From Black Voices — B’ball superstar Dwyane Wade is “saddened” and “shocked” that his estranged wife, Siohvaughn, has made claims that he is damaging their children by engaging in sexual foreplay in front of them with his girlfriend, Gabrielle Union.

Wade, who is in the throes of a rather messy divorce, told TMZ:

“I am shocked that Siohvaughn Wade has brought this baseless and meritless lawsuit in the name of our children against Gabrielle Union.” The Miami Heat guard went on to state, “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.”

The soon-to-be ex-missus has accused Union of also being neglectful with her sons and is seeking more than $50,000 in damages from her. Union’s camp is outraged by the venomous allegations and has apologized to the court system for having to hash out such false claims:

“Gabrielle apologizes to the Circuit Court of Cook County, Illinois, for tying them up with erroneous claims, when there are real victims who should be receiving the legal attention they need. Each and every allegation made is entirely false,” said C. Anthony Mulrain, an attorney for Union.

The divorce case has been scheduled for June, however, there is a motion in place to have the date pushed back to September.

Wade’s lawyers have reportedly made several moves to settle with his wife’s legal camp, but they have refused.

It’s also possible that the court could rule on Wade’s custody plea before the divorce case goes to trial or is settled.

Meanwhile, there are other huge fish to fry. Wade has to deal with a few other legal entanglements that involve failed businesses. He will also opt out of the final year of his contract with the Heat and become a free agent July 1. He tells NBA News, “It’s going to be a very busy summer, challenging summer and important summer for my life off the court and on the court,” Wade said last week. “I have big decisions ahead of me. It’s not easy.”

On the flip side, Siohvaughn also has a little legal mess to clean up. Apparently, the young woman also recently filed a libel-slander lawsuit against former friend Andrea Williams, who claimed in a deposition that Siohvaughn bought a male lover, whom she’d an affair with from 2004 through 2007, a car and a motorcycle. It is alleged that Siohvaughn threatened to find a gun and shoot Wade and voluntarily entered an Illinois hospital to deal with her anger-related issues.

To make matters worse, Siohvaughn also lost her divorce legal reps, Nottage and Ward LLP, in Chicago due to “an impasse” and “irreconcilable differences” between them all.

As the plot thickens…stay tuned!

    This whole situation is a hot mess and filled with so much unnecessary drama. I mean really at this point nothing can’t repair their image in the media so they all need to stop trying to save face and place the blame on each other(because they are ALL to blame at this point). Personally, I think underneath all the bitterness, hate, anger and drama that these two still care for each other on some level making this divorce messy. Hopefully, they move pass their egos and hurt feeling and end this divorce quickly as possible or reach a settlement/agreement were their kids are concerned because they are the ones that are suffering on the so called “adults” immature and foolish behavior

    Is Dwayne Wade going to marry Gabrielle Union? I don’t think so. The classy thing to do would have been to “be friends” and wait until the messy divorce is finalized. We live in modern times but class is never out of style. Letting a man know you are not available until his house is in order gives him room to respect you. Now you are just another woman he stepped out with. And if, despite the odds against it, you do get married, you won’t have anything to say when he steps out on you. It’s a desperate move to take a man before he is truly an eligible bachelor, no matter what he says about his own freedom.
