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 ...

Seems like the only salty people commenting negatively on this post is all females, LOL. She screwed up because they have a contract & she went against it. She's went on Facebook or Myspace posting pics up with her son in the background when he clearly didn't want his son exposed to their lives out in public. She probably did other things too. She deserves it. Instead of giving child support money to her, he shouldn't have to pay for an extended amount of time due to her not being able to pay it. Then of course he would get visitation rights on top of that.

Team Dwight!!! She violated a contract, so she should deal with the penalty. If she didn't sign away her freedom of speech about him for $500K, she could've said any petty/vindictive crap she wanted, but her love of money made her sign on the dotted line. Now, she has to give it back with interest.

WOW! There are a lot of salty azz chicks up here. @Sultry, you must be one of these thirsty chicks to defend A dumb broke bitch who could not hold up her end of the bargain,that she got payed a half of million for. She broke the order more than 11 times. Nobody told her to run her mouth, you don't see Shaq's ex running her mouth because she has a lot more to lose.

What a disgusting pig of a man. So take money from your child's mother, money that could be spent taking care of the child? Whatever happened to freedom of speech? She should be able to say whatever she wants.

By all means. He is right for suing her. It was a simple agreement she got paid happily at the moment during her agreement to sign the contract and she breached it. Knock a black man down for doing the right thing. For keeping the peace by stopping bad publicity and keeping his son away from her lifestyle. Like Damn Can anyone tell me which rich celebrity give there baby momma 500k anytime any day? bottom line she messed up and she will learn not too. As far as I am concerned 500K is just too much to take lightly.

Beyond the "Image"    

Not only is he making too much of this, but I agree with the post that by making it such a big deal, he must have something to hide (regardless of a contract with her). Why the need for a contract in the first place? She wasn't too much of a "ho" when he decided to make a baby with her. So now that "they" have a child, she's suddenly a ho. And don't give me the "everybody makes mistakes" crap because if he made a mistake by sleeping with her, then she's allowed the mistake of mentioning him. He tries to come off holier than thou and then can't forgive her for the sake of his public reputation. (Wants to look good for the people after he's slept around like the ho "he" is)

F!ck this gold digging whore.. She made millions for opening her legs to someone -- and still f!cked that up.. And people are defending her??? She doesn't care about Dwight Howard because if she did she wouldn't be publicly blasting the father of her children on national television every week! But of course "the women is ALWAYS the victim right"? All she had to do was keep her f!ckn mouth shut and cash those $100,000 a mouth checks to "raise Dwight's kids" but in reality piss away millions shopping for HERSELF like all these HouseWhores.. The court of law ruled in his favor and she thumbed her nose at it, yet it's still Dwight's fault??? If you watch the show for two seconds you will see what a b!tch this woman is.. She makes all woman look bad. Now its back to being a broke, ignorant, classless, Baller-Prostitute..

How can a Man take money from his childs mother ? What a piece of Crap. Not a man at all.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

How can a woman take money from her child's father? Then bash him in public? If Dwight gave me 500K and then 10K a month for the next 18 years I wouldn't say anything but nice things about him.
