This week Dwyane Wade has gone from one ugly legal situation to another. In the latest chapter of his three-year custody battle with estranged wife Siohvaughn Wade, Mrs. Wade was briefly jailed Tuesday after not showing up for two scheduled court appearances on Monday.
(LeBron: Pay Attention)
Mr. Wade is seeking full custody of his two young boys and wants Mrs. Wade to undergo a court-ordered psychiatric examination. Meanwhile, last week Siohvaughn Wade filed a lawsuit against Dwyane Wade’s current girlfriend Gabrielle Union, claiming Union and her husband engaged in “sexual foreplay” near the couple’s children.
Can’t get any worse than that for Dwyane Wade, right?
Depending on your perspective, it can.
After missing two court appearances Monday and previously disregarding court orders involving the custody of her two children with Dwyane Wade, Siovaughn Wade was placed into custody at Chicago’s Cook County Jail today.
The estranged wife of the Miami Heat forward will have to pay a $10,000 bond for release, per an order from Cook County Circuit Judge Marya Nega.
Earlier today, Siohvaughn Wade’s attorney did attempt to block the jailing. Read more…
Monday saw another bizarre turn in the child custody case involving Dwyane Wade and his estranged wife Siohvaughn.
The couple, which has a divorce proceeding scheduled for September, was to appear in Chicago’s Cook County Circuit Court this morning to address the custody arrangement of their two-year-old and eight-year-old boys.
After Siohvaughn didn’t show for the morning hearing, Judge Marya Nega gave the mother of Dwyane Wade’s children an afternoon deadline to appear in court or face jail time. When that afternoon deadline passed, Nega ordered the Cook County Sheriff’s Dept. take Mrs. Wade into custody. Read more…
The wife of Dwyane Wade filed a lawsuit Tuesday in Chicago’s Cook County Circuit Court against the NBA player’s alleged mistress, actress Gabrielle Union.
In the court filing, Siohvaughn Wade alleged Union “engaged in sexual foreplay with Dwyane Wade” in the presence of Wade’s 8-year-old and 2-year-old sons while she visited the NBA player’s home in Miami.
Emotional distress of the children is subsequently claimed by Siohvaughn Wade, who is demanding over $50,000 in damages from Union.

The past few weeks have put a significant dent into the personal credibility of Dwyane Wade. A former business partner is suing him, claiming that Wade was a pothead who staged sex parties at his house, while his divorce from his wife Siohvaughn has gone from ugly to “War of the Roses” with her claiming (among other things) that he was a habitual cheater who gave her an STD.
At least that was her claim last month; she’s since quietly withdrawn it from the court proceedings. Apparently that wasn’t enough for Dwyane - imagine someone being upset for being accused of spreading STDs. So now the AP reports that he’s suing her and her two lawyers for defamation of character and asking for $50,000 from each. In a statement, he told the AP that the lawsuit was the only way to set the record straight:
Dwyane Wade, who has experienced his share of personal public relations disasters of late, had another bomb dropped on him this week by the PALM BEACH POST.
(Oh, how the mighty Father of the Year has fallen.)
In a story published on the PBP’s gossip site PAGE 2 LIVE, Jose Lambiet reports that a former business partner of Wade is accusing the married NBAer of hosting wild “sex parties”, smoking marijuana and botching numerous business deals.
Richard Von Houtman claims he provided a condo to Wade that the Miami Heat star soon turned into a personal party bungalow. Wade and his friends held numerous gatherings there, which featured sex with random women and marijuana use. Van Houtman said he twice saw Wade smoking a joint in the house but wasn’t in attendance for the orgies that Wade allegedly helped arrange.
“They (Wade and childhood friend Marcus Andrews) both made it clear to me how their goal in life is to have sex with as many women as possible,” Von Houtman said.
Ugly allegations for a guy who is currently damage-controlling a divorce settlement.
So if Wade is such a bad guy, why did Van Houtman develop a close relationship with him?
What do you give the wife who has everything? If you’re Dwyane Wade, you apparently give her everything else - such as gonorrhea, syphillis, chlamydia and the like.
(She might want to re-think that kiss)
Or so claims Dwyane’s wife Siohvaughn. In the middle of a nasty divorce battle, the better half of the Heat star for the past six years says her hubby has infected her with an STD. And that’s just the tip of the iceberg of Wade’s ice-cold behavior.
