The saga continues between Dwyane Wade and his ex-wife, Siohvaughn Funches-Wade. This week, we’v learned that she’s a lawsuit alleging that D.Wade is violating the terms of a 2008 agreement that requires his endorsement deals be fully deposited into a joint account they both control. According to the Chicago Sun-Times, the lawsuit claims a total of $2 million in damages from Wade, four companies involved in endorsement deals, a financial adviser and an attorney. So what does D.Wade’s camp say? James Pritikin, his attorney, said the lawsuit was without merit and that he expected it to be thrown out of court. He also said that the lawsuit “mischaracterizes” the terms of the agreement involving the joint account but declined to comment further.

The lawsuit comes follows a messy divorce and custody battle. In 2010, Wade was granted a divorce and the next year he was awarded sole custody of the couple’s two sons. Last year, Funches-Wade was arrested on misdemeanor charges of attempted child abduction, unlawful visitation interference and obstruction of a peace officer after an incident related to visitation. The Cook County State’s Attorney’s Office said Wednesday that all the charges except obstruction of a peace officer have been dismissed. Meanwhile, D.Wade and his girlfriend (Gabrielle Union), are currently, vacaying in China.
