Dwyane Wade’s Divorce Reportedly Could Cost $10 Million

by August 08, 2013

Miami Heat superstar Dwyane Wade has settled with his ex-wife for $5 million, but the total cost of the legal proceedings could double that figure. Per the Miami Herald: “Two of the dozen or so lawyers in two states involved with Wade’s split from high school sweetheart Siohvaughn Funches say that the past few months in the six-year battle would undoubtedly make the meter reach that figure. ‘We were at about $8 million last year,’ said one lawyer who asked not to be named. ‘He’s paying more for lawyers than what he is paying his wife for the settlement. It was a complicated case, but it may have become personal.’ (Sources say) D-Wade has been paying for his and Funches’ attorneys from a special bank account funded partly with a small portion of his Heat salary, and partly with endorsements. There have been several appeals in the case, and Wade’s pending defamation lawsuit against Funches, which also ran up the tab.”
