In a recent interview with CBS 2’s Suzanne Le Mignot in Chicago, Siohvaughn Funches-Wade discussed life following her divorce from Miami Heat star Dwyane Wade. The two were engaged in a highly contested divorce and custody battle. Ultimately, after the bitter fight Wade was awarded custody of their two children, 10-year-old Zaire and 5-year-old Zion. However, the former Mrs. Wade says she hasn’t seen her kids since August.
She’s fighting mad and said she is not giving up on the custody fight:
“I love them very, very much and I am doing everything, everything I possibly can,” Funches-Wade says. “I’m using every dime that i have and fighting in every way I know how to fight. I will not give up.”
After her recent arrest for allegedly not turning over her children on time after a visit, a judge restricted her visitation. Funches-Wade says her first scheduled visit didn’t even happen.
She says her second visit was cut short because a judge allowed wade to take the kids to the London Olympics.
“Their job is not to facilitate an image — it’s to be loved by their dad,” she says. “I am being their voice when they can’t speak for themselves, and I’m going to continue to do that.”
Funches-Wade is now going to law school and wants to use her degree to help others. All of the charges against her except one have been dropped.
Dwayne Wade’s attorney had no comment about this story.
