Tweet Revenge -- Dwight Howard Sues Ex Again

12/19/2009 7:17 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Dwight Howard is accusing his baby mama of endangering the security of their 2-year-old child -- and her alleged weapon of choice ... Twitter.

Howard just filed another lawsuit against his ex -- Royce Lyndsay Reed -- claiming she broke a court order by posting photos of their kid on Twitter.

According to documents filed by Howard earlier this month in Florida, Reed was ordered by a judge in 2008 to refrain from posting images of their son Braylon on "blogs, websites, etc."

The reason behind the 2008 court order -- the Orlando Magic star believes throwing the kid's pics on the web poses "a significant security threat to the child because [Dwight] is a highly-paid public personality."

In the docs, Howard is suing Reed for $142,500 -- which is $500 for each of her 285 Twitter followers -- plus attorney's fees.

As we first reported, Dwight filed a $9.2 million lawsuit against Reed earlier this month, because she allegedly bashed him on a gossip website.

Once again, that was something a judge told her not to do.

This is an interesting article. It'll be interesting to see how it all goes down. As for the rest of these bloggers, they sure seem racist.

I disagree with the court orders banning her from talking about him. They are taking away her RIGHT TO FREE SPEECH. She needs a better attorney.

Hell I'm all for it.
What you post on the web you can't get back EVER. As a parent Reed should know that and want to protect her child. Do you know how many perverts are out that photo shopping kids photos and creating child porn. I'm not a celebrity and didn't start posting my childs photo until she was a teenager. You don't see Halle, J-Lo posting pictures of their children its his right and I say go for it.

She wants fame and fortune for having a child by a Celebrity. Shut'em down. The mother/father relationship is not amicable and she needs to focus on fixing that for the sake of her child first. Things could change but until then DO YOUR Dwight. I'm glad I can say your name. LMAO.....

@ niffty

"Also Dwight should better educate himself. Or maybe Howard didn't apply himself very well while in College."

Considering Howard went to the NBA straight out of high school, your comment doesn't make much sense regarding his time in college.

I am so happy this man, and Dwayne Wade, is standing for himself. I am happy they are showing men everywhere that they have rights, have rights to their children, and do not have to take this unintelligent mess from these females. Sadly, children are invovled, and these women and men should stop having casual sex producing children out of wedlock.
