Royce Reed may be criticized for her decision to ask Dwight Howard to pay legal fees accrued in her and the NBA player’s custody battle, but she’s not going down in silence. The reality star recently took to Instagram to defend herself after TMZ broke the story and critics began to talk.


“Mom Law: My son deserves the best & rather than take food out his mouth, the roof from over his head, an education, extracurricular activities, great Birthdays & Christmases, & the smile off his face, I WILL file necessary motions. Judge that if u live in a Glass House.” The actress further stated, “We will never struggle… Period! Braylon will always have the best! That’s what I fight for.”

Reed has acquired $40,000 in legal fees since Dwight motioned to gain sole custody of their son Braylon in 2010. The former ‘Basketball Wives’ star is expected to have over $100,000 in legal debt at the custody battle’s ending. Dwight has not commented on whether he will or will not pay Reed’s expenses.
