Dezmon Briscoe As Her Rumored Husband
Back in 2012, Royce Reed was all over the internet when she started dating the American football wide receiver, Dezmon Briscoe.
In April 2012, Royce Reed had a Twitter beef with the American football wide receiver, Dezmon Briscoe's baby mama Christina Nero. As per theybf.com, Dezmon ex-girlfriend, Christina sent an explicit sex message that 'he supposedly sent her within last month.'
Dezmon even admitted sending explicit messages to his baby mama. In spite of Dezmon's admission, Royce insisted that she still loves Dezmon.
A day later of their feud, rumors surfaced that Royce and Dezmon are getting married. Her co-star Kenya Bell took out her Twitter and declared that Dezmon is set to be a husband of Royce. However, the starlet of Basketball Wives didn't get married.
Instead in late 2012, Royce confirmed that she and Dezmon separated over infidelity issues. She cleared the rumors on her Twitter account in late 2012 and revealed that they were not dating.
However, in October 2013 in an interview with madamenoire.com, she said that she has reconciled with Dezmon after on-and-off-again relationship in 2012. She said,
"We went through some bad times and for the past year it was very on and off, really it was a lot of off. But I guess he realized what he lost because all of a sudden I got a long message that was really sincere that he missed me. I mean, hey, who doesn’t? Just kidding! We’re good, we’re taking it really slow."
However, their brief reconciliation ended, and the duo is again separated.
Feud With Ex-Boyfriend Dwight Howard Over Son
Before Dezmon, the reality star Royce was dating American professional basketball player Dwight Howard. The duo met on 31 July 2004 when she was a dancer for the Orlando Magic. They soon started dating, and their relationship began to blossom. Together, the estranged couple welcomed their son Braylon Howard on 18 November 2007.
However, soon after embracing Braylon, the pair decided to walk separate paths. Moreover, she filed a paternity suit against Dwight during the spring of 2008 and requested the Orange County Circuit Court to grant 'child support determined by Florida’s Child Support Guidelines.'

Even though her ex-boyfriend acknowledged Braylon as his son in 2008, their battle over custody of their son continued for years. Dwight sought sole custody of his son and claimed that Royce was an unfit mother after she brought her son to the restaurant company, Hooters during his birthday and posted the pictures on social media sites.
According to the source, in 2010, the basketball player sued Royce for slandering his name in the media and filed $550,500,000 for damages. He won the suit, and the court decided in the Settlement and Parenting Agreement stating she would be fined $500 for any inappropriate remarks against her ex. In 2014, Royce claimed Dwight physically abused their son, but the authorities closed the case due to lack of evidence.
Their eight-year-feud finally came to a halt in June 2016, and they both agreed towards co-parenting their son.
