Dwight Howard, Los Angeles Lakers, told the reporters that his son David’s mother had died, and he was mourning the loss of Melissa Rios, son’s mother. He told reporters this on Friday.
His girlfriend, Rios, died on 27 March due to epileptic seizures in California.
Howard said on a video conference call that he had had some things that had been challenging to manage in his personal life. His son’s mom, Melissa Rios, had passed away on 27 March a month and a half ago, and to understand how to talk to his 66-years-old son was not easy. It was not easy to talk about the whole situation with him.
I needed to attempt to disclose it to him in the best manner conceivable, Howard said. In any case, even the way that he’s as yet young, he, despite everything, wouldn’t be able to understand.
He added that then he was trying to find ways to bring analogies to life and his mom, and how she would always be there with him. He would not know how to deal with it.
Howard has five children. He said spending time with his children has given him comfort during an uneasy time.
Howard has attended the funeral of Rios with their son in Nevada. Because of the current situation, many funeral arrangements have been limited, and attendees are honored with social distancing measures.
