Siohvaughn Wade SPEAKS: Alleges Dwyane Wade ABUSED Her While PREGNANT, Says He And Gabrielle Union Had An "AFFAIR"

​ ​ ​ ​

Dwyane Wade's ex-wife Siohvaughn is speaking out about their former marriage and alleging that Dwyane abused her while she was pregnant. We've heard Dwyane's side, now Sioh is speaking after all is said and done. Siohvaughn also reveals why she believes he and Gabrielle Union indeed had an "affair." Watch the interview inside.....

During a very extensive interview with Real Talk with Kietta, which was posted last week, Dwyane Wade's ex-wife, Siohvaughn Wade, gave a detailed account of her relationship, marriage and subsequent divorce from NBA champion Dwyane Wade.  She alleges that Dwyane's public persona is fake and that he was abusive towards her while she was pregant with their child (they have two sons together). 

Though the pair began dating in their teens, Sioh, with her arm in a cast, says their love went downhill shortly after he got drafted and had a few dollars in his pocket. Her mother later joined in the conversation and talked about the sacrifices she and her family made once Dwyane moved in with them....and how he now treats them poorly.  Here are the highlights:

On Dwyane abusing her while pregnant:

I was pregnant with Zion. Shortly before being hospitalized I was in Florida and I woke up in the middle of the night because I was sick, obviously with the pregnancy. I noticed that Mr. Wade wasn’t in the house. I was calling him and calling him because it was probably like, two or three o’ clock in the morning and we went to bed together which means he must have gotten up out of the bed and just left in the middle of the night without telling me. I was looking for him. I looked around the house. I was calling his phone he didn’t answer. He finally got back several hours later, it was well into the next day and I was very upset. I was asking where was he and why he [would] just leave without saying anything.

His response was at first to be verbally abusive. He was cursing, he was calling me names, he was telling me to shut the ‘f’ up.[...]He picked me up and held me over his head literally in midair and threw me down in our bathroom. We had an ottoman in the bathroom and he slammed me down so hard that when my back hit the otooman it broke into four pieces and my back and head hit the concrete, the marble floor, excuse me, in the bathroom. After that I got up and immediately went — there’s a cordless phone in the bathroom, I immediately went to that phone and I was crying, I was hysterical, I went to go call the police. At that point more hell broke lose because I suppose he was in fear of being exposed because I certainly was going to call the police. I picked up the cordless phone, he snatched it out of my hand and he threw the cordless phone against my body so hard that the phone literally broke into pieces.

On when the relationship went downhill:

It started to get really bad the summer right after he’d been drafted. I was over the phone with him and he had said something to me very, very, angrily, and I had something to him about speaking to me and being disrespectful and he told me, ‘Do you wanna go and live in your mother’s house? ‘Cause that’s what’s gonna happen. You’re gonna end up back living in your mother’s house.’ I was very shocked. It was a very, very awful feeling. We stayed together but now that I can look back, from that moment it went downhill.

Siohvaughn's mom speaks about Dwyane moving in:

The night he came to me, he had two black garbage bags and he knocked on the door late at night. He asked me, did I mean what I said when I said that I would never let a kid be out in the street with no place to go. ‘You would never let a kid go hungry and you would always help them if they needed something for school’, and I said yeah, I meant what I said. And he said, ‘Mama, I’m home.’ So I was like, okay.

Siohvaughn On Dwyane and Gabrielle Union dating AND the lawsuit:

Separated and divorced are two different things. I’m not certain when it happened or when she happened but I know that I was very married. I know that me and Dwyane at that time had talked about reconciliation going back and forth. I was still even intimate sometimes with my then husband. So, does that constitute sleeping or having an affair with somebody’s husband? Yes. To me, divorce and separation are always two different things. The lawsuit was about her having a negative effect on my children....That’s what that lawsuit was about. Her behavior and the things she did and said began to effect my sons, that’s when I opened my mouth and did something about it.

I'm confused....was she there

I'm confused....was she there to answer the door when he showed up in the middle of the night, or was she away @ college?

I don't believe her. If wade

I don't believe her. If wade was / is part of the slap-a-ho tribe, why isn't Gabrielle speaking on it? He's been with her for a couple years now, yeah? You telling me that a leopard changes it's spots? C'mon...! He would have slipped by now. This is nothing more than a weak-minded, weak-hearted attempt at character assassination against DWade cause his crazy ass ex-wife is in bad with all the Chicago courts / judges by now with all her antics. Including kidnapping his kids. They all know she's nuttier than a Christmas fruitcake. His trick ex-wife is doing damage control on her "public image" and trying to stay relevant. You know she's just pissed cause DWade got custody of the kids and she's not "entitled" to sh*t from him now. http://tinyurl.com/8f6hr5n

She needs to be telling us

She needs to be telling us how, what, when, and why her arm is in a cast...who 's beating that ass now?...we all know it isn't Dewayne...you need to take your medicine on the regular and move on from Dewayne and live your life in the present and not in the past, it's only going to make you more and more bitter.

To the people saying he

To the people saying he couldnt have body slammed her without her miscarrying, I've had the misfortune of seeing a 9 month pregnant person be beat up and thrown down a flight of stairs. Both cases the fetus survived so that is bull. You're not MD's stop pretending. Women really need to support each other more.

Its sad because Siovaughn

Its sad because Siovaughn (Funches) from Robbins, Illinois (yes I know the family well) was out here super bogus and has the nerve to talk about dude cheating as many dudes as she was getting down with while married! Huh? I can tell you another thing...shorty can fight and the Funches wouldn't even go for that throw you thru a table BS! Wade would have been missing! Lying is not a good thing to do 2 repair your image......keep it movin'!!!

None of you hoes was there.

None of you hoes was there. So how can you make such a strong determination about the validity of her story? I have mutual friends of this womans I DO NOT KNOW HER OR WADE* but according to her friends thats she's known since grammar school, what she describes is on track with his character. I hope you idiot broads never get into a jam. My ex husband who was a police officer literally slapped the piss* out of me, but because there were no marks there was nothing to be done. Nobody believed me because he was well known and built this facade around himself. Be careful about calling folks liars, God has a way of showing you just how someone can get away with these things, then you'll be humbled.

LMAO, this bish said he

LMAO, this bish said he picked me up over his head and slammed me down on the ottoman in the bathroom and it broke into pieces. All while she was pregnant? Bish that sound like some shit from the WWF and if somebody slammed your ass like that while pregnant you woulda lost the child, or hell that shit probably would have killed you how you explained it. These hoes be acting up!

Is that your Mama? WHY WHY!

Is that your Mama? WHY WHY! SHe must be broke too!

Siovaughn, Come on get over

Siovaughn, Come on get over it. It's over. Move on with your life. Whatever you are trying to do is not working so! Find a new man and get over it!

We don't believe you. You

We don't believe you. You need more people!...Sorry but Sio and the interviewer look like they rehearsed before they taped. Looks like a reality show. Too much acting, Kietta is too dramatic, and the sound quality sucks. Now Sio's mom....totally believe and love her spirit! Dwayne should be ashamed for treating her the way he has.

This story really sad. She

This story really sad. She needs to MOVE on get herself together find a job. She is a college educated women. It's her fault for acting crazy she had primary custody of the children. Stop worrying about D-wade in worry about the boys in getting them back. Some of this story may be true given the environment Dwayne grew up in, but some of it may be a bit far fetched. Move on I am sure there are people who want her to join there show or give her side of the story in a book. It did not work move on.

Sans the interviewer being a

Sans the interviewer being a little dramatic and struggling to keep a neutral position, Sio actually seems like she's telling the truth. If this is in fact truth, that's really really sad and he'll get what he deserves/she bank on that. If she's lying, then I really can't see it getting any worse than it already is for her. Either way I really feel for bad for Sio. I just hope they'll be able to meet each other half way for the sake of the children. I wish them both the very best.

I don't care if Siovaughn is

I don't care if Siovaughn is telling a lie or truth or if Gabby slept with 12 of her men, I am tired of her running with these stories. MOVE ON!!! Get therapy, get a prayer partner and get your mind right. Running this saga about Wade and Gabby has gotten old as hell. Damn.

Not the cordless phone broke

Not the cordless phone broke into pieces...maybe the back came off and the battery fell out??? My cordless does that if I drop it on the floor. But for her to say 'it literally broke into pieces' is definitely a play on words. I do believe the negro started acting brand new when he got some money in his pocket. All she had to do was let him go and act civil and she would have never lost her kids. At least then she would've reaped the fruits of his labor. You can not convince a nigga to stay when his mind is made up to go and just cuz he still having sex with you does not mean there is 'hope'...never go by his 'word' and only bank on his 'actions' if he is consistent. Even with consistency always have a back up plan.

I haven't really been

I haven't really been following this situation, only read the headlines, but does anyone know WHY she lost custody of her kids to DeWayne? I know if she had custody she would be receiving child support, but does she get spousal alimony? It just seem like he would've paid her a nice lump sum to go away or sign a confidentiality agreement so she couldn't speak about the relationship and 'fock' up his image and endorsement deals.
My Moniker Is...'s picture

I believe her. Why does

I believe her. Why does everyone doubt the power of a public relations team (PR)?? She is coming out with this (now) because she does not have custody of her children....He called he police on her because she was late returning them? I know women who are scorned and I'm not saying she isn't but that does not automatically mean she is lying...She doesn't have a (team) to carefully orchestrate her image. Wade has consultants, advisors, and all that jazz. I definitely believe the mother. She took Wade in...you can't just make up a lie like that...

Siohvaughn needs to stop with

Siohvaughn needs to stop with all the lies. Conveniently this comes out, right after his book is declared a best seller. She has consistently tried to diminish Dwyane Wade's reputation and it all backfires... saying that she got a STD from him, proven false; that he was cheating on her; proven false because even her best friend at the time testified and said it was she (Siohvaughn) that was cheating with another man. You got slammed through a couch onto a marble floor from above DWADE's head with force, while you were pregnant with Zion and there's no damage to that little boy whatsoever. So what your saying is you suffered no Physical or emotional trauma from that ordeal alone. Then so many people are so gullible! You guys are just looking for a reason to dislike him you know damn well this can't be true.She's a Woman scorned, NOTHING MORE!!!

all i wanna know is why is

all i wanna know is why is she coming out with this now?

She really needs to move on

She really needs to move on because he has and its obvious she is lying. If she was pregnant and he threw her down on the concrete as she stated I believe she would have went to the hospital. Leave the past in the past and look forward.

Wow.This is sad. D-ugly will

Wow.This is sad. D-ugly will reapp what he sow. He better make it right with his ex and her mother. I do not know how D-ugly can talk and show his face in public. God would judge in the end you lowlife MoFo.

As far as Gabby Union is

As far as Gabby Union is concerned , if he treated his wife this way, he can't be treating her much better. Gabby might he faking for the public, but people rarely change their habits, even when dating a new person. If he cheated on his wife, whom he made vows to, before God, then chances are he is cheating on Gabby, who is away shooting movies half of the year. Good luck Gabby, you might be the next Evelyn Lozada.

I believe in God and I know

I believe in God and I know for a fact that you reap what you sow. I absolutely believe her. I know she is not perfect, but I don't think anyone should drag their ex-wife through all this mess. In my eyes DWade is a loser, you can have millions of dollars, but if you can't take care of business at home and find a peaceful, respectful way to resolve your disputes, then you have problems. Putting the situation in context, he was so young when they were first married, that he didn't know how to balance his family life with all the temptation that came along the fame, so I see how he could do some of these things. On the flip side, every dog has its day and he will eventually have to pay for the dirt he is doing. Kobe, Shaq and even Michael Jordan were able to treat their wives and ex-wives with so much more dignity than this. Even Lebron and Carmelo, were able to find a way to salvage their relationships with their baby's mothers, despite the fact that they supposedly cheated with other women. I pray that Siohvaughn is able to find some peace in her life, despite this fool she has to deal with. I hope she can learn to co-parent with him, despite how destructive and selfish he has been. She needs to pray for him, but accept that you are dealing with a loser that may never change.

I'm getting sOOOoo tired of

I'm getting sOOOoo tired of FEMALES throwing around the "DOMESTIC ABUSE" term! If you and your partner get into a VERBAL argument, it does NOT mean he/she is "ABUSIVE!" I DON'T believe her "BATHROOM BRAWL" claim, or MOST of what this troll claims. This woman does NOT have CUSTODY of her BOYS because she is a "MENTAL MESS" so I CAN'T take her seriously! I wonder whose ARM SLING she "BORROWED" for the interview smh!

Last question- Can more

Last question- Can more detail be provided as to why the court appointed psychologist recommended Sio be awarded custody?

Good Morning Beauty! No

Good Morning Beauty! No offense taken :0) . As is the case with past Sio related threads, there seemed to a plethora of legal-like-opinated comments. The questions should be construed and an open invite to those individuals to chime in on area for which there might be a degree of expertise. Hope you have a wonderful weekend!

Wade and Gabby were together

Wade and Gabby were together while he was still legally married...Gabby was dating Darren Sharper who lives in Miami then all of a sudden she was hanging round the NBA wives and with Wade. There was definitely an overlap..Like most men, I'm sure he was telling Gabby it was over and telling Sio another, having his cake and eating it too...Everything else? I'on know about the physical abuse part.

There aren't many things more

There aren't many things more beautiful than black women sticking together. Sio's mom is a rock. She seems to be a mom that could make anyone proud. From taking a kid off the street and making sure he had everything she provided her children (condolences by way of her deceased daughter), to standing by her daughter through tough times. Gotta love Moms!

Question #5- According to

Question #5- According to Sio, he was late in bringing the kids to her, in Sio's estimate, about 7 times. This includes, according to Sio, the same week she was arrested. How does the court determine a balance based on the children being dropped off late or picked up late?

Okay so you mean to tell me

Okay so you mean to tell me Dwayne did a WWE move and bench pressed her pregnant butt up over his head and threw her down on a marble floor so hard that she broke the furniture into 4 pieces but yet she didn't lose the baby or need any type of medical attention?? I don't mean to sound like Rasheeda from LHHA but "I just don't believe he did those things to you". lol

Questions #4. It is said, according to the interview, that in the past, the the same judge ruled a man innocent of a sex related charge due to the traditions of his culture (please correct me if I misunderstood). Can more detail be provided regarding the background and record of the judge?

Question #3. According to

My heart breaks for her.. I

My heart breaks for her.. I think she waited to talk to the media until she knew there was no chance of her having access to Wade but that was not smart she should of been told her story, speaking now diminishes her credibility. If he wanted to move on thats fine but he could of left her and the mom a home or something since when he was broke they cared for him...smh

Methinks Sio's mom has a

Methinks Sio's mom has a beautiful heart.

Questions- 1. My

Questions- 1. My understanding based on the interview is the judge in the case was once over ruled having been determined that she had overstepped her authority. Can more detail be provided on the exact nature of that specific appeal? 2. After playing all 7 segments on youtube, my understanding is Sio raised the kids as a single parent for three years after the separation (feel free to correct me if I'm wrong). How can it be then that he was only required to pay three months of child support? It seems more questions were created by this interview than questions answered.

Ok now...I did feel bad for

Ok now...I did feel bad for her but its time for Wade's ex wife to move on. Get counseling, whatever it takes. I doubt that there's any truth to her story about being abused--AND her mom has the nerve to chime in now. They're both dwelling on the past which is never good to do. SMH...if D. Wade & Gabby did her wrong God will handle them. At least he's never trashed her in public. She needs to get help and a new man to focus on.

I don't believe anything that

I don't believe anything that comes out of her mouth. She just wants sympathy and she also wants Dwayne to look bad because, she's lost the power she had.

I'm not buying

I'm not buying it.....desperate people say outlandish things and exaggerate. She's had a lot of time to come up with this (i've been in a situation that could "technically" be considered "abuse" but the guy was trying to calm me down and ANY Exaggeration whatsoever to the story, it would have sounded bad)...................

Well, did the alleged

Well, did the alleged incident happen in the bathroom or bedroom? She can't seem to keep her story straight. Regardless, it is history and for the sake of their sons she needs to move on. He is not coming back, and appears to be rather happy with Ms. Union. She needs to focus on her life, get a job or volunteer her services to a charity if she doesn't need to work, go back to school, etc. Her mother should be pointing her in that direction, not sitting in on a ruination of Mr. Wade's public image.

Looks like she has put on

Looks like she has put on weight. Anyways she need to move on. All that negative talking to the media will hurt herself at the end of the day.
