Dwayne Wade's crazy ex-wife claims to be homeless & he's not the only one with a nightmare ex
NBA Miami Heat star Dwayne Wade, is not having a good week. Just days after the basketball player submitted a financial divorce settlement in court and ended what has already been a six-year battle, his ex-wife Siohvaughn Funches is taking to the streets to condemn him--literally.
Despite winning a reported cool $5 million in the settlement, Funches has recently been claiming to be homeless, even going so far as to camp outside Chicago's Daley Center with a handwritten sign that read "NBA Miami Heat star, mother of his children on the streets." Umm ... what?!

The behavior has reportedly caused Wade's lawyers to question her "current unstable mental state," which they also discussed in the following statement to the New York Daily News:
Mr. Wade has provided a very generous settlement to Ms. Funches to continue to live a wonderful lifestyle for the rest of her life. 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.
Funche maintains that she's never gotten her share of the millions Wade makes through endorsements or has only received three months of spousal support she allegedly needs to survive. But according to Wade's lawyers, the settlement allows Funches to keep the couples' former mansion in South Holland, Illinois. Throughout their divorce, the athlete has also reportedly paid for all of Funches' expenses, including her mortgage, maintenance and security at the house, four cars, and her attorney fees--all of which allegedly total over $25,000 a month!
Honestly, it's hard for me to believe Funches' side of the story. If she just received a $5 million settlement and hasn't had to pay any expenses in the last few years, how can she possibly be out on the streets? And what would make her think taking to the streets with a sign would win her any sympathy? If anything, it only makes her look more than a little crazy.
Still, maybe Wade can take comfort in knowing that in knowing she's not the only celebrity star whose had to go up against a former love. Below, six other stars with famously bad exes:
Shakira and Antonio de la Rua
The couple split in 2010 after over a decade together--and de la Rua apparently didn't take it so well as he filed a lawsuit against Shaki for $100 million, claiming that she owes him a significant share of "past and future partnership profits."
