NBA star and current boyfriend of Gabrielle Union—Dwyane Wade–has been engulfed in a bitter custody battle with his ex-wife Siovaughn for last couple of years. The woman who was once his high school sweetheart has been labeled everything from “violet” to “irresponsible” by the media. If you ask us, something just isn’t quite right with entire situation. With Gabrielle Union having been in the picture while he and Siovaughn were allegedly together, it’s hard to believe Wade and Siovaughn’s love just faded. I digress.
In an attempt to clear her name, or at least swipe away some of the dirt from it, the desperate mother joined Dr. Phil on his episode about “ex-wives seeking justice,” where she shares her side of the divorce/custody battle debacle. “Well a lot of it had to do with Mr. Wade’s celebrity and a lot of it had to do with his money. But I’ve seen the court system in a way that I’ve never seen it before. I went into that place hoping to get help for my children and I, but I found judges in the courtroom quoting statistics for Mr. Wade. They would speak about him as if they were introducing the starting lineup for a basketball game” she revealed.
According to NecoleBitchie, she also said “One time we were doing scheduling and we were asking when would Mr. Wade come in and testify. And she was saying, ‘Oh, I know when he’ll be in Chicago. They play the Bulls and right now they’re in Philadelphia.’ She knew all of these things and she’d say all of the time, ‘I’m a huge basketball fan.’ I was sort of hoping she’d be a fan of justice, but I found otherwise.”
