"Basketball Wives" star Royce Reed has turned herself in to Florida police due to a third-degree felony charge of child neglect, according to reports.

Reed was charged with child neglect Thursday after her 14-year-old son Braylon, whom she shares with NBA star Dwight Howard, was accused of inappropriate conduct with a minor, according to court documents obtained by The Shade Room.

Last year, Reed's son allegedly made the unnamed minor son of Reed's boyfriend perform a sexual act while the two boys were at Reed’s home, the documents said.

When investigators questioned Reed's son about the incident, the teen admitted to making the minor perform a sexual act on him because he was "angry" with the other boy, according to the court documents. The 14-year-old boy also revealed that it happened on two separate occasions, the investigators said.

Reed's son also told investigators that "anger triggers him into acting out sexually."

The teen had been ordered by authorities not to have any conduct with minors two or more years younger than him following his history of inappropriate sexual conduct with minors, according to the court docs.

The son of Reed's boyfriend falls underneath those restrictions, but despite the order, Reed's son and the minor child had been together multiple times throughout the last year, the documents said. Reed is being blamed for her son's alleged rule-breaking.

Reed told investigators that her son has been seeing a sexual treatment counselor at TrueCore Behavioral Solutions for the past eight months.

However, when her son told the counselor about the incident, it was then forwarded to the Department of Children and Families.

This led to Reed turning herself in to police in Orange County, Florida, and being charged with third-degree felony child neglect.

Reed has since issued a statement about the open investigation via Instagram. She indicated that she cannot further speak on the details and that all inquiries should be forwarded to her attorney.

"I shouldn't even have to deal with or address this," she wrote, according to a screenshot obtained by The Shade Room. "I did not get arrested. I turned myself in because I had to. Talk to my attorney."

Reed was in a relationship with Howard in 2005. They first met in July 2004 when she was working as a dancer for Orlando Magic. They welcomed their son in November 2007, according to Sportskeeda.

In 2014, Reed accused Howard of having whipped their then-6-year-old son with a belt, causing bruising and abrasions on his leg. She informed the Florida Department of Children and Families, who determined that the child’s injuries were not serious.

Howard was interviewed by authorities over the claims. The NBA star admitted to using a belt on his son, but his lawyer filed legal documents claiming that Howard never caused marks, bruises, welts or injuries requiring medical treatment.

The case was dropped, and Howard was cleared of child abuse allegations, according to the Bleacher Report.
