Dwyane Wade and his mother arriving at the Cook County courthouse yesterday
There has been a new development in the Dwyane Wade divorce case that casts doubt on Siohvaughn Wade’s allegations against Wade and Gabrielle Union.
As you know, the estranged wife of the Miami Heat superstar filed court documents accusing Wade of making out with his jump off Gabby Union in front of the couple’s two sons.
Wade struck back saying his former wife is delusional and unstable, among other things. Well, it is now beginning to look like Siohvaughn might be a crazed woman scorned who is using her two sons to get back at Wade and Union.
Dare I say that I was wrong about Union after all?
Here’s what we know so far:
Siohvaughn Funches was served with a warrant and arrested for contempt of court when she showed up at the Daley Center shortly after 11 a.m. this morning.
Funches arrived at the courthouse with $10,000 in hand to pay for her bond, and she was released an hour later.
The judge in the case, Marya Nega, issued the warrant Monday, saying she was tired of Funches’s antics and what she called a pattern of behavior by Siohvaughn Funches throughout the course of the divorce proceedings.
“When things don’t go according to Mrs. Wade’s way all of a sudden the phone’s turned off,” said Nega, when Wade’s attorney claimed she couldn’t reach her. The judge also said Siohvaughn was “beginning to spiral out of control.”
Siohvaughn, who clearly feels a sense of entitlement, has defied other court orders in the past.
For example, Nega said, Siohvaughn Wade has not followed an order to make sure the couple’s two children talk to their father every day. Nega also noted the children were not at their Chicago school last week to be picked up by Dwyane Wade’s sister as the judge had ordered.
The judge said her main concern was what the couple’s ongoing divorce was doing to the children and suggested she may order custody be given to Dwyane Wade.
“Maybe it’s time for the kids to go live with Dad for a month or two,” the judge said.
