In an attempt to find her own salvation and rectify misdoings, the wife of basketball player Dwayne Wade is filing a lawsuit against actress Gabrielle Union in connection with an affair.
Making the allegations that sexual acts were performed in front of her two sons, his wife, Siohvaughn Wade, has stated that the relationship between her husband and Union has caused emotional distress for their children.
“Defendant has played sexually explicit roles, including roles as a seductress,” the lawsuit reads. “Defendant has apparently decided to take her role beyond the films and into the home of a married man, Dwyane Wade, in the presence of his two minor children.”
The two boys, ages 8 and 2, are listed as being the plaintiffs for the case.
In terms of the amount being sought out, Siohvaughn Wade is looking to nab around $50,000 as retribution for the damages inflicted on her sons.
Along with sexual acts, the suit claims that during Christmas of last year, his boys received “medium sized gift”, whereas Union was given “the biggest gift of all”.
Ever think that maybe if they were receiving GIFTS, it would make sense for her one GIFT to be a little larger?
Dwayne Wade has responded, calling the suit “baseless and meritless,” and Union issued a statement insisting the allegations are false.
“I can state with certainty that the claims Siohvaughn made about Gabrielle are untrue,” Dwyane Wade said. “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.”
C. Anthony Mulrain, the attorney for Union, issued a statement in defense of his client.
“The court ultimately rejected these claims as frivolous,” said Mulrain. “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.”
Several other matters involving the former couple are pending, including a request by Dwyane Wade for sole custody of his children and that his wife be psychologically evaluated
