According to Black Voices, Dwayne Wade has been granted temporary custody of his two sons.
NBA star Dwyane Wade’s divorce just got a little bit uglier. This week, the court gave Wade custody of his two sons, citing his wife’s failure to obey court rules as part of the reason. Wade was given “physical possession” by the judge, who resides in Chicago. This was a day after Wade settled four civil suits that had been brought against him by former business partners on matters unrelated to his divorce.
The court cited Wade’s wife, Siohvaughn, and found that the player’s ability to see his children “has been frustrated on an ongoing basis as a result of continual interference” by his estranged spouse. There were three instances referenced, one in March and two in May, where Wade’s visitation times had been altered and another time when his wife would not open the gate when he came to pick up his kids.
“The Court is troubled by the continuing pattern of (Siohvaughn Wade) to obey court orders when they go her way and disobey court orders when they do not,” wrote Associate Judge Fe Fernandez.
Wade is seeking full custody of his sons in the divorce. Another hearing is scheduled for later this month. Full story here.
