Dwyane Wade Asks for Sole Custody of Kids, Says Ex Is "Unstable, Dishonest, Unbalanced"
Dwyane Wade's divorce from his estranged wife Siohvaughn continues to get nastier. Wade's attorneys recently filed papers with the court asking for sole custody of his two children, claiming that Siohvaughn's behavior "has made it evident that she is unstable, dishonest, unbalanced, unwilling to accept responsibility for her actions, not of good character, and therefore, unfit to be a custodial parent."
Wade has already said he won't participate in this summer's world basketball championship in order to spend more time with his children and is currently rumored to be in a relationship with actress Gabrielle Union.
Last year, Siohvaughn, who was Wade's high school sweetheart, filed papers claiming he had given her an STD and that he had abandoned his children. Those claims were later removed from the divorce proceedings. Now Wade's attorneys claim that Siohvaugn had a volatile temper, exhibited threatening behavior, had extramarital affairs, and prevented the children from seeing their father. We guess those rumors that she took a baseball bat to his trophy room seem a bit more plausible now.
Update: Wade released a statement to the Associated Press.
"For more than two years, I have tried to make peace with Siohvaughn concerning our divorce and custody of our kids," Wade said in a statement released to The AP. "I no longer believe that's possible. Siohvaughn has consistently attempted to interrupt or prevent me from having visitation time with our boys."
