*The 8-year war between Dwight Howard and his reality star ex, Royce Reed, is finally over … TMZ Sports has learned the bitter battle between the two has come to an end, and family members are responsible for encouraging them to end the bitter battle, reunite, and act civil toward each other.
Family members tell the celebrity entertainment site that they encouraged the former lovers to come together and hash out a truce for the sake of their 8-year-old son. Dwight and Royce agreed and have vowed to end the fighting — instead focusing on co-parenting.
As one source put it, “They decided to stop hating each other and made a promise to their son they would get along.”
The couple have been hanging out a lot lately, and Royce posted a pic of the 3 out at a recent NBA game. So far, everything is peaceful.
