Found March 14, 2013 on Jocks and Stiletto Jill:
The divorce and child custody proceedings between Dwyane Wade and his ex-wife Siohvaughn got pretty messy. Accusations of abuse, violence, court outburst etc. Siohvaughn maintained that the court system was biased and blinded by “Mr. Wade’s” celebrity. Well a lot of it had to do with Mr. Wade’s celebrity and a lot of it had to do with his money. But I’ve seen the court system in a way that I’ve never seen it before. I went into that place hoping to get help for my children and I, but I found judges in the courtroom quoting statistics for Mr. Wade. They would speak about him as if they were introducing the starting lineup for a basketball game. One time we were doing scheduling and we were asking when would Mr. Wade come in and testify. And she was saying, ‘Oh, I know when he’ll be in Chicago. They play the Bulls and right now they’re in Philadelphia.’ She knew all of these things and she’d say all of the time, ‘I’m a huge basketball fan.’ I was sort of hoping she’d be a fan of justice, but I found otherwise. On being painted as “violent” and a “bad mother” in the press: Well, my ex-husband had a publicist. And as far as the records reveal, it[ the retainer fee] may have been approximately $20,000 per month. When you’re able to pay someone that amount of money a month to plant your stories… On her mistakes: I’ll say this: I’m not perfect. There’s no perfect parent. As far as being intentionally absent or intentionally harmful to my children, I won’t take that because that would be incorrect.   The show also featured Sherrie Daly, the ex-wife of pro golfer John Daly. Sherrie also lost custody of her two sons in a nasty divorce battle. Is this the new trend? Deion Sanders was awarded custody of two of his sons. Chris Bosh is reportedly trying to obtain custody of his daughter and Usher Raymond won custody of his two sons. Most of the women believe that fiances and courts being swayed by celebrity is the cause. Do you think that plays into it? Are the men merely seeking to avoid paying child support?

State of the Heat: Having fun out there
