According to documents filed in California, Dwight Howard is suing Royce Reed, the mother of his 2 year old son, over allegedly defamatory comments that surfaced on gossip site LipstickAlley.com.
Dwight claims that posting the comments â€“ whether “directly or indirectly” under an Internet alias â€“ is in violation of an injunction he filed against her. In it Reed is ordered not mention the superstar by name or talk about him (that’s a serious court order, how do you get that.
Anywho, the lawsuit includes a few samples of the comments he claims she wrote on the website:
– “[Dwight] hasn’t seen his son in two months.”
– “Why file an injunction if you have nothing to hide?”
– “But the bottom line is Dwight is a douchebag.”
According to reports, Reed is “flabbergasted” by the lawsuit; Dwight wants $9,205,000 in damages.
Note from Freezy:
I can see a gag order about child support, etc., no book writing, stay 100 feet away from himâ€¦but don’t mention his name? Wow! These guys are using some savvy attorneys and what’s astonishing is the number he’s suing for: nine and a quarter million dollarsâ€¦for real? His child’s mother must be ballllin.
