In what should have been the biggest night of his NBA career, Los Angeles Lakers star Dwight Howard appeared to be dealing with some personal issues.
The eighth-time NBA All-Star took to Instagram Live to celebrate with its 2.9 million followers, soon after the Lakers beat the Miami Heat 106-93 in Game 5 of the NBA Finals to secure the franchise’s 17th championship Beat.

Howard was seen jumping up and down in the team’s locker room when he accidentally opened a private text conversation that appeared between him and a contact called my heartbeat.
“So tell me,” says the person in the conversation.

Howard’s response is covered by the live video, but the woman’s response in the text is “Ah must be true.”
The Lakers Center responds, “You have something coming about me and I don’t even know.”
“Have fun tonight,” she says, in which Howard responds to “what friends” before ending Live.

It is not immediately known between whom the conversation took place, but Howard has been engaged to Te’a Cooper of the Los Angeles Sparks since 2019.
Neither Cooper nor Howard have addressed the situation publicly, but the 23-year-old former boiler Lady Bear member posted several pictures on Instagram celebrating her fiance’s victory.
