The Miami Heat player has settled his divorce proceedings with Siohvaughn Wade, the mother of his two children, on Friday morning, June 25.
Gabrielle Union's basketball star boyfriend Dwayne Wade is free to wed the actress after finalizing his divorce from his estranged wife. Miami Heat player Wade, who is currently dating the "Bring It On" star, has been embroiled in divorce proceedings with Siohvaughn Wade, the mother of his two children, since 2007.
Union was dragged into the feud earlier this year, on May 5, when Siohvaughn filed suit against Wade, accusing him of engaging in "sexual foreplay" with the actress in front of their two sons, aged eight and two. The proceedings hit the headlines again when Wade's wife was jailed days later after missing a scheduled divorce hearing in Chicago, Illinois, which landed the sportsman with temporary custody of the children.
But now the parties can move on, the eight-year marriage was officially dissolved by a Chicago judge on Friday morning, June 25. The pair will still have to work out details including custody of the two children and division of marital assets.
