MIAMI — Another championship drive for the Miami Heat — more off-the-court drama for Dwyane Wade.
Wade, whose battles with ex-wife Siohvaughn Funches are slowly becoming the stuff of legend, now is being accused by Funches of denying their two children their upcoming Mother’s Day visitation.
It’s yet another Gossip Extra exclusive: Funches’ lawyer says Wade, who’s expected to play in a second-round of the NBA playoffs against the Brooklyn Nets starting tomorrow, is refusing to have the two boys dropped off at their mother’s house by May 11, Mother’s Day.
Just to annoy the lady!
At least, that’s what Funches’ attorney claims.
“Anything Dwyane and his lawyers do to make my client’s life a living hell, they do,” said the Boca Raton-based family-law guru Lisa Macci. “They’ve announced their intention of denying her a court-ordered Mother’s Day visitation, so I’m filing an emergency motion to force them to hand her the children on Mother’s Day.”
Funches and Wade, who has custody of Zaire, 12, and Zion, 6, have been back and forth since Wade filed for the split in 2007.
Estimates of the cost of divorce issues to Wade have been in the $10 million-range – and climbing.
While their divorce is final, a financial settlement between the two is also in dispute – and in an appeals court in Wade’s native state of Illinois.
