Almost seven years after filing for divorce, Dwayne Wade is still at war with his ex-wife Siohvaughn Wade. In recently filed court documents, the former Mrs. Wade claimed that Dwayne Wade abused her physically, mentally and emotionally on top of giving her a sexually transmitted disease.
RadarOnline has the full story:
“I had known that Dwyane Wade had a temper and could become violent at times,” she claims in the documents, “but when we moved out of my mother’s home … into our own apartment with our infant son, the violence increased. This, however, was just the surface of the domestic violence Dwayne Wade would inflict upon me.”
“Dwyane Wade began to call me derogatory names more, throw things at me, hit me, take all my money from me, and even kicked me out of the house causing me not to have a place to live. He would often hit me, lock me in rooms and not allow me out, threaten to take my sons from me and frighten me by telling me he knows judges and that they are on his payroll and he can take the children from me at any time he wanted. The domestic violence and abuse continued on for several years in our family.”
Wade has denied the accusations and is suing Siohvaughn for defamation in another case.
“He picked up a garbage can made of marble stone and threw it at me. Dwyane Wade picked me up into the air above his head and slammed me down onto a large ottoman with such force that the ottoman broke into pieces when he slammed my body on it and banged my head against a marble bathroom floor.”
“Subsequently,” she claims, “I ended up having to be rushed to the emergency room of Christ Hospital and spent an entire week hospitalized.”
But it was about to get even worse. Siohvaughn claims in the documents that she discovered Dwyane was cheating on her, and when she got tested for STDs, she says she found out that he had given her one. Shortly after, on May 27, 2008, Dwyane filed for divorce.
Dwyane filed a motion to find her in contempt for letting the home fall risk to foreclosure, but Siohvaughn filed new documents last month explaining that she simply could not afford it. Adding to her financial troubles, she claims, various companies with which Dwyane has endorsements have failed to deposit his earnings into a court-ordered mutual account, instead routing the money straight to the NBA star in what she calls a “conspiracy.”
It seems like the drama between these two is never going to end and the ones that will suffer the most are their two little boys.
Personally I think Siohvaughn needs to put this issue to rest. As long as she is fighting her ex-husband and dragging him into court every other month she will never be able to heal from the devastation this divorce has obviously caused her. She should focus on renewing herself so that she can work her way back into the lives of her sons. They’re getting older and the last thing she wants is for them to resent her for all of this drama she’s causing.
As far as Gabrielle Union goes, either she truly loves this man with everything inside of her or money really will have you putting up with stuff you would have never put up with otherwise. With the news of Wade’s love child coming out and all this drama surrounding his ex-wife she deserves some type of prize for sticking around.
