For the past several years, Dwyane Wade’s ex-wife Siohvaughn Funches-Wade has been trying hard to take him down by slandering his name across the media, but now, shocking court documents claims Gabrielle Union‘s husband-to-be might be a low down douche bag!
According to court docs, (obtained by RadarOnline), Siohvaughn reveals that Wade showed her a different side of him shortly after they got married on May 18, 2002.
“I had known that Dwyane Wade had a temper and could become violent at times,” she claims in the documents, “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,” she claims, “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.”
Wade has however denied the accusations and is reportedly suing [Siohvaughn] for defamation of character in another case.
“I tried to leave Dwyane Wade, but when I did, he made sure I did not have access to my own home and he cut off all my bankcards and denied me access to any money,” she continues. “This exerting of power and control has continued to this day.”
In one incident, she claims, “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,” she claims, “I ended up having to be rushed to the emergency room of Christ Hospital and spent an entire week hospitalized.”
Here’s the shocker! Siohvaughn claims in the documents that she discovered Dwyane was cheating on her, and when she got tested for STDs, she says shefound out that he had given her one. Shortly after, on May 27, 2008, Dwyane filed for divorce.
“The marriage has ended but Dwyane Wade’s abuse has not ceased,” Siohvaughn claims in the documents, “and through the court system he continues to use his money and influence to exert power and control over me.”
Indeed, Siohvaughn claims that Dwyane gave her attorney hundreds of thousands of dollars to accept a settlement that she did not approve. And as part of that settlement, she was awarded the couple’s marital home in Illinois, but ordered to refinance the mortgage on the property. A mortgage she has since failed to pay and claims she was denied by several banks for the refinancing.
Radar Online adds, Dwyane has since then filed a motion to find her in contempt for letting the home fall risk to foreclosure, but Siohvaughn filed new documents last month explaining that she simply could not afford it. Adding to her financial troubles, she claims, various companies with which Dwyane has endorsements have failed to deposit his earnings into a court-ordered mutual account, instead routing the money straight to the NBA star in what she calls a “conspiracy.”
The judge sided with Siohvaughn, denying Dywane’s motion to find her in contempt.
The former couple, who has been dealing with a messy divorce and child custody battle, heads to court on February 28 to discuss selling the home or refinancing.
And last year, Gabrielle and Dwyane took a break in their relationship, and during that break, the 32-year-old Miami Heat baller decided to have some fun– knocking up a female in the process. So these new allegations aren’t looking too good for the baller.
Maybe that’s why Gabby recently revealed that she and Dwyane will be signing a prenuptial agreement before the day of their wedding.
