The twelve-year-old son of Basketball Wives star, Royce Reed, is sounding off against his father, Dwight Howard.
The preteen took to Instagram Live over the weekend to blast his father as a deadbeat dad who rarely communicates with his children. Braylon begged his father for attention in the heartbreaking vid, before blasting the NBA star.
“You don’t talk to me, you don’t call me, and you don’t try to,” Braylon said in the emotional plea. “You never call me, [and when we speak] you never like talking to me.. . . you’re never around.”
“As of right now, I hate you … and I’m not saying this because someone told me to. I actually hate you,” Braylon tearfully told his NBA dad.

Dwight Howard reportedly has five children—with five different women.
Royce accused Dwight of abusing their son in October 2014, and while the claim did not result in charges, Dwight did admit to disciplining Braylon with a belt. Dwight’s personal life made headlines in March after the mother of his son, David, Melissa Rios, passed away after suffering an epileptic seizure.
