While Gabrielle Union is using her bedroom skills to help Dwyane Wade get through a tough loss at the hands of the San Antonio Spurs, it appears the NBA star may have to gear up to fight his ex-wife in court yet again.

According to reports, Siohvaughn Funches-Wade is suing the athlete, again. Chicago Sun-Times writes:

She says Wade’s attorney James Pritikin “conspired” with Dolton officers and Wade’s pal, New Lenox mayor Tim Balderman, to have her falsely arrested for child abduction for failing to turn over her kids to her ex as directed by a judge.

Though the charges were later dropped, Pritikin at the time used the incident to argue that Wade should be given full-time custody of the couple’s two young sons.

Funches-Wade, who is acting as her own attorney, says she suffered a torn rotator cuff, asthma attack and a panic attack due to her rough treatment during the arrest.

The lawsuit, which seeks unspecified damages in excess of $50,000, isn’t the first Funches-Wade has filed in recent months.


  1. Siohvaughn really trying to kick Wade while he is down. I would feel bad for him but I can’t help but feel like he would do the same thing to her so whatever.

  2. LOL. Can she even go a year without suing him? I used to ride with her but now I’m seeing she’s just as messy as D Wade is. Both of them need to stop.

  3. I try so hard to side with Sio but I really don’t understand her. Seriously why even sue for this now? It just seems real spiteful.

  4. Like Gabby Sio better enjoy hitting up D Wade for funds now because he’ll be retired soon with those bad knees of his.

  5. Well if he lied and she was hurt because of it, he should pay up. It doesn’t matter when it happened. She can sue at anytime.
