Dwight Howard already has a love in Los Angeles, as it’s being reported that Howard is dating R&B singer Ciara.

A source is claiming that the two have been trying to keep their romance a secret, until Howard feels that the two are really serious about their relationship.

The source also goes on to say that Howard is very conscious on what people think of him, after he held the Orlando Magic hostage only to leave for the bright lights of Hollywood to join the L.A. Lakers.

Ciara, in the past, has been linked with N.Y. Knicks star Amare Stoudemire.

Hopefully Ciara is in it for the love…. and now for the media attention.
