Has Superman Dwight Howard found his Superwoman in “Goodies” singer Ciara? The newest LA Laker is dating the R&B superstar. According to Media Take Out, the couple have only been on a few dates but want to keep their relationship a secret. After Howard was criticized for causing dismay in the Orlando Magic organization, the source says, “Dwight is VERY conscious about how the public sees him . . . and he wants to be sure that him and Ciara are serious before he goes public with her.”
Last week, Howard was traded to the Lakers in a four-team deal. The trade marked the end of what Magic fans called the “Dwightmare.” The past year, Howard publicity criticized the team for not doing enough to build a championship contender. After the lockout in November, Howard requested a trade to the New Jersey Nets, Los Angeles Lakers or Dallas Mavericks. Despite the request, the Magic were unable to make a deal by March, and Howard amended his contract at the trade deadline keeping him from becoming a free agent at the end of the season. In May, the Magic fired head coach Stan Van Gundy and GM Otis Smith, and not long after Howard got his wish to be traded to LA.
A veteran jersey chaser, Ciara previously dated NY Knicks Amare Stoudemir and was rumored to have had an affair with LeBron James.
