Last week, Dwyane Wade's ex-wife, Siohvaughn Funches-Wade, made a bizarre public protest outside a Chicago courthouse during which she claimed to be living on the streets.

Today, Wade released a statement pointing out he pays her $25,000 a month.

It's just the latest round in the former couple's sad, bizarre post-divorce court battles. Earlier this month, she had filed a suit claiming Wade owed her money from his endorsement deals. According to the Chicago Tribune, Funches-Wade said she would "live on the streets" in protest but later claimed she didn't want money and wanted only her "voice."

Today, Wade's attorney released the following defensive statement:

"Dwyane Wade and his ex-wife Siohvaughn Funches have reached a financial settlement. The agreement was submitted in court last Tuesday, July 16 prior to Ms. Funches' recent unfounded and erratic public display outside the courthouse this past Friday. Dwyane Wade has made several requests over the years to settle this matter, despite Ms. Funches having 16 different attorneys and 2 arrests throughout this process. Mr. Wade has provided a very generous settlement to Ms. Funches to continue to live a wonderful lifestyle for the rest of her life.

Despite false allegations by Ms. Funches claiming to be "homeless" and "destitute," Dwyane Wade has maintained over the years financial support to his ex-wife by providing her with income over $25,000 on a monthly basis, timely paid for her home mortgage, maintenance and security at the house, 4 cars, insurance, taxes and all of her attorney fees throughout this process. Ms. Funches has made a mockery of homelessness which is a serious and personal issue for Mr. Wade as his mother was homeless for a period of time when he was a child.

Dwyane Wade was awarded sole custody of their sons by the court in 2011. The safety and wellbeing of his children are his main priority. Due to Ms. Funches' current unstable mental state, her visitation will be determined by the court. Mr. Wade continues to hope that one day he will have a civil relationship with his ex-wife for the sake of their sons."

well let's do the math - if she has a $1,000 a DAY drug habit, and there are 30 or 31 days in each month, then YES indeed this woman is short $5,000 to $6,000 each month of her income to her expenses of she ONLY gets $25,000 each month

and now you see WHY he has custody of the children and she is allowed only supervised visits AND why he divorced her AND YES she will one-day be homeless and living in a cardboard box under a bridge somewhere in miami soon

Truly sad that this couple divorced, however I think that she has a right to protest whatever but not using homelessness as her cause.  Personally, I think that he and his ex-wife are a better looking couple than he and his current girlfriend and perhaps with some counseling their marriage could have been saved as he and his ex were high school sweethearts.  Too back he could not be an example like Lebron and attempt to resolve their issues because of their children.  I know that he is looking out for the best interest of his sons, but what was so terrible that he and his wife could not work out their marital problems? Was it because he was already cheating on her or just felt that she did not fit his style anymore?  I'm confused.
