Dwyane Wade dealing with divorce battle
Miami Heat superstar Dwyane Wade is expected in a Chicago courtroom Monday for the start of a trial expected to determine how much he’ll have to pay his ex-wife for their divorce. Wade, 31, who just won his third NBA title with the Heat, has been officially divorced from high-school sweetheart Siohvaughn Funches, the mother of his two boys, for a year. But a judge who pronounced them split postponed the haggling over marital distribution as Funches got $35,000 a month as part of a temporary deal. The trial to hammer out a permanent deal is expected to last for an entire month. “It’s unusually long, but it’s very complicated,” said Lisa Macci, Funches’ Boca Raton attorney. One of the last witnesses deposed was team president Pat Riley, who sat down with Wade’s and Funches’ legal teams in Coral Gables June 25. Riley’s deposition became controversial because during the Heat’s championship run, team representatives were accused of trying to make it harder for Funches’ process servers to subpoena Riley. “Coach Riley was very cordial to everyone,” Macci said. “He was very professional and wasn’t evasive, which is a refreshing change in this case.”
