Dwyane Wade Reveals He Gives Ex-Wife $25K A Month, Refutes “Homeless” Claims


This past Friday, Dwyane Wade’s ex-wife,  Siohvaughn Funches-Wade, seemingly had a meltdown, holding a makeshift press conference on a Chicago street. Funches-Wade claimed that the divorce and custody battle with Wade has made her unable to visit her two sons and has placed her in dire financial straits. Today, Wade’s lawyer released a statement refuting her claims; noting that she has been receiving $25,000 in monthly support from the Miami Heat basketball player. 

According to Wade’s legal team, Funches-Wade has gone through 16 lawyers and also has four cars. The full statement from Wade’s attorney, Jim Pritikin, reads:

“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.”

If you’re really bringing in $25K a month, homelessness is probably by your own choice.It seems like Siohvaughn Funches-Wade’s stunt has only made her look even more unsuitable as a parent in the court’s eyes.

    I’m sure divorce can be very hard on both parties, but you know what? People get divorced every day. She acts like they were married 25 years and he just up and left her. Give me a break. At some point people have to move on and just build a new life for themselves. That means learning how to earn your own income and take care of yourself. Lots of women do it, it’s not something new. She knows darn well she isn’t homeless. What she is, is full of hate, hurt, and desperation because she’s having to face the fact that her marriage is over and her ex has moved on. And while I’m sure it’s not easy; she’s had more than a few years to face the fact. I truly hope she uses some of the money she got in her settlement and seeks professional help. It’s clear she isn’t handling her divorce well at all, and at this point, she’s only hurting herself and her kids. No matter what you are going through, have some dignity and respect for yourself, and if not for yourself, do it for your kids. They will remember everything.

    She brings all this drama on herself. She trying to get public sympathy for some strange reason. Which all this does is confirms why DWade has full custody of his children. And if she keeps this up, she made even lose some of that 25K a month.
