BSO broke the story that Masin Elije was suing Dwight Howard for threatening him after Elije refused to sign an NDA. Elije who is gay claimed that he was Howard’s boyfriend and once they broke up Howard was worried he would go public.
He sued Howard, but now Howard is countersuing.
Back in November, Dwight Howard made headlines over rumors of his alleged history with transgender women and men, made by Youtube star, Masin Elije, who claimed to be the baller’s ex-boyfriend. In a series of tweets, Masin chronicled his alleged relationship with Howard, explaining how it turned sour after he found out about Howard’s alleged sexcapades with transgender women and other men.
Three months later, as Howard remained mum about the allegations, Masin moved forward with a lawsuit, accusing the Washington Wizard of assault and infliction of emotional distress. In the suit, obtained by Bossip, Masin said Howard threatened his life after he refused to sign a nondisclosure agreement, which would prevent him from speaking on their alleged relationship.
He said he suffered physical, mental and emotional distress, in addition to financial losses, for which Masin demanded damages. But now, Howard is officially speaking out about the entire ordeal, disputing all of Masin’s claims, including the rumors surrounding their alleged relationship. In fact, in new legal docs obtained by the publication, Howard has countersued Masin, real name Maurice Slingletary, over the allegations.
Howard is countersuing him for $10 million.
