Dwight Howard to Royce Lyndsay Reed: Say My Name (and Get Sued)!

by at . Comments

The alleged affair between Tiger Woods and Rachel Uchitel isn't the only scandalous relationship making headlines in the Orlando area this week.

NBA star Dwight Howard of that city's magic is determined that negative word about him will be spoken by his baby mama ... we mean legally.

According to a judge, she's not even allowed to speak his name.

Court documents filed in Florida show that the superstar went to war in October with Royce Lyndsay Reed, the mother of his 2-year-old son, after she allegedly called the baller a deadbeat dad on her blog, Twitter and even on ESPN.

Dwight also alleges Royce Reed "is attempting to become a celebrity" even agreeing to "participate in a VH1 television show called NBA Wives."

As for how you can be on a show called NBA Wives and not be married, well, see Bravos Real Housewives franchise for lots of unwed precedent.

Dwight Howard won an injunction against Royce. Meaning what?

She's banned from "using or publishing, directly, indirectly or by innuendo, [Dwight's] name, nicknames, image, brand photographs, and/or likeness."

That would make it pretty much impossible for Royce Lyndsay Reed to appear on NBA Wives, which is probably what Dwight wants to ensure.

The lesson for the b-ball star? Be careful who you let see Dwight Howard nude, because they'll only try to cash in later. That and work on your jumper.
