Dwyane Wade Sued By Ex-Wife

D-Wade’s former wife is not a big fan of actress Gabrielle Union, to say the least. From the Miami Herald: “The estranged wife of Dwyane Wade has filed suit against his actress girlfriend Gabrielle Union, saying their relationship has caused the star Miami Heat guard’s two sons emotional distress. Dwyane Wade called the lawsuit ‘baseless and meritless,’ and Union issued a statement insisting the allegations are false. Siohvaughn Wade filed the suit in Chicago this week, adding yet another chapter to the lengthy divorce saga between the former high school sweethearts who separated more than two years ago. She and Dwyane Wade had two sons, ages 8 and 2, who are listed as plaintiffs … The lawsuit against Union is the latest twist in a nasty back-and-forth divorce battle that has waged for years. It alleges Union ‘engaged in sexual foreplay’ in front of the boys, which ‘severely inflicted the Plaintiffs emotionally and mentally.’ It also claims that the boys received ‘medium size gifts’ from Dwyane Wade for Christmas last year, while Union got ‘the biggest gift of all. Defendant has played sexually explicit roles, including roles as a seductress,’ the lawsuit reads. ‘Defendant has apparently decided to take her role beyond the films and into the home of a married man, Dwyane Wade, in the presence of his two minor children.’ Damages in excess of $50,000 are being sought by Siohvaughn Wade.”

    Shouldnt this headline read: Gabrielle Union sued by Dwyane Wade’s kids? That would be more like, you know, the truth.

  • http://slamonline.com Nick Gibson

    Wade only got me a smedium gift for Christmas, but you don’t see me filing any lawsuits.

  • Jake

    I wish my ex wife was suing Gabrielle Union for making sexual advances at me.Ah the life of an NBA player.

  • Diesel

    Seriously something needs to change with our justice system. People like this should have to pay fines for wasting the courts time.

  • Do Work

    i love how the size of christmas presents is being included in the lawsuit. what is a medium sized gift? xbox 360?

  • http://www.slamonline.com/ niQ

    I just read the article, it just sounds like Siohvaughn will sue anything that moves. She sounds crazy. It’s sad that it has come to this, but this is getting extremely out of hand.
    Siohvaughn Wade has alleged that Dwyane Wade abandoned his children and that he was “guilty of extreme and repeated mental cruelty” toward her.
    Last I heard, she wouldn’t let Wade see his own kids… And in regards to the guilty of mental cruelty, all I can imagine in this case is Wade chilling with Union somewhere and Siohvaughn stalking/watching in the distance. LOL
    She really needs to be “psychologically evaluated”

    You have to look deeper people. Why do you think the divorce is taking so long. She wants a larger piece of his new contract. So suit will drag it out long enough for him to sign his new contract and then BAM!!!! She gets a few million more. Classic gold digger 101.

    I would love to see Redman’s and Method Man’s reaction to this

    I can see this on an episode on Basketball Wives….would be fitting

    So, I ask all you Bulls fans: would you sign with the home team if you had this waiting for you? I think this is reason enuf to sign with Miami. ha.

  • riggs

    siohvaughn? merriam-webster should sue her parents

  • http://Www.slamonline.com Myles Brown

    Now THAT was funny. The rest of this is just sad. She’s either a liar or he’s a despicable human being. Either way, their kids are the only ones suffering.

  • http://minusthebars.blogspot.com Don

    Basically she is mad that Gabrielle Union took her husband. That’s how it all boils down.

    Not even ‘using the kids against their dad’ will help, either.

    It’s over. So get on with your life, Siohvaughn.

  • http://shawn-kemps-offspring.blogspot.com Cheryl

    All jokes aside, this lawsuit is not helping her case for gaining sole custody. Wade’s argument for the need for psychological counseling sounds about right. Like Myles, though, I truly feel for the boys. This must be having a negative emotional impact on them. I hope they can get this over with and move on for the kids.

  • http://www.slamonline.com/ niQ

    Of course her lawsuit is not helping her case, look at what else she mentioned: Union got bigger gifts than the boys….. LOL?

  • http://www.slamonline.com/ niQ

    Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned!

  • Diesel

    You know who I blame for all of this…freaking Carrie Underwood…singing songs about how its cool to trash the sh*t our of your boyfriend’s car if he uses you. “B*tches be crazy. You know this.”

  • underdog

    Siohvaughn is the best name I heard this week.

  • JoeMaMa

    They got together at age 15. She had his two kids. She rode hard for him. This isn’t some basketball groupie, but a jilted wife. She wants blood, and is getting it through the press. This is $50,000; that’s pocket change for her. This isn’t about money, but f*cking him up. COSIGN niQ

  • Diesel

    @JoeMama – she’s going to get a settlement for millions, if she hasn’t already (I’m not up to date on the divorce proceedings). That’s more money than she would have ever made on her own. She needs to thank her lucky stars that she has what she has and shut her @ss up.

  • funkdoc

    His wife needs to shut the f*ck up. If your ex-husband is dating Gabrielle Union, then you have to let it go…

  • funkdoc

    though I have to admit his ex-wife got hotter over the years. Always thought she was way to nerdy for an NBA superstar.

  • http://www.clutchfans.com/ Blue

    This is messed up…it’s not bad enough that your kids have to go through this already. Now they are in the paper because your dumb ass wants more money and you think parading them around as victims will help you get that. Not that I condone divorce in the least, but it’s becoming more and more obvious why she married him in the first place. She seems to use everything to increase her chance of getting paid. Why would you ever want to get married if most of the women seem to transform into this money hungry b*tch at the end of the day?

  • Diesel

    I don’t think she wants money. I think she just wants to ruin Wade’s name and embarrass him. But I just find it ridiculous that someone that has millions as a result of a relationship with someone can feel scorned by that person. She’s complaining about the size of her Christmas presents while the people who’s time she’s wasting actually have to go to work every day and are struggling to buy ANY Christmas gifts.

  • http://www.slamonline.com/ niQ

    Why is she even complaining about the Christmas gifts in the first place? The gifts were given in good intention, I don’t know what he bought his kids but I’m sure they liked it and weren’t asking for something worth $50 000. Why would you SUE someone for GIVING you something that’s not up to your expectations? Does that even make sense?
    Furthermore, how does she even know what Wade got Union without probing into HIS personal life?

  • http://www.kb24.com The Seed

    There’s probably truth to this wife’s scorn, you don’t know what Wade has done to her or said to her. I remember watching him getting drafted she was by his side, now since he is a famous athlete he needs a actress groupie like I been around town Union. Wade has changed since becoming Flash, you can see it in how he talks and acts, I can’t believe in all the women he can have he got an old football players ex wife, who does Tyler Perry movies and really is not that cute. BOOK IT!!!

  • http://slamonline.com Allenp

    Look, I can respect why the wife is upset.
    She’s been with Wade since high school, he used to crash at her family’s house when his mom was strung out. She’s been there with him since he was nobody, built him up, held his hand, took care of him.
    And then he start gallavanting around with models and what not, smelling himself, and suddenly she’s cast aside.
    That has to hurt, and I feel why she’s upset.
    But, she’s being petty and a little crazy now. I wish she had just divorced him, got her money right and moved on. I don’t support divorce, but if your husband has decided to leave you and be with another woman, what can you do.
    But, I guess her pain was too much.
    (Sidenote: If you read the story, you’ll see that Wade’s ex is accused of paying for stuff for some man she was seeing. I think it’s interesting how often we read about NBA players getting cuckolded by their wives. Gilbert ARenas, Shaq, possible Kobe and now Wade.)

  • Diesel

    You left out the worst one…Dirk.

  • http://shawn-kemps-offspring.blogspot.com Cheryl

    they probably got married way too young, and as they grew into adults, drifted apart. but because of money and fame, instead of just splitting and moving on, there’s this whole other thing hanging over the relationship that’s driving them both a little crazy. like I said before though, its really sad for the kids. it’s probably true that they’re both not putting these children’s emotional health first. it’s a sad story when you really get down to it.

  • http://dsfjklf.com Jukai

    You know, I admit that I’ll normally side against the players when it comes to something like this… but adding that Union had bigger christmas presents than her boys..? Uh… that’s really, really, really stretching it. Wow.

  • fut.

    I’m guessing she also sold these ‘medium’ presents to update the Dwyane Wade cardboard-cutout she roleplays with.

  • http://www.stuffwhitepeoplelike.com Tarzan Cooper

    I remember seeing her when wade was at marq and as a rookie. I said then, theyd split soon enough. Esp since he went to miami, hello ladies! She just wants to dirty his name. Remember when she tried to say he was havn orgies and gave her the clap or something? This seems like both are at fault but shes taking this too far. Is she sayin union blew wade iin front of kiddos? Or just danced a bit? I bet she is holding out for his new contract so she can get more. Greedy auger, she dont play in the nba, im sure she already as millions, she should be cool with that.

  • http://Www.slamonline.com Myles Brown

    Someone made an interesting point. Why would Wade EVER consider playing for Chicago when his ex wife lives there? Something tells me Pat Riley is the one behind all of this….

    Is SioVaunghn a wierd phonetic type spelling of the Irish name Siobhán? “Shiv-awn” being how it’s actually pronounced. Never seen that before. The kids…poor kids.

  • clos1881

    I saw on her on E! NBA Wives and she said they both cheated. They got together at 15 thats along time people change, and grow apart I know its hard, but she gotta move on like he has.

  • BostonBaller

    3 reasons why she is suing this time. #1 To break them up #2 get more money #3 To damage Unions career. Who sues the girlfriend? I’m sure Union isn’t going to her house on visits trying to show her up. The boys are probably up watching Union on tv and moms is pissed. Bitterness is not pretty. If Wade isn’t being a good father then go after him but stop with the nuttiness. This divorce has been ongoing for way too long and YES I believe her lawyers are smart enough to prolong this long enough for the windfall contract.

  • BostonBaller

    Wade should sign a contract for $10 for 2 years, that would snap her chicken head back on straight. In the back room he agrees to $10 for 2 yrs with an agreement that they would come back to the table in 2 years to restructure the contract. That would give him enough time to settle the divorce with minimum $$$ damage and still get himself set for life after life. Of course he takes care of the kids with whatever he has.

  • http://stapledesign.com Spaceship Jay

    Co-sign Allenp. I rather she had kept it classy and seen someone to let her vent and support her in her pain.

  • vtrobot

    @ Flud: Yes, it is. D. Wade’s ex doesn’t use the Irish spelling.
