Dwyane Wade's Ex -- Psych Tests Demanded in Court

Dwyane Wade's ex-wife needs a checkup from the neck up ... according to the attorney appointed to look out for the former couple's kids during their ongoing child custody trial.

According to new documents filed in Chicago -- and obtained by TMZ -- the attorney, Lester L. Barclay claims, "There is a question as to the mental condition and violent tendencies" of Siohvaughn Wade.  

In the filing, Barclay claims Siohvaughn's own testimony has revealed a history of extreme violence -- and he believes she has "homicidal" and "suicidal" tendencies.

Bottom line ... Barclay is asking the court to force Siohvaughn to undergo a psychiatric evaluation with a court-approved psychiatrist -- and he wants their two kids to stay with Dwyane while the trial continues.

If I was your wife hon maybe none of this would be happening. I said maybe because anything is possible. The fact that Lebron James is in Miami is good because his prsence will bring the funds. However, his 666 signs as ok signs that he does at a game was scary enough along with his presence in this young mans life.
These professional ball players belong to a more exclusive club of ball players along with Jay-Z and others of that monetary stature are a part of. I would love to be at those games.

This is sad imagen the girl is broken because he decided he didnt love her anymore, has two babies with her and has to deal with him respectfully..
They have history and she was with him from when he had nothing, its as though they are digging deep too get at her and also destroy her chances for having her babies.
Imagen if she was so mental dont you think he would have seriously avoided being her husband and having how many babies with her??
Since leaving her its as though he sees her as trash, sad what fame and money can do too others..

The first time I saw D-wades wife was on a Christmas day game against the Lakers about five years ago. She and Dwayne were interviewed, and she was wearing an outfit designed specifically for a street hooker. Her boobs were about to burst out and her nipples were a fraction of an inch from being exposed. I asked myself that afternoon, who in their right mind would dress that way on Christmas day and on national television. What came out of her mouth sounded somewhat childish and incoherent. I guess her true state of mind was then being exposed to the world. This woman has some issues that perhaps medication and therapy are in grave order.

I feel bad for Siohvaughn. I can't imagine being with a man before he had a darn penny, helping him make it in life, and then when he makes it, you dont love me anymore??? I am sure that the emotional stress of all this would cause "mental health" issues. It in no way means "crazy". I wish her the best.

How sad look at what fame and fortune has done, she was with him when he was nothing, he reaches the stars and she is no longer needed...
And then on top of things is throwing alot of serious acussations at her, im sure if she was so mentally retarded that he wouldnt have been with her so long niether married her..

This is totally and utterly digging deep too rub dirt too her name, amazing what money can do, and its a shame he has forgotten where he has come from..
She is hurt bad anyone can clearly see that...

Most men when they get money they think they can upgrade a woman like a used car...Siohvaughn went wrong by not letting Karma get the best of him, look at Mel Gibson for example Karma came back for him and in the end the wife wins.

It is sad and she was indeed hurt but we (the general public) don't know the specifics of this case and we'll likely never know anything above web-hearsay. Much love and blessing to Siohvaughn in the future. Remember that you have a lot of life to live.

Could it be possible that a decision has been made to get her help because she really needs it? Based on everything that has been revealed throughout the divorce this woman has serious issues. As long as things are going her way then she's probably very easy to get along with but if they don't she has been known to go off. Some of the revelations came from her own friends.

How many lawyers has she gone through? The law doesn't change because you can't get what you want. Once the new lawyer comes on and receives the information associated with the claims they will tell their client what they think they can do to control the outcome. Hopefully this is what their client wants. Sometimes after reviewing the information they realize that this is a no-win situation. Unfortunately, clients like her don't want to hear this resulting in disputes with the attorney. Finally the attorney gets fired.

As for her being with him when he had nothing, this is nothing new. 9 times out of 10 she didn't have eye water to cry with either. When he was young he had crazy basketball skills. At some point it was realized that he was good enough to get a scholarship to play in college and eventually go pro. She's dating him during this time. I'm willing to say at some point she weighted her options and he was the best option. He liked her so he was cool with the relationship and saw no reason to leave.i can promise you that once he got to college and everyone say his skills he had plenty of options based on the possibility of him making it pro. People change and the person that he may have fell in love with changed to the point that he simply go sick and tired of the mental anguish associated with the relationship so he wanted out.

What would people say if the shoe were on the other foot and she did the same thing in her efforts to divorce him. Most women in society would say go for it. You don't need him. You make or have all the money. Get rid of that loser before he hurts you physically. Well the show is on the other foot. He should leave for the same reason. Whether he's broke or rich he don't need to be in a marriage with a woman who makes him miserable. Eventually it's going to destroy him, her and possibly the children mentally and physically.

Peace!!!!

People get married and divorced everyday, he probably feel out of love - I'm guessing because she is a nutcase. Obviously, if the children's "Court appointed" attorney thinks she needs a mental evaluation, it must be pretty serious. Sometimes people don't show their true colors for quite awhile.

Women, unlike basketball, in romance or love you don't receive guarantee contracts. People split up all the time for a plethora of reasons. Women leave men all the time for no other reason than they grew bored, or they discovered that marriage actually took some work. And why is that when a woman leaves a man, its potrayed as a liberating, emancipating act, but when a man leaves a woman its characterized as his being derelict, or abandoning her? ONLY IN AMERICA!!!
