A woman named Masin Elijè has posted a Twitter thread accusing Washington Wizards center Dwight Howard of allegedly “sleeping with” an alleged transgender prostitute.
A Twitter thread posted by Masin Elijè at 9:44 p.m. on Saturday, November 24, claims that she was in a relationship (she called Howard her “ex-boyfriend”) with former NBA All-Star Dwight Howard and that he “slept with” an alleged transgender prostitute.
At the time of this writing, Howard has yet to officially respond to Elijè’s accusations.
Elijè, who is a published author, is also a transgender woman.
Elijè’s complete Twitter thread is quite lengthy, so we’ve transcribed the most important sections below, via Twitter:
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.
I met Dwight a while back, at Wild N Out to be exact, we made eye contact, and a week later he was in my DM’s. I’m use to dealing with celebrities so automatically I told him hit me from his “finsta” (fake page) so our convo wouldn’t get leaked, I mean he is a “Legend.”
Conversation started, escalating to nudes being sent, escalating to me blowing his mind and him calling me every night on instagram video chat. Time went by and shit started getting serious!
I kept it real with him, and he kept it real with me about everything EXCEPT 1 THING.
So I find out that he is basically sleeping with someone else, and here is how that went.
So this is the someone else, A transgender prostitute that he ALSO had a “understanding” with.
Dwight Howard is a 32-year-old NBA center who has played for the Washington Wizards, Charlotte Hornets, Atlanta Hawks, Houston Rockets, Los Angeles Lakers, and the Orlando Magic.
During the 2009 season, Howard led the Orlando Magic to the NBA Finals, where they eventually lost to Kobe Bryant’s Los Angeles Lakers.
Once a dominant force in the league, Howard’s career has tapered off in recent years for various reasons.
