Dwyane Wade’s Ex-Wife Siohvaughn Talks Abuse, Affair & Custody Battle

After getting his hands on a 2nd NBA championship ring and one of the hottest ladies in Hollywood, Dwyane Wade definitely seems to be the man of the year, but that’s not what his ex-wife Siohvaughn Wade says.

According to Dwyane’s ex-wife and mother of his two kids, the beloved NBA star is actually a violent cheater.

One night Siohvaughn claimed she confronted the NBA star after he left in the middle of the night without telling her.

“His first response was at first to be verbally abusive,” Siohvaughn said during her interview on “Real Talk with Kietta.” “He was cursing, he was calling me names, he was telling me to shut the ‘f” up.”

Siohvaughn’s testament to Dwyane’s violent nature only escalated from there.

“He picked me up and held me over his head literally in midair and threw me down in our bathroom,” Siohvaughn continued. “We had an ottoman in the bathroom and he slammed me down so hard that when my back hit the ottoman it broke into four pieces and my back and head hit the concrete, the marble floor, excuse me, in the bathroom.”

According to the NBA star’s allegedly abused ex-wife, she picked up the cordless phone to call the police when Dwyane snatched it from her and threw it at her so hard that the phone “literally broke into pieces.”

In the midst of domestic violence, the couple separated but didn’t divorce quite yet.

In Siohvaughn’s interview she claimed that this time of separation was when Dwyane Wade found the new love of his life, Gabrielle Union.

“Separated and divorced are two different things,” she said with her arm resting in a cast. “I’m not certain when it happened or when she happened but I know that I was very married. I know that me and Dwyane at that time had talked about reconciliation going back and forth. I was still even intimate sometimes with my then husband.”

If Dwyane’s ex-wife’s allegations are true, it’s unclear why this information wasn’t presented during their custody battle that awarded Dwyane full custody of their sons.

The terrifying reality that Siohvaughn faced during her marriage was exactly why she feared Dwyane getting drafted in the first place.

The two had been dating long before Dwyane got to the NBA, and Siohvaughn’s family even took Dwyane in at the age of 16 after he fled from his own abusive household.

Ironically, according to Siohvaughn’s reports, he fled one abusive household just to create another later down the road.

Back in 2010, Siohvaughn even tried to sue to Gabrielle Union for “emotional distress,” claiming that the actress “engaged in sexual foreplay” in front of her then 8-year-old and 2-year-old sons.
