(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."

I for one am sick and tired of the total disregard of marriage by celebraties, and people in general in this country. Gabrielle, SHAME on you! I don't care if Wade is separated, going through a divorce, whatever, he's still "MARRIED," and it's sad that you have "settled," how weak of you. I think if more wives sued the "other" woman for adultery, it would make women think twice about getting involved with a married man. Go get her Mrs. Wade! And get in his pockets, too!

GET ALL U CAN GIRL, I HATE CHEATERS. HE ONLY WANTS CUSTODY OF THE BOYS TO KEEP FROM PAYING CHILD SUPPORT. HE WAS SO CONCERNED ABOUT THEM, HE WOULD HAVE TRIED TO MAKE HIS MARRIAGE WORK. AND NO MATTER WHAT , GABRIELLE HE IS STILL A MARRIED MAN EVEN IF HE HAS BEEN SEPARATED FOR 2YRS.
