Damn, for that kind of money, I’d say it’s probably better to stay married and be miserable (but you’d still have your dough)…
Although the Miami Heat’s Dwyane Wade reached a $5 million settlement with his ex, Siohvaughn Funches, there’s still the sticky matter of custody of their two children, which could skyrocket the cost of his divorce to $10 million f–kin’ dollars!
Per Deadspin (via Gossip Extra): Wade first began divorce proceedings with Funches six years ago. Which has added up to a lot of billable hours. Gossip Extra spoke to one of Wade’s attorneys. Seems Wade is paying for both his and Funches’s legal costs, and that the payments are drawn automatically from a bank account funded partly by Wade’s NBA salary and partly from his endorsement earnings.
The source also told Gossip Extra the bills totaled $8 million a year ago, and that “now we’re definitely at $10 million”—a figure that’s twice what Wade has agreed to pay Funches. Per Basketball Reference, Wade has earned roughly $102 million in his 10-year NBA career, not counting endorsements.
