Dwight Howard Goes After Baby Mama's Money

4/25/2011 7:25 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Dwight Howard won a $500,000 judgment against his baby mama in the state of Florida for talking smack  about him -- but she hasn't paid up, so he's going after her in California.

Howard won the judgment against Royce Reed for half a mil last year because she violated a court order, prohibiting her from talking about him in the press.

Howard claims Reed now owes him $551,606.74 -- which includes interest.  So Howard has filed papers with a California court, which could give Howard the right to go after Reed's assets in Cali.

Good luck ... our sources say the "Basketball Wives" star has nada in California.

Like drawing blood from a stone ...

Why would this big azz cry baby take from his son, because that's exactly what he is doing, he is the biggest goof ball, but it's okay for his cry baby azz to go out and continue to make babies, are you going to cry when they talk about you boo, stop being a big azz brat and play ball do something conducted with your life and stop suing your child's Mother!

What an a**hole this guy is. He's clearly obsessed with her. Otherwise, why go through all the trouble for something so petty?

Before you Howard detractors go wasting your tears on Royce Reed, let me fill you in on some things. First of all, Ms. Reed makes $10,000 a month in child support ALONE, which translates to $120,000 a year. People go to college, to get the education/training to MAKE $100,000 a year, yet she gets it for pushing a basketball player's baby out. Poor her.

Second, she recieved $500,000 to shut up about her ex. That's it. Basically, she got paid 500K to move on with her life, yet she can't seem to. She signed a contract, and got 500K for her trouble. She violated it, and now she's paying the price, THE END. Her position in life/connection to Howard is irrelevant. She's an ADULT, and she knew what she was signing.

It just kills me that people will look at Howard and criticize him for coming up with this contract to begin with, then take her to court to enforce it, yet they won't look at the woman and wonder what the hell is wrong with her that she can't shut up for 500K. What planet are you people from?

She WILLINGLY signed a gag order, and recieved 500K, then she turned around and violated said gag order. Now she's being sued, and rightfully so. Her position in life/connection to him is irrelevant. She's an ADULT who violated a binding contract, END OF STORY.

And to all the idiots who call Howard a "bitch" and a "punk", just sit there and think about how easy it is to keep someone's name out of your mouth with no incentive. Now you're telling me that this woman couldn't shut up for 500K? Pull your heads out of your asses.

Crazy to call Dwight Howard names for expecting her to live up to a deal she signed to get money in the first place... The kid will be taken care of... That doesn't mean she can say whatever she wants... The trick is on Basketball Wives for God sake... Which is funny since she ain't nobody's wife!?

So don't hate on him?!@#$# Don't hate on her!!! How many of you know what was said?%$#@! Then how many of you give a darn?!@#$# Like I said Kick Rocks! HE is the one who needs to push on and grow the f*&k up.

Sultry...shut your trap. Reading is "fundamental". You should try it sometimes. I see you spending too much time listing to Rush and Glenn.

Sealsaa...thanks for that information. Looks like someone on her can read...or at least takes time to get information because they run off at the mouth.
