NBA: Judge orders Dwyane Wade's wife to court

Associated Press

CHICAGO A judge in Chicago says if basketball star Dwyane Wade's wife doesn't show up for her divorce hearing, she will order law enforcement to take her to court.

At the hearing Monday morning, Cook County Circuit Judge Marya Nega said the contentious breakup involving the Miami Heat guard and Siohvaughn Wade was "beginning to spiral out of control."

Wade attended court Monday morning but his estranged wife did not appear. The judge delayed the hearing until the afternoon to give Siohvaughn Wade time to get to court.

Lawyer James Pritikin plans to argue that Dwayne Wade be given physical custody of their two children.

Siohvaughn Wade has filed a lawsuit claiming her husband's relationship with actress Gabrielle Union is causing her and their children distress.
