Last year, Dwight Howard was accused of attending trans orgies by a gay man who described himself as Howard's ex and who provided some receipts.
Howard's baby mama seemed to co-sign the accusation.
Howards hasn't played basketball since and is currently a free agent. He addressed the gay rumors on Fair Game with Kristine Leahy.
"I'm not gay... It hurt at first to go through it. I sat at home and I was like 'I never want to come outside again.'" @DwightHoward spoke on the allegations that he was gay.— Complex Sports (@ComplexSports) July 16, 2019

"I'm not gay," Howard said. "It’s a lot of people who are and they have to hide, and there’s people who have mental issues and they have to hide. There’s people who have different problems in life and they have to hide. They have to put on the mask every day, and it’s like, I don’t wanna wear no mask," he said.
Young Thug approves of that answer.
