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.

Is she saying that she can't trust a family court judge to look at the facts a make a determination about who would be the best custodial parent for the child., or is she saying that she wants to make sure she gets custody so she can milk him for every dime she can get so she can continue to live the lifestyle as the wife of a NBA player she has grown accustom to..... even though she was never his wife.

An affordable attorney knows the law as well as the next one. Stop giving them more money than they deserve.

I get what she is saying... I work in the legal field and know that attorneys are pricey. He can afford to lengthen the process all he wants, get his dream team to file motion after motion after motion for him, while she what?? Gives up because she can no longer pay her attorney? Attorneys don't work for free no matter how good of a mother you are.
