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 ...

Its interesting everyone is coming down on D. Howard but she is the victim? If he violated the order then guess what that's on her. He may or may not be involved in his child's life but that's not what this is about, its about a court order, which so many women run to court to enforce child support and a host of other things, that should be handled outside of court so if you're going to put it in the court system then that's where it should stay. He's not taking money out of his child's hands, he can buy his child anything he wants, its about respecting the agreement that they both came to. Good luck in the future cause this is not the end....

i dont blame him. she has made her success off of him. this man has bought her a house in Florida (which i stay near) and she still wanted $20,00 amonth from him. NO CHILD COSTS THAT MUCH!!! just because she gave birth to his child does not give her the right to live off of his fortune.

listen to all of you lames defending this chick... I don't know the details of their divorce but i'm willing to bet that this chick got millions from it, and i've never seen her dunk a basketball. now you losers want to talk about her being the mother of his kid and blah blah blah. so what, he can take care of his kid. he can buy his kid clothes and whatever the kid needs to live comfortably. he shouldnt have to take care of her too. she is a grown woman and needs to take care of herself. GET HER MR HOWARD!

Take all of her money Dwight!!! She was probably living off of his child support payments anyway!!! Just worry about the kids and live your life. I bet if it were the other way around, all of the women on here would want her to take all of his money!!!

men, if you don't want to be surprised by people's behavior after you sleep with them, then maybe you should take the time to get to know them. promiscuity has consequences for both sexes, apparently.

this guy must've got Oj's lawyer - how does royce owe half a mill when he slept with her - maybe he's using it to pay for his sex change so he can be a true p*ssy

I like Royce but this isn't bias. I think the plan is that Dwight Howard wants to take all of Royce's money so that she can no longer provide financially for the baby so he can get sole custody of the baby which will cut off the whole child support thing. Going to California to get propety that she doesn't even have just shows how serious he is about making his plan go through. Unfortunately he didn't use protection like most young athletes don't and now he has to deal with 18 years of payments. Parents are ruining childrens lives by being caniving and vingeful. It's wrong to break a gag order but what could really be said about him that was so bad? Nothing at all, he's not gay or "little" so this was strictly done out of spite.

I can honestly say that I'm suprised to finally see a player fight back so hard!
