Dwyane Wade’s official response to ex-wife’s sit-in protest

Dwyane Wade's official response

Miami Heat star Dwayne Wade has released an official response to his ex-wife Siohvaughn Funches’s sit-in protest on the streets of Chicago.

During her protest on Friday, July 19, Funches appeared to sleep on the sidewalk outside a Chicago courthouse while a friend hovered over her with a homemade sign that implied Funches was homeless.

In a video uploaded to YouTube, Funches complained that Wade withheld funds from her that should have been deposited in a joint bank account. She also said Wade, who was granted full custody of their 2 sons in 2011, was deliberately keeping the children from her.

In a statement released Monday, Wade’s attorney, James B. Pritikin, disputed Funches-Wade’s claims that she was destitute. He said Wade agreed to pay Funches $5 million in a divorce settlement.

“Mr. Wade has provided a very generous settlement to Ms. Funches to continue to live a wonderful lifestyle for the rest of her life,” Pritikin wrote.

Pritikin added: “Dwyane Wade has made several requests over the years to settle this matter, despite Ms. Funches having 16 different attorneys and 2 arrests throughout this process.”

But if Wade was sympathetic to Funches, he had a strange way of showing it.

Wade took to his Instagram account on Friday and wrote “#REALLY #whatyoutalkingaboutwillis #aintnobodygottimeforthat.”

He was immediately attacked by his female Instagram followers for his apparent insensitivity. Wade followed up his post 2 days later, writing: “I had my headphones on.. Did y’all hear something????..#stopit #dontbefooled #storiessellpapers #movingon”

Pritikin’s full statement is below:

“Dwyane Wade and his ex-wife Siohvaughn Funches have reached a financial settlement. The agreement was submitted in court last Tuesday, July 16 prior to Ms. Funches’ recent unfounded and erratic public display outside the courthouse this past Friday. Dwyane Wade has made several requests over the years to settle this matter, despite Ms. Funches having 16 different attorneys and 2 arrests throughout this process. Mr. Wade has provided a very generous settlement to Ms. Funches to continue to live a wonderful lifestyle for the rest of her life.

Despite false allegations by Ms. Funches claiming to be “homeless” and “destitute,” Dwyane Wade has maintained over the years financial support to his ex-wife by providing her with income over $25,000 on a monthly basis, timely paid for her home mortgage, maintenance and security at the house, 4 cars, insurance, taxes and all of her attorney fees throughout this process. Ms. Funches has made a mockery of homelessness which is a serious and personal issue for Mr. Wade as his mother was homeless for a period of time when he was a child.

Dwyane Wade was awarded sole custody of their sons by the court in 2011. The safety and wellbeing of his children are his main priority. Due to Ms. Funches’ current unstable mental state, her visitation will be determined by the court. Mr. Wade continues to hope that one day he will have a civil relationship with his ex-wife for the sake of their sons.”

      time & time again this woman has been proven a liar..when will one of her family members step in & get her the obvious psychological help that she needs? or are they in on this embarrassing fiasco as well? This kind of behavior is not going to help her get her children back.

      I dont think she is lying…this woman has had to sue him because he wasnt making the payments until she filed a lawsuit. The lawsuit was dropped once she recieved payment. Some of yall need to realize that D Wade is using his financial power to bully her. Yall can say she crazy all she wants but I see a broken spirit. It was Sio family that took him in when he didnt have anything!

      I watched the video and read some of her interviews in the past, she was about to be homeless because the house he was paying for – per the agreement, he stopped making payments and the house was about to go into foreclosure! How can this woman maintain a decent job with the public already having a crazy perception of her!!!

      This is why I don’t like him. He is busy flexing on EBT with his momma on stage, like she was always taking care of him. But Sio’s family was the one who took him in and took care of him. Yeah, she may look crazy, but im sure some of us Roses has had a bf try to make us out to be the crazy one, when all along it was the bf who was doing us dirty and all that. I don’t care for him.

      I think she is hurt and that is driving her crazy. She thinks any attention from him will somehow validate her feelings.
      Truth is, all these shennanigans won’t get her kids back any faster. They just further prove his case that she is unstable.
      She should take time out and get help (Iyanla maybe?) then come back stronger and use that $8 million to get her kids back in her life.

      I dont know her TRUE state of MIND,People say she isnt Krazy People say she isnt. IdK
      I do Know this is not the right way.
      She Needs to get her Mind right,GO somewhere REFLecT and Show Dwade and whoever else she NEEDS to prove her point too that,SHes GONNA MAKE IT AND FIGHT for her BOYS diffrently.

      Since she doesn’t have custody of her children, shouldn’t she have plenty of free time to find a JOB?? I want to have sympathy for her because I do believe she is acting out of hurt, but at some point you have to stop the antics and grow up. She has yet to do anything that would actually HELP her case. All of the lies and drama only strengthens Dwyane’s case

      I have mixed feelings. On one hand, I feel sorry for her. On the other, I’m like maybe it’s time to accept some responsibility and stop making yourself look like a fool. Unfortunately these men don’t care about the kind of pain that they cause when they decide that the one who’s been there all along, isn’t good enough anymore once they’ve found something “better”. I just can’t stand to see her letting him see just how badly he’s destroyed her life. He’ll never care. Not that he’s a bad guy but clearly he’s moved on. And she may be about the drama but still no reason to put herself out there like this. I say get it together, seek counseling, go back to school, learn a trade, for Christ sake do something to regain your dignity, other than wait for him to admit he was wrong or cut you a damn check. Her kids are not benefiting at all if she’s not 100%. If not for anything else, she should do it for her kids.

With the child support she would have gotten she could have started her own damn business and flourished just fine. She’s doing all this dumb ish and it’s not going to help her win her kids back and quite honestly she’s not showing her kids they’re her priority. Sometimes you just have to live, learn, move on.
