Miami Heat superstar Dwyane Wade was supposed to make his two boys available to visit their mother for two weeks Monday but has yet to do so — prompting the ex-wife’s lawyer to wonder if they should have him arrested!
Obviously, D Wade’s six-year divorce battle is far from over!
It’s another Gossip Extra exclusive: As Wade’s lawyers in his native Chicago claimed the ballplayer and his ex-wife reached a financial agreement Monday, his attorneys in Miami were quietly filing an emergency motion to prevent the ex from seeing the children.
Wade’s request to suspend the exes’ time-sharing agreement is scheduled to be heard at the main courthouse Tuesday downtown Miami.
Why the sudden change?
Wade claims ex-wife Siohvaughn Funches is not in the right state of mind to care for the kids!
The filing cites Funches’ strange sit-in protest in front of the Chicago courthouse last week, in which she held a sign accusing the three-time world champ of throwing her to the streets.
(Word is the children became distraught when they saw the incident on YouTube, which alerted Wade.)
The motion also mentions Funches’ breathing difficulties, which caused a recess during a court hearing in Chicago last week.
While Wade gained full custody last year, Funches sees the kids according to a visitation schedule. During the summer vacation, she gets them for two weeks a month, according to records.
Thing is: Wade refused to surrender the boys, Zion, 11, and Zaire, 6, to Funches as planned!
As far as Funches’ attorneys are concerned, the Heat’s guard is keeping them from her illegally.
Last year, Funches was arrested in Chicago when she showed up with the kids four hours late.
D Wade, says Brian Hurst, Funches’ Windy City attorney, is four days late.
“The entire way Mr. Wade and his team are handling the issues with the children is disturbing to me,” Hurst tells Gossip Extra.
Funches’ camp is filing a response to Wade’s motion to suspend time-sharing, saying there’s no legal basis for the request and arguing that Funches is no threat to the boys.
As for the financial agreement that was to pay Funches $5 million-plus to go away announced with great fanfare Monday? It has yet to be signed!
No comment from Wade’s camp, but stay tuned: This saga will go on for a while longer!
