Dwyane Takes Siohvaughn to Court for Libel
It appears the divorce of Dwyane Wade and his wonderfully named wife Siohvaughn is going to be one of the ugliest high-profile sports star divorces in recent memory. Siohvaughn's lawyers fired the first shot by claiming Wade gave her an unnamed STD. Then came some rumors that Siohvaughn went ballistic on Dwyane's MVP trophy with a baseball bat, followed shortly by allegations that Dwyane hosted sex parties and smoked pot.
Now Dwyane is taking his estranged wife and two of her lawyers to court for libel over the accusations. The claim originally was part of Siohvaughn's divorce filings and then appeared in a Joan Fleischman column. A few weeks ago, the allegations were removed from the filings. Dwyane is apparently so confidant its a lie he's willing to take it to court.
If you're going to have an ugly divorce, what better timing than to have it coincide with the ongoing A-Roid controversy?
