Dwight Howard

Baby Mama Wants $100k

To Fight Him in Court

EXCLUSIVE

1124_Royce-Reed-and-dwight_howard_gettyDwight Howard's baby mama says her nasty custody battle with the NBA star is an unfair fight -- all because he can simply outspend her -- so she's asking a judge to make HIM cover HER legal fees.

TMZ broke the story ... Dwight and former "Basketball Wives" star Royce Reed are entangled in a bitter legal battle after Dwight filed for sole custody of their young son.

In the latest development, Royce -- who was axed from "BB Wives" this year -- filed docs in Florida asking a judge to make Dwight foot her legal bills, claiming she can't afford them.

According to the docs, Royce claims that Dwight rakes in over $1.3 million per month and should cough up the cash, otherwise, the fight's not fair. She claims he can hire an army of lawyers ... while she'll get buried in bills and eventually have to drop out.

In the docs, her lawyer says she's already racked up a $44,113.50 bill and is expected to tack on another $60k plus if she continues to fight ... for a grand total of $106,621.80.

A judge has yet to rule.

George, you cannot equate those who post on this site as representative of this country. You just can't, so don't.

I am sure he gives money to the white gold digger he's with now. So pay for your children and you wouldn't be in court.

As a couple we have been thru hell, but we would like to work it out for our son chase.
we both have alot of faults and demons but what is best now is to try and put all of this madness
behind us and move forward.

I do not know the particulars of this case, but both parties ought to have equal representation in court. It's not fair when money really gets to be a deciding factor rather than caring and responsible parenting.
