Royce Reed Accuses Judge Of Bias In Custody Fight With Dwight Howard

#CherryJuice Off 1

Basketball Wives star Royce Reed is accusing the judge in her custody fight against NBA star Dwight Howard of being biased against women who have children out of wedlock with NBA stars and has requested he be removed from the case. According to TMZ:

“Royce Reed is battling Dwight in court in an effort to retain primary custody of their son. Dwight filed docs earlier this month to try and wrangle custody from her … claiming she interferes with his relationship with their son and makes it difficult for him to see the boy on his scheduled days.

The Basketball Wives star came back this week with a motion of her own … to have Judge Tim Shea taken off the case. She claims he has a bias against baby mamas and she fears he may side with Dwight because he’s a local celebrity.

In her filing, Reed claims Shea wouldn’t let her present her side during a court hearing last month. Reed’s lawyer also filed an affidavit saying that during the hearing, Judge Shea said he would award Howard custody, then decided to delay his decision … despite the fact no evidence had been presented.

Reed also claims there might be a conflict of interest since Shea’s own website lists one of Howard’s lawyers, Mayanne Downs, as one of his endorsers.

Reed pleads in the docs, ‘I am afraid if Judge Shea continues to preside over this case, I will lose custody of my son.’

A hearing on the matter has been set for later this month.”

If the judge has any bias at all, we think it has nothing to do with Royce having a kid out of wedlock with a NBA star and everything to do with the foolishness (although we love the foolishness, but hey, we’re not the judge) that goes down on Basketball Wives.
