The wife of NBA star Dwyane Wade is suing his alleged side dish Gabrielle Union, claiming the star’s conduct around their young children has inflicted emotional distress.

 

Siohvaughn Wade claims the actress “engaged in sexual foreplay with Dwyane Wade” in front of Wade’s 8-year-old and 2-year-old sons while on an unsupervised visitation to the basketball star’s Miami home, according to a suit filed last Tuesday in Cook County Circuit Court.

The suit, according to the Chicago Sun-Times, also claims Wade’s oldest son was allowed to play unsupervised in or around the Miami home’s pool at night. Wade and Union ignored the boy, whose “screams and cries” eventually got the attention of Wade’s mother, Jolinda Wade, who took the boy inside, according to the suit.

 

The 8-year-old later told court-appointed child representative Lester Barelay what happened and asked him “to put his father in jail…” so he would not have to return to the home, which he calls “the house where the woman kissing daddy lives,” the suit said.

 

The suit also claims the younger child nearly drowned while in his father’s care and Union drove the boys to the park with his oldest son in the front seat.

 

On one visitation, Wade allegedly orchestrated a meeting between Union and the boys, where he introduced the actress as his “girlfriend” and said “that is why your mom and I are going to divorce,” according to the suit.

 

Dwyane and Siohvaughn Wade have been “sweethearts” since they were 15 years old and currently are still married but are involved in a divorce proceeding, the suit said.

 

The boy’s mother claims the sexual foreplay in front of the boys and the orchestrated meeting to introduce the children to their future stepmother caused emotional distress.

 

The older child has sought medical treatment for stress and anxiety, has developed nervous habits, experiences headaches, and is generally anxious to the point of “significant” hair loss causing bald spots, according to the suit. The boy is currently seeking court-mandated mental evaluations at the University of Chicago, the suit said.

 

Siohvaughn Wade and the boys are seeking more than $50,000 from Union at a trial.
