The estranged wife of Miami Heat star Dwyane Wade has filed a lawsuit against his girlfriend, actress Gabrielle Union (pictured right), claiming that their relationship has caused Wade's two sons emotional distress, according to the Associated Press.
"Siohvaughn Wade (pictured left) filed the suit in Chicago this week, adding yet another chapter to the lengthy divorce saga between the former high school sweethearts who separated more than two years ago," writes the AP's Tim Reynolds. "She and Dwyane Wade had two sons, ages 8 and 2, who are listed as plaintiffs."
Union's attorney, C. Anthony Mulrain says that "Each and every allegation made is entirely false."
And Dwayne Wade supports Union: "I can state with certainty that the claims Siohvaughn made about Gabrielle are untrue," Wade said. "I am deeply saddened and disappointed that Siohvaughn has used our sons once again as pawns and is now lashing out at Gabrielle, who is an innocent party. It is clear that this is a desperate attempt to retaliate against me for seeking sole custody of our children.
"I am shocked that Siohvaughn Wade has brought this baseless and meritless lawsuit in the name of our children against Gabrielle Union," he added.
The Wades' divorce trial is slated to start in June, although Dwyane Wade's legal team is hoping for a settlement before the case goes to court.
