Last week was Father's Day, and Dwight Howard's baby mama Christine Vest let him have it.

Christine, a gospel singer, and Dwight dated for almost 5 years, and have a son together.

But the couple split a couple of years back, and now it appears that Dwight has become a "deadbeat Daddy" to their son.

On Father's Day, while women were praising the fathers of their children - Christine did the opposite. Look what she posted about Dwight:

Having lived a sheltered, Christian lifestyle before coming to the NBA, Howard let loose when he got his first NBA contract and hordes of women apparently came along with the paychecks he started to receive. Five children with five different women later, Howard told SI the religion that used to be his anchor when he first came into the league eventually became a burden because of his new lifestyle.

"I was ashamed because I’d talked so much about being a Christian, professed my faith to the whole world, and here I was with a baby out of wedlock," Howard said, recalling the birth of his first child. "My parents judged me. A lot of people judged me. I felt like I shouldn’t even be out in public because everyone looked at me as a hypocrite. I felt like I didn’t need my relationship with God anymore, and that caused a lot of pain."

Dwight is a basketball player for the Washington Wizards of the National Basketball Association (NBA).

Howard, who plays center, spent his high school career at Southwest Atlanta Christian Academy. He chose to forgo college, entered the 2004 NBA draft, and was selected first overall by the Orlando Magic. An eight-time All-Star, eight-time All-NBA Team honoree, five-time All-Defensive Team member, and three-time Defensive Player of the Year, Howard set numerous franchise and league records during his time with the Magic. In 2009, he led the team to the NBA Finals.

He has 5 children, from 5 babys mothers.
