Dwyane Wade Wants Custody of 2 Sons from Estranged Wife Siohvaughn Wade
First off I thought he was already divorce, secondly I hate when the kids are involved in a battle between parents.
Just sad all away around. ESPN has the story (quicker than the Big Ben story by the way) and here are the details:
“For more than two years, I have tried to make peace with Siohvaughn concerning our divorce and custody of our kids,” Wade said in a statement released to The AP. “I no longer believe that’s possible. Siohvaughn has consistently attempted to interrupt or prevent me from having visitation time with our boys.”
Siohvaughn Wade’s behavior “has made it evident that she is unstable, dishonest, unbalanced, unwilling to accept responsibility for her actions, not of good character, and therefore, unfit to be a custodial parent,” according to the petition.
Siohvaughn Wade’s attorneys did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
High school sweethearts whose romance continued to college at Marquette and ultimately to marriage, Dwyane and Siohvaughn Wade have not gotten along in years.
In January 2009, Siohvaughn Wade claimed, among other things, that her husband abandoned his children, that they were frightened to be around him, that he was “guilty of extreme and repeated mental cruelty” toward his wife.
Dwyane Wade has denied each charge.
“I’m sorry to say that many of the things she has done during our marriage and throughout this divorce have convinced me that it is not in our children’s best interest that she have custody,” Wade said in his statement to The AP. “As a result, I have decided to fight for custody of our children.”
The documents obtained by The AP include police reports from when Siohvaughn Wade called authorities to the couple’s home in a Miami suburb on Christmas Eve 2008 as Dwyane Wade arrived there to see his children.
They also include claims made by Andrea Williams, a former friend of the couple, that Siohvaughn Wade paid for trips to Las Vegas and other places, bought a man she was romantically involved with as far back as 2004 a car and a motorcycle, threatened to find a gun and shoot her husband, and voluntarily entered an Illinois hospital to deal with anger-related issues.
“I feel our children’s health and safety are at stake,” Dwyane Wade said. “Our two children are my top priority.”
That was definitely an interesting read.
Like I sad very sad because they were college sweethearts and when you get in the league it not only changes the player, but a lot of times it changes the woman he is with.
Not making any judgments on who is right or wrong I just hope they work it out for the betterment of the children that are involved because they are innocent victims in all of this childish and petty behavior.
