Dwyane Wade Suing Ex-Partner For 100M

Dwyane Wade is suing a former business partner for $100 million, claiming the man made false statements about alleged drug use and called the Miami Heat guard a bully and coward.

Wade’s lawsuit claims Richard von Houtman is guilty of libel and slander. One e-mail to then-Heat coach Pat Riley claims that Wade and other Heat players smoked marijuana and used steroids.

Another e-mail asks Riley to pressure Wade to settle a lawsuit filed by von Houtman over a failed restaurant venture.

Wade’s lawsuit filed in Miami-Dade Circuit Court claims von Houtman’s e-mails and public statements were false and that they harmed Wade’s reputation.

Von Houtman did not immediately respond Thursday to e-mail and telephone requests for comment.
