The news broke yesterday that NBA baller Dwyane Wade’s wife filed a lawsuit against the Miami Heat player’s girlfriend, actress Gabrielle Union. The Chicago Sun-Times reports that Wade’s wife claims Union “engaged in sexual foreplay with Wade” in front of Wade’s 8-year-old and 2-year-old sons during an unsupervised visit at Wade’s Miami home according to the suit filed Tuesday in the Cook County Circuit Court.

Most prominent in the suit is the claim by Wade’s wife that Dwyane Wade allegedly orchestrated a meeting during a visitation between Union and his two sons formally introducing Union as his “girlfriend” and stated, “that is why your mom and I are going to divorce,” according to the suit. Mrs. Wade claimed the sexual foreplay in front of the boys and the orchestrated meeting meant to introduce the children to their future stepmother caused emotional distress. Reports reveal the older child sought medical treatment for stress, anxiety, nervous habits, headaches and “significant” hair loss causing bald spots according to the suit.

Siohvaughn Wade and her children are seeking more than $50,000 from Union at a trail.

This seems to be a new legal trend and perhaps a precedent for the law books. Last month a North Carolina wife successfully sued her husband’s mistress for 9 million dollars citing “severe emotional distress.” Siohvaughn Wade’s suit of Union for only $50, 000 suggests she is making more a statement rather than seeking funds, which she obviously doesn’t need.

Siohvaughn and Dwyane Wade were together since they were 15 years-old and have been separated for some time. Their divorce is in proceedings according to the suit filed.

Is this fair? Is Gabrielle Union really the cause of emotional distress here?

Or is Siohvaugn Wade seeking a way to get back at Dwyane Wade for leaving her for Gabrielle Union?

    I never pity the hoe or “other woman” i don’t blame her…she has the right to act out if she wants to…they had children together any respectable woman wouldn’t get involved with a married man…women like Gabrielle, and Alicia keys are horrible…never pity the hoes..and karma is a B….

    To keep you from the evil woman,
    From the flattering tongue of a seductress.
    Do not lust after her beauty in your heart,
    Nor let her allure you with her eyelids.
    For by means of a harlot
    A man is reduced to a crust of bread;
    And an adulteress will prey upon his precious life.
    Can a man take fire to his bosom,
    And his clothes not be burned?
    Can one walk on hot coals,
    And his feet not be seared?
    So is he who goes in to his neighbor’s wife;
    Whoever touches her shall not be innocent.

    Proverbs 6:24-29

    Bottom line–people today, men and women, have low moral standards and this is the core of the problem. I know a lot of people are not going to like this but my personal belief is in Jesus Christ and his teachings. We all fall short but I sincerely do try to follow the teachings of Christ as much as possible–including “judge not lest ye be judged.” That being said, I waited until I was married to have sex and my husband (who I am divorcing) cheated on me with several “skanky hoes” (LOL sorry, just had to take the opp to call them out anonymously) But seriously, it amazes me that people who generally appear to have lose morals and/or follow no particular code of ethics (which is the majority of us), then pick and chose from a moral laundry list, those actions which they and others “should” follow–of course this always serves the purpose of the “self.” Like, women think that it’s OK to have premarital sex but it’s not OK for another woman to sleep with their husband when they’re separated because they’re legally married. It doesn’t work like that people!!! When we start to bend the “rules” (whichever set you chose to follow) to meet whatever works for us on a given day rather than committing to upholding a common standard of morality (like the Bible or Quran or whatever you believe in) you get the world we live in where people do what suites them at the time (and of course this changes from day to day, week to week, and year to year–even second to second) then, EVERYONE gets hurt…eventually. So, I feel sorry for all involved in the mess. But this is just the way it is…man and woman rebel against God/Love to our own suffering and demise. Let’s all do better. Peace and Love!!!
