Desperate times call for desperate measures…
Since pictures of his ex-wife started making rounds around the web on Friday night, the drama between Miami Heat guard Dwyane Wade and his former spouse has been the topic of conversation.
On the smoldering hot day of July 19th, Wade’s former spouse, Siovaughn Funches took to the streets of downtown Chicago and sat in front of the city’s Daley Center to let the world know that Wade is a deadbeat dad, who has left her empty-handed and without a roof to live under.
Looking distraught and disheveled, the mother of their two children held a cardboard poster reading, “NBA Heat Miami Heat Star Mother of His Children on the Street.” Many people believed her to be homeless, But according to reports, she was in fact protesting against her lost custody battle with the NBA champion…
In the clips below, Siovaughn tells her side of the story to concerned onlookers. According to her, Wade intentionally limits and interferes with Funches’ parenting time, by cutting out 8-9 hours of her time with their children. In addition, she says she has been forced to care for her children with dwindling saving, due to a lack of financial child support.
As you know, Funches filed a million-dollar lawsuit against Wade over proceeds from his endorsement deals earlier this month. But in Siovaughn’s words, her own lawyer (who by the way, Wade is paying for) went behind her back and dropped the lawsuit without her consent.
This is definitely not a good look for her or Dwyane Wade, for that matter. Watch Funches tell her story down below.
