Over the past Thanksgiving weekend, it was more things being dished than leftover turkey! Author Masin Elije, who identifies as a gay man/cisgender, accused Washington Wizards NBA player Dwight Howard of sexual harassment and threatening his life. Masin unleashed a series of tweets to expose Dwight Howard of whom Masin is claiming is his ex-boyfriend. According to Vibe, Masin claimed to have met Dwight on the set of ‘Wild ‘N Out’. Masin claims the two made eye contact and a week later [Dwight] was in his DMs. It escalated to intimate photos being exchanged to IG video chats and things got serious. Masin tells the story via a series of tweets. So, according to Masin, their alleged relationship started to deteriorate after Masin learned that Dwight was sleeping with other people. Masin assumed he was sleeping with prostitutes, but later determined he was attending transgender sex parties.
After Masin found out Dwight was attending the transgender sex parties, he confronted Dwight who, at this point Masin claims, threatened him. Masin said he started getting threatening calls and a guy who works for Dwight named Calvin got “irate, disrespectful and homophobic” after Masin refused to take the “hush money” and sign a non-disclosure agreement. Masin claims he’s already contacted police out of fear for his life, but if anything happens to him, here is his proof. He added screenshots of an alleged DM conversation he had with Dwight where he was asking Dwight “Does your mother, brother, friends know that you like to deal with trans and men? Or that’s just something you’ve kept to yourself?” and Dwight replied “Why are you asking me for?”
Here’s the kicker: Masin accused Playboi Carti of similar allegations last year which proved to be a fake DM conversation that he shared. Someone posted on twitter “you posted this as proof but they were fake DMs. You doing the same thing again but just with Dwight Howard this time… please seek help.” Dwight Howard has yet to respond to the allegations.
