Dwyane Wade’s ex-wife Siohvaughn Funches lets home get into foreclosure

Siohvaughn Funches Dwyane Wade

Dwyane Wade’s ex-wife Siohvaughn Funches has not been doing well since she split from the Miami Heat star several years ago. There has been plenty of evidence of that over the years, like, for example, the fact that she has reportedly allowed her home to get into foreclosure.

According to legal documents obtained by TMZ, Wade has stopped making payments on the $225,000 he owes on his 7,800-square foot home in South Holland, Illinois. Wade and Funches lived there together with their two children before Funches filed for divorce in 2007. However, Wade’s people say he doesn’t owe anything — Funches does.

D-Wade’s attorney told TMZ that Wade and Funches finally reached a settlement last year after years of battling in court. In addition to a large sum of money, Funches got the Chicago suburb home and assumed the mortgage payments. Wade’s attorney said Funches simply stopped making the payments but they are not Wade’s responsibility.

Some of the divorce proceedings between Wade and Funches are still ongoing. Siohvaughn recently asked a judge to step down from their case because she believes he is too star-struck by Wade. This is the same woman who sued the police department and once pretended to be homeless on the streets of Chicago to make Wade look bad. She is, by all indications, a mess.

Dwyane Wade’s ex-wife Siohvaughn Funches thinks judge is too star-struck

Dwyane Wade Siohvaughn FunchesDwyane Wade’s ex-wife Siohvaughn Funches loves a good courtroom battle, and it sounds like she has found something new to complain about in her ongoing divorce settlement hearings with the Miami Heat star. According to court documents obtained by Gossip Extra, Funches believes the judge overseeing the proceedings is too star-struck by Wade to be objective.

Funches asked in a recent motion that Family Court Judge George Sarduy step down from the case. One judge has already had to step down from the case, but Sarduy refused.

Funches listed several reasons for wanting Sarduy to step down. She was denied a request for an emergency meeting on June 22 and claims she lost two weeks with the couple’s children because Sarduy accommodated Wade’s travel plans. She also said Sarduy “seemed intentive and argued in favor of Wade” during Wade’s testimony at a July 3 hearing.

In addition, Funches even pointed to an instance where Sarduy allegedly introduced his wife to the court “as Wade looked on.” Funches’ attorney claims Sarduy had never called attention to his wife in a courtroom before.

“The court treated (Funches) not as if she were the mother of the children but almost as if she were an insignificant Heat groupie,” the motion read.

Sarduy denies that he has been anything but impartial.

“The trial court … has been and will continue to be fair and impartial,” his order read. “The court harbors no ill will towards either party.”

Wade and Funches have been battling in court for years. Funches has sued the police department and acted homeless in the streets of Chicago along the way. She is the definition of a loose cannon.

Dwyane Wade knew on flight from Las Vegas LeBron was going to Cleveland

LeBron James Dwyane Wade

Remember that infamous flight LeBron James and Dwyane Wade shared from Las Vegas to Miami prior to James announcing he would sign with the Cavaliers? Remember how people started reporting that LeBron going to Cleveland wasn’t a done deal anymore? Yeah, turns out that was all B.S.

Wade said Friday that he could tell LeBron was going to Cleveland just based on the way his former teammate was acting.

“Yeah, I went to sleep knowing,” Wade said Friday before his annual Fantasy Basketball Camp via the South Florida Sun-Sentinel. “He called me the next day. But I knew then. Obviously he still had to say the final yay or nay, but I knew. I could tell.”

That flight from Vegas to Miami was supposedly on Thursday night. James made his announcement on Friday.

Though LeBron is going to another team, Wade says he supports him.

“As his friend, I’m just supportive,” Wade said. “As crazy as that might sound, I’m supportive of my friends doing what makes them happy. Obviously, same thing with him in this situation. You’ve gotta do what makes you happy — selfishly do what makes you happy. The decision to go back home was that.”

It’s pretty funny that people thought because they were flying together it meant LeBron was going back to Miami. Like Wade said, they can still be friends even though they’re no longer teammates. This was about business, not friendship, and James did what was best for his business.

H/T Ball Don’t Lie

Dwyane Wade said kid at his camp asked him why he flopped in Finals

Dwyane Wade flopDwyane Wade is no stranger to flopping. The Miami Heat star’s most blatant offense came during Game 2 of the NBA Finals, when he drew a foul on Manu Ginobili with a successful acting job. He was later fined $5,000 by the NBA. Wade was also grilled by a child about the play.

Earlier this week, Wade told a funny story while answering questions from reporters at his and Brandon Marshall’s sports and cheerleading academy. Apparently one of his campers demanded an explanation for his flop on Ginobili.

“One kid asked me why did I flop. I was about to get him kicked out of the camp,” Wade joked. “He said it like three times. I thought he was joking. I was like, ‘Are you serious?’ He’s like, ‘Yeah, why did you flop?’ His dad put him up to that — Spurs fan.”

Hey, we were all thinking it. D-Wade’s flop in the Finals wasn’t his first and likely won’t be his last. If you’re going to make that a part of your game, at least be honest about it with the children.

H/T The Big Lead

Dwyane Wade will re-sign with Heat

dwyane-wadeLike Chris Bosh, Dwyane Wade is not jumping ship just because LeBron James has returned home to Cleveland. On Tuesday afternoon, Wade announced on social media that he will be staying with the Miami Heat.

“Home Is Where The Heart Is…,” he wrote on Instagram. “My Home,My City,My House..#HeatLifer.”

Brian Windhorst of ESPN added that Wade has finalized his new deal with the Heat and expects to sign as early as Tuesday afternoon. D-Wade opted out of the remaining two years and roughly $42 million remaining on his last contract, and his new deal will reportedly help the Heat free up cap space by costing about $5 million less per season over a longer-term deal.

When LeBron announced he was returning to the Cavaliers, it appeared the Heat could be on the verge of falling apart. It looked like Bosh was going to sign with the Houston Rockets until the Heat made him a priority and offered him a max contract. Wade also drew some interest from the Chicago Bulls, whom he seriously considered signing with earlier in his career.

Wade, 32, looked old and slow during the playoffs last year. If he can get healthy during the offseason, he should still have a few good years left in his legs. Life will obviously be a lot more difficult for the Heat with LeBron gone, but Bosh and Wade should keep them in the hunt if they have the right supporting cast.

Bulls reach out to Dwyane Wade

Dwyane WadeThe impact of LeBron James leaving the Miami Heat for the Cleveland Cavaliers is already being felt.

Not only has LeBron left for Cleveland, but Chris Bosh may be on his way to Houston. And if that’s not enough, Dwyane Wade may have some options, too.

According to Yahoo! Sports’ Adrian Wojnarowski, the Chicago Bulls have reached out to Dwyane Wade to gauge his interest.

Wade is from Chicago. Recall that before James and Bosh signed on to join Wade in Miami in 2010, Wade visited with the Bulls as a free agent and said he gave them serious consideration.

The Bulls are currently waiting to hear back from Carmelo Anthony about whether he will sign with them or remain with the Knicks. They obviously feel that Wade is a good backup option to explore.

Dwyane Wade, Chris Bosh, Udonis Haslem opt out of contracts

dwyane-wade-ex-wife-abduction

It looks like the Miami Heat players will be staying together for another run at an NBA title. Dwyane Wade, Chris Bosh and Udonis Haslem all reportedly opted out of their contracts Saturday. The expectation is that all three will sign longer-term deals for less money annually, thereby allowing the Heat to bring in more talent.

News of Wade opting out was reported by Tim Reynolds of the AP. Wade was due $42 million over the next two years. Opting out should allow him to sign a new contract for more guaranteed money even if it will be for less of an amount per year.

I wouldn’t even want Wade on the team taking up valuable cap space based on the way he played in the playoffs. Then again, I said the same thing about Manu Ginobili last year, and then he turned around and played great in 2014. I just think his injuries have taken away some of his greatest talents.

Bosh reportedly is seeking a 5-year deal for around $15 million annually after opting out of his contract.

Heat veteran Udonis Haslem also opted out of his contract, Ethan J. Skolnick reported Saturday. He had a player option for $4.6 million next season.

LeBron James has already opted out of his contract and will likely sign for less money so the team can bring in more talent.

Now Pat Riley needs to make good use of the extra money by going out and getting some talent to help LeBron.
