Late last week, we saw the ex-wife of Dwyane Wade, Siohvaughn Funches, literally hit the streets of Chicago with a sign claiming that Wade left the mother of his children on the streets. The following day, D-Wade went on Instagram to react to Funches' display, without giving much of a verbal response, except for three hashtags.
Earlier today, D-Wade's lawyer has released a lengthy statement, detailing the financial terms of their divorce settlement:
"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."
Wow, $25,000 on a monthly basis?! There's no way Funches is burning through that type of cash every month, right? Like Wade, we just hope these two can one day find themselves on the same page.
