By now, you’ve seen the infamous photo of Dwyane Wade‘s ex-wife Siohvaughn Funches laying on ground with a huge sign above her. Ideally, she wants you to think, “How could he do that to her?!” “Poor lady!” The reality? All signs point to this woman being completely nuts.
Number one. Let’s all agree that we question the judgement of any mother who would make such a scene over money. If that sign said, “I want to see my kids” I would have 10% more empathy.
Number two. Due to her behavior, she doesn’t even have custody of the children. Dwyane has sole custody.
Here’s a statement from the Dwyane Wade camp:
“Dwyane Wade and his ex-wife Siohvaughn Funches have reached a financial settlement. The agreement was submitted in court last Tuesday, July 16 prior to Ms. Funches’ recent unfounded and erratic public display outside the courthouse this past Friday. Dwyane Wade has made several requests over the years to settle this matter, despite Ms. Funches having 16 different attorneys and 2 arrests throughout this process. Mr. Wade has provided a very generous settlement to Ms. Funches to continue to live a wonderful lifestyle for the rest of her life.
Despite false allegations by Ms. Funches claiming to be “homeless” and “destitute,” Dwyane Wade has maintained over the years financial support to his ex-wife by providing her with income over $25,000 on a monthly basis, timely paid for her home mortgage, maintenance and security at the house, 4 cars, insurance, taxes and all of her attorney fees throughout this process. Ms. Funches has made a mockery of homelessness which is a serious and personal issue for Mr. Wade as his mother was homeless for a period of time when he was a child.
Dwyane Wade was awarded sole custody of their sons by the court in 2011. The safety and wellbeing of his children are his main priority. Due to Ms. Funches’ current unstable mental state, her visitation will be determined by the court. Mr. Wade continues to hope that one day he will have a civil relationship with his ex-wife for the sake of their sons.”
