Many people get famous for getting married to celebrities and athletes. But some people consistently hit the headlines over the internet because of their multimillion-dollar divorce, and Siohvaughm Funches is one of them.
Siohvaughm was married to the NBA star Dwyane Wade. She has been on the news since their divorce in 2010 and has continued it till today.
Long Divorce Process Between Siohvaughm and Dwyane
Siohvaughm shared her vows with her high school sweetheart Dwyane Wade in 2002. The couple parented two sons Zaire and Zion. The pair lived as a married couple for five years and had to separate when the differences between them started.
Dwyane filed for a divorce in 2007 and was finalized in 2010 with Dwyane getting the custody of their sons.
However, the terms of their divorce settlement were only finalized in 2013. The divorce was an expensive one where Dwyane had to pay $5.125 million to his former wife for the divorce settlement. The two separated with a massive amount in Siohvaughm’s bank account.
Few years after the settlement of divorce, Dwayne found love in another woman Gabrielle Union and got married for the second time. Though Dwayne had many troubles- an athlete with a huge divorce issue and nine years younger than Gabrielle- she still chose to spend her life with him.
Finally, Dwyane was living a happy life, but Siohvaughm was not satisfied with the settlement and always had a problem with him. When her children visited her, she did not let them return to their father. This led Dwyane to ask the lawyer to suspend her rights to visit her children. He even accused her of having attempted child abduction, unlawful visitation, and for resisting arrest.
Despite the massive amount from her divorce and monthly $25000 paid by Dwyane, she went out on the streets claiming to be homeless. Dwyane always made the timely monthly payment for her mortgage and maintenance of the house, cars, insurance, and taxes.
She alleged the police for claiming that she was attacked and also testified her ex-husband’s attorney for falsely accusing her of child abduction. She also opened the case again citing her lawyer of accepting the 5 million dollar settlement without her consent. So, she never missed a chance to gain sympathy from the public and the attention of the media.

The basketball star’s ex-wife has posted some pictures with her sons captioning it to be the priceless moments. However, her children now reside with their father in Chicago as Dwyane moved from Miami Heats to Chicago Bulls.
Supported A Gay Son; Zion Wade
Complications might have intensified for Zion Wade, son of Dwyane Wade, as he visited Miami Beach Pride parade after he announced his sexuality revealing that he is gay. However, his family supported him for what he has been through. Dwyane shared several pictures of his family of the event on Instagram where Zion flaunted a massive smile on his face alongside Gabrielle Union as well as his siblings.
Back in February 2019, Dwyane publicly supported Zion's charity fashion show, “A Night on the Runwade.” In one of the photos, Dwyane wrote; It's a family thing, supporting his awkward prepubescent and adolescent years. Similarly, Ziare portrayed his support to him with his caption, '“Love you, lil bro, no matter what.”
Likewise, Gabrielle Union did not miss exhibiting her love and harness on social media. She stated that her family members support each other with pride in one of the pictures shared by Dwyane Wade on Instagram.

In the following years, Gabrielle, who never wanted to have children, now states that there was no place she would rather be with her stepchildren.
