Dwyane Wade STD Claim NOT True, Friend Says

Posted: Updated:

As Dwyane Wade's divorce proceedings continue to play out, new tidbits emerge. The latest concerns an old claim that the Miami Heat star gave his wife an STD.

Wade's wife Siohvaughn claimed in January 2009 that the All Star gave her chlamydia, but a family friend says the allegation is untrue. TMZ reports that Andrea Williams, described as "a close friend of the Wades," testified that Siohvaughn previously said she got the disease from a man she was seeing while married to Wade. Wade's wife dropped the claim in February and the Miami guard sued her over the allegation.

Dwyane Wade is seeking full custody of his two sons and wants his wife to undergo a psychological examination. A devastating legal petition calls Siohvaughn "unstable, dishonest, unbalanced, unwilling to accept responsibility for her actions, not of good character, and therefore, unfit to be a custodial parent." Wade's wife, meanwhile, says her husband is "guilty of extreme and repeated mental cruelty."
