Dwyane Wade’s first wife, has lots more to say about her failed marriage to the NBA star amid his relationship with superstar actress Gabrielle Union.
Siohvaughn Funches-Wade took to an autobiography called The True Story for God’s Glory to detail her allegedly abusive romance with Wade and his reported infidelity.
Funches-Wade does admit her fault and said she turned into an “arrogant diva” after her high school sweetheart became an NBA star. She wanted to keep up with the other players’ wives. But their private life was nothing short of a nightmare, she explained.
She called their Miami home “a $4 million prison,” according to Chicago Tribune Wednesday. One of Wade’s former teammates even suggested that she “have an affair” of her own “right after a game while still inside the Miami Heat arena.”
She also repeated claims that Wade was physically and verbally abusive to her. While Wade has denied her reports in the past, she said in the book that he always told her, “I want to sow my wild oats…This isn’t your money and if you leave, nobody is going to want you and you aren’t going to have anything without me. You will end up having to go back and live at your mama’s house!’”
Wade-Funches’s breaking point came when a woman called her at 3 in the morning and revealed she had just hooked up with Wade. She even gave proof as she described the type of underwear he had on that day. Funches-Wade said she has been struggling since their official split.
“I got divorced and had both my children wrongfully taken from me, I lost my home and my health, my reputation was destroyed. But it was all nothing compared to the pain I felt from the love of money. From that pain I am still healing to this day. I have never felt in my life true emptiness until my bank account was full.”
Wade-Funches was also homeless during the early days of their divorce.
Currently, Wade-Funches wants a judge to toss out their original $5 million divorce settlement now that Wade has signed a huge deal with the Chicago Bulls.
