D-Wade Divorce and Allegations Getting Uglier

- By Bossip Staff

Dwyane Wade is turning the tables on his divorcing wife and suing her for messing up his good name:

Dwyane Wade sued his estranged wife and two of her lawyers Wednesday over accusations the Miami Heat star contracted a sexually transmitted disease through an extramarital affair. In the lawsuit, a copy of which was obtained by The Associated Press, Wade is seeking at least $50,000 in damages from each defendant. Siohvaughn Wade said last month the player infected her with an unspecified disease in 2007. Weeks later, she withdrew the claim from the court hearing the divorce case for unknown reasons. That wasn’t enough to satisfy the 2006 NBA finals MVP, who said her allegations not only defamed him, but caused “embarrassment” and “humiliation” along with damaging future earning potential. “It has been difficult….. to see false allegations, rumors and gossip repeatedly discussed in public about my personal life,” Dwyane Wade said in a statement released to the AP. “I had no other choice but to file this action in order to clear my name.” Wade declined further comment. The All-Star guard also lists attorneys Michael Berger and Dorene Marcus as defendants, along with their firms, contending they wronged him in the same manner as his estranged wife. The suit was filed in Chicago, where the divorce proceedings have gone on for nearly a year. “Mr. Wade has been the victim of a reckless campaign by Siohvaughn Wade and her lawyers to publicly humiliate him and damage his reputation,” Joe Power, an attorney representing the Heat player, said in a statement to the AP. “To clear the public record from these false and malicious allegations, we have filed a defamation suit in court … and will seek appropriate compensation for damages.” Siohvaughn Wade’s claim made “by and through her attorneys, and disseminated by various print and online media throughout the world placed plaintiff Dwyane Wade in a false light,” according to the lawsuit.

“We believe there’s absolutely no merit to it,” Berger said. “I believe that the lawsuit will get dismissed. It seems interesting to me Wade would file a lawsuit like this when he supposedly wants to keep a low profile. This lawsuit will put his entire private and social life in full view of the public.” Berger added that even though the original claim by Siohvaughn Wade was withdrawn, “Mrs. Wade has stood behind her allegations.” In the allegations filed in January, along with the claims of affairs and being infected with an STD, Siohvaughn Wade said her husband abandoned their children and goes weeks at a time without speaking to them. She added that the paternal relationship was so severed that her younger son cries uncontrollably when he’s around and he does not recognize Dwyane Wade as his father. Siohvaughn Wade’s withdrawal of the claim wouldn’t prevent her from resubmitting it to court at a later date. The divorce proceedings are not expected to end anytime soon.

Dwyane better hire that same fix-it guy the Chris Brown’s camp is looking for, because his name and personal life are officially mud.

    Knifty, just because you contribute to charities doesn’t mean you respect your soon to be ex-wife enough to settle a divorce without the both of you putting your business in the street. Public v. private persona. I dont know him or her, but I think its ridiculous that they cannot settle this outside of the streets of public opinion for the Lord’s sake they have children together and have been together for a long time prior to being married, so I have heard, so why not grow up and act like you give a uck enough not to embarass yourselves, your children and families. DANG!

    What happened to the D. Wade that said winning the ring was great, but came second to the day his wife gave him his son? What happened to the D. Wade that always talked about how much he loved his wife and kids? Thw whole thing is sad.I hope they can go back and remember who they fell in love with and try to handle this with class…but I think it may be a little late for that.

  • d o double g

    If he gave her herpes, she should throw his car keys out the window and call 911.


    For some REAL mental stimulation, you can go to Seattle Drum and Bass Forum.

    But….that site may be way over ya’ll heads.

    This might just be right up your alley. Talking about dumb shit that has no effect on the world, or our own lives.



  • ShavonDenise

    She needs to just let it go. It messed up that when a dude get his paper he forgets the people that were there in the beginning. At the same time your first love is the hardest to say goodbye to because thats all you know yet it might not be meant to be. Its a catch 22 but there is a way that you handle things and its obvious that DWade aint handle it right. Guys need to realize that the mother of their children and the one they had a commitment with deserves more. If you want to be hard on the chicks you need to stay with the trojans and single because having babies and selling dreams is not cool.

  • deesac

    there no way to prove he gave her a STD why are blackwoman so so anger and always trying to railroad a brother. Wether they got one that has money or no money, and then you say why are we dating out our race come on are you serious

  • Black Beauty

    This situation has gotten out of hand. D. Wade has gotten brand new. I really used to like him, but the money has turned him into a first class ass. This girl was there when he was a nobody. He was not a big name in high school or college until his junior year. His family was broke as hell and his mom was a crackhead. This girl and her family where there when no one else was, and this is how he repays her. Money is really the root of all evil. Michael Jordan had his sh** with him, but the brother settled his divorce with class. SMDH

  • LawdhavMercythisshitis real

    he may not be a bad guy but he is a young rich cute black nba star and u can say all u want he gets into some nasty shit pussy thrown ur way every sec u turn around that nigga is done with reg sex he b into some freaky


    Well the only way to prove her wrong is to get tested so why don’t both of them get tested then tell us whether or not they have it. lol!! It still won’t matter because Dwayne will still have a whole lot of hoes letting him get it in. lol!!

  • major

    That’s right D-Wade dont stand for this BS

  • ari

    so yall are attacking him for attempting to save his character, which at the moment is in good standing?

    this bullsht happens all the time, in order to secure a win the wife plays up all the stereotypes of the career.

    who doesn’t believe nba players cheat and do dirty sht? all she had to say is he cheated and he’s labeled as a cheater


    D-Wade STFU!

    That’s what you get for cheating! Siohvaughn should drag your ho ass in the mud where you belong.

  • *Treasure*

    She should of left that out of the divorce proceedings from the start, even if it is true. She ruined her name in the process of disgracing D Wade. It is foolish to tell the public that you contracted an STD during the marriage. That should be discussed behind closed doors with your future ex husband, and no one else.

  • 2dimplzs

    I absolutely believe his wife. Just because she retracted the statement doesn’t mean it’s not true. She said she still stands by it. Ever since D-Wade got drated to Miami he was out clubbin’ from day one and there were video and pictures showing him and his entourage pointing out girls to come back to his hotel room!! That exposed him as a dog for me right away. And I’m sorry, he’s been messing around with Gabrielle Union on the low for quite some time before him and his wife separated so what does that say about him? I have zero respect for him and he is just another example like Kobe, MJ, Gary Payton and every other cheating professional athlete, that you can’t always believe the “Good guy, boy next door” persona that the media and NBA like to create for certain players. What really irkes me about all of this is him cutting off his wife and kids from money and him not seeing his boys. Regardless of what is going on between you and your soon to be ex spouse you still see and take care of your kids!!! I can’t respect him for that or his free loving STD sharing ways!
