Dwyane Wade’s ex-wife Siovaughn Funches-Wade is back.
The last we heard, she was being dragged kicking and screaming from her Chicago area home by police after she refused to turn over the couple’s 2 sons to Wade’s sister for Wade’s court-ordered visitation.
The Miami Heat superstar was given full custody of his sons while Funches-Wade was allowed alternate weekends supervised visitations — in Miami.
During her session with TV’s Dr. Phil (who isn’t a real doctor), Funches-Wade accuses the Chicago court system of giving Wade preferential treatment because he’s a NBA star.
“I’ll say this: I’m not perfect. There’s no perfect parent,” she said. “As far as being intentionally absent or intentionally harmful to my children, I won’t take that because that would be incorrect.”
“Well a lot of it had to do with Mr. Wade’s celebrity and a lot of it had to do with his money. But I’ve seen the court system in a way that I’ve never seen it before. I went into that place hoping to get help for my children and I, but I found judges in the courtroom quoting statistics for Mr. Wade. They would speak about him as if they were introducing the starting lineup for a basketball game.
“One time we were doing scheduling and we were asking when would Mr. Wade come in and testify. And she was saying, ‘Oh, I know when he’ll be in Chicago. They play the Bulls and right now they’re in Philadelphia.’ She knew all of these things and she’d say all of the time, ‘I’m a huge basketball fan.’ I was sort of hoping she’d be a fan of justice, but I found otherwise.”
Funches-Wade, who is still counting Wade’s money, wonders why he pays a publicist $20,000 a month but can’t pay her child support.
“Well, my ex-husband had a publicist. And as far as the records reveal, [Wade's publicist's fee] may have been approximately $20,000 per month. When you’re able to pay someone that amount of money a month to plant your stories…”
