Things keep getting messier and messier for Dwyane Wade.
In court papers filed just two days after Gabrielle Union and Dwyane Wade announced their engagement, Dwyane’s ex Siohvaughn Wade accuses him of abuse and fraud. Not only that, but she’s suing him AND his sponsors.
According to Radar Online, Siohvaughn claims that Dwyane physically abused her during their marriage, and at one point she ended up up in the hospital for a week at his hands.
In a lawsuit filed in the Circuit Court of Cook County in Chicago, Siohvaughn says:
“I had known that Dwyane Wade had a temper and could become violent at times, but when we moved out of my mother’s home … into our own apartment with our infant son, the violence increased. This, however, was just the surface of the domestic violence Dwayne Wade would inflict upon me.”
“As Dwyane Wade’s income increased, his arrogance and pride increased as well. Dwyane Wade began to call me derogatory names more, throw things at me, hit me, take all my money from me, and even kicked me out of the house causing me not to have a place to live
As a means of controlling me, and as part of Dwyane Wade’s domestic violence pattern, he would often hit me, lock me in rooms and not allow me out, threaten to take my sons from me and frighten me by telling me he knows judges and that they are on his pay roll and he can take the children from me at any time he wanted. The domestic violence and abuse continued on for several years in our family.”
She even gave an example, saying:
“He picked up a garbage can made of marble stone and threw it at me. Dwyane Wade picked me up into the air above his head and slammed me down onto a large ottoman with such force that the ottoman broke into pieces when he slammed my body on it and banged my head against a marble bathroom floor.”
“Subsequently, I ended up having to be rushed to the emergency room of Christ Hospital and spent an entire week hospitalized.”
In regards to the alleged fraud, she says that his corporate sponsors, including T-Mobile, Staples and his shoe company are depositing his paychecks in a separate bank account — NOT their court-ordered mutual bank account.
