Dwight Howard's Ex

Our Custody Judge

Has a Baby Mama Bias!

The mother of NBA star Dwight Howard's son wants the judge in their custody case removed stat ... because she claims he has it out for women who have children out of wedlock with NBA stars. 

Royce Reed is battling Dwight in court in an effort to retain primary custody of their son. Dwight filed docs earlier this month to try and wrangle custody from her ... claiming she interferes with his relationship with their son and makes it difficult for him to see the boy on his scheduled days.

The "Basketball Wives" star came back this week with a motion of her own ... to have Judge Tim Shea taken off the case. She claims he has a bias against baby mamas and she fears he may side with Dwight because he's a local celebrity.

In her filing, Reed claims Shea wouldn't let her present her side during a court hearing last month. Reed's lawyer also filed an affidavit saying that during the hearing, Judge Shea said he would award Howard custody, then decided to delay his decision ... despite the fact no evidence had been presented.

Reed also claims there might be a conflict of interest since Shea's own website lists one of Howard's lawyers, Mayanne Downs, as one of his endorsers (see below).

Reed pleads in the docs, "I am afraid if Judge Shea continues to preside over this case, I will lose custody of my son."

A hearing on the matter has been set for later this month.

Uh, she's only figuring out now the judge has a bias? She should fire her attorney and get one who knows the score. If she's in San Diego, here's the score

Dwight you travel way to much to have you damn son. Get him on your break after the finals. Leave her alone she is a good Mother. You were in love with her when she had your child so know she is TV and making money to take care of herself and the child. She is not depenending on Child Support. She has a dance studio and Miami BBW's

For those that commented that Dwight Howard is private that's pure BS. Dwight has been happily acting the part of whore and changes women more often than most people change clothes. He loves the spotlight and is trying to capitilize on Royce's fame. Seems like him and Jennifer's soon to be ex-hubby have a lot in common.....both are closet fame whores.

Shouldn't the show be called Basketball Baby Mamas since few if any of them are married?

They have been going back forth about their child since she first appeared on BW. The reason you don't see the child on the show is because Dwight refused to let him be filmed. I don't know who is lying and who is not but I hope they get this worked out soon. It's been going on way too long.

Rich or poor the whole system is geared up for the woman.. A+ dads vs D- moms will lose each and every time ... The only way a man can seem to win custody if the mother has an addiction problem.. If the man makes more and has the mean to support a family would that means he is the more qualified parent

This little ghetto rat Royce is nothing but a ho, cheat chaser, dream killer, and a dirty hole. She wanted to get paid, so she slept with anyone in the NBA to insure child payments until 18 and support. All the basketball wives are exes - not wives and most are jump offs that wanted money for their holes. They are all prostitutes, mostly the beatch, Evelyn, who is marrying Ocho Cinco, after leaving her ex cause he went broke. They are all scandalous, greasy, and nasty.
