If you didn’t know that Siohvaughn Funches was fighting tooth and nail to keep her home, her cars and her lifestyle, and get what she feels Dwyane Wade owes to her, this might be the most obvious sign that things are more dire for her than ever. Funches tried to sue Wade just last week for almost $2 million dollars:
According to court documents, Siohvaughn is alleging that Wade is in direct breach of a 2008 agreement, which requires the shooting guard to to fully deposit funds from his endorsement deals into a joint bank account that they both have control over. Siohvaughn is claiming that her ex-husband has been endorsed by four companies recently, but she has yet to see the money because he and his financial advisers have concocted a scheme to get around the agreement. She also complains that she has been unable to pay her mortgage, home owner’s insurance and car insurance. As a result, she’s claiming that she’s owed at least $1 million. In total the suit claims $2 million in damages.
But when things fell apart, she dropped the suit just days later. She’s done numerous interviews, even speaking out about her situation on Dr. Phil of all places, and now she’s taking her issues with the father of her children (he has custody of their two sons if you weren’t aware) out to the streets.
Deadspin just posted a photo that someone sent them of Funches in Chicago this week (possibly today), sitting down with a friend (or family member), with a sign that says “NBA Miami Heat Star Mother Of His Children On The Streets.” As they put it, Funches was ranting to strangers coming up and taking pictures of her about Wade’s $90 million dollar contracts and “houses on the water.” He has all that, but yet she’s struggling as she’s told many people already.
I really don’t know what to say about all this, it’s just disappointing. I don’t know what her financial situation truly is and what agreements she had with Wade that he is or isn’t living up to (shame on him if he’s not, but shame on her if she’s just living off of him), but literally sitting on the street badmouthing that brotha isn’t going to fix things. Siovauhgn has a lot of work to do. Literally and figuratively…
