Siohvaughn Wade (pictured), the former wife of NBA superstar Dwyane Wade (pictured), is reportedly suing her ex for at least $1 million, according to the Chicago Tribune.
The miffed ex missus claims in the suit, which was filed at a Cook County Circuit Court in Illinois last week, that monies earned by Wade, including half of his July 2006 NBA income, were supposed to be placed in a joint bank account. Siohvaughn is also accusing Wade’s attorneys and agents of conspiring to keep the disputed monies from her.
The lawsuit also alleges that Siohvaughn is struggling to pay the mortgage on her home and insurance on both her residence and vehicle.
The couple, who were high school sweethearts, parted ways in 2007 after five years of marriage. The divorce proceedings were outright vicious, with nasty accusations and character assassinations coming from both parties. In March 2011, Wade was given sole custody of his two young boys with Siohvaughn.
In the meantime, as part of their divorce financial settlement, Wade, who has a reported $107 million contract with the Miami Heat, doles out $25,000 a month to his ex, plus another $10,000 for living and travel expenses.
