Dwight’s text message conversation with Te’a caused controversy.

Royce Reed is back in the headlines again. The “Basketball Wives” star has been going back and forth on social media with Dwight Howard’s fiancée, WNBA player Te’a Cooper. Te’a currently plays for the Los Angeles Sparks.

After Dwight won his first-ever NBA championship, he took to social media to show off his celebration of the big moment.

While on Instagram Live, he accidentally switched his phone’s view over to a text message conversation he was having with Te’a.

In the text, Te’a was asking Dwight if a rumor was true. To no surprise, the clip went viral.

And Royce had something to say about it on Instagram Story.

Royce called out Te’a and Dwight.

She wrote, “D*mn…Imagine it being one of the happiest moment/days of your life and someone who’s supposed to be your sanity and celebrate with you comes at you with some childish DRAMA for all the world to see…how embarrassing 😳 ”


Some people criticized Royce and accused her of being bitter. So she hopped on Instagram to defend herself. And she accused Dwight of not seeing their son in months.

She wrote, “Y’all better stop praising ppl based off a screenshot of their lives on tv and Instagram posts. Better yet… imagine having to text a 3rd party to try and find out if this person plans on seeing their 2 kids that live here and that they haven’t seen since July or SPOKEN to since August before they leave the city and the response is “I don’t know, I gotta see what the team doin”. A multimillionaire who can catch any flight with a choice to spend a couple hours with children who want to think he’s their own personal Superman. A child who REALLY NEEDS HIM RIGHT NOW! But… I hold this little boy at night through tears and anger. ”

She added, “I comfort him. I raise him with love not through money. So anyone who has an issue with that F*CK YALL! Straight up! Braylon will always cause my lioness to come out! PERIOD! #mytherapistisgonnakillme”

Royce has more to say to Te’a.

While Dwight said nothing in response, Te’a made it clear she was unbothered on her Instagram Story. She posted a clip of her on a private jet.

Royce had more to say on her Instagram Story.

As for Te’a, she rapped a Drake lyric, “Tired of beefing with bums, you can’t even pay me enough to react.”

    Royce needs to grow up and stop all of the SHE-nanigans. She’s picking and needs to concentrate on her roll as a Mother. She can’t make Dwight do anything but financially support their children. Being in their lives is an unwritten rule that’s a choice to follow. Dwight doesn’t want to deal with her but there are ways around that but he may have to get a Judge to sign off on whatever arrangement made.

      Royce I hope you read this one day Don’t tun down behind him trying to make him be a good father A good man doesn’t have to be told to talk to and spend time with his children He will regret these actions because children don’t forget Keep it off social media it’s immature If this is the kind of person his girlfriend wants in her life so be it That’s none of your concern She should only be your concern if she’s spending time with the children Deal with your anger and pain in private Good Luck to you and the children 💗

        So if his girlfriend is a piece of sh-t for dealing with him, what does that make Royce who dealt with him first?

    So this wasn’t really about her son, it was about Dwight’s fiancee. I guess Royce was triggered when she saw the fiancee posted up with Dwight enjoying that championship win. Royce needs to let this go. It’s not worth the energy. Reaping and sowing is real. Let God fight your battles and move on.

        I get that you like Royce from Basketball Wives but you don’t get to make up your own facts. Royce came for Dwight’s fiancee first. Sis was literally minding her own business and celebrating her man’s first championship. And here comes Royce running to IG to talk about her and a situation that has nothing to do with her. Royce and Dwight have been broken up for how many years now? Royce needs to figure out why she’s so inclined to obsess over a man she hasn’t been with in many years. It’s pathetic at this point. She’s not a victim, she’s the problem starter. This man doesn’t even talk about her…EVER.

      Sounds like to me Dwight hasn’t grown up yet…
      And Te’a better read the room. If he is a deadbeat in his kids’ lives, then he will keep that same energy with you and yours, too.
      Any woman who is okay with a man she’s screwing not being a father in their kids’ lives and is willing to buy into the “Baby Mama Drama” foolishness deserves every bit if heartbreak coming to her.
      No woman or man worth their salt should be okay with people procreation then abandoning their kids.
      All that glitters isn’t gold, and kuds grow up to either avoid like the plague or cyclically will repeat their absentee parent’s traits.
      Congrats on the Championship, Dwight, but be a man for once. You HAVE WAY TOO MUCH IN ACCESS AND RESOURCES TO BE A WHOLE DEADBEAT OUT HERE.

        If you’re going to pull the “she should have known better” card with Dwight’s fiancee, then you have to also apply that same logic with Royce. It usually doesn’t end well when single women get in relationships and procreate with athletes. Royce did so anyway and it blew up in her face. So why are you only requiring that Dwight’s fiancee have more wisdom? She’s not the one on IG throwing temper tantrums years after a breakup…that’s Royce. And she’s the only one of Dwight’s exes that does this foolishness. She needs to move on. I can’t even imagine being this mad about a failed relationship that ended YEARS AGO.

    Royce’s issue should be with Dwight, not his fiancee.

    The sad thing is I knew Royce was going to say something after the Lakers won smdh. I wish these adults would all get it together. Put the kids first and just do what’s right.

    Royse loves to hear herself talk. Anyone could clearly see that when she was on the basketball wives. She’s a sh-t starter its sad to say. There is a time and place for everything and sometimes telling people what you think isn’t always the best thing. But the bad thing about her is that she doesn’t tell people what she thinks in there face until she knows she has someone to protect her but. Learn how to be appropriate your a mother stop talking crap with the other women clearly she’s unhappy that she’s not number 1 in his life anymore. Being an adult means sometimes you just need to look the other way. What are you teaching your child? She truly needs to grow up…

        Though I’m not a fan of either one..I get mad at BOTH..To the Mother..You can’t force someone who clearly doesn’t want to be a PARENT to your CHILDREN..Public shaming him most times backfires. To many people they will see it as you’re just ANGRY and or MONEY HUNGRY and not that THIS GUY’S A LOSER PARENT! Stop with the public shaming..Teach your kids to be loving caring humans.
        To the Father..You surely didn’t think the Mother was crazy..childish when making BABIES with her! Thos kids DESERVE a Father who looks out for them..Cares how they doing..You shouldn’t have to be remind you have kids..You’re a famous B ball player..But no so famous for being a good DAD!Take a page out of KOBE’S Book be #KIDSDAD..Stop being famous for being a LOOSERDAD

    The comments did not pass the vibe check. Answer is they are both wrong. You just got your 1st ring now is not the time to air your laundry. Mr. Howard remember you are a brand leave the messy bull behind. Both of y’all are making decisions that will affect the kids a great deal. Royce your children should be old enough to understand what’s going on I bet they’re embarrassed. Smh

    Royce Dwight both need to grow up. Dwight blocked her from talking about him on basketball wives it was a reason for that. Yes that was years ago. Royce not dumb he knew she gonna tell everything on that show. Dwight don’t like her cause she’s not kissing his a-s. What happened in the dark will come to the light. Everything you see glitters not gold.

    Umm Royce isn’t being all the way honest. All the players had to stay in the bubble and not see their families the last few months because of the pandemic. Even LeBron talked about it on his social media. So if you go by what Royce said, Dwight hasn’t seen his kids since being in the bubble. And when she asked him to see their son, he most likely said I have to see what the team says because they were in the bubble and under strict rules. I think Royce pulled the son card because people correctly called out her pettiness prior. She was getting dragged on the ig blogs so she made it about her son for sympathy. She really felt some type of way seeing that man happy and enjoying the moment with his fiancée.

    She’s always dragging him and he pays her dust. Now she has to communicate with him about their son through another person.

    Dwight needs to do better but this ain’t the way to address this issue. Get a lawyer and handle your problems offline. And for goodness sake, leave his girlfriend alone. It’s not her responsibility to make Dwight man up.

    Of course this isnt tbe way to to it but id call his a-s out as well if he wasnt doing his fatherly duties. His girl is petty as. well her post was to get a rise outta Reece cause she knew she would bite. Bottom line is take care of whats urs. Money cant buy their love.

      You may need to reread the post. Royce isn’t some innocent victim. She came for Dwight’s girlfriend first. That woman was minding her business and enjoying her man winning his first ring. Royce came for her on IG because she was triggered the moment he got engaged and seemed happy. If your ex being happy bothers you, you’re not over the relationship.

    Keep your family business private. Take legal action if needed. Leave the Fiancee out of it. Its between you and him about the children. Move on from this. Set an example for the children. #selfrespectispriceless.

    If Royce and Dwight are acting childish about this situation it’s a shame. Dwight has so many baby mamas and he’s very immature. Royce is very jealous and always have been. This should have been resolved long ago not after Dwight is at his greatest moment in the NBA. Dwight probably is reluctant to deal with Royce concerning the son, who is about 13 or 14 btw.

    Dwight new girl better be taking good notes on Dwight because he is not hesitating to side line his own flesh & blood, she better prepare for when her demise will come because he is showing her exactly who he is.

      Demise? Wow. Some of you sound so bitter on here. No wonder why you relate to Royce. Sitting around hoping and waiting on someone else’s karma is a pretty pathetic way to live. Let all that hurt go and stop letting people from the past have so much control over you. Royce looks ridiculous doing all this over a man she hasn’t been with in many years.
