Dwyane Wade's ex-wife protests on Chicago street after losing custody battle

The Miami Heat star’s response? #whatyoutalkingboutwillis

CUSTODY BATTLES ARE rarely clean-cut and so it is proving with Dwyane Wade’s back and forth with ex-wife Siohvaughn Funches-Wade over their children, Zaire and Zion.

The pair divorced in 2010 and a lengthy custody battle over the children was finally resolved in a Chicago court last Friday. Funches-Wade was so upset with the verdict that she took to the streets, outside the court, with a sign that read, “NBA Miami Heat star mother of his children on the streets.”

Wade, who won his third NBA title this year with the Heat, posted an Instagram message hours after the street protest in Chicago. It contained the hastags #REALLY #whatyoutalkingaboutwillis#aintnobodygottimeforthat.
