Siovaughn Wade Says She Hasn't Seen Her Sons Since July

D-Wade’s Ex-Wife Siohvaughn Says She Hasn’t Seen Her Sons Since July, Claims He Hit Their Oldest Son And Wishes Dwyane Never Got Drafted By The NBA!!!

- By Bossip Staff

When Wade was just 20 and at college in Marquette, Wisconsin, Siohvaughn fell pregnant with their first son, Zaire. Even though his coaches suggested he be put forward for the draft in 2002, Siohvaughn pleaded with him to wait, she said.

‘I’d practically begged him,’ she said. ‘We had just got married and had a child. I wanted time to settle, to build as a family. I asked him to choose between his family or him and he chose his family.’

The following year, he chose his career. While Siohvaughn said she willed him to do well, she was ‘terrified’ about how it would affect their marriage, despite her husband’s assurances.

Her fears were justified: After the draft in 2003, he signed a three-year $8.5 million contract and he was thrown into the world of celebrity – and his marriage began to crack.

‘When [NBA commissioner] David Stern called his name, that changed everything,’ she said. ‘Our circumstances were so drastically different. We went from living in in this two-bedroom apartment in Marquette to these places overlooking the ocean in Miami. Everybody said yes to us.

‘I was seduced, too. I lost sight of some of my values. The further I got into that lifestyle, the further I got away from God. I just woke up sooner than he did.’

Siohvaughn said she saw her husband slipping from her as he revelled in his fame and fortune – staying out all night, surrounding himself with new friends and arguing with her, she said.

‘I was very sad because this was not the person I dated,’ she said. ‘This was my very best friend and I couldn’t reach him anymore – without question it was because of the money.

‘I think Dwyane had been rejected a lot when he was younger and then suddenly people started cheering and clapping and wanting to be around him. I think he overindulged in that. It was disgusting to me.’

He did ask me to have another child,’ she said. ‘I was very hesitant to do so, not because I didn’t want another child but because there was so much that Dwyane had swept under the rug.

‘There were so many things that were so serious, like other women. It’s my belief that that was happening. But it was part of the lifestyle – going out late, travelling, being with different people.’

In 2006, she gave birth to their second son, Zion, but the excitement of his birth did little to save the struggling marriage. Wade’s anger towards her escalated, she said, at one point she ended up falling onto a marble floor following a heated argument while she was pregnant.

She recounted the alleged incident from 2006, when she was in her first trimester with Zion. When she woke in the middle of the night, she found her husband gone from their home.

‘He would say to me: “This is the lifestyle. Look at the house you live in, look at the car you drive”,’ she said. ‘There was no car he could’ve bought me at that point that could have made up for the disrespect. When he came home, I told him as much.

I remember my back and head hitting the marble floor in the bathroom and furniture breaking into four pieces and shattering by my body.

‘I tried to call the police but the violence turned up a notch. I went for the cordless phone; Dwyane came and grabbed it and threw the phone and it literally broke. I knew that telling on him wasn’t going to go well.’

Okay wait, so did he push her on the floor or throw her on the floor or did she fall? You can’t just say someone abused you and then suddenly get vague on the details. Still, what’s he doing throwing phones and breaking them?

Do you believe D-Wade really acted up like this?
