NBA superstar, Dwight Howard was accused by Elije, who wrote on Twitter that he is a gay man, of being engaged in a romantic relationship with him. Elije is suing the NBA star, claiming Howard tried to harass him into signing a non-disclosure agreement after their purported relationship ended. Howard has since countersued.
Howard fought through the hurt and found a new level of freedom.
Howard said during a two-part interview on Fox Sports 1’s “Fair Game,” that the allegations about him and his sexuality, which surfaced last year and were expanded on in a lawsuit filed by Masin Elije in March, deeply affected him, giving him a different outlook on life and society.
“It really just set me free,” Howard said.
