Hell hath no fury like an NBA wife scorned.
Several videos have popped up over the weekend showing Dwyane Wade’s ex-wife telling her side of the former couple’s messy divorce and custody battle over their two children.
Sitting in front of the Daley Center in the heart of downtown Chicago on Friday, Siohvaughn Funches and two other women held up signs that accused the Miami Heat star of withholding money and forcing her to scrap and save to provide for their two sons, Zaire and Zion.
The couple were married in 2002 and divorced in 2007. Funches spoke of judges mistreating her and favoring her husband. At times, she even suggested the court favored the three-time NBA champion over other men who went to jail for failure to pay child support.
According to the Daily News, Funches said a court order required her to be paid by the companies Wade endorses, but thus far no checks have arrived.
The two were high school sweethearts, but Wade was granted sole custody of the boys in 2011. Already showing flashes of his father on the court, Zaire, 11, is ranked as one of the best fifth-graders in his class.
The Daily News also stated that Wade will not pay Funches unless she keeps quiet on their past relationship. However, she has refused that request, and said: "I told them very clearly — my voice is not for sale."
The video below via Deadspin, shows roughly six minutes of Funches on the street.
