Dwight Howard‘s NBA Championship celebration has been overshadowed in the streets of social media after Royce Reed aired him out for being a deadbeat father to their son Braylon.

The former “Basketball Wives” star has been very vocal over the years about Dwight’s absenteeism and the impact it has on their son, but this post in particular broke my heart.

Royce wrote in the caption:

Y’all better stop praising ppl based off a screenshot of their lives on tv and Instagram posts. Better yet… imagine having to text a 3rd party to try and find out if this person plans on seeing their 2 kids that live here and that they haven’t seen since July or SPOKEN to since August before they leave the city and the response is “I don’t know, I gotta see what the team doin”.

A multimillionaire who can catch any flight with a choice to spend a couple hours with children who want to think he’s their own personal Superman. A child who REALLY NEEDS HIM RIGHT NOW! But… I hold this little boy at night through tears and anger. I comfort him. I raise him with love not through money. So anyone who has an issue with that F**K YALL! Straight up! Braylon will always cause my lioness to come out! PERIOD! #mytherapistisgonnakillme

Dwight Howard was overwhelmed with emotion as he clutched the Larry O’Brien NBA Championship Trophy on Sunday night and gushed about believing in yourself and not giving up on your dreams in an IG Live video.

It breaks my heart knowing Braylon won’t share or celebrate this momentous occasion with his father.

Braylon did post on Instagram, “Champions. My dad got a ring.”

Dwight liked the post.
