Dwyane Wade demands psychological evaluation for ex-wife
The battle between Dwyane Wade and ex-wife Siohvaughn Funches is not get any better. The two reached a financial agreement recently, but they are now fighting over Funches’ visitation rights for their two sons.
According to the Chicago Sun-Times, Wade would not allow her sons to go with their mother for a previously scheduled two-week visit because of concerns over her mental health. The Sun-Times says Wade filed an emergency motion in Miami last week demanding Funches submit to a psychological evaluation or lose rights to any future visits with her children.
What caused Wade to have concerns over his ex’s behavior and psychological state? Her homeless demonstration in the Chicago streets recently.
“S.L.’s [Funches-Wade’s] statements, behavior, and her demeanor in court reflect that she is presently lost, angry and desperate. Her behavior is not in the children’s best interests…D.T. [Wade] requests that this Court immediately suspend S.L.’s timesharing…pending the results of a psychological evaluation of S.L.,” Wade’s filing states.
Funches defended herself, telling the Sun-Times in a statement that this is how Wade responds anytime she speaks out publicly about their situation. She also says she should have been allowed custody of their sons for the planned two-week visit pending the outcomes of a hearing. A 2011 judgment calls for the parents to have alternating two-week blocks of custody of their children during the summer. Wade has full custody of their sons otherwise.
Wade and Funches were high school sweethearts and married in 2002. Wade filed for divorce in 2007. What a nasty, nasty situation.
