So maybe it was more of a meltdown than a protest.
But on Friday, Peter Conn was randomly walking the streets of Chicago and happened upon Dwayne Wade’s ex-wife, Siohvaughn Funches, sitting on a street in Chicago holding a sign.
Conn told Deadspin that he overheard Funches ranting about “$90 million contracts” and “houses on the water.”
It’s safe to say Funches is still having a hard time dealing with her divorce and the custody battle she’s been involved with over the last couple of years.
Earlier this month, Funches filed a new lawsuit against Wade over proceeds from his endorsement deals. She’s claiming proceeds from Wade’s endorsement deals are not being fully deposited into a joint account controlled by them both, as required in a 2008 agreement. The suit claims Funches has been unable to pay her mortgage or home or auto insurance because of funds withheld from Wade’s endorsement deals with retailers T-Mobile, Staples, Gatorade and Li Ning, a Chinese sporting goods company.
Maybe it’s quite possible she is on the streets, or just another cry for attention.
