Royce Reed – Boyfriend, Husband, Children, Divorce

Reed began to date NBA star Dwight Howard in 2005. The couple had met in July 2004 when she worked as a dancer for the Orlando Magic. She gave birth to her boyfriend’s child- son Braylon Joshua Robert Howard on November 18, 2007.

But their love affair did not last long and they soon went their separate ways. In the spring of 2008, Royce Reed filed a paternity suit against Howard requesting the Orange County Circuit Court to grant 'child support determined by Florida’s Child Support Guidelines.' The custody battle dragged on for years and was very messy. Finally, after 8 years, both settled down for co-parenting. Howard is also a father to four kids with different women.

In 2012 Royce Reed began dating American football wide receiver, Dezmon Briscoe. But the relationship did not last long and they broke up later in the same year. 

Currently, Reed is believed to be a single sans husband. As she has never married, divorce is out of context.
