(Newser) – The estranged wife of Dwyane Wade has filed suit against his actress girlfriend Gabrielle Union, saying their relationship has caused the star Miami Heat guard's two sons emotional distress. She alleges the couple has gotten too frisky in front of the boys, ages 8 and 2. Dwyane Wade called the lawsuit "baseless and meritless," and Union issued a statement insisting the allegations are false.

The lawsuit by Siohvaughn Wade is the latest twist in a nasty back-and-forth divorce battle that has waged for years. It alleges Union "engaged in sexual foreplay" in front of the boys, which "severely inflicted the Plaintiffs emotionally and mentally." Noting that Union has played a "seductress" as an actress, it adds, "Defendant has apparently decided to take her role beyond the films and into the home of a married man, Dwyane Wade, in the presence of his two minor children."
