NEWS: Dwyane Wade Fathers Baby Boy, Not With Gabrielle Union! [KingpinTV.net]

NBA star Dwyane Wade recently spent time with his new baby boy he fathered with a woman while on a break with now-fiancée Gabrielle Union, a source close to the couple tells ET.

Wade, 31, and Union, 41, who were officially engaged last week, have worked through the issue privately as a couple, and the Bring It On star was aware of the child before their engagement. Wade has known the mother of his youngest son, Aja Metoyer, “for many years.”

According to the birth certificate, obtained by ET, Wade and Metoyer have named the child, who was born on November 10, Xavier Zechariah Wade. Unclear is the status of Aja’s relationship with Damon Wayans Jr., son of In Living Color star Damon Wayans and currently a cast member on New Girl, of whom she already has 2 kids with.

Anyways, the long-time couple, who have been dating since 2009, are still very much committed to spending their lives together, and according to the Miami Heat star last week, a September wedding is likely.

A committed father, Wade has full custody of his two sons after a contentious custody battle with his ex-wife Siohvaughn Funches, and is also raising his nephew. He has made no secret that being a father is the most important role in his life, participating in President Obama’s Fatherhood Task Force and becoming a New York Times bestselling author for his book A Father First: How My Life Became Bigger than Basketball.

According to the source, Wade has never taken his fatherhood responsibility lightly and has no intention to do so now.

NEWS: Dwyane Wade To Pay 5 Million + In Divorce Settlement! [KingpinTV.net]

Dwyane Wade will pay his ex-wife Siohvaughn Funches-Wade a divorce settlement of $5 million a judge decided Monday.

The settlement also includes a “non-disparage” agreement in which each party must refrain from making disparaging remarks about the other.

Funches-Wade also will receive the couples’ former mansion in South Holland and four cars.

Brian Hurst, an attorney for Funches-Wade, argued that his client never fully agreed to all the provisions in the settlement, including the “non-disparage” provision. But Cook County Circuit Court Judge John Thomas Carr decided both parties did agree on the deal and he found the settlement valid, effectively ending a six-year divorce proceeding that has drawn national attention.

Exactly what will constitute a disparaging remark still needs to be hammered out, but Wade’s attorney, James Pritikin, expects violation of the terms would result in a fine. Pritikin said protection from disparaging remarks also would extend to Wade’s family members, as well as his girlfriend, actress Gabrielle Union.

Outside the courtroom Monday, Funches-Wade expressed her displeasure with the decision. “My voice isn’t for sale, my story isn’t for sale, no thank you.”

Dwyane Wade did not attend the hearing, according to the report.

Funches-Wade sat outside of the Daley Center with a cardboard sign that said “NBA Miami Heat star, mother of his children on the streets.” The reason for that being her claim that Wade had not been paying his $25,000 a month in spousal support, which his attorney denied in a statement.

“Dwyane Wade has made several requests over the years to settle this matter, despite Ms. Funches having 16 different attorneys and 2 arrests throughout this process,” Prtikin, the attorney, said. “Mr. Wade has provided a very generous settlement to Ms. Funches to continue to live a wonderful lifestyle for the rest of her life. Despite false allegations by Ms. Funches claiming to be ‘homeless’ and ‘destitute,’ Dwyane Wade has maintained over the years financial support to his ex-wife by providing her with income over $25,000 on a monthly basis, timely paid for her home mortgage, maintenance and security at the house, 4 cars, insurance, taxes and all of her attorney fees throughout this process.”

The couple married in 2002 and has two sons, Zion and Zaire. Wade filed for divorce in 2007, with it being finalized in 2010. In 2011, Wade was awarded sole custody of their kids.

UPDATE: Dwyane Wade’s Ex Drops Lawsuit! [KingpinTV.net]

Editors Note: This is an update from this previous post

The ex-wife of basketball star Dwyane Wade has dropped a lawsuit she filed Tuesday alleging she was owed at least $1 million from her former husband.

According to court papers, Siohvaughn Wade filed a voluntary dismissal order today at the Circuit Court of Cook County Law Division.

The previous suit was dismissed without prejudice, according to court papers.

Earlier, Siohvaughn Wade claimed that the basketball star was engaged in a conspiracy to deprive her of money she was owed. In the previous complaint, she named Dwyane Wade, his attorney, his financial adviser and companies that he had endorsement deals for allegedly refusing to uphold an agreement that required money to be placed in a joint bank account.

The two were childhood sweethearts and were married in 2002. Wade filed for divorce in 2008.

NEWS: Dwyane Wade Sued By Ex Wife! [KingpinTV.net]

CHICAGO (AP) — A legal battle that NBA star Dwyane Wade and his ex-wife have been fighting for years has a new chapter.

The Chicago Sun-Times reports that Siohvaughn Funches-Wade filed a lawsuit Tuesday alleging that Wade is violating the terms of a 2008 agreement that requires his endorsement deals be fully deposited into a joint account they both control.

According to the paper, the lawsuit claims a total of $2 million in damages from Wade, four companies involved in endorsement deals, a financial adviser and an attorney.

James Pritikin, Wade’s attorney, said the lawsuit was without merit and that he expected it to be thrown out of court. He also said that the lawsuit “mischaracterizes” the terms of the agreement involving the joint account but declined to comment further.

The lawsuit comes just weeks after Wade’s Miami Heat won the NBA championship series against the San Antonio Spurs — the kind of event that often results in more endorsement opportunities for professional athletes.

It also follows a messy divorce and custody battle that played out in Chicago courtrooms between Wade, a Chicago-area native, and his ex-wife for about five years. In 2010, Wade was granted a divorce and the next year he was awarded sole custody of the couple’s two sons.

Last year, Funches-Wade was arrested on misdemeanor charges of attempted child abduction, unlawful visitation interference and obstruction of a peace officer after an incident related to visitation. The Cook County State’s Attorney’s Office said Wednesday that all the charges except obstruction of a peace officer have been dismissed. The office said Funches-Wade is scheduled to appear in court on that charge in September.

NEWS: Gabrielle Union Believes Dwyane Wade’s Divorce Impacted Her Career! [TekniqueTheKingpin*com]

Gabrielle Union, the now longtime girlfriend of Miami Heat champion Dwyane Wade is opening up about how his divorce impacted her career. Wade was married to Siohvaughn, the mother of his two sons for eight years. During their divorce Siohvaughn called Gabrielle a homewrecker and even filed a suit accusing the actress of damaging her marriage. Earlier this week the “Think Like a Man” actress told T.T Torrez in a radio interview,

“It’s hard because, aside from loving him, I want to protect myself. I’ve built my life. I built my own brand. I built my career and my career took a hit from that madness because some people refuse to see the truth, even when it’s presented to them time and time again. I love him but at some point it’s about self preservation”.

Gabrielle added that her family relies on her for support so it’s important to maintain her brand but in the end she found a balance that works.

“I pay for my family, I pay for my momma and my daddy and my sisters and her family. D doesn’t write those checks, I do, so when something is starting to affect how I make a living, no, no, no baby. You have to put their love of their mom, their love of peace of mind and love of consistency first, and then I have to make sure I can still feed my own family. Luckily, by taking the high road and not engaging in the back and forth craziness, I was able to do both. Luckily, by doing the right thing and putting the children first, it worked out that I was able to save myself.”

NEWS: Dwyane Wade Banned Gabrielle Union From Sitting Courtside Because She Heckles Refs! [TekniqueTheKingpin*com]

If you haven’t seen actress Gabrielle Union courtside at Miami Heat games cheering on her man Dwyane Wade, don’t worry: their relationship’s fine, it’s just that he’s banned her from sitting front and center.

“I don’t sit courtside; that got killed when I became as vocal as I am,” the enthusiastic heckler told Conan O’Brien.

Union said that because of her jeers against opposing teammates and referees, Wade told her to move further away from the court as he could hear every word she said — including some jeers when her man messes up.

“I feel like, who’s gonna tell him if not me?” she laughingly told a flabbergasted Conan, admitting she’s yelled both “Airball!” and “Brick!” at her boyfriend.

Future NBA girlfriends can take a few heckler’s pointers from Union, who reportedly began dating Wade after his split from ex-wife Siohvaughn in 2007.

“I time it out perfectly for maximum effect,” she said, likening herself to aggressive basketball coach Bobby Knight and movie character “The Great Santini,” known for his in-the-face taunting of his son.

Union confessed to yelling at an aging referee, “You’ll get your Viagra if you just make a call!” and wounding a heavy-set player with a well-timed “Your Spanx are showing!'”

The ‘Think Like A Man’ star previously told ESPN her love of sports is a part of the pair’s relationship. Union grew up playing sports and rooting for the Nebraska Cornhuskers; she dated basketball player Jason Kidd in high school and was married to football player Chris Howard.
