Dwyane Wade Hits "The View", Talks Winning Child Custody BATTLE
NBA champion Dwyane Wade chatted it up with the ladies of "The View" during today's Season 16 premiere, and he discussed his nasty divorce, winning full custody of his boys, and and his new book A Father First: How My Life Became Bigger Than Basketball (in stores now). Watch the clip inside in case you missed it.....
Dwyane Wade stopped by "The View" to dish on his new book which details his role as father to one of his nephews and to his two sons, Zaire, 10, and Zion, 5 (whom he won custody of in 2011). The book follows how important fatherhood was to his own life growing up, and its importance now.
The ladies also addressed the allegations of domestic abuse and well as infidelity that were put out by his ex-wife Siohvaughn. When asked why he never fought the allegations in public, he said he wanted to spend his time fighting for his boys and not petty gossip items in the press.
He also revealed that the divorce he went through was nasty, but he was awarded custody because the judge felt he was the best parent to facilitate a relationship between both he and Siohvaughn, for the kids' sake. He revealed that when the boys were in the custody of his ex-wife, she made it very hard for them to see him.
In a second segment, his sister and mother joined him on stage. They spoke about what a positive force his older sister was to him when his mother fell victim to heroin when he was young and she was in and out of jail (even escaping once and being a fugitive). She made sure he had different options in life, brought him to live with his father and half brothers, and didn't fall prey to the brutal streets of Chicago.
And in a light-hearted moment, Joy Behar added, "You are the snappiest dressed we've ever had on this show." He did look good though...
