As the Miami Heat continues on their journey, trying to achieve a second consecutive championship, one person waiting nearby for an opportunity to rain on their parade is the ex-wife of Dwyane Wade, Siohvaughn Funches-Wade. Funches-Wade is claiming that she’s been deprive the opportunity to spend time with her two children that a court previously granted. One issue, according to Gossip Extra, steams from Wade allowing their 11-year-old son Zaire to play basketball on a team that travels periodically to Detroit. “A parent’s right to see a child takes precedent over basketball,” said Boca Raton lawyer Lisa Macci, Funches-Wade’s attorney. “She traveled to Miami recently to see her children but was told when she got here that her older son was playing basketball in Detroit. “If the mother had done that, the father would be screaming parental alienation.” Although Wade has full custody of the children, Funches-Wade, Wade’s high school sweetheart, was granted visitation rights every other weekend and on certain holidays. In addition to visitation, the court also appointed Wade the responsibility of covering his ex-wife’s expenses to fly to Miami and stay for the weekend. However, Funches-Wade claims she hasn’t been reimbursed in a timely fashion, which in return she has decided to file her own set of motions before the court. For nearly three years these two have been fighting in court. When is it enough?  I can understand a mother wanting what’s right for her child, and I could understand a father wanting to ensure his children are safe and in a loving environment. However at some point at least for the sake of the kids, I hope these two can find a common ground. The numerous court cases and public slander will only hinder the children later on. Hopefully these two can find a resolution.
