The ex-wife of NBA star Dwyane Wade was arrested and charged with “child abduction” in Chicago over the weekend. According to the Associated Press, Wade has asked a judge to terminate Siovaughn Funches-Wade’s visitation rights with their two sons.
The couple divorced in 2010 and Wade was awarded custody of the boys in March 2011 due to Funches-Wade’s erratic behavior in court.
Wade’s attorney, James Pritikin, filed an emergency motion today to terminate Funches-Wade’s visitation rights, just hours before the Miami Heat were to take on the hapless Oklahoma City Thunder in Game 4 of the NBA Finals in Miami.
According to the AP, Wade, who wanted to spend Father’s Day with his sons, sent his sister to pick the boys up at Funches-Wade’s home in Chicago to catch a flight to Miami on Saturday. But when Wade’s sister arrived at Funches-Wade’s home, there was no response at the door.
