    Dwyane Wade's marital problems have had more twists and drama than LeBron James' "The Decision."

    Now the Miami Heat star  thinks that his ex-wife Siohvaughn needs her head examined, quite literally.

    Legal papers filed in Chicago court Monday request a judge order Siohvaughn undergo a psychiatric evaluation, reports a television station in the Windy City.

    The crazytown allegation is just the latest missile fired by the warring sides in the fight for the custody of the couple's two sons.

    In the past, Siohvaughn has accused her former high school sweetheart of causing the children emotional stress for being a little too touchy feely with his new gal pal, Gabrielle Union, in front of the kids.

    Along with the allegations of infidelity, abuse and other lawsuits, Wade's ex has also spent a day in jail and has had the darnedest time holding on to a lawyer to represent her.

    Mean while, Wade has been prepping for likely the biggest NBA season of his career while dealing with mounting distractions off the court.

    Wade spent about a week in a Miami-Dade courtroom after being sued by a former business partner over a failed restaurant venture. That was settled, but probably feels like a breeze compared to his drawn out divorce and now the custody fight.

    Wade wants sole custody of Zaire and Zion.

    Wade has already told team president Pat Riley that he will miss part of training camp and the preseason to deal with his custody battle.

    It's unclear when the judge will rule on the psychiatric evaluation.
