http://m.nydailynews.com/1.1404398Miami Heat guard Dwyane Wade’s ex-wife says she is homeless because he dropped the ball as a family man.
"He owes me quite a large sum of money," said Siohvaughn Funches, camped outside the Daley Center in Chicago Friday.
Funches held a homemade sign saying the NBA champion left her homeless to humiliate him in his hometown:
"NBA Miami Heat Star Mother of His Children On the Streets."
Funches ranted that Wade's multimillion-dollar contracts should have scored a few points for a special bank account created for her.
A court order, she insisted, requires the companies Wade endorses to pay her handsomely. So far, she says, the money has not arrived.
"So I took care of myself and our two children, purely living off of savings," Funches told Chicago radio station WLS. "The savings dwindled down. I was advised by my lawyer to find a bankruptcy attorney."
Wade refuses to pay up, she alleges, unless she agrees to keep quiet about their relationship.
But, as Funches has made abundantly clear, she will not refrain from speaking her mind about their past and the cash.
"I told them very clearly — my voice is not for sale."
The high school sweethearts married in 2002 and divorced in 2007. Wade was granted sole custody of their two children in 2011 after a nasty custody battle.
Earlier this month, Funches filed (and dropped) a lawsuit against Wade over the proceeds from his endorsement deals, reported The Chicago Sun-Times.
I know they've had a shaky past, but being that she did bring his kids in the world, he should at least make sure she isn't out on the streets.
