Dwyane Wade’s Wife is Suing Gabrielle Union Over ‘Emotional Distress’Published by Dior Noir on Wednesday, May 5, 2010 at 3:00 pm.
Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned!
Exhibit A: Siohvaughn Wade, Dwyane Wade’s estranged wife, who is currently filing a lawsuit against his girlfriend Gabrielle Union and seeking $50,000 in damages on claims that Gabrielle’s conduct around her two sons has caused them emotional distress.
According to the Chicago Sun-Times, Siohvaughn’s lawsuit claims that Gabby “engaged in sexual foreplay with Dwyane Wade” in front of Wade’s 8-year-old and 2-year-old sons while on an unsupervised visitation to the basketball star’s Miami home. In addition, the suit claims Dwyane orchestrated a meeting to introduce the children to their “future stepmother” (or Gabby) which caused them emotional distress (they say the older child has sought medical treatment for stress and anxiety and is seeking court-mandated mental evaluations). Other allegations in the suit: Wade’s oldest son was allowed to play unsupervised in or around the Miami home’s pool at night and the younger son almost drowned in his father’s care.
There are strong accusations going on there and already Dwyane and Gabby have called BS. Dwyane made this statement to TMZ, “I am shocked that Siohvaughn Wade has brought this baseless and merit-less lawsuit in the name of our children against Gabrielle Union. I am deeply saddened and disappointed that Siohvaughn has used our sons once again as pawns and is now lashing out at Gabrielle, who is an innocent party. It is clear that this is a desperate attempt to retaliate against me for seeking sole custody of our children and requesting that the court have her undergo a psychiatric examination.” He concluded, “My primary concern is my children and actions such as this only inflame the situation and are harmful to their well being.”
Gabby’s reps also denied the allegations and told TMZ they apologize to the court system for having to deal, “with erroneous claims when there are real victims who should be receiving the legal attention they need.”
What started off as a really cute tale of two high school sweethearts is ending in an ugly divorce battle for Dwyane and Siohvaughn Wade. Hopefully both parties can put the drama aside and do what’s in the best interest of the children.
