Royce Reed came into the mainstream media through her role in reality television show, Basketball Wives. Royce has kept relatively low-profile since exiting the show. It appears, she has once again gained spotlight, but for all the wrong reasons.
HNHH reported, the former NBA dancer was featured on the reality show because she shares her son, Braylon with Dwight Howard. Over the years, their tumultuous relationship has unraveled on social media.
On March 11, Reed made headlines when she turned herself over to the authorities. According to several reports, her 14-year-old son, Braylon sexually molested Reed’s boyfriend’s child. A police report was shared online which detailed Reed’s charges.
The Basketball Wives alum faced charges of child neglect over Braylon’s actions because she allowed him to be around other children when she knew he was forbidden. The teen reportedly admitted to molesting a child and had been under counseling from a sexual treatment therapist.
A judge reportedly made an order that Braylon was not to be around other children of certain ages. However, Braylon reportedly violated the order and molested another child. The police report also alleged that Braylon admitted to the act and stated that he did it because he was angry with the other kid.
The teen reportedly added that he thinks his anger causes him to act out sexually. After the news went viral, Royce Reed took to her Instagram story to share a message.
“I shouldn’t even have to deal with or address this,” she wrote. “1. I did not get arrested, I turned myself in because I had to. 2. Talk to my attorney. As for the picture… I was scared as sh*t and was crying like a baby the whole time… I’m not ’bout that life’ but I did it and we’re gonna get through this… [flexing arm emoji].”
