Dwyane Wade to Pay Ex-Wife $5 Million in Divorce Settlement


After six years and an ugly, public battle, Dwyane Wade has reached a financial divorce settlement with his ex-wife. Wade will pay Siohvaughn Funches $5 million, according to the Chicago Sun-Times: “The settlement also includes a ‘non-disparage’ agreement in which each party must refrain from making disparaging remarks about the other. Funches-Wade also will receive the couples’ former mansion in South Holland and four cars. Brian Hurst, an attorney for Funches-Wade, argued that his client never fully agreed to all the provisions in the settlement, including the ‘non-disparage’ provision. But Cook County Circuit Court Judge John Thomas Carr decided both parties did agree on the deal and he found the settlement valid, effectively ending a six-year divorce proceeding that has drawn national attention. Exactly what will constitute a disparaging remark still needs to be hammered out, but Wade’s attorney, James Pritikin, expects violation of the terms would result in a fine. Pritikin said protection from disparaging remarks also would extend to Wade’s family members, as well as his girlfriend, actress Gabrielle Union. Outside the courtroom Monday, Funches-Wade expressed her displeasure with the decision. ‘My voice isn’t for sale, my story isn’t for sale, no thank you.’ Wade did not attend the hearing. Funches-Wade, who on Friday sat outside the Daley Center with a cardboard sign that read: ‘NBA Miami Heat star, mother of his children on the streets,’ has repeatedly said the three-time Miami Heat champion has not kept his obligation to pay $25,000 a month in spousal support. [...] Hurst said he was not happy with the judge’s decision and planned to explore his legal options. The couple married in 2002. They have two sons, Zion and Zaire. Wade filed for divorce in 2007, and the divorce was finalized in 2010. Wade was awarded sole custody of their kids in 2011.”

    And the cast for the next season of BASKETBALL WIVES begins to take shape…smh!
    (….She wasn’t with you when you were shootinging in da GYM!)…y’all saw that coming.

  • Dfrance

    She was there way before he was DWade, if any of these chics can claim they were “shooting with him in the gym” its her… figuratively speaking of course.

    She still a little crazy tho.

  • MUBWAR

    25 000 $ in spousal support? he is taking care of his kids and has to pay her spousal support. damn

  • Feez_22

    agreed. but boy,… her craziness is getting to a level once reserved for delusional side chicks who think they should be the main chick

  • Aaron

    Women be shopping!

  • TV63

    $25, 000 C’mon Lady. He should pay a college for her to get a decent job and a smaller allowance. After she gets the degree in 4 -5 years; that’s it.

  • Dfrance

    I mean, imagine you’re with a chick since HS, she’s trying to be a singer. You take her in, support her while she takes lessons and whatnot, yall get married, have 2 kids and she finally gets her record deal… then she leaves you for Trey Songz. On top of that, she’s not giving you the money the judge says she should. That type of stuff might make a person snap. lol

  • RchBtch

    He has custody, he doesn’t pay child support to her. and out on the street? really…she got a mansion, 4 cars and 5 million dollars…how many people would love to be THAT kind of ‘out in the street’..

  • bike

    Women. You can’t live with them and you can’t get them to dress up in skimpy little Nazi outfits either.

  • Feez_22

    ya lol for sure. I think that she shouldn’t do things like sitting out in the streets protesting and shouldn’t have called d-wade a woman beater but i also understand her bitterness.

    Basically, wade upgraded her, gained sole custody of the kids she raised and tried to kick her to the curb with nothing. Obviously post-divorce wade had to pay and now has to pay her 5 million but she is probably salty still.

    I just feel sorry for the kids. Wade’s 2 sons will now grow up and will see videos and articles showing their mother acting crazy… that sucks.

    Sh*t sounds like a pretty decent life to me.

  • There à joke

    She is à joke. Just like D_Wade!!!

  • Da-Meat-Hook

    In all honesty, society would tell me to “get a job”. Whether that’s fair or not is debatable.

    My beef is, Dwayne Wade still has to put in TONS work. He still has to rehab his injuries. He still has to practice on the daily. He still has to play a grueling 82 game season and the playoffs year after year.

    So if Wade is still on his grind 24/7 which allows him to live the lavish lifestyle he does, why is it okay for her to sit back and never have to work another day in her life?

  • spit hot fiyah
  • LastKings

    25,000 dollars a month and he has to giver her 5 million dollars…..im sorry that’s just to much
    for all those young black men that will be succesfull please don’t marry these hoes….if u do make sure shes rich…

  • Dfrance

    Most people are telling her to get a job. I didn’t give that scenario to justify her actions, but I can see why she might be a little nuts.

    In regards to divorce law and settlements, I’ll never understand it, I don’t think its fair at all, BUT, if thats what the law says, you have to abide it regardless of whether you think its fair or not.

  • http://soundcloud.com/tray-8 T-Ray

    Most women don’t think about the kids and that’s the sad part. They’re out there looking for a come up and what gets lost in the process is the potential damage that can be done to the kids.

  • rose

    What happened to her is happening to women all over the country and every day at the Daley Center! This is the best kept secret similar to the Catholic Church Scandal and PENN STATE .They are ripping children from loving mothers and moms are ending up homeless and penniless. They fight for their children and lose everything.

  • kylehaith1

    He has a 100 million dollar contract, in California,, the chick would get half. He should be jumping for joy that he ONLY has to pay her 5 million dollars. He got off easy

  • rose

    $500,000,000.00 is pumped into the Fatherhood Initiative and ZERO for mothers. The Initiativre lines the pockets of these court players. Check out Damons List, Saving Damon, Battered Mothers Custody Conference , Leadership Council , California Protective Parents Asscoiation, Holly Collins, Kelly Rutherford. This is happening daily.

  • rose

    The corruption at the Daley Center is unbelievable! There is tons of cronyism and the judges , lawyers , court appointed evaluators, parenting coordinaters, GALS etc. are all in on it. This corruption has been reported to FBI Chicago and Obama when he was state senator -but they have done nothing! These court people are making lots of money off of these cases. Siovaughn is not alone.

  • Markus437

    She’s getting more money than Chandler Parsons is his entire contract

  • Da-Meat-Hook

    “I didn’t give that scenario to justify her actions, but I can see why she might be a little nuts.”

    I pictured this being said with a Chris Rock voice lol

    I hear you, man. Divorce settlements are mind-boggling at times.

  • CC

    they all want the same $$$ women = whores – boys learn and have a good prenup.

    She looks able body to me go get a job.

  • Feez_22

    For sure. I won’t say all women are like this but most of the women i know can hold a grudge with the best of them.

    I believe that wade’s ex wife felt so slighted with the divorce and being upgraded by gabby union that the grudge she is holding is consuming her. It is consuming her to the point where her kids needs come secondary to her own in order to get a 1 up on the person she has the grudge with.

    She literally went on the street and protested against wade in the biggest 1st world problems protest i have seen out of a pro athlete’s ex. Wade is paying her 35 grand a month and just yesterday paid a 5 million dollar settlement on top of it. Yet, she went on the street to complain that she cannot see her kid because he plays aau basketball -_- . A simple solution = go watch his games and then take him out after like normal parents do. But nope… this woman holds such a grudge towards wade that she decided to go outside and protest with cardboards and decided to call up reporters to report on it to get back at WADE while hurting the kids in the process.

    It really is petty stuff when you delve into it… the problem is when that petty stuff starts to affect the children, it needs to be shut down.

  • http://soundcloud.com/tray-8 T-Ray

    And that cold thing is most of these women who hold a grudge are holding it because they still have strong feelings for the man. Thus letting their emotions get in the way of their logical thinking. Like they normally do lol

  • NC Sunshine

    I agree whole-heartedly with Dfrance, except about the part that this woman is crazy, I prefer to call it like I see it- she’s distraught, everything has been taken from her (Children, husband, and lastly her family unit). Then to have to deal with infidelity and non support on top of all of that is simply heart-breaking. More than that to have to restart again from scratch is not always easy for some, but in time she will regain what she is entitled to, as she was not the mistress, she was not an uncaring parent- she was a fundamental part of his existence at one time and whether anyone cares to admit it or not, but she helped to shape his future as familial input of a spouse happens to do that.

  • NC Sunshine

    I believe that you may not have read the above correctly, in that this settlement was just reached. Thereby, since 2007, he wasn’t adhering to the spousal support order of $25,000 a month; thereby, he finally agreed as this story about herr being destitute was being aired out as his dirty laundry.

  • NC Sunshine

    That’s what happens when yo cheat and this morally corrupt society accepts it as norm instead of calling it what it is – indecency to parade your whore now girlfriend around as though she is your spouse. Perhaps he should have used his college education to be more discreet!

  • apolo1704

    What about Men? They don’t think about the kids either. Dwayne was more interested in knocking up beautiful girls than his children…

  • MUBWAR

    I read the whole thing and still wondering what this had to do with wade and his ex?

  • NC Sunshine

    I suppose you are counting your own mother in that category, as she possibly worked all of her life, did what she thought was appropriate and best for her family, and tried everything within her power to make certain that she raised you well and still you spew hate on the BLACK WOMAN ! Go, retrieve immediately your decency and put behind your hypocrisy!
    Black Women are never HOES, contrary to what your perception is! This Black man, scrupulous in judgement because he knowingly began playing house when he was already married and committed to another woman. Thus, he began his own demise by continuing to submit to poor decision making.
    In closing, Wade neither thought about his kids, nor did he think about his wife when he stepped out on her, and their family- leaving them to pick up the pieces. So if you must hurl insults, make no mistakes… this young black man made inappropriate decisions and now he must pay for them, point blank – period! Grow up and recognize the importance that everyone has within a relationship, as those decisions will ulimtately shape their future or lack of one.

  • Da-Meat-Hook

    Very well said

  • http://soundcloud.com/tray-8 T-Ray

    Are you serious? I’m not one to create double standards but c’mon the guy WANTED custody of his children. Just because he chooses to date other women doesn’t mean he’s losing sight of his children’s psychological well being. He obviously wants to move on with his new significant other and children. And where do you get the evidence that he’s more interested in knocking up beautiful girls than his children? I’d love to see some facts on that.

  • Feez_22

    For sure. Hopefully this can finally end and the grudge can be over. chances are this grudge lasts at least until their kids are pushing high school lol… maybe playing aau ball will take his kids away from this whole thing. Basketball works in mysterious ways lol

  • MUBWAR

    TO EACH HIS OWN my friend. society has no business in someone’s business. As long as you are not committing actual crimes like murder & theft, your personal privacy should be respected

  • http://soundcloud.com/tray-8 T-Ray

    Did he once say anything hateful about “black women”? I wouldn’t have used his choice of words for women but he was speaking on leaching women in general. You sound like you automatically are looking for a reason to be the capped crusader for black women. No one’s saying you can’t but at least make sure he was actually addressing black women directly.

  • http://soundcloud.com/tray-8 T-Ray

    The grudge will never end between Wade and his ex but I think the kids will be just fine as they grow older lol

  • Feez_22

    lol hopefully

  • apolo1704

    The moment you leave your wife for another woman… you don’t care anymore about your children… he has money and he wants custody… but the damage he caused to his children after being the main cause of his broken marriage, it tells me that he wasn’t thinking about his children either.

  • http://soundcloud.com/tray-8 T-Ray

    So you have to stay in an unhealthy relationship just for the kids? You can separate from you’re spouse/mother of your children and still remain civil and have a healthy relationship with your kids. It’s called sucking up your pride and putting your differences aside. You can see other people and still have a healthy bond with the children. Everyone is entitled to their own opinion on the matter.

  • apolo1704

    This has nothing to do with an unhealthy relationship… don’t deceive yourself… I’m not condoning the way she is reacting now… Now this is not a healthy relationship and they are better off of each other… However, all this mess was started by him, by not enjoying his wife and looking for food outside the house… you can say whatever you want to justify his actions… but he was selfish and didn’t think about his family… don’t blame everything on women only… we, men, are very selfish as well… as soon as we get bored with our woman, we want to look other places to enjoy our manhood… Now his children could live in a big house with dad… but the sad reality is that, they don’t see dad most of the time…

    Kevin Federline agrees with you whole-heartedly.

  • Dfrance

    Man, every time Wade walks a red carpet with Gab Union, or calls her his “beautiful Black queen” on national television, it’s probably like throwing salt in the wound. smh

  • Dfrance

    Reread the story man.

  • http://soundcloud.com/tray-8 T-Ray

    I am no way in hell justifying his actions. He should be held accountable for that BUT at the same token she should not get a pass for holding a grudge and continuing to go out of her way to spite him. I think you and are on the same page just with slightly different viewpoints. I know you’re not condoning her behavior nor am I condoning Wade’s past behavior. All I’m saying is she should just let it die, collect what she’s owed and move on. Let this be the end of it.

  • Feez_22

    lol ya definitely. Pretty convenient that right after the espys airs (dwade and gabrielle looked like a power couple over there) she decides to have a protest lmao.

  • Feez_22

    I don’t agree.

    People can grow apart. Leaving your lady for a different woman can mean a plethora of things that are issues between them. However, if he didn’t care for his kids anymore he wouldn’t have pursued sole custody. period.

    Either way, he pays his ex alimony (25-35 grand a month) and is set to pay 5 million to her very soon so i’m positive he didn’t get sole custody because of the money he’d have to pay her. He got sole custody because he loves his boys. He wants to be in there lives and his ex once made it look like she kidnapped the kids.

    Yes, wade left her for a different woman. happens to 50+ percent of married women. However, leaving her shouldn’t make it a 6 year and going open season for slander when he is still taking care of you monetarily. Now… if wade wasn’t paying then she can do what she wants but he is so she should shut it and find a new man to trick his money on… LOL

    Since you love taking hearsay gossip as fact simply because “She said..” Here’s some more for you…Warning: This gossip goes AGAINST your bias…

    Maybe she SHOULD have been more discreet:

    Dywane Wade — His ex-wife, Siovaughn Funches, was reportedly manic throughout their marriage and drove a permanent wedge between the two. But she also reportedly cheated on D-Wade and was always paranoid about his whereabouts at night.

    I totally agree with the system of spousal support, but I don’t agree with the fact that athletes must make their spouse rich in the process. And that goes for both male and female athletes. But not even just athletes, everyday people. What about the guy whose a lawyer but wife throws him in jail for not making his monthly support payments, after he applied to get them lowered because he couldnt afford it. But now that he’s in the criminal system lost his license but she’s still ordering him to make his ridiculous support payment. These things happen to both men and woman everyday in different ways. I hate when females always wanna make it a “I’m every woman” thing. But in the end. Just because someones spouse makes millions, doesnt mean the other should be a millionaire as well. The average 2 parent family brings in 3 thousand a month in income and live more than fine. Why do you even deserve 25000 a month let alone 5 million?

  • Run

    This seems to be quite lopsided in Wade’s favor. She gets $5M but gets shorted on monthly spousal support, loses the kids and has no clear pathway for parlaying the marriage into greater things for herself.

    If she was the normal basketball wifey, I would say that the outcome was fair – especially given that she allegedly cheated as much as D-Wade and spent money wildly during the marriage. But her family took care of Wade when he was in high school and had nowhere to go! He lived with his ex-wife and her mother (who treated Wade like a son).

    That makes this situation different. I normally have no sympathy for athletes’ wives, because they are mostly just groupies who were successful at getting rings. This, however, is a miscarriage of justice. D-Wade cheated, and he’s worth well over $100M. She should be in the $20-40M range, NOT $5M – especially since he got the kids.

    She still came out ok ($5M, four cars and a mansion!), but she did not get what she should have been entitled to.

  • Run

    Siovaughn Funches was with D-Wade when he had nothing. He lived with her and her family rent-free!!! They took care of D-Wade like he was family, and he was NOT LeBron in high school (i.e. he was no projected NBA lock by any stretch).

    He was a very good player, but not good enough that anyone should question where their hearts were when they took him in. She and her mother helped him out of the goodness of their hearts.

    She made her own mistakes during the marriage, but she still deserves better than what she is getting now.

  • heelsnheat

    Lol. Hell nah

  • NC Sunshine

    Like you said Bill _ That’s gossip!

  • NC Sunshine

    In most states cheating or alienation of affections is a crime by Tort. While I may agree with you on some level, we are speaking about a basketball player who happens to live in the public eye. Thereby, whatever decisions that he makes will be scrutinized, no matter the occassion. Also morally, in some people’s eyes, abandoning your responsibilities to your marriage, and to then tru and justify playing house with someone else before you have beeen legally divorced is without a doubt lackluster and already causes dissension in the present relationship because the cheater is condoning the behavior and then expecting everyone around them to simply accept it. To me sin justifies sin. So when does that crime stop?

  • NC Sunshine

    Do you have to be hurt to recognize wrong behavior versus that of good? I don’t think so. No, not at all…

  • NC Sunshine

    As he should. If it were not for him, Brittney may never have gotten herself together for her kids. So while his tactics may have been different from the one in this scenario, not once while they were separated was he acting as though he was not married, nor had a responsibility to their children

  • Chynagirl

    I see everyonr has an opinion. Please look up the history.This divorce was so public. They got divorce because she tried to murder for hire on him twice. She suppose to be in jail but he was the one along with her parents said she needs help. Apparently she has some sort of mental illness and Dwayne said since high school people thought that but he did not pay any attention. Her best friend, her parents and other family members of her family. The owner of Miami heat banned her to coming to any games because of domryhinh she did to the locker room at the facility. He was granted custody because she threatened one of their kids. She said she wanted to hurt him. Several wives of Miami heat testified on his behalf. Their was an investigation and evidence ad well ad taping were presented. There is so much that why he and her family wanted the clause for the sake of their sons. Just the little I stated is publicly known. The relationship with Miss Union happened after they were legally separated. Miss Union fid not press charges because of Dwayne becausr their was a murder for hire plot also get her.
