Dwayne Wade's divorce legal bills approaching $10 million

Dwayne Wade and his high school sweetheart Siohvaughn Funches finally completed their long and drawn out divorce. The two were able to reach a settlement. The divorce that involved roughly a dozen lawyers over two states could end up costing Dwayne Wade $10 million.

“We were at about $8 million last year,” said one lawyer who asked not to be named, via the Miami Herald. “He’s paying more for lawyers than what he is paying his wife for the settlement.”

“It was a complicated case, but it may have become personal.”

Wade paid for not only his lawyers, but Funches’ attorneys as well. Multiple appeals and Wade’s pending defamation lawsuit have also ran up the tab.

The Miami Herald reached out to James Pritikin, Wade’s main attorney in Chicago, but he did not respond to a request for comment.

There is no word on whether this will advance his relationship with girlfriend Gabrielle Union. The two have been dating since 2007, one year after Union competed a divorce of her own with former NFL player Chris Howard.
