NBA star Dwight Howard is being sued for visitation by the mother of his late ex-girlfriend Melissa Rios.
According to court documents obtained by The Blast, Edelmira Vega Rios, mother to Melissa, filed a petition for grandparent visitation. Earlier this year, Melissa tragically passed away from epileptic seizures. She died at her home in Calabasas, California. She was a Los Angeles real estate agent and epilepsy advocate.
Dwight has a 6-year-old son David from his relationship with Melissa.
In court documents, Edelmira says since Melissa’s death David has been living with her. She says Melissa and Dwight were never married.
