Dwyane Wade’s Wife Homeless on the Corner, Holding Up Sign Calling Out Wade for Abandoning Her

By  |  0 Comments


It’s sad to see families break up.  But what’s worse is when one party just can’t handle the situation and move on. It’s even harder for NBA athletes, where there are so many people who see you as their meal ticket for life and their only opportunity to live well.  The worst cases are when you see complete melt downs, and this might be what we’re witnessing right here.

Dwyane Wade has a history of headaches with his ex-wife Siohvaughn Funches.  The two got a divorce a few years ago(2007), and since then, things have gone down hill for her. A woman who loses her children is already going to be on edge, but when you compound that with financial problems, there’s no telling what you’re going to get.

Funches sued Wade recently to get some of the money from his endorsement deals. But she apparently is worse off than people thought.  According to, Funches is sitting on the corner in downtown Chicago, just as a homeless person would.  She is also holding up a sign that says “NBA Miami Heat Star Mother of His Children on the Streets.”

This might be rock bottom for Funches, who has been a thorn in the side of Wade for years.  Wade is flying high after winning his second NBA title in a row.  While all this is going on, his ex-wife and high school sweetheart was last seen on the street mumbling about “$90 million dollar contracts” and other things.  Maybe the poor woman needs help, and not just financial help.

This is very, very sad.
