Our friend Jill from the popular sports news website, JocksandStilettojill.com, reached out to NBA star Dwyane Wade’s ex-wife Siohvaughn Wade-Funches to ask her some personal questions like how much did she really receive from their divorce settlement, if she’s still in love with Dwyane, why hasn’t she gotten a job, does she have a relationship with his girlfriend actress Gabrielle Union and much more.
Here are few excerpts from the exclusive interview below:
Jill: Is there a discrepancy between what you are receiving from Dwyane each month as part of your divorce settlement and what has been reported? There were reports of you receiving $1 million plus $25K a month in spousal support.
SFW: There has been no settlement PERIOD. Not even close to the $25k a month reported either. As a matter of fact, Mr. Wade is frequently late on the items he is supposed to pay for. I’ve recently received a noticed about the mortgage on my Chicago home being behind $75,000 and my car insurance has been canceled.
Jill: Ok, so why aren’t you working?
SFW: I’m currently in law school, the course doesn’t really allow for me to have a full time job.
Jill: Has law school always been a goal or did this come following the issues you’ve had with your lawyers during the case
SFW: It has always been something I wanted to do. I put my life on hold when Mr. Wade’s career took off. I raised our son. Even now Mr. Wade is practicing alienation with our children. He’s trying to prevent me from seeing my son’s on Mother’s Day this weekend. Usually the boys fly to Chicago to spend it with me but this year Mr. Wade wants to change that.
Jill: How accountable do you hold yourself in the demise of your marriage?
SFW: I’m honest about the mistakes I’ve made in the past.
Jill: Are you still in love with Dwyane.
SFW: I’ve moved on in my life. I’m not interested in talking about love or anything like that.
Jill: With Gabrielle Union being a seemingly permanent fixture in Dwyane’s life. Do you see a time that you two could be friendly or develop some sort of relationship since she plays a role in your son’s lives?
SFW: I’m not answering any question on Ms. Union.
