As Dwyane Wade prepares to wed Gabrielle Union, his past relationships keep coming back to punch him in the stomach.

Shortly after the Miami Heat star and “Being Mary Jane” actress announced their engagement, news broke that Wade fathered a love child at some point during their relationship.

Now…the athlete’s ex-wife Siovaughn Wade is piling on, claiming that Wade is not only a cheat, but used to beat her, and gave her a sexually transmitted disease.

According to recently filed court documents uncovered by Radar Online, Siohvaughn said her ex revealed a different side to her shortly after they married on May 18, 2002.

“I had known that Dwyane Wade had a temper and could become violent at times,” she claims in the documents, “but when we moved out of my mother’s home … into our own apartment with our infant son, the violence increased. This, however, was just the surface of the domestic violence Dwayne Wade would inflict upon me.”

“As Dwyane Wade’s income increased,” she claims, “his arrogance and pride increased as well. Dwyane Wade began to call me derogatory names more, throw things at me, hit me, take all my money from me, and even kicked me out of the house causing me not to have a place to live. … As a means of controlling me, and as part of Dwyane Wade’s domestic violence pattern, he would often hit me, lock me in rooms and not allow me out, threaten to take my sons from me and frighten me by telling me he knows judges and that they are on his pay roll and he can take the children from me at any time he wanted. The domestic violence and abuse continued on for several years in our family.”

Wade has denied the accusations and is suing Siohvaughn for defamation in another case.

“I tried to leave Dwyane Wade, but when I did, he made sure I did not have access to my own home and he cut off all my bankcards and denied me access to any money,” she continues. “This exerting of power and control has continued to this day.”

In one incident, she claims, “He picked up a garbage can made of marble stone and threw it at me. Dwyane Wade picked me up into the air above his head and slammed me down onto a large ottoman with such force that the ottoman broke into pieces when he slammed my body on it and banged my head against a marble bathroom floor.”

“Subsequently,” she claims, “I ended up having to be rushed to the emergency room of Christ Hospital and spent an entire week hospitalized.”

Siohvaughn further claims in the documents that she discovered Dwyane was cheating on her, and when she got tested for STDs, she says she found out that he had given her one. Shortly after, on May 27, 2008, Dwyane filed for divorce.

“The marriage has ended but Dwyane Wade’s abuse has not ceased,” Siohvaughn claims in the documents, “and through the court system he continues to use his money and influence to exert power and control over me.”

Indeed, Siohvaughn claims that Dwyane gave her attorney hundreds of thousands of dollars to accept a settlement that she did not approve. As part of that settlement, she was awarded the couple’s marital home in Illinois, but ordered to refinance the mortgage on the property. She has since failed to do so and has fallen behind on payments. (She claims she was denied by several banks for the refinancing.)

Dwyane filed a motion to find her in contempt for letting the home fall risk to foreclosure, but Siohvaughn filed new documents last month explaining that she simply could not afford it. Adding to her financial troubles, she claims, various companies with which Dwyane has endorsements have failed to deposit his earnings into a court-ordered mutual account, instead routing the money straight to the NBA star in what she calls a “conspiracy.”

The judge was persuaded to side with Siohvaughn, denying Dywane’s motion to find her in contempt.

Both sides will meet in court on February 28 to discuss selling the home or refinancing.

    Maybe it’s me, but this article is clearly stating that “Wade is not making his payments.” Sounds like the courts and Wade fans think that he’s above the law. Moreover,He paid off her lawyers to compromise her case. Read the article people, without bias precepts. Wade sounds like the typical hood dude (beating and controlling women, a norm). He’s the Heat franchise savior, therefore, the NBA is helping him. Siovaughn taking to the streets (the public eye) was her desperate attempt to be heard. Unfortunately, no one believed and deemed her looney; until they found out about Wade’s illegitimate newborn child. All this time she was being overpowered by money and fame. America please wake up, celebrities that are not use to the money can become monsters. She never got a fair trial and in the process lost her children. Now that’s insane. A real mother would never give up. She must go after Wade in order to be heard and then try to get her children back.

    REALLY! And now she wants to say something why the wait WOMAN SCORNED. She just making herself look crazy! Just like Gabrielle for marrying this guy. I read a comment online this week saying Gabrielle must have low self esteem. She has so much to offer the right man.

  3. Amazing! This woman in my opinion would say anything about Dwayne Wade. I find her story so incredible because I would think a lll of this would have come out in her divorce case not now after his proposal to someone else.She also cares nothing about her boys because you would not keep their dad whom they love in the news so negatively. I am wondering why he never trashes her ? could it be he is a good person and he respects the love his boys has for their mom? Let that man live his life and you live yours but leave him alone. And people if D Wade wasn’t a good person she wouldn’t be trying so hard………………………………

  4. face it folks d.wade is a piece of crap. i’m sure since she filed it with the court that they can go back and verify her stay at the hospital and the type of injuries she received.his tract record alone is enough for me to believe. you should never put your hands on a woman period. shame on you wade. i hope you get what you deserve. btw what is gabby thinking????

  5. unfortunately, no one knows the whole story but her, God and Dwayne. It is important that she lets the world know the real Dwayne. He plays this wholesome guy which is why he’s allowed to continuously manipulate and control. His character is very important when he’s not following court orders. and like she said she is not receiving all the money, I’m sure she wouldn’t publicly state a lie which can very well be proven through the courts. No one knows if he provoked her behavior so that he could take the children away. She said he’s threatened several times. who knows…but I will continue to pray for her either way.

  6. I think you are right Euladria, let it go and move on, there is no reason that you can not pay your house note if you are getting 25,000 a month, and you dont have the boys all the time. How can you find happiness if you dont move on.

    I sincerely hope Siovaughn gets the help she so desperately needs. I’m not condoning what D Wade did to her but its time to forgive and rebuild your life. It saddens me that your theatrics allowed your children to be taken away from you. You have every right to be hurt but, its time to get past the hurt and pain you obviously still feel. It didn’t have to turn out like this. My advice to you is to forgive when you hold on to resentment & hostility the only person it hurts is you. Allow God to fix what has been broken I promise you; you will start to heal and rebuild. If not for yourself do it for your boys. These constant tirades that you are still exhibiting is not healthy it pains me to see you still in the news about something that does not mater at this time you stayed in a abusive relationship for whatever reason stop crying over spill milk. God will make sure Dewayne gets what he deserves vengeance is mine says the Lord not your Siovaughn the bible says “whatsoever a man sow that shall he reap” he will get his in God’s time not yours.

    • Amen Euladria. My heart goes out to her and so many women that hold on like this to men who are incapable of respecting and valuing a woman. He has already had a child on Gabrielle and she is just so happy to have the money and fame. D. Wade is not a nice man and he will step on every woman who allows him to enter her life including Gabrielle. I really hope Siovaughn gets into therapy to sort out her past and get to a more healthier place. As for D. Wade I pray that he also learns that women are jewels who deserve to be cherished and not cheated on and/or abused.
