I have a problem with this for one singular reason.
Siohvaugh Wade brought this lawsuit against Gabrielle Union on the behalf of her sons. Her sons are 2 and 8 why is she filling lawsuits for them because D Wade got a new woman? That is crazy and reeks of a desparate bitter woman. I don’t care what D Wade did to her she shouldn’t be putting her kids in the middle of it. The Chicago Sun Times has more on this lawsuit:
Another lawsuit Siohvaughn Wade filed today on behalf of her 8-year-old and 2-year-old sons seeks damages against film actress Gabrielle Union on the grounds that she broke up the marriage.
The lawsuit against Union — who has starred in the films “Bring It On,” “Deliver Us from Eva,” and “Bad Boys II” — says Union “apparently decided to take her role” of seductress “beyond the films and into the home of a married man … in the presence of his two minor children.”
Are you kidding me?
I ask you again.
Are you kidding me?
This is beyond ridiculous. Are we dealing with grown ups or 5 year olds? If you want to get a divorce fine, if you want to fight for custody of your kids fine, if you want to make crude comments against your husband’s new boo fine, but please keep the kids out of it.
It makes Siohvaughn Wade look like an unfit parent. If you want to go to court for your divorce and say Gabrielle Union broke up your marriage that is within your right, but to file lawsuits against her and have the audacity to do it in the name of your kids is insane.
Ben Roethlisberger is not the only one in need of a mental evaluation.
I got on the BSO Twitter to ask some lawyers how can this legally be done. I was told in some states there is something called “Alienation of Affection” where a wife can sue the mistress for damages if she broke up the marriage.
Here is some more info from Wikipedia:
At common law, alienation of affections is a tort action brought by a deserted spouse against a third party alleged to be responsible for the failure of the marriage.
Alienation of affections was first codified as a tort by the New York state legislature in 1864, and similar legislation existed in many U.S. states in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Since 1935, this tort has been abolished in 42 states. Alienation is, however, still recognized in Hawaii, Illinois, North Carolina, Mississippi, New Mexico, South Dakota, and Utah.
To succeed on an alienation claim, the plaintiff has to show that (1) the marriage entailed love between the spouses in some degree; (2) the spousal love was alienated and destroyed; and (3) defendant’s malicious conduct contributed to or caused the loss of affection.
You learn something new everyday.
Siohvaughn Wade claims actress Gabrielle Union “engaged in sexual foreplay” in front of Wade’s 8-year-old and 2-year-old sons while on a visit to the basketball star’s Miami home, according to a suit filed Tuesday in Cook County Circuit Court.
The older child has sought medical treatment for stress and anxiety, has developed nervous habits, headaches, and “significant” hair loss causing bald spots, according to the suit. The boy is currently seeking court-mandated mental evaluations at the University of Chicago, the suit said.
