Miami Heat's Dwyane Wade Custody Battle Rages On, Ex-Wife Unstable?

According to the Miami Herald, Miami Heat star Dwyane Wade was forced to hand his children over to his ex-wife, Siohvaughn Funches, as custom to her visitation schedule. When Wade refused to do so pending she take a psychological evaluation, the court had to step in and take matters into their own hands.

It was reported that Wade felt Funches’ extremely strange and overly aggressive behavior during their divorce proceedings was something to take note of, especially when she sat outside the Chicago courthouse with a sign stating she was homeless and telling her side of the story to any reporters who would listen.

Wade shares two children with Funches by the name’s of Zion, 9, and Zaire, 4. Wade filed for divorce in 2007 and after a tireless battle in the courts, was granted sole custody in 2011. But the battle wears on as Siohvaughn has recently been granted visitation rights and was to have her second visitation last week, but according to her attorney, Wade kept them from her.

To add to the difficulties, Wade and Funches are apparently working out a $5 million divorce settlement that is yet to be signed by either party.

Now I am not one to pry, but it seems as though Funches has been playing with Wade’s head for quite some time now. And yes, she deserves to see her children, but not if she is psychologically unstable. It’s come to my attention that the only one who suffers in this situation are the children, who are consistently subjected to overzealous media, who trying to get the best scoop and are hearing all these terrible things about each one of their parents. I wish the best for D-Wade and I hope that when all is settled and done, he and his two boys are happy and content.
