Over the past four months I’ve had multiple sources raving to me about a new girl Dwight Howard has been seeing.
Her name is Christine Vest and she’s a recent graduate of Chico (CA) State, where she played basketball.
I was hesitant to let the cat out of the bag because of Howard’s tumultuous off-court personal issues but from what I’ve heard, Vest is keeper material - in more ways than one.
The 22-year-old Vest is an aspiring singer/songwriter who may actually have the talent to make it in the music biz without glomming onto Howard’s celebrity. Vest has already accrued multiple thousands of views on YouTube despite her complete anonymity.
In other words, she’s not a groupie who only views Howard as a lotto ticket on an exit ramp to Realityshowville.
Forever citing his Faith and the beneficiary of mostly kid glove treatment from the media, Howard’s personal foibles off the court haven’t much dented his image with the public.
Howard’s issues with baby mama Royce Reed are well-chronicled, and there’s plenty of whispers around the league that Howard’s poor judgement in his personal life extends beyond his litigation-addled relationship with Reed.
With that in mind, and from what I’ve been told about Howard’s 22-year-old female acquaintance, here’s hoping he continues to play this one close to the Vest.
