NBA player Dwayne Wade has been awarded full custody of his two sons Zaire,8, and Zion,3.
“I am very thankful that the court has given me custody of my boys and they are already at home with me in Miami and settling in,” the Miami Heat guard said in a statement on Friday. “Going through a custody trial was difficult and I wish it hadn’t been necessary, but, I felt it was the only way that I could continue to play an active part of my kids’ lives and provide them with a happy and stable home. My hope is that their mother will also choose to play a healthy role in their lives and we can all move on from this in a positive way.”
“This is a very difficult decision for this court,” Cook County Circuit Judge Renee Goldfarb said in her ruling. “This will be an abrupt change for the children. However, this court has very grave reservations about (Siohvaughn Wade’s) ability and/or willingness to ease these children through a transition.”
Siohvaughn Wade, who up until now had full custody of her children, will now get to see her boys every other weekend.
“Unfortunately I think the court got it wrong and it’s not in the best interest of these children and fails to recognize that Siohvaughn Wade has been a wonderful mother and a provider for these children, educationally, emotionally and physically,” said Siohvaughn Wade’s lawyer, Michael A. Haber.
