    D-Wade's divorce takes a tawdry turn
    BY JOAN FLEISCHMAN
    joanfleischman@yahoo.com
    Heating up: Miami Heat guard Dwyane Wade's divorce from wife Siohvaughn, his high school sweetheart. In legal papers, she alleges he abandoned his children, committed adultery, and infected her with an unspecified sexually transmitted disease. She wants the names of ''all of his sexual partners'' during their six-year marriage.

    Dwyane petitioned for the divorce last May in Cook County, Ill. They wed in Chicago on May 18, 2002.

    Dwyane's Windy City attorney, James Pritikin, issued a statement: ``These malicious allegations are absolutely false and we look forward to the opportunity to dispute them in court.''

    Dwyane turns 27 on Saturday. He and Siohvaughn, 27, have two boys, Zaire, a first-grader who will be 7 next month, and Zion, 1. Siohvaughn moved back to Chicago with the kids last year.

    Dwyane's Heat salary is $14,410,581, according to published reports. He hauls in millions more from major endorsements such as Gatorade and Converse. He has a dozen vehicles, including four Cadillacs, four Mercedes-Benzes and a Maybach, court papers say.

    The All-Star has been romantically linked to actress Gabrielle Union, 36, once married to former Jacksonville Jaguar Chris Howard.

    From Siohvaughn's pleading: ``Dwyane has dissipated substantial sums of marital property including . . . buying his mother a $2 million church; placing substantial sums of money in an account with another woman; providing numerous friends and family members with unfettered access to accounts with hundreds of thousands of dollars of marital funds from which they made substantial withdrawals . . .''

    Meanwhile, she says, he cut her off financially.

    Dwyane, named a ''Father of the Year'' in 2007 by the National Father's Day Committee, has gone ''months'' without seeing his boys, Siohvaughn says. His ''failure to spend time with them . . . has resulted in the children at times being afraid of him; in fact, Zion . . . does not recognize or know Dwyane.'' She wants sole custody, and support.

    She also says she has suffered ''grievous physical, emotional and mental injury'' from the STD, diagnosed in the fall of '07. (The infection is not HIV or a ''killer thing,'' sources say.) Dwyane and his ''paramour or paramours'' are liable, she alleges.

    'Dwyane must disclose the identity of all of his sexual partners during the parties' marriage,'' says her counter-petition, prepared by attorney Michael J. Berger of Chicago. Siohvaughn has another Chicago lawyer, Dorene Marcus.

    Says Pritikin: ``It is sad that an obviously angry and bitter woman will go to any lengths to publicly damage Mr. Wade.''

    Siohvaughn speaks the truth, Marcus insists. ''A person's public persona does not necessarily reflect his behavior in private,'' Marcus adds. ``Mrs. Wade is prepared to prove everything she alleges. And, medical records don't lie.''

    I don't believe her. She just wants his money.

    After a 6 year marriage... I can believe her. If she just wanted his money, she could have divorced him a long long long time ago. Considering they were high school sweethearts, I can see where it's time to move on. Especially when a change in lifestyle is involved like in this case.

    As for, "She just wants his money." D. Wade filed the divorce papers according this story.

    Very, very hard to prove person A definitely got an STD from person B.

    Even if he has an STD, who's to say she didn't give it to him?

    It wasn't about being the team everyone loved, it was about beating the teams everyone else loved.

    Division Champions 1955, 1956, 1988, 1989, 1990, 2002, 2003, 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008
    Conference Champions 1955, 1956, 1988, 2005
    NBA Champions 1989, 1990, 2004

    What makes you so sure Wade is so squeaky clean, b/c he has a pretty smile on tv?

    Depending on her access to medical records, it would be easy to prove if he was treated for it first and she was healthy at the time.

    It's too bad it had to come to this, but I've been hearing about problems with them for a few years. Not surprising, but I didn't expect it to get so nasty.

    People can be idiots. Can't they keep this kind of info "court sealed"? I'm sure the 1st/2nd grader loves the fact that his parents are not only getting divorced but a bunch of internet/Pacer junkies are discussing their VD's. I'm appalled at this whole thing. Wade & wife getting divorced is really all the info that should be out there.

    ...you really think his wife is going to NOT use the biggest weapon at her disposal, which is damaging his rep?

    She can damange his rep all she wants as long as she doesn't have any skeletons in her closet she would be fine.


    However she does share children with this man and regardless anything you do to him hurts them too. That and by damaging his rep she also damages his marketability and the extra money he could've brought in that she could've gotten for herself.

    From his boys' mother, I believe her name was Nancy, eons ago. As far as I know, not being a Knight fan, he's still married to his 2nd wife. If he is, she should get hazardous duty pay at the least for being married to him. I wouldn't wish that on my worst enemy.
