Royce Reed recently set the record straight about her past relationship with babydaddy Dwight Howard and clarified that her new relationship is the real thing.
During season 2 of "Basketball Wives," Royce, who described herself as a “relationship girl,” introduced viewers to her boyfriend at the time, Dwayne Moore. She was with him for nine months; however, her co-stars made it clear that they were not a fan of him, but neither were her parents.
Royce’s parents, who have been together for more than 41 years, are her inspiration when it comes to relationships. She would like to find the type of love they have, and she thinks she may have found it with Tampa Bay Buccaneer receiver, Dezmon Briscoe.
When the DJs at Power 105.1 in New York asked whether she believed she and Dezmon would be together for the rest of their lives, she answered without hesitation, “Yeah, I do.”
A month ago drama surrounded the new couple after Royce tweeted a photo of Dezmon and her son, Braylon sleeping in bed. Although she believed it to be cute and innocent, many questioned the photo, mainly because Braylon’s father is NBA star, Dwight Howard.
Royce explained that she and Dezmon have been together now for six months and as long as she’s serious about the person she’s dating, she doesn’t see a problem allowing her son to spend time with him. She also said she wouldn’t have an issue if the tables were turned and it was Dwight taking photos of their son in bed with his girlfriend.
Although Royce’s past relationship with Dwight is what led Shaunie to select her for the hit show, there was a point and time when Royce had nothing but horrible things to say about her ex and went to Twitter to share her thoughts.
Now, she can’t say much about Dwight because of what amounts to a gag order, but she did say she was the one that backed away from the relationship. Royce said, “A lot of people think it was a one-night stand,” but she explained her relationship with the NBA all-star actually lasted four years.
“I can talk about him to an extent… to what extent, I don’t really even know,” Royce said.
Nonetheless, she expressed pure happiness over her new beau.
