The bitter court battle between Miami Heat star Dwyane Wade and ex-wife Siohvaughn Funches-Wade has been put to rest, but the barbs keep on coming. A statement from Wade's publicist on Monday confirmed that a financial settlement was reached on July 16, three days before Funches-Wade protested outside a Chicago courthouse that she was "forced to live on the street" because of a failed lawsuit seeking a cut from her ex's endorsement deals. The statement rebuked Funches-Wade for "making a mockery of homelessness" and claimed Wade has given her provided her with income over $25,000 each month, paid her home mortgage and covered her attorney fees over the years, among other expenses.
The couple have two sons together; Wade was awarded sole custody of the boys by the court in 2011.
