Dwight Howard wants his new marriage to fiancé Te’a Cooper to start off as smooth as possible, and the only thing in the way of that is the case social media star Masin Elije has against the NBA player for harassment.
Elije sued the Memphis Grizzlies player earlier this year alleging that Howard began harassing and threatening him online and by phone when their alleged relationship ended. Howard countersued Elije (born Maurice Singletary) for $10 million, claiming he doesn’t know Elije and accused him of trying to gain clout to support his novel ‘Industry Hoe’.
According to new court documents obtained by Bossip, Howard said not only is Elije’s suit full of legal holes, but he has never stalked him, nor sent him “harassing communications” or directed others to do so. Howard said Elije’s suit fails to meet the threshold for an assault claim and he believes Elije should not be entitled to any money damages under state law.
The publication reports Howard wants Elije’s suit thrown out with prejudice, meaning Elije couldn’t sue him again. Howard also wants the man to pay all costs associated with the lawsuit.
