For the most part, Dwight and his nine baby mamas get along. From a financial standpoint, he has always had no problem keeping them happy, beyond his frequent battles with baby mama #1 Royce Reed.
But, now one of the nine is looking for a bigger payday according to The Blast.
According to legal documents obtained by The Blast, Melissa Rios is asking a judge to award her full physical and legal custody of their 4-year old son David.
She claims the NBA star is so busy playing basketball that he only see’s the boy 40 days a year, and claims he “travels extensively for business and has visited with David when it is convenient.”
She also says in the papers that “David has resided with me exclusively since his birth and I have made all of the day to day decisions regarding his health and education and welfare.”
It’s worth noting Rios is asking the judge to order child support paid by Howard, and if the judge agrees and awards her full custody with only visitation given to Dwight, she would be entitled a hefty sum based on his lucrative monthly salary.
We’re told Howard is adamant he already pays for the child’s school, purchased his baby mama a new SUV in 2017 and offered to put a Houston home in a trust for the child.
I guess the new SUV wasn’t enough.
