Custody Victory Brings Dwyane Wade Peace of Mind

With good news on his mind, DWade had one of his best games of the season over the weekend, after winning full custody of his two boys. From the Miami Herald: “A Chicago court awarded Wade sole custody of his two children Friday. Wade announced the news to his teammates after Saturday’s game, in which Wade had 28 points, nine assists, five rebounds and five blocks. ‘I heard the best news I could possibly hear,’ Wade said. ‘So I was like, ‘I’m going to go out there and play free and enjoy it.’ Wade has been divorced from Siohvaughn Wade since last June. The financial settlement remains unresolved. Wade’s sons arrived in Miami on Friday. ‘My life changed in a huge way,’ Wade said. ‘Mentally, I’ve been preparing for it for over a year now. To me, it’s bigger than that. For me, it shows a lot of people that you need to fight to be in your kids’ lives sometimes. You fight until you can’t fight any more. That’s all I was trying to be, a father in his kids’ lives.’ His private life in order after a long legal process, Wade can now dedicate all of his attention to the basketball court, where the Heat is working to recover from its five-game losing streak.”

    good wade, now go get some CLOSE GAME VICTORIES.

    Let me get this straight he got his kids back but dont fool yourself if you think he will be raising them. He is on road alot not much time at home. So a family member or a nanny will be watching the kids. Wade is selfish taking his kids away from their mother. All kids when they are young need their moms

    I’m happy for him man, you can tell thats probably been something thats been weighing on him. @adam the court rule the young lady mentally unstable. I completely agree every child should have their mother, heck every child should have both parents….just a pretty unfortunate situation. You have to have a little bit of sorrow for he

  • Riggs

    if the court rule against the mother then you know something is up, 90 percent of the time they rule for the mother even if the ruling looks like it’s against her. and @heartlandG: no disrespect but if you want to win that custody battle you need to represent a little more grammar and vocabulary man.

    Wade’s baby momma is crazy as hell. Glad the court awarded him sole custody.

    Every child needs a momma, and every child needs a daddy.
    I’m sad they couldn’t make their union work, and that they couldn’t figure out an equitable way to raise their kids together. This isn’t a “win” for anyone.

  • Stanley

    Every child needs a father, but they need there mother, for a pro-athlete it be great if a compromise wld been worked out.

    I agree with Allenp. Even if the relationship between DWade and his wife didn’t work out, it’s still ideal for kids to have both parents. If his ex was deemed ‘unfit’ then I guess giving ‘sole’ custody to him is a better alternative to ‘joint’ custody with an unfit mother. But the kids won’t miss her any less.

    man those kids r lucky…gabrielle union can be my new mom any day!!!

    @kobebestfriend….tuck me to sleep, make me soup when I’m sick, fix my breakfast in the morning……Gabby Gabby Gabby…..DWade wins no matter what the score is…PERIOD

  • iLL wiLL

    Wade’s baby mom’s was trippin! There are documents made public now from a woman (a friend of the baby moms) who basically told the courts Siovaughan was cheating and using DWade’s money for another dude. SMH.

    Gabby Union is certainly an upgrade though.

    Custody Restraining order against Eboy brings Dwyane Wade peace of mind. Fixed.

    Nothing to do with this post but I’ve seen nothing on this on Slam. R.I.P. Wes Leonard and Robert Garza. Two young men taken far too early.

  • rich
