Karma? Remember When Dwyane Wade’s Ex-Wife Sued Gabrielle for Breaking Up their Marriage?

The relationship between Dwyane Wade and Gabrielle Union has been in the media lately for both their stunning marriage proposal, and also the recent revelation that Wade fathered a child during their time apart.

Union is being applauded for her mature response to the situation, reiterating her love for Wade.  Wade has also stated that the son is a “blessing to the bloodline.”  But some people wonder if this is karma in action, after Gabrielle herself was once accused by Wade’s ex-wife of ruining their marriage.

A 2010 lawsuit contains accusations by Wade’s ex-wife Siohvaughn, claiming that Union seduced Wade and acted as his mistress around his 8-year-old and 2-year-old sons.  Siohvaughn is sought damages against Union on the grounds that she broke up her marriage.  Since that time, Siohvaughn has lost custody of her children and hasn’t made much headway in her quest to challenge Wade for the way their marriage came to an end. 

Union, who has starred in the films “Bring It On,” “Deliver Us from Eva,” and “Bad Boys II,”  is not so favorably discussed in the lawsuit which reads, Union “apparently decided to take her role” of seductress “beyond the films and into the home of a married man . . . in the presence of his two minor children.”

More and more cases are coming about where wives are suing mistresses, and the wives are actually winning.  Union may be celebrating the new engagement, but it certainly is not absent of disappointment.

Do you think Gabrielle Union should still marry Dwyane Wade considering all that’s happened?  By Wade having a child with another woman, is she getting what she has dished out to someone else?

    Yup. Union is an opportunist and a desperate woman. All her roles seem to fit her, always playing a shady character. Karma is a bi**** his ex took him when he was broke and down. Union wouldn’t dated wade prior to him being an nba star.

      NAS, Do you know her personally. The roles that Union plays on TV are in the script.
      You are hilarious. It is pretty obvious that Union is such a great actress she had you convinced that she is the way you are describing her.
      Union is an actress. Kerry Washington is an actress, Denzel Washington, Halle Berry & many more. They have scripts.

        Actress, yeah she’s putting on one of her best performances right before our eyes. She’s hurt, embarrassed and her/his people are trying to put the best spin on this situation that only idiots would believe. Anyone in their right mind know that this bs. She has no shame in what/how she moves; so now she has to eat crow with a smile. Silly women, when will you what goes around, ALWAYS, comes BACK around! You had your cake, now eat this for 21 years. Is your new years really happy Gabrielle? As for Wade, he had no choice but to fess up; and just because he did, should not dismiss him from being a cheat who really doesn’t have much respect for himself, Gaby, nor his family. None of us are perfect, we all make mistakes. It’s not WHAT you do but, HOW you do it.

    I respect both Wade and Union……Wade for being a great father no matter what the situation may be. Thanks for being a stand up dude. Union for standing by her man, Real women! True love is the love of God. I wish we ALL can mind our own BUSINESS!

      The love of god has nothing to do with this. If they had the love of god, they wouldn’t have been committing adultery, and he wouldn’t have been fornicating.

      You are so right we were not a fly on the wall how-ever we do know that Ms.Union inserted herself into Mr.Wades marriage and played house long before the divorce and she humiliated and villified the Ex Mrs. Wade every chance she got.And I am not one who beleive in the karma thing but we all reaped the seeds we sow,Ms. Union sowed bad seeds in that she didn’t respect the Ex-Mrs. Wades marriage wheather it was on good or bad terms and now those seeds she planted yrs ago has ripen into bitter fruit that she herself now has too eat.Just saying

        Wade and his wife were separated whe he start seeing Ms Union. There was a lot of problems in that house hold long before Gabrille came along, she should have waited until the divorce was final before she stepped in.

    As i said before regarding the question whether she should marry considering the issues at hand.

    It is their business on what they do or do not do. Who are we to say. Do you think they care???? If they cared they would ask and I have not heard the question on what all of us think…

    None of our Business

    Everyone seems preoccupied with the women’s actions in this scenario
    What about the actions of Wade he is just as culpable and shows
    the true character of his actions. I feel sorry for all the women who got involved with the likes of him.

    I am just amazed how the standards of good vs reckless parenting is different when rich folks do it compared to poor folks. Whether we like it or not, this is two things…Wade didn’t take much to need another woman’s shoulder to cry on..that new baby mother didn’t take much nor long to decide she would make herself a beneficiary of what was clearly a one night stand. There is no way that pregnancy was a mistake of looking for comfort, if so that is one careless woman to give your third child to and disrespect the love of your life with. For godsake…was he without Union for more than 5 days to need sex so bad? WADE!! After being with someone for 4 years and creating so much publicity, clearly you needed to sit your baxide down and focus. The day of the first strain creating an argument…watch this baby’s birthright come up for question. Sorry Gabrielle, you really needed to step back and think. He will cheat the moment you have a disagreement.

    No one is perfect; however I do question his ability to have sex with a
    Woman unprotected while on a break. I also wonder would D. Wade
    forgive her if she had got pregnant while on a “break”. Regardless of what
    anyone says or thinks she should do its really none of our business.

    Not all women are good mothers, but any man of financial means who wants their children will get them whether they are “good” fathers or not, even if the help has to raise the kids. D Wade, Usher, Steve Harvey to name a few, so it will just be a matter of time before he takes this new baby to continue the “good father” theme he has going

    Gabby will not let any women or any number of babies come between her having a young, rich husband of her own, she has been consistent about messing with other women’s men since the late 70’s when me and my fiance lived right across the hall from her, she has plenty experience and is now desperate for a husband of her own, at least she can let him have the babies by others and not miss a beat. She is not going anywhere, a woman like her doesn’t feel public humiliation, it is just publicity for her. she likes rubbing it in the competitions faces that she got the ring.

      Your lying about Gabrielle messing with other women’s men since the late 70’s, the girl was born in 1972.

    I agree with Nas and the person who said that she is putting on one of her greatest performances. She is so embarrassed right now. I really don’t care but I find this situation hilarious.

    Oh please all yall need to hush talking about yall know how Gabby feels because none of you know. Now I love Gabby as an actress and just like the bitter ex yall got issues with Gabby. I dont condone cheating and wouldnt tolerate it. Everybody involved in this ghetto did some foul sheit to contribute in their way. We can talk about this sheit all day but frontin and talking about yall know how Gabby really feels is BS its just silly.

    So many of you have said ugly things about Gabrielle and a lot of it was untrue, why do hate on each other all the time. The roles she plays as an actress are all strong women, not hood rat, baby momma drama or drug addict. Her choice of men may not be the best but I think she should let Wade gone on his merry way. She is beautiful and she doesn’t have to rush to get married. Gabrielle did an interview a while back and she was on the show with Cicely Tyson and she talked about things that she had did when she was younger and she wasn’t proud of it. She talked about her relationship with men that had wives or girlfriends, she said these relationships were safe because she could step away and not be hurt she said she was insecure. Openly apologized to everyone and she was crying, she said it took her along time to feel secure about herself and herself worth. Before you dog someone out you need to walk a mile in their shoes. None of us know everything here.

    First, I must say, I do not believe in karma. If we all received “karma” that means God would do it to us, and he doesn’t. If he paid us all back for what we did, we would all be dead. Second, no one is a home wrecker. The only “home wrecker” is the person who decided to step out the relationship, because he/she is the one that made that commitment to that person married or not. You’re not going to let a person just walk in your home and take your posessions right? You would stand up for it. That’s the way a relationship/marriage should be. Stop blaming the outside person, not to say Gabrielle was right; but, most of the time these relationships are over before the other person even steps in.

    @H. Moore: Yes Gabby is standing up for her man, but did he stand up for her? He put her in a very ugly place. Now she will forever be reminded of that affair every time she sees that baby. Not to mention that she will not only have to deal with the baby but now she will have to deal with the mother of that baby as well. And he does not get a pass because he has money! If that was any other man he would be all kinds of no good and unfit. Call it what it’s is. Call a thing a thing!

    @Shazznem: I so agree with you. Just because he has money does not mean he gets a pass to act like a dog in Heat! (No pun intended). If that was a regular guy, he would have been all kinds of dogs, and pigs and unfit! He knew what to do if he didn’t want a baby. They had a disagreement and he went out and slept with another woman unprotected. He put himself and Gabby at risk for something they may not have been able to get rid of. That is irresponsible and inconsiderate. He only asked her to marry him because that baby business got out, so in order for Gabby not to look stupid and for him to look like a stand up guy he asked her to marry him. Please, Chile Boo! Gabby is desperate and is going to go through with this charade just to save face. She will always be reminded of this affair every time she sees that baby and she will have to deal with the mother for the next 21 years as well. She can stand there an smile all she wants, we all know she is eating crow with a smile on her face. She may be smiling on the outside but her heart is breaking on the inside. She would rather be hurt with him than lonely without him. When she realizes she is a Black queen and knows her worth, she will do better. What you continue to put up with is what you will continue to get.

    Wow, Gabby can’t wait to become the “former” Mrs. Wade!!! He’d better get a super-fine prenup because she’s got something up her sleeve! There is no real love between these two…or, it’s some kind of new-aged “love” going on here! Lol

    Wake up America, just because a marriage have problems that does not institute cheating on you wife. I haven’t been married, but being cheated on is painful (especially, in the public eye). All this time, Siovaughn was being overpowered by money and fame. Unfortunately, no one believed her and deemed her crazy; until they found out about Wade’s illegitimate newborn child. America please wake up, celebrities that aren’t use to money can become monsters. Subsequently, 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. “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). Wade’s the Heat franchise love child, therefore, the NBA is helping him. Siovaughn taking to the streets (the public eye) was her desperate attempt to be heard. Give her a fair chance- the opportunity that you would want. Tiger Wood’s ex-wife got a lion’s share and did not lose her kids.
