D-Wade Leads the Attack of the Wrongfully Diseased

AI Wire PhotoWhatever happened to being satisfied with being married to a financially stable professional athlete? You would think a little rash down south would be canceled out by a husband who brings home hundreds by the handful.

But, alas, Siohvaughn Wade is more preoccupied by all the other things with which her estranged husband provided her.

According to reports, NBA superstar and former Finals MVP Dwyane Wade is suing his wife and her money-hungry lawyers for defamation and undue “humiliation” and “embarrassment” after Siohvaughn last month claimed her husband infected her with an unidentified venereal disease through his extramarital affairs.

She has since withdrawn the STD claim from the couple’s court proceedings concerning the impending divorce. Siohvaughn, however, according to at least one of her lawyers, stands by her allegations, which also include child abandonment, so as to complete the adultery triple-decker sandwich.

From what we can gather, Mr. Wade has not personally challenged the first two accusations, only to release the obligatory denial statement through his legal representation. But calling D-Wade a walking syphilis case is going way too far.

Mr. Wade is seeking $50,000 from his former high school sweetheart as well as her lawyers, Michael Berger and Dorene Marcus.

“Mr. Wade has been the victim of a reckless campaign by Siohvaughn Wade and her lawyers to publicly humiliate him and damage his reputation,” James Power, an attorney representing the Heat player, said in a statement to the AP. “To clear the public record from these false and malicious allegations, we have filed a defamation suit in court … and will seek appropriate compensation for damages.”

We at CF have never inspected D-Wade’s crotch with a fine tooth comb and a blacklight, nor would we ever consider the possibility that the happy-go-lucky Heat forward has any malicious intent, but it’s definitely difficult to discount all of the parallels between Siohvaughn’s allegations and those of Wade’s pissed-off ex-business partner.
