Gabrielle Union probably got a chuckle out of this.
Siohvaughn Wade, estranged wife of NBA star Dwyane Wade and archenemy of his current squeeze, the Bring It On star, has been taken into custody by Chicago police after skipping out on a hearing yesterday in the Wades' contentious divorce case.
According to a spokesman for the Cook County Sheriff's Department, Siovaughn, accompanied by her attorney, turned herself in around 11:15 a.m. today and brought along the required $10,000 bond.
She is currently in a basement holding cell at the Daley Center jail complex and is expected to post bail and be released within the next couple of hours.
An APB was put out for her arrest after she failed to show up for a proceeding yesterday, angering Cook County Circuit Judge Marya Nega, who bitterly complained that Wade (née Siovaughn Funches) had ignored a slew of court orders. The judge also threatened to give full custody to her basketball-playing hubby.
The Wades have been engrossed in a nasty court battle ever since the Miami Heat hero filed for divorce in 2007. Last week, Siovaughn sued Union, claiming her and Dwyane's PDA and "sexual foreplay" had caused distress to the pair's two young children.
The next hearing has been set for May 28.
