Meet Siohvaughn Funches, ex-wife of NBA star Dwayne Wade. Siohvaughn started dating Dwayne as a classmate at Harold Richards High School in Oak Lawn, Illinois. Despite Siohvaughn, who is a year older than Dwayne, graduating from high school and then enrolling at Eastern Illinois University during Dwayne’s senior year of high school, the couple was able to maintain their relationship. After Dwayne finished high school, he attended Marquette University on a basketball scholarship. Eventhough the two were attending different colleges, (Siovaugn Eastern Illinois and Dwayne Marquette), the couple was still able to maintain their relationship.
During Dwayne’s final year of college (Fall 2002), Siohvaughn transferred to Marquette University where the couple was to unite as husband and wife. As a result, Siohvaughn and Dwayne were married in Chicago on May 18, 2002. Siohvaughn and Dwayne have two children together: sons Zaire Blessing Dwyane Wade (born February 4, 2002) and Zion Malachi Airamis Wade (born May 29, 2007).
As Dwayne’s NBA stardom and celebrity status changed, so did the the former couple’s marriage. In 2007, Dwayne filed for divorce from his wife of 5 years. In the legal papers of the divorce proceedings, Siohvaughn alleged Dwayne had abandoned his children, committed adultery, and infected her with an unspecified sexually transmitted disease. Siohvaughn also went at the length of legally asking Dwayne to name all his sexual partners during the six years of the couple’s marriage. She later withdrew the case for unknown reasons. However, Dwyane chose the same legal way to counterattack and sued Siohvaughn and her two lawyers for defaming his character and causing immense amount of ‘humiliation and embarrassment.
Since the legal separation from Siohvaughn, Dwayne has been linked to several women.
