Dwight Howard breaks his silence on the rumors that he is gay amid sexual assault allegations. 

The former NBA player went on Instagram Live to tell people to worry about themselves and what they do in their bedroom and not about what he does in his. “Whatever I’m doing in my bedroom is my damn business. Whatever you are doing in your bedroom is your damn business,” he said. 

He continued, “Everybody don’t need to know. You ain’t got to say what is going on in your house. That ain’t for everybody on the internet. Y’all are just weird.” He would later post a reel reminding fans that he is unphased by the rumors and what people are saying about him. 

This address comes after he admitted to having consensual sexual activity with a man and a transgender woman. Howard was also accused of sexual assault by Stephen Harper with the “intentional infliction of emotional distress and false imprisonment.”
