Dwight Howard has now filed a countersuit against the man who came forward last year and claimed that he and the NBA star were in a relationship.
Howard found himself at the center of controversy after a YouTube star by the name of Masin Elije sued the baller for assault, infliction of emotional distress and more after he allegedly refused to sign an NDA.
“I was afraid to speak, but today my life was threatened after I was sexually harassed, threatened and manipulated, by someone I respected, my ex-boyfriend NBA player Dwight Howard, and his camp also ‘catfished’ by his disrespectful ass PASTOR,” Masin said back in November.
But according to Bossip, Howard denies all of Masin’s claims, and osays Masin’s case has no legal standing, especially since Howard was never officially served.
“Mr. Howard is an upstanding citizen in all respects,” the countersuit reads. “Unfortunately, his public life and generosity have made him the target of the plaintiff as unrelenting and hostile smear campaign. And Maurice Singletary continues to aggressively, harass, threaten, call and text Mr. Howard and besmirch his reputation on various social media platforms.”
Howard is Masin suing for $10 million, for libel, slander, invasion of privacy and abusive litigation.
