a deadbeat be a father if he doesn’t want to be. And the other babymomma is just plain stupid because her like Royce was looking for a come up because it’s no secret that Royce has blasted him in the past about his parenting and she still choose to lay up with him and have a baby😴 So I don’t want to hear from her period!!!!

      Wow what a case of mom/Royce hating. It’s making news because the guy is a Basketball Player and she is a social media star period. Yes, Royce has been in the media but so have some of his other ex’s. If he were doing his job as a father he wouldn’t be in the news.
