It’s time to pay the piper — at least that’s what Dwayne Wade’s ex says. According to court docs, Siovaughn Funches believes that she is entitled to at least $10 million from her ex-husband because many of his endorsement deals occurred while they were married. Bossip reports:
Funches said since she supported him before he went pro and helped him develop his career in the NBA, she deserves a stake in Wade’s endorsements for companies like T-Mobile, Staples and Gatorade, as well as his royalties and other revenue, according to her new complaint in her malpractice case against her former lawyer, which she filed last week in Cook County Circuit Court.
Wade initially paid Funches a $5 million settlement plus handed over their marital home, but last year Funches sued her lawyer, Brian Hurst, because she said his handling of the case screwed her out of a bigger settlement. Funches said Hurst never showed her Wade’s business contracts, so she had no idea how much he made and how much she could lay claim to. She said the lawyer pressured her into taking the settlement instead of going to trial, leaving her with much less than she believed she was supposed to get.
