Dewayne Wade’s ex-wife Siohvaughn Funches camps on the streets over unpaid child-support.


In an attempt to be heard, Dwyane Wade's ex-wife, Siohvaughn Funches took to streets of Chicago on Friday afternoon with claims that the Miami Heat star is an absentee father who has been insolently late on his child support.

The story broke almost immediately after Deadspin.com published a picture on Friday showing a woman camping outside in from of Daley Center in Chicago with a sign saying “she is one the street, ex-wife of Miami Heat star”

Funches is Wade's ex-wife and together they both have two children, Wade who is currently dating actress Gabrielle Union filed for divorce from his high school sweet-heart Funches-Wade in 2007. Their 2010 divorce was a nasty one which left Wade with sole custody of the children in 2011 while his ex-wife Funches retained visitation rights and left with a $1 million lump sum and $25,000 per month for child support; however, their post-divorce relationship has turned out to even nastier.

In their most recent  court battle which preceded Funches protest,  the former wife of the Miami Heat star had a rather grueling week in which she parted ways with her attorney,  and was later arrested by Circuit Court Judge Thomas Carr for appearing late in court. Poor girl, smh
According to Funches-Wade, the judge arrested her because she came to court late from taking a final exam at her law school program. Then, her lawyer went behind her back and dropped a lawsuit she filed against Wade over proceeds from the NBA champion's endorsement deals, she maintained. Funches also claims that her attorney (former) Michael Haber negotiated a settlement agreement without consulting with her or gaining her permission.

After Friday’s hearing, she had enough, the ex-wife of the NBA star sat down on a mat outside the downtown courts building, with her sign and her sister and mother at her side supporting her.
"Dwyane Wade is offering to pay only some of what he owes me if I sign an agreement never again to discuss what happened in our marriage or with our children. I refuse," the ex-wife said. "I finally told Carr I just wanted to end the case and keep my freedom and my voice. I told him I didn't want anything from Dwyane. The judge demanded the trial continue. I couldn't believe it."
