Siohvaughn Funches-Wade Says Dwyane Wade Isn’t Paying What He Owes Her, And Claims That She’s Still Being Kept From Her Sons
Somebody needs to call Iyanla, because the messiness between Dwyane Wade and Siovaughn Funches-Wade that keeps playing out in public needs to get fixed for the sake of their sons. Funches-Wade spoke with the site Jocks and Stiletto Jill about the state of her life now, and she claims that reported monetary settlements never really happened, and that she’s behind on her mortgage and has no car insurance because the money he allegedly owes her hasn’t been given. She also opened up about trying to pursue a law degree and why she says Wade is trying to “control” her. Here are some of the most interesting tidbits from the interview:
Jill: Is there a discrepancy between what you are receiving from Dwyane each month as part of your divorce settlement and what has been reported? There were reports of you receiving $1 million plus $25K a month in spousal support.
SFW: There has been no settlement PERIOD. Not even close to the $25k a month reported either. As a matter of fact, Mr. Wade is frequently late on the items he is supposed to pay for. I’ve recently received a noticed about the mortgage on my Chicago home being behind $75,000 and my car insurance has been canceled.
Jill: Ok, so why aren’t you working?
SFW: I’m currently in law school, the course doesn’t really allow for me to have a full time job.
Jill: Has law school always been a goal or did this come following the issues you’ve had with your lawyers during the case
SFW: It has always been something I wanted to do. I put my life on hold when Mr. Wade’s career took off. I raised our son. Even now Mr. Wade is practicing alienation with our children. He’s trying to prevent me from seeing my son’s on Mother’s Day this weekend. Usually the boys fly to Chicago to spend it with me but this year Mr. Wade wants to change that.
Jill: That’s interesting considering the Heat play the Bulls this weekend in Chicago. Why do you think he wants to alienate your sons from you. What is the all the “animosity” stemming from?
SFW: It’s about control. He wants to control me, that’s what abusers do. And it’s about money. He wants to create the image of a good family guy for his sponsors, he’ll do anything for money.
Jill: Do you think there is a way that you and Dwyane can come together and co-parent without being so reliant on courts and lawyers? If yes, what are those steps in your mind? If he retains custody, would you consider moving back to Miami to be closer to your sons?
SFW: Move to Miami for what? He won’t let me see my sons now so there’s no reason to believe he would if i was in Miami full time. And it’s reached a point now where my oldest son doesn’t want to visit at all. My youngest has been told I don’t want to see them. The other day he got on the phone with me and said he was told that I didn’t want to come see him. I have finals, I’m trying to grow as a person. Mr. Wade is vindictive and he’s trying to turn my sons against me.
I paid out of my own pocket for a mediator to try to resolve the issues. The session was set and Mr. Wade just didn’t show up. No excuse, no call. I’ve made the effort.
According to Jocks and Stiletto Jill, Funches-Wade also stated that Wade has retaliated against her multiple times for doing interviews by dragging her back to court and by trying to file suit to make her go back to work. She’s upset about this because she says that he knows that will impact her ability to finish Law school first. It’s all a shame, but at the same token, this expectation for Dwyane to still pay for everything for her and the way it seems that she’s feeling entitled just sitting back waiting for bills to be paid comes off kind of backwards. But I hope that she can keep the relationship she has with her boys and that Wade isn’t restricting that. But only Siovaughn, Dwyane, and God knows what’s really the truth and what’s really going on with these two…
