Dwyane Wade has been in the news a lot lately. Last week his wife, actress Gabrielle Union, was fired from America’s Got Talent and Wade made a public show of support via social media for his wife. Following that, the NBA Hall Of Famer then defended his 12 year old son, Zion, against anti-gay comments levied against him online.
Now Wade’s going viral again. A 2012 video of his ex-wife Siovaughn Wade was re-released online and in it, Siovaughn is making some explosive allegations against the NBA baller.
Siovaughn claims that she suffered “abuse” at the hands of her ex-husband. And that abuse occurred while she was carrying their son Zion.
She claims that Dwyane Wade “sold his soul” for money. Siovaughn says in the video, “I saw him sell his soul. I saw him taking his character and exchanging it for yet another endorsement.”
She also claims that Dwyane Wade beat her, while she was pregnant with their now 12 year old son Zion. Siovaughn told the interviewer:
I woke up in the middle of the night. I was sick – obviously because of the pregnancy. And I noticed that [Dwyane] wasn’t in the house. And so I was calling him because it was like 2:00 or 3:00 in the morning, and we went to bed together . . .
He finally got back several hours later. I was very upset . . . . [Dwyane] started cursing and calling me names. Telling me ‘Shut the F up’, ‘Women talk too much’ and ‘You should know your place’.
Then it turned to physical violence. He picked me up, and threw me down. He threw me down so hard, that when my back hit the ottoman it broke into pieces. And my head and back hit the marble floor.
After that I immediately got up and went to the phone, and went to call the police. He snatched the phone out of my hand and slammed it into my body, so hard the phone broke into pieces
