Royce Reed wants the judge removed from the custody case against Dwight Howard over their son Braylon

Another day, another court hearing between Basketball Wives star Royce Reed and Orlando Magic All-Star Dwight Howard. Howard is seeking custody of he and Reed’s four-year old son Braylon. Royce is seeking  Judge Tim Shea’s removal from the case because she feels he has a bias against “NBA baby’s mamas” well, the ones that were never married, AND he has ties to Dwight’s layer.

Royce Reed is battling Dwight in court in an effort to retain primary custody of their son. Dwight filed docs earlier this month to try and wrangle custody from her … claiming she interferes with his relationship with their son and makes it difficult for him to see the boy on his scheduled days. 

The “Basketball Wives” star came back this week with a motion of her own … to have Judge Tim Shea taken off the case. She claims he has a bias against baby mamas and she fears he may side with Dwight because he’s a local celebrity. 

In her filing, Reed claims Shea wouldn’t let her present her side during a court hearinglast month. Reed’s lawyer also filed an affidavit saying that during the hearing, Judge Shea said he would award Howard custody, then decided to delay his decision … despite the fact no evidence had been presented.

Reed also claims there might be a conflict of interest since Shea’s own website lists one of Howard’s lawyers, Mayanne Downs, as one of his endorsers


Is it just me or does it seem like whenever Royce starts to get cozy with a new guy- in this case Dezmon Briscoe of the Tampa Bay Bucs- Dwight starts hitting her with a slew of court motions and filings? Perhaps when Royce tweeted the photo of Dez and Braylon chilling in a father-and-son-esque situation, it was the final straw.


Then, there’s a few other obvious questions. Like, is Dwight attempting to get custody of his other children? I’d be willing to put good money on the answer to that question being NO. And, how is it that the guy that was being influenced by “people around him” and  the same guy that can’t decide what NBA team he really wants to play for, now wants to add the layer of single fatherhood to that equation? I mean if you can’t manage those decisions, how will you manage the day to day care of a four year old?

Don’t misunderstand, I’m not saying a NBA father can’t be a single dad. I am a huge supporter of Dwyane Wade and the moves he made. BUT, the situation with Dwight and Royce just feels different.
