This has to be one of the messiest divorces that we’ve witnessed. At the heart of it was a vicious custody battle, and the divorce dragged on for 6 years. But a judge made a ruling on Monday and it seems over for now and a “non-disparage” agreement will keep both sides from bad mouthing one another in public.

Wade will pay his ex-wife Siohvaughn Funches-Wade $5 million, she will get one of the couple’s large homes and four cars, according to the Sun-Times. Wade had supported his wife with $25,000 a month payments through the process and even paid for her attorneys.
PBT also notes that Wade’s ex apparently tried to stop the ruling claiming she hadn’t agreed to all the terms. But it was already submitted to the court and the judge said she had and finalized the settlement. Wade’s ex claimed “my voice isn’t for sale.”
Wade has had custody of his kids since 2011.
“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.”
